Many people forget to factor the cost of labels into the cost of manufacturing garments for their website or store, but custom clothing labels can rack up quite a bill once you consider the name label, the care label and the hangtag. If you want to get creative, your labels get still more expensive.
Getting creative with your labels doesn’t mean you have to break your bank, however. Here are some tips to get more out of your labels and save money in the process:
- Save Space: If you opt to go with smaller labels, you are also opting to go with a smaller price tag. This is true to a point, as very small labels begin to get more expensive since they are more difficult to manufacture. You need to weigh the costs and benefits before selecting a size, as choosing a label that is too small may make your label difficult to read.
- Strive for Simplicity: Simple, custom sewing labels, like woven labels that only use one or two colors, are cheaper than elaborate, full color labels. If you choose fewer colors but attach the label with color thread or use colored ribbon around the edges, you can make a somewhat simple label look beautiful and elegant.
- Think Thin: Thin hang tags are less expensive than thicker tags, and since these are likely to be torn off and discarded not long after purchase, we recommend using a creative design and a thinner paper to print it on.
