 Iron On Instructions

 

 

 

Heat seal to polyester/cotton fabrics. Do not apply to rayon, nylon, or tri-acetate fabrics. Once applied, appliqué is permanently attached to garment and is washable, dryable and dry cleanable. It is recommended that the garment be turned inside out during washing.


EMBROIDERED PATCHES

USING AN IRON:
1. Pre-heat iron to “cotton” setting. DO NOT USE STEAM DURING APPLICATION
2. Position appliqué on garment and cover design with thin pressing cloth.
3. Press straight down for 25 seconds with constant pressure - NO BACK AND FORTH MOTION.
4. Allow to cool thoroughly before using.

USING A HEAT SEAL MACHINE:
350 degrees for 20 seconds OR 375 degrees for 15 seconds with medium pressure.

BEADED, SEQUIN, PUFFY AND VINYL PATCHES

For beaded, sequin, puffy and vinyl design appliqués, heat must be applied from
the back. Place appliqué on garment and cover with protective cloth. Apply heat
for 5-7 seconds to hold design in place. Turn over and heat from the back for
20-25 seconds. Check your fabric to be sure it can tolerate the required heat.
If necessary, reduce heat and extend dwell time. You may need to experiment
until you find the ideal combination of time.


Problem Solving

Occasionally an appliqué may loosen on the edges after washing. This is usually due to using an iron that does not heat to the proper temperature (too cool) even if the setting was correct. If this happens we recommend using a different iron to heat seal the patch a second time. A permanent fabric glue (used for rhinestones) available at crafts and fabric stores may also be used.
