How to Apply Iron-on Patches

Here’s our recommended way to attach iron-on patches:

  1. Place patch on garment, embroidery facing up.
  2. Heat the iron and set it to “wool” setting.
  3. Cover the patch with a damp press cloth and press firmly for 10-15 seconds. DO NOT LET THE IRON TOUCH THE EMBROIDERED SIDE DIRECTLY. 
  4. Turn garment inside out, and iron the back of the patch for 15-20 seconds.
  5. Let cool for a minute. If edge of patch can be lifted, repeat steps above.

To ensure that patch stays in place after several washings, we recommend securing the edges of the patch with a few stitches.
