A Guide to Label Folds: Part IILucinda Winston
The type of label fold you want to use is one of the most important decisions you must make when designing your custom clothing label, as the fold will affect the look and feel of the garment. For instance, straight cut labels can be made to look subtler if you want to minimize the effect of a name label, while other folds are bolder and can be incorporated into the design of a garment.
We listed several clothing label folds in our last blog. Here are a few more options for you to consider.
- Mitre Fold: This fold is achieved when a longer, thin label is attached by folding the two ends under at 45 degree angles and sewing only the ends to the garment. The rest of the label hangs down in a more elegant, fun manner. This label looks nice on children’s clothing, elegant garments, and garments made with delicate fabric.
- End Fold: To achieve this fold, tuck the left and right end of the label under and attach those to the garment. This gives the label a more finished look, and can help decrease skin irritation since customers won’t be exposed to the threads or ends of the label that can irritate skin.
- Die Cut: These labels are cut into a specific shape that is relevant to your company, such as a moon or a circle, and are attached like a straight cut label. These are particularly fun for children’s clothing or other whimsical garments.
