    Heat Pressing Instructions.

    Secure the Patch: Use Thermal Tape (heat-resistant tape) to secure the patch in its desired position on the garment. This step is crucial as it prevents the patch from moving during the pressing process.

    Position the Garment: Place the garment onto the heat press with the side to be patched facing downwards. This positioning ensures that the patch, now on the bottom, directly contacts the lower platen of the heat press.

    Protection Layer: Lay a Teflon sheet or parchment paper over the garment. This layer protects the garment from direct contact with the heat source, preventing potential damage.

    Heat Press Settings: Set the heat press to 325°F and apply 70-80 PSI or hard pressure. These conditions are optimal for melting the glue without damaging the garment or patch.

    Pressing Time: Press the garment for 20 seconds. This duration is sufficient for the low-melt glue on the back of the patch to melt and adhere to the fabric.

    Cooling: After pressing, remove the garment from the heat press and let it cool for at least 30 seconds. Cooling allows the melted glue to solidify and create a strong bond with the fabric.

    Removing Thermal Tape: Once the garment has cooled, carefully remove the Thermal Tape. The patch should now be securely attached to the garment.

    Adjustments for Thicker Fabrics: For garments made from thicker fabrics (like hoodies or jackets), if the patch does not adhere properly, tape the patch to the garment, turn the garment inside out, and press with the back of the patch facing upwards. Repeat the pressing process under the same conditions to ensure proper adhesion.

    Please note – The temperature may vary based on apparel, cloth and other conditions. Make sure to test the right temperature and time before proceeding.

    Washing Instructions: Embroidered patches, once applied, can withstand up to 50 home washing cycles without significant wear. To maximize the lifespan of the patches, garments should be machine washed with cold water. It is recommended to turn the garments inside-out to protect the patches and use a mild detergent to maintain the integrity of both the garment and the patch.

    Disclaimer: Before proceeding with the application of any patches, it is advised to conduct tests to determine the optimal combination of heat seal parameters (temperature, pressure, and time) for your specific garment and patch. We cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur to garments during the patch application process. This caution underlines the importance of careful testing and adjustment of heat press settings to avoid damage to the garment or patch.
