Badges are signs of progress and honor among scouts, and most of them go on the uniform. Badges can be sewn on, but most use a "peel and stick" adhesive so they can just stick to the uniform. It's possible to iron some badges on, though this isn't commonly done. Check the patch itself first since some are not designed for ironing. The patch should have a glossy back.
