How to apply iron on patches


Using an iron


Set the iron to the cotton or high heat temperature setting.

Lay the garment down flat and place a pillow case over the area of the garment where the patch is to be attached. Place your heated iron on the pillow case and press down firmly for 10 seconds in order to heat up the area of the garment where the iron on patch is to be attached.

Place your iron on patch on the pre-heated garment area. Then put your pillow case on top of the patch and then press down firmly with your iron for another 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat this procedure on the back side of the garment.

Place the garment aside and allow it to fully cool before handling it.


Using a commercial heat press machine


Heat garment patch area to 325 - 400 degrees depending on garment type.

Place your iron on patch on heated area of garment.

Close your heat press at a temperature of 325 - 400 degrees with normal patch to garment pressure for 15 to 20 seconds depending on the garment fabric type. Repeat this procedure on the back side of the garment.

Allow the embroidered patch to cool normally on your garment and your patch will be permanently applied.

We recommend using a hot knife cut border with your iron on patches. The adhesive will extend to the edge of the patch border. If you chose the standard merrowed border then the adhesive will not extend to the edge of your patch border.

Heat seal backing may also be used to hold your patch in place while sewing it onto the garment. We do not recommend using these patches on fabrics with a high elasticity, or on fabrics that can be damaged by the heat. If you’re not sure then please test your fabric before applying your patches.

We hope this helps you understand the process involved in applying our custom embroidered patches. If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact us at any time.
