Here is a patch I did today in about ten minutes. I had to rough the donor piece on the concrete to match the worn traffic area.

How much do you charge to do small patches like that? I used to do simple repairs until my tool box walked off my van but I am thinking about doing them again.
40 bucks on these move outs, they always bite because they do not want to lose their deposit.

Do you cut it out with a razor knife or those scissors pictured?

How much time for the iron?
20 seconds then I move the iron

Yes I have dyed thousands of carpets in my career. not as many in the last few years but back in the day I dyed a couple a day.
I need to learn how to do that, I do a lot of military housing and they only have 2 basic colors.

I like how you removed the paper from the edges of the seam tape .
I do that too. I have done patches this way as well. Usually though, I use a glue gun. I've always used plain tape. No glue, just the silk, but I'm having a hard time finding it now.
(Don't need those fancy high priced irons all the time. ) Especially in a setting where you can't charge an arm and leg for it. The tape alone , with the metal is really expensive.
