We have all experienced an uncomfortable clothing tag in our lives at one time or another. Was it the cut or maybe the material that made it itchy or rub against our skin in such a way? This is definitely something to think about when planning your own company or group’s custom clothing labels. On top of that, the design element is incredibly important if you want to stand out in a good way from the rest of the crowd.
Should I use printed or woven labels?
Printed labels have the logo or writing printed on them with just one or two colors. If your logo or writing is simple or is being used for mainly informative purposes (such as a small logo or washing instructions), then a printed label should suffice. A key distinction to keep in mind with printed labels is the satin sheen of them.
If you are in need of a fancier tag with multiple colors, you will probably more satisfied with a woven label choice. With a choice of up to eight colors in the logo or writing, this is a main choice for clothing companies to showcase their brand in a high quality, vibrant way.
What type of cut is best?
Custom labels can be cut in a specific way depending on your likes, dislikes, and the type or style of clothing the label will be attached to. A centerfold is self-explanatory—the label is folded or creased in half with the loose ends being sewn into the seam of the clothing article. This is a good choice for either the top of the garment or even a side tag with instructions.
Another common option is the straight cut. This is again what it sounds like—with no parts of the label folded or creased. A straight cut label can be placed anywhere on the garment and doesn’t necessarily need to be sewn on all sides. It can hang outward if needed, as well. This makes it a very flexible choice.
An end fold is a popular option for garments that need to have a sort of built in place that can be hooked, like a sweater or jacket. With no sharp corners, the end fold cut also lessens any chance of being irritating.
Can there be too much color?
Logo and design choice for your clothing custom labels is really up to you, but there are some things to keep in mind. Depending on the material of your label, you might have a limited choice of color. With that in mind, many places have specific shades of color that might not transfer well to a label with a white background. Some companies choose to make a black and white version of their logo to account for any color loss.
There are plenty of things to keep in mind when it comes to custom labels and plenty of decisions to make regarding your final product. No matter what you choose, your label is sure to have excellent quality.
