Iron-on ‘Lost Art Press’ Applique
Now you can brand almost any garment with Lost Art Press using our iron-on applique. All you need is a household clothes iron, plus a cotton or cotton/poly sweatshirt or shirt.
The applique letters are vinyl with a soft “flocked” coating, so they are nice and fuzzy, and they recall the T-shirt kiosks of 1980s shopping mall culture.
1. Select a clean and dry garment and lay it flat on an ironing board or a folded towel on your workbench.
2. Set your iron on “high” – you need a minimum of 315° F to activate the glue. (Most irons easily go to 345° when on high.) When the iron is heated, iron the area where the applique will go to flatten it and warm it up.
3. If desired, cut the applique so the logo will cross a zipper. Or to rearrange the words to your liking.
4. Put the applique in place on the garment and put a sheet of parchment paper between the iron and the transfer sheet.
5. Press the iron against half the sheet. Shift the iron a bit as you press for 30 seconds. Then press the iron against the other half of the sheet for 30 seconds.
6. Remove the iron and let things cool for a couple minutes. Carefully peel the plastic backing from the letters. Wait 12 hours, then garment can be laundered and dried as you normally would.
If the letters ever come loose, you can glue them down with a fabric adhesive (we use Aleene’s Fabric Fusion for repairs).
Made in the USA. Garment not included.
