When applying labels, make sure the surface it clean, dry, and there is no soap residue left behind. Lay the label flat on gently press on the surface; smoothing out any air bubbles trapped beneath the surface. Let the label rest for 24 hours before wear, wash, or play. It helps if the label is fully attached to the surface and the edges are not wrapped and/or cut to fit. Do not cut the labels as this may expose the adhesive and jeopardize the integrity of the bond.
