Pressing Instructions

Click here to watch our Heat Press for Garments Instructions tutorial.

To ensure your patch looks professionally pressed every time, follow these four simple steps.

  1. Position Your Patch: Being that your patch will be pressed facing down, touching the bottom platen, you will first need to secure the patch to your garment with Thermal Tape (heat resistant tape) to ensure it stays in its desired location when being placed on your heat press.
  2. Load Garment Onto Heat Press Face Down: Now that your patch is taped in place, flip the garment over and place onto the heat press so the patch is facing downwards and touching the lower platen. This makes it easier to melt the low-melt glue on the back of the patch so that the patch will adhere to your garment. The goal is to melt the low-melt glue on the back of the patch, not the visible portion of the patch you’ll see when it’s adhered to the garment. 
  3. Press: After laying the garment with patch face down, lay a protective guard sheet over it to protect your garment from the heat, then press for 20 seconds at 350°F with 70-80 PSI or medium-firm pressure.
  4. Allow Patch & Garment To Cool: After done pressing, remove the garment from the press and allow it to cool for at least 30 seconds before removing the thermal tape. This allows the melted glue to solidify, thereby bonding it to your garment.

Art Upload Recommendations

All file types accepted, vector files are always preferred, raster art should be at least 300 DPI.

Care Instructions

To ensure the longevity and maintain the integrity of your patch, follow the care instructions below:

  • Washing: Turn the garment inside out before washing. Use cold or lukewarm water, select a gentle cycle, and a mild detergent. Avoid hot water, bleach, and fabric softeners to prevent weakening the adhesive and fabric. Patches from Ninja Patches are built to last up to 50 wash cycles.
  • Drying: Air dry the garment or use a low heat setting on your dryer. Avoid high heat as it can cause the patch to shrink or the adhesive to weaken.
