Here are some tips and advice when thinking through the design of your label.  The more information you can provide us with then the easier we can help you with setting up your label.  We have a COMMENT box on every ordering page for you to write special instructions. 

First of all - choose your Fabric

White Polyester. This is a great material for clear printing, washes well, no fade. No fray on any side. We can print logos in black and white OR choose one colour for all your label from black, red, blue or green print. 
Roll sizes are 15mm, 30mm or 50mm.  Most popular size is 50mm x 30mm, with sewing at the top.  We can print back to back on this fabric eg logo on the front and care instructions on the back.  Easy to machine sew across the top. 

Black Polyester. This is a great material for clear printing in a soft grey/ off white colour only. Washes well, no fade. No fray on any side. Roll sizes are 15mm, 30mm or 50mm.  Most popular size is 50mm x 30mm, with sewing at the top.  We can print back to back on this fabric eg logo on the front and care instructions on the back.  Easy to machine sew across the top. 

White Satin. This is a soft material. Great for a more luxurious feel. Washes well. We can print logos in black and white OR choose one colour for all your label from black, red, blue or green print. Suitable for sewing each side for a brand name, or most often used as a looped label, with a brand on the front, and care instructions on the folded loop. Roll sizes are 15mm or 30mm, 

White Cotton.  100% cotton fabric. Washes well, Full colour available.  Roll sizes 30mm or 50mm.  Needs to be sewn flat  all around, OR looped and sewn at the top to avoid fray after washing. (See photo). 

White Cotton - IRON ONFull colour available.  Roll sizes 30mm or 50mm.  

You can send us the name of a font to use on your label, or we can lay it up for you ourselves in a standard arial.

COMMON QUESTIONS

•    How much information do you want on your care label? Will it include washing instructions as well as details on the garments material composition? Are you going to have your logo on the label? Do you require different sizes to be printed on the label as well? These are typically the key questions you need to answer that provide the information needed for designing your label.  

•    Think about where you are going to sew on the label? Sewing the label at the top is more common, but other options such as side sewing or folding and/or looping the label and then sewing it into the garment are also possible. This decision will influence the way the text is set up on your label. 

Quantities can start with as little as a pack of 20 so there is no reason why you can’t have professional looking care labels for whatever products or clothing you are making and selling.
