Sublimation leather patches, sublimation blank leather patches, sublimation leather hat patches RTS
Sublimation leather is matte white on the front of the patch.
Sublimation area is approximately 3"x2.25" (rectangle & oval) or 2" diameter circle and about 0.045" thick, but can vary slightly. Patches are flexible and can be used for many applications. DOES NOT INCLUDE ADHESIVE. Would need to be glued or sewed on to final project. You'll want to make your design with a border roughly 1/16"-1/8" larger than the design area to ensure full coverage.
3M adhesive patches also available SEPARATELY from the sublimation leather hat patches. 3M adhesive patches will be approximately 2.25"x3" in size and will need to be trimmed down for the oval or circle patches. These are offered separately to allow different options for adhering the patches to the final location. (Please note: even when using the 3M adhesive, it is still recommended to stitch the patch to its final location)
Press the sublimation area with the transfer paper face down on top of the substrate.
Press with medium-heavy pressure at 380 degrees for 50-60 seconds. **Time/temp recommendations are just a starting point. Please test your own equipment for the correct time and temp for you.
If 3M adhesive is being used, sublimate the patch FIRST, and then add the 3M adhesive to the back side of the patch by tearing off one side of the protective covering. Peel the protective covering on the opposite side and firmly press onto the final location for the patch for 60+ seconds.
