We're taking iron on letters to a whole new level by creating this glossy custom rainbow patterned. Flocked iron on patches have often been used to create dyed iron on letters. We'll show you how to use these 100% embroidered ready to dye iron on letters to create unique custom colors and patterns for your project. I love the high gloss look and the raised letters make graphics pop!
