Heat Transfer Labels

Sewing is the best way make sure your label stays attached during handling or laundering. If you are not able to sew your label on your item, heat press or iron on labels may be your answer. These labels have a layer of solid adhesive applied to the backside which melts when heated and bonds to the fabric underneath. This is a very strong adhesive.

Iron on and transfer Info: Iron-On application Instructions for Tagless Transfers Labels

Prepping your Shirt: Make sure the material is clean, dry and experienced any possible shrinking. All items need to be washed and dried with no fabric softner or dryer sheets.

Ironing Surface: best results are accomplished by using a thin dish towel laid on a smooth, flat, and firm surface such as a kitchen table. Standard ironing boards are padded which reduces your ability to get a firm ironing.

Lay Out your shirt: Lay your shirt down and smooth-out any wrinkles in the shirt or towel.

Ironing on the transfers: pre-heat the iron at the cotton/wool setting (325-350 degrees) for three minutes. NEVER USE ANY STEAM. Run the heated iron for 50 seconds in a slow, smooth circular motion over the entire label, applying firm pressure. Do not use any fabric between the iron and the transfer. If you should accidentally get any transfer on your iron, allow the iron to cool and then remove the transfer from the iron.

Testing your finished transfers: Lift side of label to make sure it is adhering to the fabric. If not continue ironing. If the paper lifts smoothly remove paper quickly white transfer is still hot/warm.

Proper transfer adhesion: A properly adhered transfer will stick to shirt with smooth edges that are not lifting up at all. Even the slightest lifting on an edge can result in the transfer getting damaged more and more over time.

Washing your shirt: To ensure that your transfer will last we recommend that when washing or drying your shirt, use a gentle cycle and medium heat in the dryer.

** There are suggested general application instructions. Directions my vary depending on iron, fabric and surface**
