There are many things that need to be done to prepare your child for summer camp, and one of the things that we here at It’s Mine Labels have found to be the most useful are – you guessed it – labels! Children are forgetful, and when they get together in large groups with less adult supervision for nights on end, they tend to be messy as well. This means all of their carefully packed clothes, toiletries and personal items get mixed up and swapped or lost.
By using labels, including iron-on clothing labels, sew-on or stick-on clothing labels and stick-on labels for hard surfaces, you can help your child make sure they don’t lose their things while they are at camp. Order labels with their name in large, clear font and attach them to their pool wear, their clothes, towels, shoes, sporting equipment, flashlights, books, journals, iPods, toiletries and more, and you’ll find more of the things you send them to camp with in their suitcase when they come home from camp.
The label experts at It’s Mine Labels understand that woven products can be some of the most difficult to label, and have conducted many trials to find the perfect labels for these types of products. Here are the basics of what they found.
First, woven products tend to have a more rustic, home-made look to them, and you generally don’t want to finish them off with a label that looks too clean and mass produced. This is why the selection of labels for woven materials is generally made to look slightly more personal with touches like embroidery for the text instead of printed type. The labels are also made from a sturdier material so that they have a hardier feel and need to be sewn on instead of ironed on.
The woven labels can be divided into three main categories:
Classic Woven Labels
Designer Woven Labels
ID Woven Labels
Each is available in different sizes, and the main difference lies in the overall look of each style.
It’s Mine Labels offers many different types of labels for all sorts of products, including one of the largest selections of iron on labels currently available. Iron labels are used on cloth, and can range in use from labeling your own clothing or bedding line to putting fun labels on your children’s clothes. Here are three different types of iron labels that are currently available in the selection:
Standard Labels: These labels are thin, durable and can be ordered with one or two lines of text in a variety of lettering, fonts and colors with or without icons. These labels offer a less noticeable, considerably less itchy alternative to tags, and are perfect for bed sheets and articles of clothing since they bond flat with the fabric without additional stitching being required.
Letters Transfers: These letters offer a tagless alternative to the other labels, and are an excellent option for people who have sensitive skin. They are also perfect for fabrics that are silky and stretchy since they stretch with the cloth.
Ink Transfers: These are similar to the iron-on letter transfers, except in reverse. The letters are the color of the shirt and ink is permanently bonded with the fabric in a label shape around the letters. This type of iron-on label is good for light-colored fabrics that are smooth and stretchy.
