If you have just decided to start selling your designs online, in a new boutique, or you are simply a new clothing business, there are certain important things you need to know about clothing labels. Here are a few tips to keep in mind while ordering or designing personalized woven or iron-on labels for your designs.
Ideally, the labels should last as long as the garment does, if not longer. The contact information and care instructions should not fade away. For this reason, most designers love personalized woven labels since the lettering does not wear out. These also help designers exude the classiness of the brand.
Labels should be properly attached to the garment – either sewn in or ironed-on. To ensure ease of application, there must be sufficient sew space. The placement of the labels should also be in a manner that ensures easy visibility to the customers.
Clothing manufacturers should provide a “use and care” label on the garments before selling. These instructions should be clearly mentioned through the use of text or approved symbols on the labels, so the consumers can properly care for the item.
Choose folded labels for your garments if you have to include a lot of information on it. Center fold labels can be utilized for proper segmentation of information. The upper half of the label, when folded will be the front, can include logo and company’s name, whereas the lower half, which would be the back of the label once folded, can have additional information, such as the care instructions or more contact information.
Designers can include their contact details on labels, including contact number, website, or email address. This will help the customers in contacting the firm easily in case of any issues or queries, or if they want to order more!
Ideally, labels should not be scratchy and uncomfortable to the wearer, so they don’t cut them out. That is why high-end label manufacturers carry personalized woven labels, such as woven damask labels. The damask labels are soft to the touch and don’t scratch the skin. They are soft enough for baby clothes, and still strong enough to withstand repeated washings.
Before you begin to sell, review all FTC (federal trade commission) requirements, so that there are no unpleasant surprises later.
Get creative! The designers can create woven labels using die cut shapes for V-neck tees. This adds additional flair to your collection, and makes your brand stand out. Make sure to follow these tips to radiate the personality of your brand seamlessly.
