About

What's your story?

Hello everyone, my name is Will McLeod and I live in Columbia, SC. I am a Web Developer and Graphic Designer. I am also an embroiderer. I know a little bit of everything. I have been in business since 1999. I started Embroidery in 2014 because I have always been interested in embroidery. First off, it's harder then I originally thought, however, I will not change it for the world. I enjoy doing this and it's a lot of fun.

When I started doing embroidery, I noticed that many people were not doing patches in my area. So I started to and then I spilled onto Etsy with my patches and it's been a fun ride since. The Etsy store opened on October 1, 2015 and I didn't do much with it at the time. I put my first patches on there in June of 2016 and that's when I started getting traffic. I added more and sure enough more traffic and started getting sales.

Today, I make close to 100 patches a month for orders through Etsy and my website and my passion has become a source of income which is amazing. I am always looking for designs that I can do as patches and I am always looking on Etsy for these designs so that I can help others as I am being helped. Also, I make sure that it's ok to sell their designs as patches before I do, gotta keep it professional. As I purchase new designs, I sew them out and then choose the best way to display those designs. Either as a patch or sewed out on items, like hand towels, and then display them on Etsy for people to purchase.

I also do sublimation, which can be many different times that are custom made. I can do mugs, water bottles, ceramic tiles, picture frames (up to 10" x 16"), name tags, and more. I can also do full color transfers on t-shirts and teddy bears.

With Embroidery, Sublimation, and transfer, your imagination is the limit when it comes to me and my shop. If you are interested in custom items them please send me a conversation and let's get your order going today!

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

Yes, you can buy any of my items at wholesale cost. Depending on the item will determine the minimum quantity. Just ask.

How do I apply the patch?

Iron On Patch Instructions:

1. Garment should be clean & freshly laundered (including new items).
2. Set iron to “COTTON” and allow it to reach the full temperature.
3. Thoroughly iron area of garment where patch will be placed.
4. Place patch on garment, embroidery facing up.
5. Place cloth or light towel over patch and using a slow circular motion, press firmly for 30 seconds.
6. Turn garment inside out, and iron the back of the patch for 30 seconds.
7. Let cool for one minute. If edge of patch can be lifted, repeat step 6.

For permanent application, just sew on the patch.

***Do NOT use on unironable fabrics (low melt-ing point) such as nylons, vinyls, or leathers.***

***Do NOT bleach.***

Custom and personalized orders

Heat-N-Bond is a glue that is applied to the back of the patch to allow for iron on application. I only use Ultra Hold Heat-N-Bond on my patches.

Care instructions

***For Iron On Patches***
If you put the patch on a article of clothing that you are going to wash, Make sure that the garment is turned inside out and you wash it in cold water and then hang to dry. If you must iron, do so with low heat. DO NOT BLEACH the patch.

I strongly recommend that you sew all patches on, unless there is no way possible. This will make sure the patch does not move or fall off over time. Remember, it's glue.
