Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: How do I peel off the iron-on stickers and custom iron-on transfers?
A: Our iron-on stickers and custom iron-on transfers are easily removable from their pages due to their die-cuts. Simply peel them off the page, align them onto your product’s surface, place your parchment paper on top of the custom iron-on and start ironing on your masterpiece! You can iron on stickers and iron on designs to customize your clothing and make them one-of-a-kind. Alongside this, thanks to the innovations we've made with our Sticker Maker
, you have the ability to print multiple die-cut designs on the same iron-on sheet. Whether you're making iron-on logos, art designs, or individual names, they will all be die-cut and easy to remove from the sheet.
Q: What is the difference between iron on stickers, iron on labels and iron on transfers?
A: Iron on transfers are also frequently referred to as iron on stickers or labels, however there is no difference between the products. The glue (adhesive) is activated with heat and is otherwise not sticky, thus an iron on sticker or label is most commonly known as an iron-on transfer as the image is ‘transferred’ from one surface to another vs being applied like a label or a sticker. Thanks to the universal adhesive and material, the ways in which you can use your iron-on transfers are endless. Whether you're making iron on transfers for t-shirts, hats, blankets, or whatever fabric you can get your hands on, our custom iron-ons can spice up any fabric (just ensure you have a smooth surface to work with!)
Q: Where should I store my custom iron-on transfers and iron-on labels?
A: When you receive your iron on designs, be sure to store them in a cool area away from heat and sunlight. This will help to protect your new precious custom iron-on transfers, iron-on stickers, or custom iron-on letters and prevent them from curling. If you're not immediately using your iron-ons, it's also a good idea to keep your iron-ons in the package that they arrive in. We ship our iron-ons in an envelope with some cardboard backing, to ensure they stay flat and do not get bent or curled.
Q: How long will my custom iron-ons last?
A: Not only are our iron-ons washer and dryer safe, they will also last for years! So you don’t have to worry about ruining your awesome iron-on clothes for up to 5 years or 30 washes. We recommend you fold your clothes inside-out before putting them into the washing or drying machine in order to help your custom iron-on transfers, iron-on stickers, or custom iron-on letters last even longer!
Q: Where can my custom iron-ons be applied?
A: Our custom iron-ons can be applied on all fabrics including for t-shirts, socks, pants, jackets, hats, backpacks, tote bags, and more! As long as the surface is flat and smooth, you’re good to go ironing! We recommend using our iron-ons on 100% cotton, 100% polyester, poly-cotton blends, or lycra/spandex fabrics.
This makes our custom iron-ons great for a wide variety of use cases, especially uses related to branding. Many individuals that own clothing lines or have merchandise relating to their business purchase iron-ons to adhere onto t-shirts, hats, pants, and more. Purchasing blank tees and printing some iron-on shirt decals is a great way to bring your clothing line vision to life. If you have an event coming up and would like some custom swag or merchandise, this product is also perfect for turning blank clothes into branded merch!
Alongside this, iron-ons are great for uniforms and creating consistent branding for employees. Using iron-on logos, you can iron your branding onto any smooth fabric. This is an excellent affordable way to create casual uniforms for your employees without breaking the bank.
Q: Are the iron-ons clear?
A: Iron-ons are printed on white iron-on material and are not transparent. If you don’t want white, you can choose any color of your choice by using our Sticker Editor’s eyedropper tool for your image! Choose any color that matches your custom iron-on transfers, iron-on stickers, custom iron-on letters, and more. You may also choose to color match the background to the material you're applying your iron-ons to using the eyedropper tool. This will ensure that when the material is printed, it will blend seamlessly into the fabric.
If you're looking for specialty die-cut iron-ons that are cut around the individual elements of your design, we also have an option for that! Our iron-on lettering transfers
take it a step further and are precision die-cut, resulting in no background at all when applied. This is perfect for iron-on shirt decals and prints, and designs that are text-based.
Q: What’s the largest size iron-on transfer I can order?
A: If you order through the custom solid iron-ons link, the largest size you can order on our website is 8.85”x4”. We don’t recommend larger than that as it would get difficult to apply. If you do still need larger, contact [email protected]
and a member of our team will look into it with you.
Q: Will the color of the iron-ons match the color of my design?
A: We use a 4-color CMYK process when printing out your iron-on labels and iron-on transfers so you can accurately achieve your desired or brand color. When you receive your iron-ons, the colors may look different and dull on their pages, but don’t worry, you just need to iron them on to see their true colors! When you design your own iron-on transfers, custom iron-on letters, or iron-on stickers for clothes, don’t be afraid to be creative and colorful!
Another useful tip when creating iron-on transfers is to always design in CMYK color space. Most programs by default will use RGB when you're designing graphic elements. This will mean that when the time comes to print your design, it will be converted into CMYK. Ultimately, this can cause a small color shift, particularly for bright, neon colors that cannot be replicated with the standard CMYK ink printing process.
Q: Why would I use iron-ons when I can have shirts screen printed?
A: Depending on the quantity you're looking to create, custom iron-on shirt decals is usually the way to go. If you're looking to create around 1-100 shirts, it's most likely much more cost effective to order custom iron-on transfers for t-shirts. We also offer the ability to print in a full range of CMYK colors, which screen printers may not be capable of.

A: The smallest you can order is 0.75”x0.75”
Q: Will iron-ons stick on in the wash?
A: Yes they will! As long as they are applied correctly, they should stick strong and last through the wash multiple times.
Q: What type of materials do your iron-ons attach to?
A: For best results, we recommend you apply StickerYou iron-ons to clothing that is made of 100% cotton, 100% polyester, a poly-cotton blend, lycra, and spandex fabrics. So whether you are making special occasion t-shirts, adding your logo to tote bags, or commemorating a championship win on your team jerseys, they are an easy and affordable way to mark any occasion. And once applied, our iron-ons can safely go in the washer and the dryer without losing their adhesive.
Q: Are iron-on transfers removable?
