Fabric Labels Informations and their shape cutting
Center Fold or Loop Label
Center fold or loop labels are the most common type of label. Loop labels are usually woven or printed on both sides - most often with the logo on one side and care and content on the other. Consider adding 4mm on each end for sew space.
These labels are cut into a shape that reflects the design of your logo and cab be printed or woven. The often have an adhesive backing or have 2 to 3mm of sew space added to the design.
A very useful type of label, the endfold label is commonly used in shirt collars. Three to four millimeters are added to each end of the label and folded under for sewing purposes.
Fuse Cut (Heat Seal)
Fuse cut labels are cut with a hot knife so the edges are sealed and are easily the most versatile type of label available. They are perfect for tacking on the corners or sewing along the edges - all four or just one. Fuse cuts very often have an adhesive back and can be pressed on ironed on. Consider allowing 3mm around your design for sew space.
Often used in the collars of men's shirts, the mitre fold is sometimes referred to as the hook label since men often use the label to hang their shirts on hooks.
Results are the same as the fuse cut (above) but the edges are softer. They can be used with adhesive back, tacked, or sewn. Often used in swim wear, sleepwear, or on other soft clothing.
