Iron On vs. Stick On LabelsLucinda Winston
If you’ve decided that sewing labels are simply too much effort, you still have several options open to you, namely, iron on clothing labels or stick on custom clothing labels. Here are a few pros and cons to each label:
Iron On Labels
Iron on labels are an excellent option if you are trying to order labels for garments you are selling in your shop or online store. These still look professional and come with a level of finesse that establishes you as a legitimate clothing retailer. You also have the option of ink transfers when you opt for iron on, which are perfect for people who have more sensitive skin. These labels can be used in a variety of fashionable ways, with ink transfers discreetly labeling the inner collar of your shirts or iron on woven labels acting as a fashionable addition to the front of a garment.
Stick On Labels
These labels aren’t quite as professional as the other two options, so you might want to choose another type if you are labeling clothes for your store, but they are often the best choice for labeling your loved ones’ clothing at home, including small children and elderly loved ones who have trouble keeping track of their clothes. These labels come in a range of fun designs and are durable enough to undergo normal wear and many trips through the washing machine. They also stick to pre-existing tags, or the garments themselves, and will not peel off after the first wash.
