Functions and Benefits
It may seem like a small detail, but a label can actually affect a customer’s decision to buy a shirt or even their enjoyment of the garment after the fact. Labels are essentially a company’s way of communicating with the customer specifically about the product, although they can also add an aesthetic touch and enhance the overall quality of a t-shirt. Labels can communicate all kinds of information, and the best part is you’re able to choose what kind of labels you want to use to communicate certain information to your customers. Let’s have a look at some of your options:
Brand clothing labels boast the brand name or logo of a company, which can not only help raise brand awareness but also add to the value of the t-shirt. For example, two different brands can sell the exact same white t-shirt but if one adds a brand label somewhere on the external side of the shirt it increases brand awareness as other people are able to see the brand name visibly displayed on the label, and thus increase the perceived quality of the t-shirt even though it’s the exact same shirt.
Care clothing labels have a more functional purpose than brand labels. They inform the customer how to take care of the shirt with instructions on how to wash, dry, bleach, and iron it. Informing your customers on how to properly care for your products, while actually being required by law in most countries, will also cause your customers to get much more use and enjoyment out of the garment, and therefore be more likely to buy from your brand again in the future.
Size clothing labels simply communicate the garment’s size. These are a functional label that serve to help customers find the right t-shirt for their body measurements and although they may not be required by law in all countries they are very important to include on each garment and can usually be found on the inside of the garment.
Composition labels communicate the precise makeup of the shirt, giving the amount of each fabric or material used as a percentage. These labels are typically required by law in most countries and are a factor in determining the proper care instructions of the garment and sometimes justify the cost of an item. Composition labels are also important to include because some customers may have special requirements for the type of fabric they can wear on their body and need to know what fibers the garment is made up of.
You are probably most familiar with the standard woven or printed label on the inside collar of a t-shirt, but this is far from the only option. That is usually a good placement for care, composition or size labels, but if you have a brand logo label you may want to display it more prominently. Brand labels are often placed on the back of the outside of the shirt or even on the side of the sleeve or the hem.
Most of the time, labels on the inside of a t-shirt communicate information like size and fabric composition while outer labels are used for branding or just to add an extra touch of style. A custom label on the outside of a t-shirt not only promotes your brand but can add to the design and give your shirts a more professional feel.
The cut and fold of your labels will affect where you want to place them and what information they should have on them.
The most common is the Center Fold Label, a woven label usually attached into the inside of the collar. These tend to have the brand or logo on one side and care and composition information on the back.
An End Fold Label has the sides tucked in to give it a “finished”. These can be placed internally or externally on the garment and should be used either for branding or to communicate small pieces of information as they aren’t very large.
A Straight Cut Label has no folds at all, allowing all sides and corners to be sewn on flat. These are typically placed on the outside of the shirt to give the appearance of a stylish patch and are usually reserved for logos as they’re neat and decorative.
A Manhattan Fold Label is similar to a Center Fold Label except there’s an additional fold at the top to give it a more finished and reinforced look.
A Mitre Fold Label is similar to an End Fold Label, however, the tag hangs down a bit farther instead of going straight across. Again, this type of label is typically used for branding purposes only as it’s small.
A Loop Fold Label can usually be found on the inside of the shirt either on the right or left-hand seam but closer to the hem. These types of labels can be quite large and since they’re more out of sight than labels placed in the collar of the shirt they usually have the care and composition information on them.
