It’s no hidden fact that woven clothing labels add credibility to your clothing brand, in addition to making people recognize it.
However, for the perfect custom woven labels, there are a few essential considerations when designing them.
While it’s important that a brand holds on to its unique style, certain features can help uplift the overall look of the custom woven label – making it one that effectively promotes your apparel brand.
Here’s what you need to consider when designing custom woven labels for your brand:
1. Look for Inspiration
The best place to start this is your own closet. Take out some of your favorite clothes and examine their clothing labels. Note their size, observe their color palettes, and see where they’re placed on the apparel. You’re obviously not trying to recreate one of these labels – yours have to be entirely original – but at least you’ll have a starting point on what and how you want this label to turn out.
2. Decide on a Size for Your Customized Woven Label
The size of your label will usually depend on the amount of information you wish to include on it. Normally, people stick to the brand name and care instructions for the apparel, but you don’t necessarily have to stick to that. You need to make sure that your label size is big enough to include all the information you want on it. We personally advise clients not to go overboard with the text – keep it concise and effective. Too much information crammed into a small label will only make it look messy and unappealing.
3. Choosing the Colors
This is crucial to the overall look of your woven labels. Choosing the right colors can make all the difference in making your customized woven labels stand out. We always recommend our clients to pick contrasting colors for best results. You want the text and design to be prominent and visible – a contrasting palette is your best bet. Creativity is awesome and there is a lot you might want
to do in a limited amount of label space, but it always pays to uphold the visual image of your brand when creating the custom woven labels.
4. Where to Place the Label
When deciding on the label’s placement, you need to see that it fits into the design seamlessly. The placement should be such that it creates the desired visual impact in an effortless manner. Obviously, the size of your label will play an important role in deciding its placement. Wherever you choose to place it, just ensure it does not in any way disrupt the overall design of your apparel.
5. The Care Instructions
Proper care can actually extend the life of clothing, which is why including care instructions on your custom woven labels is important. If you’re using delicate fabrics that require special care – tell your customers about it – they need to know! Woven labels that include proper washing and care instructions as defined by the commercial regulations for different fabric types, can make customers look at your brand differently. They will take it seriously and you may even be gifted with some serious brand loyalty.
