Instructions to Apply Iron-On-Nametapes
- Only apply iron-on labels to clean and dry garments. Position the label where it is easily identifiable
- Set iron to "dry" mode or set the temperature to between 130-170 degrees [middle or wool settings, usually marked •• on the iron].
- Place the iron-on label on a clean, dry portion of the fabric and hold the iron flat;
Keep the iron pressed on the garment for 10-15 seconds [Do not move the iron around].
Top Tip: Cover the label with a thin, dry cloth when pressing on delicate fabrics such as pure silk.
Allow the garment to cool. This is important as it allows they glue to bond as it cools.
- Repeat steps 3 and 4 again, making sure the garment is allowed to cool between iron pressings. We suggest this process be repeated a total of three times
* There is just one simple rule.
These labels can ONLY be attached to garments that can obviously be ironed. Please check your garment’s wash care label to ensure the garment may be ironed.
Alternatively, use our unique dual purpose woven iron on labels which can also be sewn in as well as ironed on. The woven labels are also ideal for those garments which stretch, pleated or are difficult to iron
What is so special about our unique material and ink?
Our labels are unlike any of the ones that you have probably been familiar with in the past. Gone are the days of the itchy feeling on the back of your neck because of the coarse, rough finish of the ‘traditional’ sew-in labels. Our labels are an incredibly thin polymeric, woven type material which is porous to the ink allowing it to bond with the ink when it is heated making it wash proof, fade proof and incredibly resilient. Combined with the extremely strong adhesive which physically bonds to the garment when heated and following our simple instructions makes it practically impossible to remove even after repeated washing.
How do we get the ink to stick to the labels so they are so durable?
By using a state of the art digital printers and the most advanced wax resin ink. This combination with our advanced software allows us to control the thermal transfer of the ink coated ribbon directly bonding to the label. This thermal process produces a highly durable, incredibly resilient and smudge resistant label.
