Woven labels serve a significant role not only for the clothing designers and sellers, but also for the customers. These labels are the first thing a customer looks for when buying articles of clothing. With so much importance placed on these labels, clothing designers make sure to use the best woven labels for the clothes.
There are some common clothing labels used such as fabric printed labels, damask woven labels, printed labels, tagless heat transfers, etc. Woven labels are the most common ones used by clothing designers to give the luxurious garments a sofisticated feel and look.
Here are some add on options for woven clothing labels that designers can consider from when attaching the labels.
1. Self-Adhesive Backing
Thermo-adhesive and self-adhesive labels are completely woven labels that have a special coating on its back. These clothing labels can be ironed using a heat press re regular household iron. The main purpse of self- adhesive label is to have a quick brand name on the product. In addition to it, self adhesive clothing labels works well on products where the sewing is very difictult: head bands, hats, leather wallets, heavy fleece baby blankets, items that are have been made already. They will work well on item that are not frequently laundered or not washed at all.
2. Merrowed Edged Patch
Woven labels with merroved edge are mainly sewn on the outside of the garment/product. The merroved edges of the label-patch keeps it from unraveling or fraying, and gives the label a pronounced look.
One of the other common one beside the the mrrowed edge is slit edge(laser cut edge).
A Merrow edge is a thicker border sewed over the outer edges of the label.
Once the labels are stitched onto the fabric, Merrow borders are then implemented. This helps to highlight the woven labels that are generally in the form of irregular shapes as well circles, squares, and ovals.
Merrowed edge patches are not just for aesthetics. Its purpose is not just to enhance the perimeter and accents of the design. The thick border helps to keep the patch unruffled as well as protect the design from scuffing and stretching.
3. Iron On Or Heat Seal Backing
Another effective add on option for clothing labels is heat transfer labels. The Heat seal backing is a simple, flatter, thinner border that keeps the peripheral edge sealed on the patch and shields the threads from unravelling.
A lot of customers have this compliant that when they purchase an article of clothing and cannot wait to wear it, the thing that washes away their happiness is when the label scratches and make it uncomfortable to wear it. The answer for this issue is that the clothing designers have the labels embossed by the help of tagless labels.
4. Added Starch
Starch makes it easier to sew clothing labels. It keeps edges neat and flat for sewing.It adds firmness to the labels. It keeps the colors vibrant, resists wrinkles. Clothing designers can bring their own touch to the labels, at the same time, use starch to “seal the deal”.
