Do I Really Need Custom Shirt Labels?

The popular trend for woven hem tags and labels worn on the sleeve, collar and bottom of the shirt enables designers to be more creative with their work by not having to somehow incorporate their name into every design.

Attaching custom t-shirt labels or clothing tags with your name or logo to your products is a solid solution that has a variety of positive effects. To start with, they add professionalism to your designs and what it is maybe more important, they put your name in front of your customers which in the long term will increase your brand awareness.


What do I Need on my Labels?

Your labels can include everything from your name, brand, address or website. But they can also be as simple as symbol, logo or one word that represents your company.

Think of the NIKE brand. They don’t need anything but the ‘swoosh’ and you know it’s NIKE. The same can be true for any up and coming brand. Think simple, think powerful, and be as creative as you want, what you put on your labels is up to you.

There are many places in a shirt or hoodie where you can place a hem label :

  • Neck.
  • Bottom Hem of the t-Shirt
  • Sleeve
  • Pocket
  • On the outer side seam of the shirt (also called flag labels)
  • On the inner side seam of the shirt (also called flag labels)

Keep in mind, the location you want to place your label will probably define the style of labels you’ll need to create. For example, if you’re planning to sew them in a visible place such as the front or in the sleeves and you want something very distinct you may lean towards Soft Rubber PVC Labels or Woven Damask Labels.

Should I Custom Label my T-Shirts?

The easy answer to this question is absolutely

For many reasons it is a great idea to customize your t-shirts with your own branding and label design.

First off, having a t-shirt business is a really competitive business to be in.

With competition that tough it is really important to find a way to stand out among all the other designers out there.
If you walk in to almost every retailer that sells specialty t-shirts you will find that they all have a custom label and/or a hem tag.
This is one of those things a good retailer will look for before they purchase a new line for their store.

Keep this little fact in mind if you are wanting to sell your t-shirts to specialty retailers or even a local surf shop or boutique.

The in’Thing: Hem Tags for Your Clothing

Most well-known streetwear companies have both a neck label and a hem tag on each t-shirt.
Typically the woven label covers most of the information, with the hem tag showing just your logo.

Any ‘up and coming’ new line of products, should really bring home their concept with custom branding and custom labeling. The cost is nominal when it comes to all of the added benefits custom branding provides.

Adding your tag to your blank shirts can be as simple as removing the manufacturer label, and sewing yours in the same place.
