Selecting the Right Labels for ClothingLucinda Winston
There is a wide variety of custom clothing labels to choose from and attach to your finished garments. Deciding which ones are the most appropriate for the apparel you are selling to your customers is important.
Most people rely upon the label to find out use and care information, find out what materials were used in the garment, and verify it is the correct size. In addition to these details, how the label feels when the garment worn is equally important. The last thing you want is an elegant gown with a scratchy, uncomfortable label.
Satin labels are softer than woven labels and tend to be used on higher-end garments. On the plus side, satin is ideal for your customers who are easily irritated by woven labels, since they are not scratchy. The only drawback is they do tend to slowly fade over time.
Woven labels are meant to be durable and long lasting. However, they can irritate the skin on some people and feel scratchy, depending on the type of garment and placement of the label. An added bonus is woven labels tend to cost less than satin. They are also available in a wide range of colors with customizable stitched lettering options.
Iron On Labels
Many clothing designers are using iron on labels and lettering in place of traditional satin and woven labels. While they are ideal for certain types of clothing, like t-shirts, they are not the best solution for higher end apparel. Further, iron on labels will come off over time. Not to mention, you might require special processes to attach the labels.
