Do you need to track uniforms, hospital aprons, rental linens or other materials?

Metalcraft's Heat Seal Labels are made of a woven polyester and heat-activated adhesive that bonds well to cottons, polyesters and much more.

These labels stand up to washing and drying cycles, too! Heat Seal Labels were designed for tracking items where a traditional label would not work.

These thermal transfer printed labels on our specialty polyester material are more economical than other fabric label options.

Choose one of our standard sizes or design your own - our laser converting capabilities allow us flexibility in size and shape. Add your logo or design with a bar code to complete the look.
