Why use Iron On Labels?
Crafters certainly know how to sew in their labels but ironing your labels offers one unique advantage: TIME! Iron On labels can save you an enormous amount of time.
How to use iron on labels?
1. Set the iron to cotton or highest heat setting–do not use the steam setting. Iron must be fully heated.
2. Place label on garment in desired position.
3. Put a pressing cloth (very thin piece of fabric) over the label. Holding the iron flat, firmly press the labels in place for 15 seconds. DO NOT move the iron around.
4. Allow the garment to cool down. If you can still peel the label off with your fingernail, your iron is not hot enough. Use another iron to re-apply it for 15-20 seconds.
Suggestion: Try 1 or 2 labels then wash them. Make sure the iron is hot enough and labels are secure before applying the lot. Wunderlabel’s labels are also thin enough to be sewn on if for whatever reason you prefer later on.
