How to attach an iron-on patch to your favourite clothing or gear
- Ensure the fabric surface is clean and free of wrinkles.
- Warm the iron on a medium setting, about 140-150 degrees Celsius.
- Warm the material where you'll be applying the patch.
- Place the patch on the fabric and put a thin cloth on top of it to protect the design.
- Iron with moderate pressure for 5-20 seconds.
- Turn the garment inside-out and iron the back of the patch firmly for 20-30 seconds.
- Let the patch and fabric cool for one minute. If the edge of the patch can still be lifted, repeat step 6.
Note on materials: The iron-on application is not suited for polyester, nylon or spandex materials, caps or other gear with a structured shape, as ironing could damage or deform the material. Some materials, like mesh, coated fabrics, sweaters, ribbed fabric, fabric with a lot of stretch or rough surfaces, also may not be suitable for the iron-on application.
Instead, we recommend sewing or using velcro or a textile adhesive to secure the patches.
How to care for your patch after it's secured
- Hand-wash the garment or use a mesh clothing bag in your laundry machine.
- Turn clothing inside-out and iron as normal.
- While durable, patch adhesive may not be waterproof.
