We are a big supplier of labels for the RAF. Usually the labels are printed with just a surname in capitals followed by a service number. If you don't yet know your service number we can leave a space after the name so that you can write it in later. Our laundry marker pens are ideal for this.
The Iron on labels measure 5cm x 1.5cm which is the size specified on the RAF kit list. The Sew on labels are slightly wider at 6cm x 1.5cm however this never causes a problem and if necessary they can be cut down to size.
Some RAF people like Sew on labels, some like Iron on labels, some like a mixture of both and some like 25 printed labels and 25 blank ones! The choice is there.
The iron on labels can be ironed on and stitched at each end once ironed (just in case you have been told to get sew ons but want to make the job quicker!).
