*Low melt heat seal achieves its full adhesive force after 48 hours. Application suitable by iron or heat press. Place reverse embroidery on heat seal and bond lightly with pre-heated iron or heat press, using cloth over the embroidery face, to protect the fabric and avoid surplus adhesive on heat press or iron.

World Emblem recommends testing the best combination of heat seal parameters before applying the decoration. World Emblem is not liable for any damages to garments during the application process. If a decoration is listed as Industrial, it can also be used for domestic / home wash. Low melt, velcro and pressure sensitive backings are also available for certain products. Several embellishments may also be sewn onto apparel. For an additional charge, World Emblem offers heat seal application at several of their locations.


Top & bottom heat presses are designed for applying patches, while top heat only heat presses are designed for applying transfers.  Please check out the World Emblem YouTube Channel or our Video page for step by step instructions for applying all of our apparel decorations.

FlexStyle is also available with pressure sensitive backing so you can stick it to a hard surface like a sticker. The FlexStyle samples with the brown paper backing are pressure sensitive and those with white backing paper are heat sealable.
