Tag, You’re It—Fun with Clothing Tags

Monday, May 11th, 2015 | Permalink

For those of us who work in the fashion industry, you know that your dedication to create lovely, trendy, but functional clothing and accessories isn’t a superficial pastime… it’s a calling. You put your heart and soul into each and every design you make the same way an artist is compelled by his or her canvass, or a writer is urged to solidify ideas on paper.

And because so much of your personal identity is wrapped up in your products, your garment tag deserves a fair share of your artistic impression too.

Not only will it help establish your credibility as a designer, but it also has the power to propel your name recognition across the globe.

In fact, think of all the easily recognized labels you know… it’s probably around a gazillion, right? You don’t have to wonder who designed that smashing top, dress or suit… the brand name label or trademark symbol makes it simple.

Fluctuating Fashion Trends and Steady Simplicity

Whether you design products that are on the cutting edge of the trendiest fashions, or you focus on the elegant designs that are timeless, your clothing label should reflect your product. And at Thirty Seven West, that’s exactly what we can help make happen.

Our industry professionals know the label business inside and out. It’s part of our total customer service package. You’ve envisioned a triangle shape fabric tag with neon colored text and outrageous artwork? No sweat! Our dedicated team of consultants and artists can help make your vision a reality.

Perhaps you’d like to create a special clothing line for breast cancer awareness and dedicate part of each sale to the fight against this disease. Fantastic! We can help you alter your current custom label to include information about the program.

I have a beautiful Vera Bradley that was created for just that cause, and I love to carry it.

Don’t discount the power of a customized woven label. It can establish credibility while it’s acting as your “word of mouth” advertising. Call or contact us today to get stated on your unique fabric label.

Garment Care Tags: Unraveling the Mystery

Care Label Machine Wash Warm crop full reduced 18p

You’ve finally found that perfect sweater. You can’t believe how great it draws the color of your eyes and flatters your figure, plus it just looks simply smashing with practically everything you imagine combining with it, right? Fabulous!

But after the first time you wash it… tragedy.

The color bleeds, frayed “unknown” strings appear all over it, and its generally wretched appearance means that the sweater that you loved and paid “way too much for” (as your husband likes to remind you) gets relegated to the pile of clothes that are only fit for “at home” wear.

If you had only known what those weird hieroglyphics and symbols meant on the garment care tag, your beloved sweater would still be an integral part of your wardrobe… not the doggy blanket it’s destined to become now.

If this has ever happened to you, you’ve probably learned the basics of garment care symbol-ology, but in an effort to prevent future fashion catastrophes, we’ve compiled a simple list of the coded language that’s included with all fabrics.

In addition, for all of you aspiring fashion designers, we’ve included a few links to industry resources that can help you decide on the right symbols for your own garment care label creation.

Know your Signs

Every garment includes care instructions. But knowing exactly what those instructions mean can be tricky. The first thing you need to know are the signs… there are 5 basic ones.

  1. Cup shape with waves. This symbol relates to the machine washing of the fabric, and its subsequent dots, lines and other markings indicate the type and temperature permitted for the garment. (we’ll get to those next)
  2. Square shape. Squares indicate the drying instructions, and again, the additional lines and markings add further information about proper drying practices.
  3. Triangle. This symbol is used to indicate bleaching permissibility, but why a triangle, I have no idea.
  4. Iron symbol. This shape looks like a household iron.
  5. Circle. This symbol is used to indicate whether or not the garment can be dry-cleaned.

And now that you know the basic shapes, let’s look at what the additional markings mean on garment care tags.

Dots

The dots contained on the symbols indicate the maximum temperature you can safely expose the garment to. Logically, one dot means low heat, two dots mean medium heat, and three dots (that’s right, you guessed it) mean high heat. These rules are the same for ironing, washing, and drying your garment.

Lines

Lines are a little trickier. When lines are placed beneath the machine wash and drying symbol, they indicate the appropriate setting on the machine. One line placed below the washing symbol means permanent press, and two lines mean the gentle cycle is required. Likewise, on the dryer symbol (square), a single line indicates the permanent press setting and two lines mean the gentle cycle.

Shape fill

This requires a little more brain power… but not much. There aren’t any filled shapes in the machine washing symbol, but for drying and bleaching, filled sections mean a lot. The square with a darkened circle in it means that no heat can be used when tumble drying the garment. You can imagine it like a giant dot that means no heat. The same is true for a darkened triangle (most times including an “X” through it), it means you cannot bleach the fabric. However, diagonal lines running through the triangle indicate color safe bleach is OK.

Other

A few more basics to remember:

  1. If the symbol is crossed out with an elongated “X,” this means that you can’t use that type of care for the garment without incurring damage.
  2. A machine wash symbol with a hand shape means only hand wash—don’t machine wash.
  3. An iron with an “X” covering the lines coming from the bottom of it means don’t use steam when you iron.
  4. A square with a curved line in the top of the shape means line dry.
  5. A square with one single horizontal line centered in it means lay the garment flat to dry,
  6. A square with three vertical lines inside means drip dry.

 

Protecting your wardrobe or the life of your fashion creations is easy once you know how to decipher the garment care instructions contained on the tag. Visit one of the many industry resources to learn more about these symbols and how they can help you keep your clothes looking new!

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014 | Permalink

Does your mom love sewing, crafting, decorating, or designing? Isn’t she simply wonderful…like some sort of miracle worker, always giving, doing, and providing for others? This Mother’s day, show your busy mom that she is loved and that her hard work doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated by giving her a delightfully personalized gift that will enhance her hobby and craft creations. Our moms deserved to be spoiled and pampered for all they do for us throughout the year, and with personalized gifts that are made just for her you can show her just how thankful you are for her hard work.

With our huge selection of personalized gifts, custom woven labels, and printed ribbon selections, you can give your mom something useful that will offer a lasting reminder of your devotion. Woven labels made just for her can be added to all of her one-of-a-kind crafts and gifts, celebrating her as the creator and giver; or choose from our variety of monogrammed, personalized handbags, laptop totes, or iPad sleeves, she’s sure to love your choice, in fact, when have you ever given her something that wasn’t treasured?

 

 Inventive Gifts: Customized Labels

Is your mom a sewing genius? Can she sit down with some pieces of fabric and almost magically produce a well-made garment? Perhaps she’s in charge of the ladies quilting circle at your church, or loves to make doll clothes, blankets, or adorable crafts for the house? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, your mom would flip over custom woven labels for Mother’s Day. You can order fabric tags in practically any quantity, from as few as twenty, to the sky’s the limit. And the wonderful thing about ordering a woven cloth label is that you can choose the level of customization. For instance, if your mom only creates a select few masterpieces each year, you can custom design a sew-in cloth label that is completely one-of-a-kind. If you don’t want to sew in your labels, you can select iron on tags.

Even better, ask about pre-paid gift cards and let your mom become the artist of her customized labels, She can choose from a variety of pre-designed labels that feature a variety of themes, and she can choose the text to add.

Personalized Printed Satin Ribbon

You can order a few different rolls so that your mom has printed ribbon to accentuate all of her gifts, from wrapped presents that are almost too pretty to mess up, to homemade jams and jellies, the applications are endless. Maybe your mom donates her time organizing and helping local Girl Scout troops, cheerleading squads, or sports teams by raising funds. With personalized ribbon, you can print team names, causes, or other information on 3/8” ribbon to use as closures for bake sale goodies. Growing up, my best friend’s mother was one of these enterprising ladies, and she would make the most deliciously-flavorful, giant teddy bear shaped lollipops to sell for our girls’ basketball team during games. They were awesome! Everyone loved them and she always sold out. But now, with printed ribbon, you can order the ribbon and text in coordinating school colors, and have contact information or the team name placed on each one.

 Elegant Trinkets: Just because
