Designed and manufactured like jewels, our badges are funny and practical. Elegant parades with small snags and other tasks, they will also charm nostalgic decals and lovers of small details.
How do you fix your badges for impeccable (and durable) wear? It’s a breeze.
First of all, choose a material that supports the heat of the iron. Cotton is ideal.
Avoid silk, all wool including cashmere, synthetic and leather.
If in doubt, test by placing your hot iron on an invisible part of your garment.
If your clothing is too sensitive to heat: you can sew the patch or ask your mom/dad/son to do it!
1. Remove the sticker that attaches the patch to the cardboard.
2. Heat your iron to maximum.
3. Place the patch where you want it and cover it with a cotton cloth. You can also heat the fabric before placing the patch.
4. Press your iron onto the coat of arms by pressing the steam jet until the glue melts (this can take between 5 and 20 sec.). Be careful not to burn your clothes! Start with a short heating time, test the glue while waiting for the set to be less hot, check by gently lifting an edge of the patch with the nail. If necessary, repeat by extending the heating time.
5. Turn your garment to the other side and press the iron again, as in step
If your badges are properly hot-bonded, they will remain attached to your clothing even during regular machine washes at 30/40°. We use a professional thermoadhesive that has been tested by us. Its advantage is that it is very resistant once glued. Its disadvantage is that it requires a very hot iron of very good quality. And if you want to make sure they don’t move a bit, you can always make a few discreet stitches. That’s perfect.
