Patch Application

How to attach an iron-on patch to your favourite clothing or gear

  1. Ensure the fabric surface is clean and free of wrinkles.
  2. Warm the iron on a medium setting, about 140-150 degrees Celsius.
  3. Warm the material where you'll be applying the patch.
  4. Place the patch on the fabric and put a thin cloth on top of it to protect the design.
  5. Iron with moderate pressure for 5-20 seconds.
  6. Turn the garment inside-out and iron the back of the patch firmly for 20-30 seconds.
  7. 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.
