5 Types Of Labels Found On Popular Clothing Brands

When it comes to labels on clothing, everyone has their own personal preference. Not all clothing labels are created equal and some are more annoying than others. For this reason, we’ve identified 5 of the most popular types of labels that are found on clothing and their benefits.

Stamped Labels (Tagless Heat Transfers)

These labels are ironed or stamped onto the inside back of a shirt or dress. They are non-obtrusive and won’t itch or scratch. They can show the logo, list the size of the garment, manufacturer name and any particular care instructions that are required for a said garment.

This type of clothing label is super popular and many people like these the best as they don’t irritate their skin, however, they tend to fade with washing/drying which can make them difficult if not to read after a short period of time.

Side Tags and Labels

These tags and labels are sewn into the garment typically on the left side. They are typically lower on the garment falling usually at or near the hip. They are usually sewn right into a seam and are typically on the side because the designer wants to showcase the logo label, alone, at the top. Side tags and labels can either be woven labels or printed fabric labels. Either type will work great.

Again, these give care instructions and size and manufacturer information. They are also great to use if you plan on having the care information available in multiple languages. This type of label will be longer and have it on the side will not interfere with the consumer.

Inside Back Labels (Woven or Printed)

There are actually a few different types of inside back labels. They will either be a woven label or a printed label and can either sewn in or tacked at the corners of the label so they are almost hanging from the clothing. These too will list the pertinent information including manufacturer, size, care instructions etc.

If the label is woven, it will last for a very long time before fading. If the label is printed, it can start to fade with washing and drying.

Non-Sewn in Attached Tags and Labels

These printed or woven labels can be attached with either a safety pin or manufactured with a slit to allow the label to be tied onto a button or with a plastic that has a loop at either end preventing the tag from being removed. This type of label is very common on high-end suits or couture and are intended to be removed prior to wearing.

As above, these have all of the pertinent information on them including manufacturer, size, care instructions and so on. The con to this type of tag is that it may be lost when removed and the wearer will have no idea how to properly care for the garment. Nor will they know the size or manufacturer if they choose to purchase a similar product from the manufacturer again.

There are also a few other methods of attaching clothing labels including the favorite of many jean manufacturers where they have a leather label that is attached to a back pocket or an area of the garment. These are typically a brand that is higher end and many people don’t really appreciate wearing their size on their hip for others to see.

By understanding the options for labels it can help people to focus on what does and doesn’t work for them. The biggest issue is keeping the care information handy for laundering. When removing tags it may be wise to simply place them in an envelope and stuff this into a drawer where it can be referred to until the wearer is accustomed to the particulars.
