Dymo LetraTAG Iron-on tape - Usage instructions


DYMO LetraTag IRON-ON Fabric Label - Manufacturers Usage Instructions

Note: Be sure to test the iron-on label on a fabric you wish to use prior to final application on the item. Irons will vary in temperature settings by a few degrees, please do a test label to determine the optimum setting for your iron to adhere the label.

Attaching 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.

  1. Insert the iron-on label cassette into the LetraTag. Input desired text, print your label, and remove carbon from the front of the label.
  2. Set dry iron on medium high temperature (290° to 370° F, or 130° to 170° C).
  3. Remove any wrinkles from fabric by ironing the section where you want to place the label.
  4. 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.
  5. Repeat 3 times with a focus on the label corners, allowing sufficient cooling between each repetition.

Avoid attaching labels to the following garments:

  • Cloth with long strands of thread, such as pile
  • Material with an uneven surface
  • Materials treated for water resistance
  • Heat sensitive materials
  • Dark materials, as they may change color
  • Silk, wool, or 100% polyester


Use mild detergent or alkaline detergents for washing with a temperature setting below 150° F (60° C). Garments with correctly attached labels can be washed a number of times. The use of bleach over an extended period of time may discolor the label.

Removing the Label

  1. Set the iron to a medium high temperature.
  2. Press the iron down firmly on the label and in place for 10 seconds.
  3. Remove the iron, using tweezers take a corner of the label and begin to peel the label/backing off the fabric.
    • Caution: Use care not to touch the label or iron, as both will be hot.
  4. lf the label cools, repeat step 2.

you can also make a sew on tag for towels etc by ironing the label onto cotton material/tape and then sewing it on as for cloth tapes. :-)
