Ok, maybe this is a stupid question but does anyone out there know if you can put an iron-on, on a Gusset non-woven poly material? It kinda sounds flamable to me? Maybe an iron isn't user friendly with this? Ugh but I want it to be! These bags are the exact size of a paper bag and they come in colors!!!! They would be perfect for reusable grocery bags! (which they are) but I want to put pictures on them! And they are only a dollar!
I called the company but you guys are usually so much faster!
I've got my fingers crossed! Craftsers give me good news! Please!
Thanks in advace!

You could try doing it with a piece of fabric between the bag and the iron

Like put the iron-on on the bag, then a piece of fabric and then the iron? I know I sound stupid but I've really never tried iron-ons. Huh

Yes, I mean you're worried about damaging the bag with the iron, right?  So do just as you said, the bag, the iron on on top of the bag, and then a piece of fabric on the very top.  Hopefully it will be hot enough to transfer the design but not damage the bag.

Putting the fabric there will also help to keep your iron clean in the event that it doesn't work and the bag melts . . . Sorry to be a party pooper, but I suspect that unless you're using a REALLY low temp on your iron, that it won't work that well.

But I hope I'm wrong!  Good luck and I'd be interested to see how it turns out as well.

I say use fabric glue or even needle & thread instead of relying on the heat activated glue that is on the back of most iron ons, most require pretty high heat.
