Stikins & Trons: Don't Get In A Steam - How To Apply Trons Name Labels


https://www.name-labels.com





We've got plenty of customers who are enthusiastically giving our Trons name transfers a go - with great results and brilliant feedback.

As our Trons name transfers are an entirely different product to our Stikins name labels, we thought we'd run through the step by step guide to applying your Trons.

Iron on name transfers are made of an extremely thin layer of material that has been impregnated with ink. They iron on to fabric items, where they bond and fuse with the fabric to create a fully permanent name label.

Each name transfer requires a single iron on application, which goes a little something like this:

STEP ONE:
Place the garment or fabric onto a hard, flat surface (such as a kitchen worktop), making sure to smooth out the item as much as possible - this makes it easier to iron the transfer on nice and neatly.

NB: DO NOT USE AN IRONING BOARD!
Ironing boards do not provide the firm, flat surface that is required for the process of applying name transfers. 

STEP TWO:
Remove one of your Trons transfers from the backing sheet and position it on the garment or fabric face up - making sure the transfer is facing the right way up, or you'll end up with the text in reverse!

STEP THRE:
Place the silicon paper sheet over the top of the transfer - ensuring that you cover the name transfer entirely.

STEP FOUR:
Heat your iron to the highest possible temperature that is suitable for the fabric type you are applying the transfer to and press down hard on the silicon sheet (over the name transfer) for 20-30 seconds.

NB: YOU NEED TO USE A HOT, DRY IRON!
If you use steam during the application process, both the name transfer and your fabric item are likely to become damp, which prevents the two from bonding properly. If either item becomes wet, you will find that the transfer either bonds poorly and peels off or it fails to bond at all.

STEP FIVE:
Carefully peel off the silicon sheet while it is still hot and survey your handiwork!
