> Cotton/polyester iron-on labels become softer by washing and do not itch. They are almost indestructible, but you can also remove them by reheating the label with a tea towel and hot iron. Then you can take them out again.

 

Please note: Flex material iron-on labels can be used on fabric such as cotton, cotton/polyester and polyester/acrylic; but they are not suitable for fabrics that have a water repellent or dirt resistant coating, (coarsed) knitted fabrics, spandex or (very) movable surfaces because the label cannot hold itself properly.


Important:

The durability of our labels also depends on the heat, the pressure of the iron, and its pressure duration. Check the garment care label first!

Always wash the garments inside out and never ironing directly on the labels as applied,  but on the rear side thereof. Do not thumble dry. Do not dry clean.

During the washing from 60°C and by the use of fabric softener or wool detergent, or adding stain remover to the laundry, the labels may come off.

Temperature and time may vary by iron and type of fabric!


TEXTILE Adhesive xtra Labels Place this label on the existing wash care -/clothing label or on a similar smooth piece of fabric. Ultimate adhesive strength, the strongest of its kind. Optimum adhesion after 2 hours after application. After about 8 hours washing machine safe (up to 60°C) and dryer resistant. Avoid fabric softener/wool detergent/stain removers.

 

Sewing Labels

We offer a very high quality Oeko-Tex Class 1 Labels of polyester, Nylon / polyamide and satin, printed with industrial quality equipment, for the best results.


High Coated Polyester labels are lightweight, have a high abrasion resistance and feel (even after washing) very soft. The label can be a bit static, but it remains in the form and does not discolour in direct sunlight.

High Coated Nylon (polyamide brand name) is lightweight and easy to fold. Nylon labels are strong, tear, crease and retain their shape. Not without reason the most widely used label type.

Satin polyester labels are extra fine woven, in a special way, making them shine and extra soft. These labels have a great printing result, which remains readable even after many washes. Unique to each application and great result!


Note: Cut edges may fray slightly. Double stitching or fold ends gives strength for best results, therefore additional space of approximately 8 mm each side to sew.

For all types of synthetic fibers, the same excellent performance with wash and cleaning durability usually applies.


Hint:

  • Sewing labels will held better when stitched on several points, the label will wrinkle less after washing.
  • Your sewing labels can be ironed. Please do so but watch the thermal state of the iron.
  • We do not recommend adding stain remover to the laundry, because the printing may blur.
