This guide will cover everything you need to know regarding branding and clothing labels.

This is the place to go if you’re looking for custom branding labels, clothing labels or design them.

What is a brand label?

A brand label is usually a small piece of fabric that displays your company’s details. It can be found most often in clothing labels, but it can also be used for other products. You may need more detail, such as a logo, some wording, or website details.

Labels can be used to express a unique identity or make a product stand out from the rest. Companies can use brand labels to communicate their brand identity. Your production costs will rise if your design is more complex.

You will also be able to encourage consumers to recognize your brand in the future.

GARMENTS It is important to attach a type of label for garments (also called clothing labels). This allows people to identify the size and care instructions. But clothing labels do not have to be boring. You can use your brand identity to make your clothing labels interesting and appealing.

Different types of labels

Understanding the differences between labels is crucial to choose the right one for you. When choosing a label type, the most important thing is to consider how simple your design is. Some label types will not work if your design is too detailed. These are the main differences between label types:


Because of the fine, thin thread, woven labels are most commonly used to label clothing and garments. This allows for more detail in the words and patterns. Woven labels must be dense and made from high-quality yarn. Because of their low cost, they are extremely popular! The most popular type of woven label is the damask woven label.


Most commonly, printed labels are attached to clothing’s insides. These labels are usually printed with care instructions and the garment size. Commonly, printed labels are used for care labels.


The least friction between the material’s skin and heat press labels makes them the best choice for sportswear. Heat press labels can rub off on skin for a prolonged period.


Hang tags aren’t attached to the garment or product directly. Instead, they hang from a string. They contain information like price, care instructions, and manufacturer. Hang tags are typically larger than labels attached to products, so they can include more detail. Hangtags will be the first thing a customer sees when they are considering purchasing your product.

What are the advantages and disadvantages?


Our labels are durable and long-lasting. Your labels will last a lifetime and the thread color will not fade.

Textured products: Sometimes you have a vision of what you want your product to look like but don’t want any changes to the color or wording. Labels are great because they allow you to preserve your original design while adding texture to create a unique look that is not possible with other products.

Professional Appearance, High-End: Labels can be used to give your products a professional appearance. They are easy to use and very cost-effective. Your products will appear high-end and increase in value by attaching labels.


You can easily access the interior of garments. They are invisible to the owner and are intended to remain in the garment for the benefit of the customer.

The most cost-effective label

May not cause comfort: Printed labels are usually attached to the inside of clothing. However, this has the disadvantage that they must be small to not cause discomfort for the person wearing them. It is a good idea if you want to include a lot of information, to also add a hangtag.


It can’t be felt in garments: Heat press labels are great clothing (especially for sportswear).

Minimum friction: Between the material and skin. This makes them the most comfortable clothing label.

Colors may fade over time: because they are in direct contact with the skin, colors tend to fade over time. Sometimes the label can even fade completely due to sweat or heavy use.


Hangtags can provide more detail: They are usually larger than other labels which allows them to contain much more information.

Adding additional information: If you have trouble fitting everything on another label type, it is a good idea to add a hang tag to your product. This will ensure that your customer has all the information they require.

Not attached directly to the product. is often thrown away almost immediately after purchasing.

Not long-term: If you want to add important information to your label, you’ll need another type of label that can be attached to your product.

Use and attach labels

Weaved labels are used by high-end fashion brands as they look more professional and unique than other types of clothing labels. They can be used on many items as well as garments. Your labels are meant to be unique and allow you to express yourself. There are many ways to use them! We have compiled a list of some of our favorite ideas to help you get started.

Clothing Items: This may seem obvious if your labels are used for uniforms. But, why not look through your closet and see if there are any clothes that you don’t like? You don’t have to throw them away, but attach labels to them. They will look brand new! This is a great way for you to find clothes that are exactly what you want!


These folds are common in printed and woven labels.

Flat label: These labels are flat and can be placed on products to create a clean edge. These labels are often used to place size tags on garments or brand labels on the inside collar.

Enfold labels: These are similar to flat labels but have an additional 7mm seam allowance on both edges. This creates a neat finish that allows the label to stand out more.

Centerfold labels: Both the top and bottom are sealed, and then the label is folded across the middle. This allows you to add additional information such as care instructions or laundry symbols, the country of manufacture, and any types of materials.

Hem tags (book fold labels) These are similar to centerfolds, but the seam allowance is folded inward. These labels are often placed on sleeves. Because they are easy to attach to pre-made garments, book fold labels are extremely popular. If you want, your logo can be seen on both sides of the label. You also have the option to put a different logo on each. This is great for advertising and getting more people to notice your brand.

The backing can only be used for woven labels and not printed labels. Iron on woven labels as well as sewn labels is the same product. The only difference is which backing they use. The backing determines the material that the label can attach to. These are the different backing options we offer:

Sew-in (no backing) These labels are the oldest form of woven labels. However, you will need to have basic sewing skills to sew them onto fabric. You can always ask your local sewing shop for help if you’re not confident in sewing.

Heat press (iron-on): These are easy to do as they only require a standard iron which you should already have! If you are new to attaching labels with heat press backing, it might be difficult to get the label attached correctly. We recommend that you test the label several times with scrap material. This will allow you to get used to the process.

Adhesive backing: This backing acts as a sticker and can be attached by simply peeling off and sticking. Because it sticks to paper very well, you will also see it on paper bags. This backing is easiest to attach and is great for those who aren’t familiar with a heat press or sew-in backing.
