How to Iron on a Custom Patches (Step-by-step Instruction)
Once you have everything ready, you can use our instructions to iron your personalized patch onto clothing.
1. Clothing must be washed, dried and wrinkle-free.
Take care beforehand that your clothes are ready to receive the application. To let the patch, adhere properly, have clothes dry and wrinkle free. Then, place the piece on the ironing board.
2. Set the iron to suitable settings.
Set the iron to proper temperatures for fabric you’re using. Fleece, for instance must be washed in low heat while cotton or polyester can stand medium or even high temperature washes. But if you’re working on heavier materials such as denim or canvas, turn up the heat all the way. Special settings for specific fabrics If your iron has special controls, choose the one that matches the fabric you’re wearing.
3. Before applying the custom patch, iron the area.
Secondly, iron the part of the garment where you intend to use your patch. This process will allow the adhesive backing to be activated, so that it melts into and bonds with the material.
4. Wrap garment in towel and press.
Now you are ready to place the embroidery into position. Once it is in position, place a little cloth or tea towel over the area.
Iron the cloth with pressure, moving it in a circular motion for at least 90 minutes. It is particularly important to iron the corners and edges of the patch so that it fits snugly.
5. Patch it on correct?
Inspect whether or not the patch sticks on itself by pulling it. Otherwise, it must be re-applied with a fresh patch. Otherwise go to the next step.
6. Reverse the Material Inside Out
If the patch has stuck, then turn garment to inside. Lay the towel or washcloth over the patch. Then lightly press the iron against it in a circular motion for about 30 minutes.
7. Let the Clothing Cool
Remove cloth or washcloth, and ensure that patch is in place. Test the movement of the patch If it is not tight enough to withstand body movements, keep ironing at an appropriate temperature until they are firmly attached. After the patch is in place let it settle.
Let the clothes be made to order and get ready for compliments.
