Fed up with trying to sew a bulky school badge or name tag onto a blazer? Tired of loosing your school jumpers because your name tag has conveniently fallen off? Introducing Supermend fabric bonding powder. Supermend can be used to stick on a school badge or name tag with no sewing whatsoever.
Its really easy to use. All you need to make it work for you is a domestic iron, a flat surface to iron onto and some greaseproof paper or baking parchment. This can be bought from any supermarket in the home bake section.
Place some greaseproof paper onto your flat surface or ironing board and then your badge face down on top. Then sprinkle some supermend over the entire area of the badge or name tag, place some more greaseproof paper over the top of your item and press with a very hot iron. Wait until the powder melts into a clear liquid. You must remember to turn your steam off from your iron.
Then whilst it is still hot, peal back your paper and you will have a lovely coating of clear glue on the back of your badge or name tag. You can then simply trim away any excess glue with a sharp pair of scissors, position onto your garment, cover with a fresh piece of paper and again press with a hot iron.
Your garment can then be washed boiled or sent to the cleaners and your badge or nametag should stay in place.
When your child grows out of the garment, you can even re-heat the badge or name tag until the powder melts into a glue again, peel off and use for another fresh garment. So how come you can do this and it does not come off in the wash? simple ……a linen temperature iron is hotter than boiling point in a washing machine.
