FAQ – How Do I Apply My Stikins ® & Trons ®?

While we’ve designed our name labels to be as simple and straightforward as possible to use, it’s always nice to have a set of instructions to make sure that everything goes just as planned.

Both of our name labels can be applied quickly and easily by following a short set of instructions that go something like this:

STIKINS ® – CLOTHING/FABRIC ITEMS
1. Ensure the item is completely dry.
2. Carefully peel the label from the backing paper, trying to avoid touching the adhesive.
3. Apply the label onto the wash-care label of the item.
4. Using your thumb, smooth the label down for a few seconds to ensure that the adhesive fully bonds with the material.

Do not wash the item for at least 24 hours. This will allow the adhesive to continue to strengthen. After washing, do not be tempted to peel the label from the wet item in order to check the adhesion.

STIKINS ® OTHER ITEMS
1. Ensure that the item is completely dry.
2. Carefully peel the label from the backing paper, trying to avoid touching the adhesive.
3. Using your thumb, smooth the label down for a few seconds to ensure that the adhesive fully bonds with the material.

Do not place in a dishwasher for at least 24 hours. This will allow the adhesive to continue to strengthen.

TRONS ®
1. Use a hard flat surface (not an ironing board). Turn the clothes inside out. Set the iron to the maximum heat setting.
2. Cut or tear the silicon sheet. Each piece must be bigger than the labels. Each piece can only be used once.
3. Put the garment over the edge of the surface. Put a label text up on the very edge of the surface.
4. Put a piece of silicon paper on top of the label. The silicon must be shiny side down. The silicon should only be used once.
5. Iron the silicon paper with the tip of the iron. Press down and move the iron from side to side. Iron for 25 seconds, do not use steam.
6. Remove the silicon paper while still hot. Allow it to cool and check the label is bonded. If the label is not bonded then repeat step 5.

EXTRA TIPS:

To ensure that you get the very best results we also advise that you do the following:

  • Ensure that the clothes you are labelling have been washed at least once before you apply your labels.
  • Ensure that you apply your STIKINS ® to the wash care label and that you don’t apply your TRONS ® to the wash care label.
  • Ensure that you apply your Stikins ® to the side or beneath the tongue of shoes and avoid applying them directly beneath the heel where the text will be worn away.
