How to apply ...

  • Iron-on Clothing Labels

    To Apply

    • Use a hot, dry iron.
    • Remove the label from the backing sheet and place in position on the clothing.
    • Place the non-stick baking paper supplied with your labels over the label.
    • Place the iron onto the label and press firmly for 8-10 seconds for standard size label or 4-5 seconds for mini clothing labels.
    • Allow the paper to cool before removing it from over the label.
    • The heat from the iron melts the label and then as the label cools it hardens again with the adhesive activated. When it is attached correctly you will see the texture of the fabric impressed on the label.

    To Remove

    Removing clothing labels is not difficult when you know how. It can be done as follows;

    • Place the baking paper provided over the label and reheat the label with a hot dry iron.
    • Immediately remove the baking paper and while the label is still hot pull it from a corner.
    • Use a finger nail or a blunt knife to do this but please be careful not to burn yourself. The label will be soft and stretchy while it is hot. The label should peel away from the clothing. As it cools it may break and you will have to repeat this procedure until all bits of the label have been removed.
  • Stickers

    To Apply

    • Remove the label from the backing sheet and stick onto a dry, clean, smooth surface. Drink bottles should not have water in them.
    • If the item is not new, first clean the surface where the label is to be stuck with methylated spirits.This will also help to remove any built up grease or dirt that may prevent the label from sticking properly.
    • Once applied, rub your thumb nail over the top of the sticker to ensure it is firmly adhered. This pressure will help to activate the adhesive.
    • The adhesive gains strength over a 48 hour period so do not place in water during this time.

    To Remove

    • Using a finger nail or sharp implement lift the label at a corner and then pull the label off.
  • Shoe Labels

    To Apply

    • Remove the printed label from the backing sheet and stick into the bottom heel section of the shoe - under the child's heel.
    • Once applied, rub your thumb nail over the top of the sticker to ensure it is firmly adhered. This pressure will help to activate the adhesive.
    • Remove a clear adhesive overlay from the backing sheet and place directly over the top of the printed label. This will prevent the lettering from rubbing off under the child's heel.
