Why don't my labels stick to the surface?

Description of Solution 200000019121

When the labels don’t adhere properly, check the following items:


1. The surface must be free of contaminants (i.e. dust, oil, grease, etc).  Clean the surface; most household cleaners are adequate.  Be careful to dry the surface thoroughly.


2. The surface should be at or near room temperature, if it is too hot, the adhesive will not set properly and the label can move.  If the surface is too cold, the adhesive could become less tactile and may not form a good bond with the surface.


3. Not all materials accept labels.  Test the surface by applying a piece of transparent tape.  If the transparent tape sticks, but the labels do not, contact Brother Customer Support at 1-877-BROTHER (276-8437).
