Labels, labels all around, don’t know which one to choose? If you are planning to launch your own clothing line and this is the question that comes to your mind, you are in the right place. Our clients often ask us which type of label will ideally match their brand objectives. We have tried to ease their confusion by underlining the features of all three types of clothing labels to help you choose the best one for your business.
Woven labels are created by sewing high-quality thread in a loom providing high durability of the label content. Four types of woven labels mostly preferred by businesses from the clothing industry are high-definition, damask, taffeta, and satin.
Luxury clothing brands choose high-definition woven labels because these are woven in imperial fabrics such as silk, linen, and polyester lending a sophisticated appearance to the label.
Damask labels, on the other hand, are more commonly used by most of the big brands as these are woven in a very thin thread accentuating the intricate details of the label content.
Satin labels are created with polyester threads and are ideal for trendy outfits, vintage products or kid’s wear. The label content is strategically placed on a satin fabric giving it a glossy and shiny look.
Taffeta woven labels are the most popular choice because of the affordability factor. These are usually polyester based and provide a sleek touch with fine detailing.
Printed labels are created with high-quality ink and are available in a variety of card stocks with a matte, semi-gloss or glossy finish. These labels are mostly preferred by brands with a limited budget. One of the USPs of a printed label is its ability to accumulate a lot of content which is often not possible in case of woven labels. Assuring comfort and flexibility, the production time for printed labels is also much lesser than woven labels. However, if you wish your label content to stay put for a longer time, then you should consider woven labels over printed labels. Printed tags can be ideally used for apparel, lifestyle and home accessories.
Heat Seal or adhesive labels
These are pressure sensitive labels that can be customized according to the requirements of a variety of applications. From using it as a badge for uniforms to using it as a standalone brand label, these labels are usually cut out in the custom shape with cutters or electromagnetic machines. These are placed on the fabric with the help of ironing or simply used as ‘peel and stick’ labels. Make sure the label makers assure high-performance adhesion without affecting the quality of the product.
