Heat Transfer Labels

Heat Transfer Labels are also called “tag-less tags” because the image, artwork or label information is fixed directly over the garment. The clothing industry is taking advantage of this well known method commonly used to customize t-shirts, in order to get rid of traditional labels.

Anyone who don’t want to be bother by an enoying piece of fabric scraping at their necks appreciate tag-free labels.

This is why clothing brands producing t-shirts or bodysuits specially made for athletes (and for newborns as well) prefer Heat transfer labels to better please their customers needs.

Want to Find Out More About Heat Transfer Labels

When you are looking for a way to take your products to the next level, you think branding. And in the world of apparel and accessories, there is nothing more than will convey ‘professional’ as a high quality clothing label.

How to apply heat transfer labels?

This is by far the easiest way for attaching a label to your cloth! Because: No label, no sewing. However you should read the following advices in order to do it as a pro…

  1. Setting up your house iron or heatpress the right way!

    Whether using iron or heatpress the temperature must be set between 302 and 320ºF (150-160ºC). Warning! If the temperature is below that range the label design could not be transfered properly to the garment. In the contrary, if the temperature is above the optimous range, the vellum backing will probably melt.
    In the case you be using a common iron, we highgly recommend you to AVOID USIGN STEAM. Additionally, the dial should be pointing between the cotton and wool setting.

  2. Placing the sheet or label the right way…

    Contrary to some heat transfer paper commonly used for customized t-shirts, tag-less tags are transparent, so you can see both sides of your design.

    Therefore, it will be no mistake, just place the label with the design upwards and with the adhesive backing backwards.

    In the case your tag-free labels come with a white face, this must be upwards and the reversed design downwards.

    WARNING: if the adhesive face is heated directly or placed the wrong way it can stick onto the press and it will be hard to remove it.

  3. The right timing! …or how long should we press?

    Heatpress: 8 sec.
    Household iron: 8-12 sec (firmly with NO SWEEPING MOTIONS)

  4. Peeling off after heated.

    Heat transfer labels are of two kinds: hot peel and cold peel, each one differs from the other just in the way they must be peeled off.

    On the one hand, the hot peel ones must be peeled right before pressing with no delay, pulling swiftly from one of the vellum backing corners until it is completely removed.

    And on the other hand, the cold peel ones require you to wait until the heat transfer label cools down again. Afterwards you will be able to swiftly remove them, securing the piece of garment down in order to take out the vellum film.

  5. Storing

    In order to store properly the remaining labels you haven’t used yet, we recommend you to put them all freely into a box at cool temperatures in a dry place.
