    those iron on labels

    You folks are full of knowledge and I really have had great luck with getting what I need

    I learned to get that iron on paper to print labels from my computer to iron on my quilts. works great

    Have any of you ever tried to iron this on to costume satin?

    Can't use as hot of an iron so I am wondering if it will work

    Probably not. Its the heat that makes it work.

    Put something between the fabric and your iron in case of meltdown.

    Check the fabric content...polyester...you can probably use the labels (make sure to use a teflon pressing sheet to protect the fabric) with a wool setting.

    Acrylic...probably not...has a low melting point.
