Tip : Minimize lost clothes with Dymo LetraTag iron-on labels

The Dymo LetraTag label maker is an affordable labelling machine that serves many purposes around the home or office. The LetraTag uses 1/2" wide label tapes that are available in a number of different colors.

One extremely popular label tape is the Dymo 18771 Iron-on label tape. This is perfect for labeling linen, cotton or cotton/polyester blend garments.

Basically, you use the Dymo LetraTag to create your label, with the desired characters printed on it, then simply iron it onto your garment. It's that easy, and it goes a long way to minimize lost clothes, especially at school !

Here's the lowdown on how to iron on the label:
(For best results, attach the label to garments with smooth surfaces made from 100% linen, 100% cotton or cotton and polyester blends. Not recommended for silk, wool or 100% polyester. All fabrics vary so please check garment manufacturers care instructions for fabric content).

- Insert the iron-on label cassette into the LetraTag. Input desired text, print your label, and remove carbon from the front of the label.
- Set dry iron on medium high temperature (290F to 370F, or 130C to 170C).
- Remove any wrinkles from fabric by ironing the section where you want to place the label.
- Place the label on the fabric. Cover with cloth (preferably cotton) and press the iron on the label for 10 seconds. Be careful not to move the iron as this may dislodge the label from its position.
- Repeat 3 times with a focus on the label corners, allowing sufficient cooling between each repetition.
