I am looking for some special occasion labels can you help?

We always try to help customers looking for labels unique of purpose, christmas promotions etc, business labels etc and have managed to accommodate most. Though during our busy period July/August/September(return to school period) , we find speciality orders harder to process. If you can try to use one of normal labels, this will be the most cost effective, however if you cannot find a label size/style which suits we will  help, we can make labels to any size and shape, but will charge a setup cost. Note : our speciality is low volume bespoke labels, if you require high volumes e.g. 1000s+ we recommend you try a high volume label producer.

I have had a problem attaching the Iron on labels, what’s wrong?

Without being smart, the chances are you haven’t read the instructions properly, please re-read them and follow them closely, most real issues are from people attempting to apply labels to materials which are not iron friendly ( e.g. fleece) ,you should always follow the garment manufacturers instructions with regard to ironing a garment, and allow the garment to cool before removing the Blue Protective Sheet.
Back to top

My friend managed to apply your labels to a fleece, how did she do this?

We have heard of a technique for doing this which involves placing a pillow case on top of our protective blue material, to protect the garment when applying the label. This technique may work, but we do not support its use and recommend where a garment says do not Iron, you do not Iron.
