How do you put woven labels on clothes?

Posted by Sean Label on

Attaching woven labels to clothes involves a few different methods, and the choice depends on the type of label and the fabric of the garment. Here are three common methods for attaching woven labels to clothes:

  1. Sewing:

    • Materials Needed: Woven labels, a sewing machine or needle and thread, pins.
    • Process:
      • Position the woven label on the garment and secure it in place with pins to ensure proper alignment.
      • Use a sewing machine or hand-sew around the edges of the label. For a professional finish, match the thread color to the label or garment.
      • If using a sewing machine, set it to a zigzag or satin stitch for woven labels without fraying edges.
  2. Heat Transfer:

    • Materials Needed: Woven labels with a heat-seal backing, an iron or heat press, a thin pressing cloth (optional).
    • Process:
      • Place the woven label on the desired location on the garment with the heat-seal side down.
      • Cover the label with a thin pressing cloth to protect it from direct heat.
      • Apply heat using an iron or a heat press according to the label's instructions. Usually, this involves pressing down for a specified time with medium to high heat.
  3. Adhesive Backing:

    • Materials Needed: Woven labels with adhesive backing, garment, rubbing alcohol (optional).
    • Process:
      • Clean the garment area where the label will be attached with rubbing alcohol to ensure a clean surface.
      • Peel off the protective backing from the label, exposing the adhesive.
      • Carefully place the label on the garment, applying even pressure to ensure a secure bond.


  • Follow the specific instructions provided by the manufacturer of the woven labels.
  • Test a small, inconspicuous area of the garment before attaching the label to ensure compatibility.
  • Consider the care instructions of the garment when choosing the attachment method to ensure it withstands washing and wear.

Choose the method that best suits your preferences, the type of garment, and the label design to achieve a secure and professional attachment.
