Easy Ways to Apply Clothing Labels

What is the easiest way to put labels on clothing?

Even with all the advances in technology, there are still some chores that rely on personal care and attention.  One of those overlooked but very important tasks, is marking clothes and other belongings with a personalized label or tag, so that if they get mislaid, they can be returned to the owner.  This could be for a variety of reasons:

  • Clothing and linens that belong to a loved one in a nursing home or group home with communal laundry
  • Kids that are attending summer camp
  • Young children attending day care
  • Kids in school who need to keep track of clothes and valuable sports equipment
  • Rental companies or clubs, where an outside facility is used for laundry
  • College students who need to keep track of new personal items

For those people who prefer a traditional way of labeling clothing, an attractive and durable personalized fabric label is often a first choice.  A personalized iron on label is also easy to apply, if one has an iron at home!

Easy options for labeling clothes

  1.  The Snappy Tag System is a new option for putting a personalized tag onto clothing.  The system consists of personalized tags which are etched with the name, together with a Snappy Tag applicator. These clothing tags can be snapped on in just seconds, stay on in the wash, and are removable. The nature of this system also means that it is completely portable and therefore gives people the option of labeling clothes on site.

2.   Personalized Stick On Clothing Labels are another super-easy labeling option.  These labels are printed with a name (and number if needed) and stick to the satin care labels which are often found on the inside seam of an item of clothing.  The special adhesive on these particular labels is designed to adhere to polyester yarns.  These can be peeled off the backing sheet and stuck on – simple as that!

Why Choose Woven Labels?

Millions of people around the world enjoy the almost limitless opportunities in creating handmade items. From young to old, from school craft projects, to complex woven creations, there is a a charm about a unique item made from scratch, that is hard to match.

Fabric labels, which are embroidered with text, are ideal for attaching to pieces made from soft materials.  These can include the name of the creator, contact details, or simply a special sentiment, such as “Made with Love”. Some items where a soft woven label might be appropriate are:

  • Knitted items, such as scarves, shawls, baby clothing, etc.
  • Crocheted items, such as mats, yarmulkes, clothing, etc.
  • Felt items, such as bags and totes, accessories, etc.
  • Handmade clothing, such as dresses, aprons, etc.

Creating a Custom Fabric Label

There are a few things to take into consideration before buying a personalized label.

  • What size label would suit your products?
  • What color combinations would suit your material or business?
  • Would a bold font or a pretty script font work best for you?
  • Would an icon, such as knitting needles or a teddy bear, be appropriate?
  • Do you need contact information on your label?

Working with an experienced label company is very helpful as they will have valuable advice based on years of custom orders. Make sure special handmade items are recognized and cherished well into the future.

Best Clothing Labels for Hats and Mittens

Which personalized labels are best for winter clothing?

Best clothing labels for winter hats, mittens and scarves

 

With winter weather hitting many areas of the country, knitted and fleece hats, gloves and scarves are being unearthed from trunks and the backs of cupboards.  These types of items tend to be the ones that get mislaid most during the course of the winter.  Constantly being put on and taken off, there is ample opportunity to lose them!

Winter hats, gloves and scarves are especially hard to keep track of at school and daycare.  The addition of a personalized clothing label will not only help the young owner find their item, and avoid the anxiety of mix-ups, but is very helpful for the staff who need to return items found in the Lost and Found box.

Personalized Fabric labels

One of the simplest labels to use for identification, is a personalized fabric sewing label.  These tend to be  woven from polyester yarns – durable, colorfast, and stretch-proof – and usually have a single color background and single color for text.  A strong color contrast is best for identification labels.

Sew on labels or iron on labels?

For loosely knitted items, a sew on label works best.  These can be stitched down in each corner in just minutes, and can easily be removed if items are to be passed on to siblings or donated to other families. For items made of fleece, a tagless iron on label will work as an alternative to a sew on label.

STICK ON CLOTHING LABELS

For knitted or fleece items with a satin “care” label (often found on an inside seam), an easy-to-apply stick on clothing label is a wonderful solution.  Designed to stick to polyester yarns, these small labels will  safely go through washing and drying cycles.

With so many personalized label options available, there will always be just the right type of label for the garment.
