How to Apply an Iron On Custom Embroidered Patch

Application Techniques

  • The best iron-on technique for smaller, more affordable jobs is a handheld one.
  • Heat press equipment is ideal for large-scale, high-volume operations.

What You’ll Need for Handheld Iron-On Technique

  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • Your custom iron-on patch
  • A clean cloth or tea towel

Step 1

Make sure the garment is clean, dry, and wrinkle-free before putting the personalized and custom embroidered patch. For the patch to attach well, the material must also be smooth.

Step 2

Choose the appropriate iron settings based on the fabric of your outfit. For instance, to prevent scorching or ruining your clothing, ensure sure the iron is set to cotton when you are ironing cotton-based apparel.

Step 3

Prior to applying the patch, briefly iron the place where you want the embroidered patch to be.

Step 4

After applying the personalized patch to the hot region, cover it with a washcloth or tea towel. For around 90 seconds, slowly circle the iron over the washcloth or tea towel. 30 seconds is usually enough, though 90 seconds is better.

Step 5

Lift the washcloth or tea towel to check that the patch is applied properly; if it is, move on to Step 6; if not, start over with a new patch.

Step 6

Place the washcloth or tea towel on the back of the garment that the patch is being applied to, then iron the patch for another 30 seconds. Make sure to slowly and continuously rotate the iron.

Step 7

Take the washcloth or tea towel off, then let the garment to cool. To make sure your new patch can endure your normal body movements, “movement test” your clothing and your new patch.

Step 8

Embrace your new custom patch!
