Iron On Patch Instructions:
Step 1: Preheat the area where the Patch will be applied.
Step 2: Place the patch over surface and Press for 12 seconds using a heat press, or 30 seconds using a household iron.
Step 3: Do not move the iron around.
Step 4: Hold it down for 30 seconds applying some pressure.
Too much heat will melt the plastic, too little heat won’t activate the glue. Temperature must be 270 degrees Fahrenheit. Your Patch will not adhere properly if you don’t use the correct temperature.
You cannot iron on patches to leather or nylon or any other material that might scorch from the applied heat. You must sew patches on to leather, do not iron on patches to leather or nylon material clothing.
Iron on patches have a layer of plastic backing with a thin layer of heat activated glue rubbed on it.
Do not remove the plastic backing from the patches even if you are sewing them on. They help keep the embroidery together.
If the patch does not adhere well to the fabric it is applied to, you may try to use fabric bonding glue to secure the patch, at your discretion.
It is best to sew patch on after ironing on first (when possible).
Hook & Loop Patch Instructions:
The backing is composed of tiny hooks and loops (much like the rough side of velcro) that allow you to attach the patch to a soft backing for a secure connection.
When the two are pressed together the hooks catch in the loops and the two pieces fasten or bind temporarily. When separated, by pulling or peeling the two surfaces apart, the strips make a distinctive “ripping” sound.
A Velcro backing for a patch is a simple way to attach a patch to your jacket, hat, backpack, bag and more. This backing option is very durable and will last a long time.
