We’re already a month or more into the school year. If your child has come home from school more than once without a hat or coat that you’re sure began the day with him or her, it might be time to start using clothing labels.
Better late than never, right? But what’s better, stick-on or iron-on clothing labels? Let’s take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of each.
About Stick-on Clothing Labels
High-quality stick-on clothing labels are among the most convenient option for labeling children’s clothing. These consist of a labeled front with an adhesive back and don’t require any tools (like an iron and ironing board) to apply them.
Stick-on clothing labels, in addition to being simple, cost-effective, and easy to use, are also versatile. Many types of peel-and-stick labels can also be used to label other sorts of materials – so if you have stick-on labels and need to label something else besides kids’ clothing, you might be in luck.
Another selling point of stick-on clothing labels is that they are only a semi-permanent solution. While many of them are made with powerful adhesives, they are removable with intent. So, if for whatever reason, you have (or want) to remove a label, you can.
Now let’s take a look at iron-on clothing labels, the permanent solution.
Iron-on Clothing Labels
Iron-on labels contain a special backing that, when heated under an iron, essentially bonds to the fabric and becomes a part of the garment. Though less convenient to apply than stick-on labels, iron-on clothing labels are the permanent solution and are impossible to remove without damaging the garment.
These are great permanent solutions for labeling items like backpacks and coats, that may be exposed to the elements and need a durable, permanent labeling solution.
While they do afford a permanent bond, it is important to take your time applying them and do so in the manner prescribed by the seller. Some iron-on labels require a thin overlay (such as parchment paper) for proper application, for example, and are only compatible with select fabrics.
You Decide: Where You Can Get Both
Regardless of which style of label for clothing you ultimately determine is the best for your needs, it is important to choose quality labels that are suitable for the circumstances.
Sticky Monkey Labels offers both stick-on (Peel-n-Stix) and iron-on clothing labels that are designed for versatility, durability, and ease of application.
All of their clothing labels are available in several different shapes and sizes and in a wide range of different themes that kids will love. They’re also customizable with names and, if you choose, additional text. Both styles are also tear-resistant for extra durability and are household washing machine and dryer safe.
Their stick-on and iron-on clothing labels also offer several of the advantages mentioned in the previous sections.
For instance, their stick-on clothing labels are not only suitable as clothing labels; they can also be used with glass, plastic, metals, and even paper and cardboard goods – which means you can also use them to label other school supplies.
Their Peel-n-Stix labels are also easy to apply and though you should wait 24 hours before laundering, your children can wear the garment right away.
As for their iron-on clothing labels, they are compatible with cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blends, and acrylic fabrics, and can be easily applied with a household iron. They’re also perfect for those with sensitive skin because they bond evenly with the fabric and don’t produce a stiff edge.
