SHOULD I IRON ON OR SEW ON MY MERIT PATCH?

That depends on whether you want your patch to be permanent or removable. Ironing is pretty permanent. So, if you’re putting it on your great grandmother’s wedding dress, we suggest sewing, so you don’t piss off the relatives. On heavy or textured fabrics, we suggest either sewing or a combination of ironing and sewing. We’ve heard that Gorilla Glue also works well for attaching your Merit Patches to pleather or other non-ironable, non-sewable surfaces. Now go patch the heck outta something.

SEW?!? I CAN’T SEW!!

Oh, yes you can. Just get a needle and some thread that’s the same color as the border of your Merit Patch. Do an overhand stitch around the patch. Ideally, you would stitch sort of underneath the border, so the stitches aren’t visible.

I’M IRONING CHALLENGED. HELP!

1) Find the item you want to put your patch on.
2) Set iron to cotton setting. Do not use steam.
3) Lay your garment out on a hard, heat tolerant surface. A padded ironing board is not hard enough. Try placing a cutting board above padding.
4) Place heatseal side of patch onto fabric in desired placement area. Iron design for approximately 30-60 seconds, applying pressure. Do not move iron side to side as this may cause design to shift. Heavier fabrics may require more time, and lighter fabrics may require less time.
5) Allow time to cool, then make sure entire surface area is applied to fabric. If all pieces did not adhere, reapply heat for an additional 20-30 seconds. Allow to cool.
6) Turn garment inside out and apply iron to back of design area for approximately 30 seconds.
Wait 48 hours before washing, and turn garment inside out when doing so.

So yeah. Pretty much just iron it on.

WHAT’S THE RETURN POLICY?

Returns will be considered on an individual basis. Like, if you want to return your Merit Patch because you haven’t been excellent enough to earn it, I’m afraid you’ll just have to keep trying. You can do it!!

I PLACED AN ORDER BUT DIDN’T GET THE PAYPAL PAYMENT SCREEN!

Don’t panic. You may not have clicked “shipping address same as billing?” when entering your info. Or, if the shipping address is different than the billing address, the shipping address must be entered. Also, if you are ordering from your workplace, some employers block PayPal. If none of those things resolve the payment issue, please send an email to info@disorderlygoods.com for assistance.
