Custom Sew-On Labels 101

Posted on

Everybody that purchases sewing labels does so for a unique purpose, but there are many different questions that everyone can have. Getting the most out of your sewing labels is important because you want to make sure that your custom sew-on labels look good once they’ve been sewn on. Here are some of the basics so that you have the information you need to be sure that your labels look great.

How to Begin Your Design

Often, clothing tags are inside of the clothes, and will never be seen by anyone except the person putting it on. However, there are some situations in which a fancy label is visible, such as on mittens and hats, and especially scarves. If you need to design your custom sew-in tags to go on the inside of a garment, then you don’t need to worry as much about the label matching the garment. It might even be fun to experiment with different colors and pictures! If you need a label that will be seen by everybody, then you will want to make it compliment the garment—or else make it look more neutral against a variety of materials.

Our custom sew-on labels are very versatile and can be applied to anything from a hand-knitted sweater to a delicate sheer dress.

Thread Choice

Your custom sew-on labels need to have the proper thread in order to look their best. It can be difficult to know where to begin, especially if you don’t have as much experience with sewing. Different materials have different needs. For instance, you care for lingerie differently than you would a pair of jeans. Consider the materials that you are working with and what kind of thread you should use. For more information, take a look at this helpful guide on choosing the best kind of thread for your labels.

How to Apply Sew-On Labels

Whether you are using your custom sew-in labels for your business or for personal use, you will need to be able to attach them properly in order to get the most out of them. Even if you are an accomplished seamstress, it would pay off to brush up on the techniques that make these labels look the best. There are different ways that you can sew these labels into your clothing. Many people just stitch the top of the label, but others might prefer to place a stitch at each corner or even to stitch the entire perimeter. Take a look at some of the different ways that people like to apply their labels, and for helpful tips on how to do it yourself.

Designing and sewing in your custom labels doesn’t have to be a daunting task, it might even be fun! For more information on the different kinds of tags available, and to start creating your own, head over to our product page.
