Tips

This is the right way to do it!

In order for an iron-on patch to last, it's important to proceed carefully. Here are some important tips for a long-lasting attachment:

1. set the iron to the highest setting, but without activating the steam function. Don't forget to preheat the iron sufficiently before you start ironing.

2. lay the fabric, on which the picture is to be attached, as smoothly as possible on the base. Wrinkles and unevenness in the fabric can cause the adhesive not to adhere properly. This can cause the patch to warp and affect its durability.

3. Iron the area where the patch is to be placed briefly before actually ironing it on. This will remove any minor wrinkles and preheat the fabric.

4. Place the patch in the desired location on the garment. Make sure it lies smooth and straight to avoid wrinkles later. To protect the patch, you can place a thin cloth like sandwich paper, a cloth handkerchief or a kitchen towel over it.

5. Now take the hot iron and iron from the inside out. Use only the tip of the iron and apply sufficient pressure. This will melt the glue in the transfer foil of the patch and turn it slightly brownish.

6. The ironing time should be about 20-30 seconds at medium pressure. Make sure you don't iron too short so that the fabric adhesive can really melt on the bottom and bond well with the backing. However, you should also not iron too long to avoid overheating the fabric. Special attention should be paid to the edges and tips of the patch.

7. After ironing, turn the garment over and iron from the bottom. This will create a better bond between the fabric and the patch.

Be sure to use a suitable surface when working with high heat. An ironing board with a smooth and high quality cover is very suitable for this.
