Most wholesale clothing comes with the manufacturers label inside of the collar. A lot of customers want their garments to look custom, so we can remove the existing label & add a label with your branding inside to give it a custom look. We get asked a lot about woven labels, so we’ve written this guide to answer some of your questions.
DO YOU HAVE A TEMPLATE FOR WOVEN LABELS?
Yes! You can find it here.
DO I NEED THEM?
If you’re looking to add a higher perceived value, extra branding & a professional finish to your products then you may want to consider woven labels.
WHATS THE MINIMUM ORDER?
Minimum order for labels is 500pc
HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
Labels cost between 6p & 25p each depending on quantity. Relabelling costs between 67p & £1 depending on quantity.
CAN YOU REMOVE THE BRANDED LABELS?
When relabelling we unpick the stitching, remove the branded tag & sew the collar back up again with matching thread as standard.
NECK PRINTS OR LABELS?
Often customers are unsure whether to go for neck prints or relabelling with custom labels. This usually comes down to personal preference but we recommend going for custom labels if you’re getting fleece lined items such as hoodies & sweats, as neck prints won’t work on the fleece lining.
DO I NEED TO ORDER A LABEL FOR EACH SIZE?
No, we sew size stubs underneath the label, which is included in the relabelling cost.
WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO INCLUDE ON MY LABEL?
You can see the current labelling rules & regulations on the UKFT website here.
However, we recommend the following:
- Fibre content (required if selling in the UK)
- Care instructions (more info here)
- Your logo
- Your website
ARE THERE LIMITATIONS TO WHAT I CAN RELABEL?
Some garments can’t be unpicked without damaging the stitching. For these we can neatly attach the label onto the collar.
WHAT SIZE SHOULD MY LABELS BE?
The size of your label mainly comes down to personal preference & what suits your design. Our standard template is based on 30mm x 70mm (30 x 35mm when folded).
HOW DETAILED CAN MY DESIGN BE?
Since these are woven there are limitations to how fine your design can be. As a rule of thumb we recommend lines to be no thinner than 1pt / 0.5mm.
WHAT ARTWORK LIMITATIONS ARE THERE?
Besides the above, the following won’t work as a woven label:
- Designs with more than 4 colours
- Complex, detailed designs
- Fine script font
