Iron-on name labels will allow you to identify your child's clothing and school uniforms.

What is an iron on name label?

Iron on labels are nametags you apply by ironing them onto the fabric of the garment. These tags free you from needing to spend a significant amount of time sewing name tapes onto every item of clothing your child's owns. Applying an iron on takes only seconds. In a matter of minutes all clothing and school uniforms is easily identified! Labelling your child's clothing will make it less likely for the item to be lost and, if lost, will make it more likely that it is returned. No more coats, jumpers or school blazers that do not make it back home or get mistaken for another child's!

How can I personalise my iron on labels?

You are able to design your clothing labels in the same way you design our colour stickers. This means you can choose from a wide range of designs, backgrounds and fonts enabling you to create the perfect iron on. The iron on nametags are 100% personalisable. You will be able to add two lines of text which will allow you to add a first name and surname, phone number or the name of your child's school or nursery.

We also have exclusive Mr Men & Little Miss Characters and Hello Kitty designs for your iron on labels, available as name stickers and iron ons.

Where can I apply iron on name labels?

My Nametags personalised clothing labels are suitable to be applied to all kinds of clothing. The name labels iron on easily to jumpers, t-shirts, trousers, socks and uniforms. The iron on can be applied directly on the item of clothing. The clothing name tag is washing machine safe, dryer safe and will not budge. We recommend you apply the clothing label in an obvious place so people can see it straight away and identify the owner of the garment.

How do I apply iron on labels?

To apply personalised clothing name labels start by removing the nametag from the transparent backing sheet. Then place the clothing label on the desired place of the garment and cover the iron on with the silicone paper provided. It is important to use the silicone paper as this will protect the iron on label from the direct contact with the heat and ensures that no part of the label sticks to the iron. Once you have the silicone paper on the label you should heat your iron, with the steam setting off, to the maximum temperature the garment is able to sustain. Hold the iron over the iron on label and silicone paper for 8-15 seconds. Next, gently check if the label is stuck on properly, if it does not look like it has hold the iron over the label for a few more seconds. Otherwise, remove the silicone paper and allow it to cool.

We advise you not to wash the garment with a newly applied iron on label for at least 24 hours. Instructions and silicone paper on how to apply our iron labels with each set ordered.

  • FAQ

    • Which name tags should I choose?

      We believe there is a nametag out there for everyone! Deciding which type is perfect for you depends on where you would like to use them and the size you would like them to be.

      Our personalised colour stickers are the most versatile as they are suitable for items (stationery, books, pens etc) and clothing, and are available in a wide range of designs. If you are looking to label only clothing or want to attach the labels directly on the garment however, you may want to go with out iron-on nametags instead. For more information click here to see our range of name tags.

    • What size are the iron name tags?

      Name tags are generally small in size, yet large enough for the text on them to be readable. Our standard labels are 30 x13mm. This is big enough for them to be easy to read and identify, and means that they can fit on most items of clothing.

    • Why use custom iron name tags?

      How many times has your child lost their school tie, jumper or hat? Name tags are a simple solution to the problem of lost property. Simply applying them to clothing can ensure that they do not get lost and if lost are returned. They are the best way to identify clothing because they do not require any sewing or fade over time like you may find with sew-ons or a clothing stamp.
