Heat transfer flex remover - Best product?

Afternoon all!

Anyone had experience with removal of flex from garments?

A good client has rebranded and now wants to change the logos on some unused and quite expensive high-vis jackets.

Recommendations would be much appreciated

place an iron upside down and place the garment on top of it, the heat softens the glue much better than just repressing it again. saved my bacon a few times with this one lol

I've always found that regardless of the technique used either an iron or chemical spray there is always a glue residue left that can't be removed :-( We changed our business recently and our old jackets are useless now to us

That could actually be a plan Chris. The jackets are about £50 each :-(

Thanks for the offer Chris but we have a guy that supply's any embroidery we need. In return he buys print from us. I can just see his face if he seen us with embroidery from someone else! He'd huff like a child lol
