How to Create Custom Clothing Labels?
Published March 8th, 2019 in Labels
Whether you’re handy with a sewing machine or you love to knit, you might be interested in selling your creations. As such, you might be looking into clothing labels – just to give yourself that professional touch. If you are wondering how you can make custom clothing labels, you’ve come to the right place! In the list below, we’ve outlined the sorts of information that you should include.
- Brand Name
If you have named your clothing line, then the brand should appear front and centre. After all, you want people to always remember where they purchased that gorgeous garment. If you don’t have a brand name, some people just use their own names.
- Size (if applicable)
The size of the garment in question should also be displayed prominently so that potential buyers will know whether it will fit them or not. The size could be in numeral form or it could be in small, medium and large. It’s also worth noting if one-size-fits-all.
Often found on the back of the label, the materials used in its manufacture are actually quite important. This is because some people may have allergies to some of the fabrics used. By making this information easily accessible, you can avoid a reaction.
- Country of Origin
Another piece of information found on custom clothing labels is the country where it was made. If you are making your own garments and selling them at local markets, this may not be that important – though it does add a personal touch, and is ideal if you ever decide to sell your product online.
- Washing Instructions
It’s important that people know how to properly wash the garment so that they don’t accidentally ruin it. You should say whether it should be washed by hand or is okay to put in the washing machine. You should also say whether bleach is okay to use.
If there is concern that someone will use an unsuitable washing procedure (such as dry cleaning, which is not suitable for all fabrics) or if there is something else that the buyer needs to be aware of (such as flammability), this needs to be outlined.
If you’re trying to put together some custom clothing lables, we hope that the above list has given you an idea of what information should be included. The final thing that you need to do is enlist the help of a professional and reputable label printer to ensure that they come out exactly how you imagined. At Mpressive Labels, we can create printed, woven, swing tickets and even stickers.
