Fabric label basics are a vital part of any clothing designer's or company's required supplies. Clothing labels display the company's name and designer's information, linking the brand with the product as a type of on-product advertising. Because the customer views the fabric label every time they wear or wash the garment, all clothing manufacturers and designers need to understand what an important asset fabric labels are.
The bare bones fabric labels basics consist of woven labels, iron-on labels, and size and care labels. Woven labels are the traditional labels sewn on the fabric. Iron-on labels are fabric or paper-backed labels that adhere directly to the fabric. Size and care labels contain the size of the garment and the care instructions needed to maintain the garment.
1. Sew woven fabric labels to your company's garments.
2. Try iron-on clothing labels to display your company logo.
3. Utilize size and care fabric labels to help inform the customer.
Create woven cloth labels to feature a uniform label for your clothingWoven fabric labels are the most common labels used in the industry. These labels are sewn onto the garment and stand up to frequent washes. A woven fabric label is often designed specifically for the company and features the company's specific logo, color scheme or font.
Purchase iron-on clothing labels to display your company's name or logoIron-on labels are growing in popularity because they cost less than sewn labels while being equally effective. Iron-on labels are available in woven and linen paper materials. Much like woven cloth labels, iron-on labels stay put despite many washings. They are also simple to apply to fabrics.
Display care and size information on your fabric labelThe size and the care of a garment is information that is needed to not only keep the garment in good condition, but also to help the customer decide which size and fabric is best for her. Size and care fabric labels are generally sewn into the garment, but stick-on labels are often used on the outside of folded clothing to display the size with ease.
- Review design restrictions and be sure to request samples from any fabric label company you consider hiring before you place an order.
