Frequently Asked Questions
Although our iron-ons are designed and produced to the highest standards, you may have a question about the use of them. Please see if we have already answered your question below. If that is not the case, please contact us, and we will get back to you with an answer a.s.a.p.
Can I put the iron-ons in the dryer?
It's best not to. As you need the heat from an iron to make the glue soft in order to 'stick' the patch on the garment, putting it in the dryer will also heat up the glue and thus making it soft again. And without the firm pressure from your arm and the iron, the patch may come loose on the edges.
The patch came loose at the edge. What do I do?
Step 1: don't panic. Step 2: Fire up that iron again, put it on high and repeat steps 5 and 6 of the ironing instructions, making sure to put extra pressure on those edges.
And remember not to put the garment in the dryer.
Can I use the iron-ons on all fabrics?
Yes and no. Our iron-ons are made of sturdy, non-stretch material. Using it on thin and delicate fabrics or fabrics such as Polyester, Spandex, and Jersey, the fabric could streeeeeetch out from underneath.
As for the ironing itself, you can iron it on to any type of fabric. Just be sure to use a press cloth in between the patch & garment and the iron.
I washed the garment, and now there are loose threads on the edges.
Some of the designs that we sell are designed in such a way that the edges will fringe. This is fully intentional. When the patch has a few longer threads hanging from them after washing, just clip them off and enjoy the 'worn and used' look.
Do I need to sew the patches on?
Although our iron-ons were tested on their durability following the ironing and washing/drying instructions, it may be better to secure corners or parts that are sticking out (like Sparkies tail, and the sparks of the Spaceship) with a few stitches.
