Logos on Labels

Posted on

If you are ordering labels from It’s Mine Labels for your small business and you are considering including your logo on the label, there are a few things you should think about before making your decision.

First, look at your logo objectively and determine how simple it is. Minimalist, simple logos can work well on labels, but if your logo is slightly more involved or has small components to it, it will most likely not translate well when it is printed so small. For example, a single daisy may do well, but a small decorated Christmas tree would look like a complicated blob.

Next, does your logo have delicate lines or details? If it does, the fine details may not translate well in thread or ink on a small label.

You only want to include your logo if it will be clear and recognizable. If it looks the least bit wonky on your label, a majority of customers will remember how weird your logo looked instead of your actual company brand.

  • If you are labeling something with a lid, attach the label on the underside of the lid so that it is not visible when the lid is on and can be easily hid when your child removes it.
  • Order clothing labels in muted, neutral colors so that the extra labels don’t necessarily draw attention.
  • More expensive items like iPods can avoid a label if your child will agree to have their name saved as the background on the lock screen. This way, if their iPod gets mixed up with a friend’s they need only to click the on button and they will see whom it belongs to.
  • Use ink transfers to keep from adding extra thread or bulk and causing clothes to bulge.
