Label FAQ's

LABEL BASICS

  • What labels are best for clothing?

    We offer two choices for clothing labels, iron-on labels and our Peel ‘n Stix Clothing Labels. Iron-on’s are permanent once applied with a household iron and can be applied to any iron safe fabrics. Peel ‘n Stix Clothing Labels are a semi-permanent, removable labeling solution for clothing, which withstand many, many washings and can be applied to garment care tags or tagless imprints on clothing. Household washer and dryer safe. 

  • What surfaces will labels adhere to?

    Waterproof Labels will stick to glass, plastic, paper, metal, and other smooth surfaces.  They are not intended to be stuck directly to fabric and do not stick to silicon.

    Peel 'n Stix Clothing Labels must be applied to a garment care tags or to the largest portion of a tagless imprint inside clothing.  They are not intended to be applied directly to fabric.  Peel 'n Stix labels can also be applied to glass, plastic, paper, and metal. For clothing applications they are household washer and dryer safe.  When applied to miscellaneous surfaces they are dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and freezer safe.

  • Are labels removable?

    Waterproof Labels are removable. Simply lift one corner of the label and slowly lift until the entire label is off.  If the label has been applied for a long period of time or has been exposed to heat you may have a bit of adhesive left behind.  To remove this adhesive you can use rubbing alcohol, vegetable oil or an adhesive remover such as Goo Gone®.

  • Are your labels safe?

    Our labels are made of non-hazardous materials. Because our labels are removable we recommend they be applied by an adult and children are supervised when using anything with a label applied.

  • Do you have labels suitable for both containers and clothing?

    Our Peel 'n Stix Clothing Labels can be used on clothing and miscellaneous containers and items. Peel 'n Stix vary from our regular waterproof labels in that the adhesive backing is much stronger allowing them to stay affix to garment care tags and tagless imprints on clothing. Other than that, they are no different from our waterproof labels. So, use them in the dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator and freezer and more.

LABEL CARE

  • How do I care for my labels?

    Waterproof Labels applied to dishwasher safe surfaces can be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher or hand washed.  No sanitize or pots and pans cycles please.  Do not use detergents with bleach, bleach additives, or essential oils, as these will cause premature fading. Labels applied to metal must be hand washed.

CUSTOMIZING YOUR LABELS

    Yes, you can split orders with multiple names as long as the labels are of the same design.

  • How do I split my order with multiple names?

    When customizing your labels type "Split" in the name field, then list your names in the "Special Request" field separated by commas.  Your labels will be split as evenly as possible.

  • How do I split my order with multiple names and specific colors for each name?

LABEL TROUBLESHOOTING

Why are my iron-on's coming off?

If an iron-on is coming off after being applied this is typically due to improper adhesion to the fabric. This can happen due to the iron not getting hot enough, not enough pressure being applied during ironing, or not ironing long enough. If this happens and you did indeed set your iron to the cotton setting, no steam - Empty the iron of all water, set it to no steam, and set the thermostat to just above the cotton setting (not all thermostats on irons are the same). Be sure to apply pressure during ironing and iron on a firm surface following your enclosed application instruction ironing time. Once the iron-on cools, check the edges to ensure they are fully adhered.  If not all edges are fully adhered, iron again until all edges are fully adhered. You can also flip the garment and iron from the reverse

Why are my Peel 'n Stix clothing labels not staying on my clothing?

Peel 'n Stix Clothing Labels must be applied to garment care tags or to the largest part of tagless imprints inside clothing, not directly to fabric.  After applying the labels be sure to wait 24 hours before laundering. Do not use detergents with essential oils.  Essential oils can weaken the adhesive.

If these steps were followed and your Peel 'n Stix Labels are still coming off, did you ensure your hands were clean, dry and free from lotions/oils prior to removing the label from the paper backing?  Please try another label following these steps and you should have no further issues.  However, if you do please contact us so we can assist you in troubleshooting the issue further.
