Personalised Sewing Labels
Creating your own clothes can be so rewarding, especially when you look at your completed sewing project and it's exactly as you envisioned it would be. Adding personalised sewing labels is a great way to make your mark on your completed garment, similar to the way in which artists would sign the bottom corner of their paintings.
Custom woven sewing labels are printed using eco-friendly inks, which penetrate deep into the fibres of the satin material, bonding them. This infusion technique results in a long-lasting print which will not scratch off or peel away, whilst also offering amazing colour reproduction and fine detailing.
Available in packs of 20, 40, 100 or 200 and in 12 different sizes, you can choose between a folded or flat label style. The flat, sew on labels are heat-sealed around the edges to ensure no fraying occurs and are available in sizes from as small as 35 mm x 15 mm to as big as 90 x 70 mm. The folded, sew in labels have a closed edge and a cut edge. The cut edge is so that you can sew in your label to your garment. These folded clothing labels can be made as small as 25 mm x 25 mm to 50 mm x 50 mm.
There are a few things to bear in mind when creating personalised sewing labels, personalised by you and hand-printed by us in the UK. A 10mm seam allowance each cut edge is included on top of each label size. We advise using a 10pt or higher font size, not in a lightweight or fine version of a font, instead favouring standard or heavy styles. Take a look at some of the examples below regarding how to best layout your design for your custom woven sewing labels. Please note that folded labels are not sent pre-folded.
Due to the production process that we use, there is the possibility of some seconds or borderline cases of labels. When this occurs we would automatically include these with your order (free of charge) in the hope that you might be able to make use of them. We feel that this is a much better solution than sending them straight to landfill. If you notice these cases within your order, it's worth checking as it's likely that they have been sent as extras rather than as part of your order. We don't have any minimum order requirements and with great wholesale discounts you can order as many or as few as you would like.
Wash 40°c. Iron at 30°C maximum. Low heat tumble dry. Exceeding these settings can result in colour bleed.
Frequently asked questions:
What information is good for the labels?Your woven sewing labels in smaller sizes are great for putting your logo on brand name onto to create some real brand recognition. Putting your mark against your work is a great way to take pride in what you do, and spread the word.
What else would I put on the labels?If you opt for smaller personalised sewing labels then you won't be able to get much more than a name and/or logo on there, but the larger labels can be used to add things like your website address and even care instructions for the fabrics that you've used in your project.
Where would I find the icons for the care instructions?To make things as easy as possible for you, in our design interface, you can add icons to sewing labels personalised by you from our image library. In the library, there is a tab called washing instructions, and you'll find a number of the common care instruction icons in there.
