Time and time again, woven and printed labels have always taken precedence over any other type of labels for garments. Heat seal or adhesive labels are rarely considered for clothing labels. You can, however, build a unique brand personality by opting for adhesive labels for your products and lend your creative twist to it. If you are a startup with plans to launch your apparel creations, these are some of the features about heat seal labels you should keep in mind before you get started.
Why Heat Seal Labels?
Heat seal labels are basically pressure-sensitive labels that are placed on the product using heat. These labels can be customized as woven or printed labels depending on business needs. These labels can be made of straight cut or pre-cut rolls with either a die cut processor, electromagnetic machines or any label cutters to provide the custom shapes. It’s as simple as placing the labels on the fabric, covering it with a wax paper and pressing the iron to ensure the label stays put. They are often quite similar to ‘peel and stick’ labels or stickers and are placed on the outside of items such as bottles, furniture, industrial products, or promotional items. You can, however, use it as labels for clothing provided you work with a high-performance clothing label maker. They will ensure you get good quality adhesion that doesn’t affect the quality of the product.
So when you consider your custom label designer, ask them about the quality of heat seal film they use for adhesion. These labels are usually placed on cotton labels with the aid of a heat sealer or ironing at high heat for about 40 seconds. The intensity of heat is determined by the material of the label fabric and can be applied even on woven labels. However, the label makers might charge you additionally if you customize heat seal feature on an already printed or woven label.
How heat seal labels can be used as identifiers?
Heat seal labels can also be used to identify a specific person in the workplace. For instance, people who wear the uniform outfit at their workplace can be easily identified if they have a logo unique to their identity. A lot of companies have successfully used heat seal labels to identify their employees and it is already acknowledged to foster team spirit amongst the coworkers. Same goes for school/college students and event management volunteers.
