If you own a clothing line and sell clothes you design, you must know how much every little detail matters to the customers and what role it plays in enhancing the quality of your product. One such small detail is your brand’s label; that might seem like a minor detail of your product but, in reality, is the defining feature of your merchandise. When you set out to find a label company and go about comparing pricing and timing, keep in mind to make sure you are comparing the same quality of labels because there are a lot of differences.
If you buy a dress with a sloppy label, you will not trust their brand for quality and credibility. Hence, for every clothing brand, it is important to invest in label designs and label fabric to ensure your brand labels are high quality and showcase your brand values appropriately. Moreover, these labels are easily customizable, making it easier for customers to identify your product anywhere.
However, the problem here is that there are many different types of labels for a brand to choose from – while woven labels are the most common and preferred choice for everyone, all woven labels are not the same or equal. Woven labels are made of various thread qualities, and you need to know enough about them to ensure you choose the right quality for your brand’s label.
So today, let’s talk in detail about the different threads that are used in woven labels.
Woven labels, as their name suggests, are label tags that are made by weaving on a loam by fixing warp yarns. Then the woven label machine prints graphics, letters, numbers, and logos on the arm with a weft. There are many different types of woven labels considering the thread used in their making, such as:
● Damask Woven Labels
Damask woven labels are the most common woven labels made using polyester yarns in various colors. Damask is woven in fine detail and feels extremely soft on the skin. Sometimes damask labels contain 100% polyester – meaning that the quantity of thread is so much that everything is very obvious on the labels. The best thing about damask labels is that they are easily customizable and even small details appear clear and easy to read.
Damask labels come in 2 types: 100 denier damask and 50 denier damask. Denier is basically the thread’s size; hence, damask comes in 2 thread sizes.
1. 100 Denier Damask
100 denier damask feels soft and is woven with finer detail. It is the perfect thread type for high-quality luxury brands as it is not only soft but also sturdy – and feels amazing.
2. 50 Denier Damask
50 denier damask is about half the size of 100 denier damasks and is also very high quality. It is perfect for luxury brands for kids that allow small lettering and details. Fifty denier high-density woven labels are very soft and luxurious and display the highest density of weave available.
Taffeta is another material used for making woven levels. Unlike damask and satin, it is the most economical alternative for making woven labels and hence is also not as high quality and sturdy as the other two. It is perfect for use on the sides of bags, scarves, and hats. Their downside is that they are not suitable for use on clothes because due ot their thick material, they can feel scratchy.
Satin is soft and shiny and great for a vintage look. If you want shiny and expensive labels, you can go for this, but don’t forget that satin does not weave small lettering or minor details. Satin is priced the same as a damask, so it can be a little difficult to choose between the two. But if you are someone who prefers the feel over the quality or sturdiness, then you can go for it. Moreover, the satin labels have to limit backgoroudn color options, so they might not be the perfect choice for you if you want lots of colors and detailing.
Cotton is very commonly used for making labels as it is considered a durable choice. However, cotton labels are both printed and woven, so people often get confused about them. Cotton material is loosely woven; hence ornate designs and small letters might not work on this material – which is why cotton printed labels are more popular.
Brand labels are that one minor detail on the product that changes how one views your brand. Whether you agree or not, customers are very cautious about every little detail on their product, and some might even notice the label. So if you want to make sure your label stands out, you need to choose the best material for it.
