HEAT PRESS INSTRUCTIONS TO ADHERE PATCH TO GARMENT
Pressing time for adhering the patch will vary by the fiber content and weight of the textile. The typical time range is between 14-20 seconds. If you are unsure of the necessary time, start by pressing with heavy pressure for 14 seconds. Then allow the patch to cool. Try to peel the edges of the patch. If they are secure then you are done. If not, repress for an additional 10 seconds. If the edges remain unsecured then you will have to use Liquid Stitch fabric glue (available at most fabric, craft or department stores) to complete the adhesion of the patch to the textile. *It is important that very heavy and even pressure is applied to the patch and that your press is calibrated to 400°F. Remember to position the patch as close as possible to the center of the heat platen to ensure even pressure.
HOUSEHOLD IRON INSTRUCTIONS TO ADHERE PATCH TO GARMENT
Set the temperature of the iron to 400°-F. This is usually the "Polyester" setting or a bit lower than the highest temperature available. Press from the middle of the patch outward toward the edges. The pressing time is usually a minute. After this period of time, check the edges of the patch to see if this area is adhered to the substrate. If so, you will now need to press the patch from the backside for another minute.
