Get The Low Down On Everything You Need To Know About Labels Printed Or Woven



Printed Labels are so easy to run, we chrge a one off fee for the screen set up, this is charged to set up every size needed to go onto one screen. We print these in one colour, we normally suggest a tonal grey so it will work well throughout all garment colours you choose. Thes can only be done in one colour, if you would like different colours in each garments there would be a colour change fee. 

 Printed  labels work by printing onto a special paper and then pressed into any garment. These work perfectly on any garment or fabric content, we recommend this process for cost wise and the fact that you can barely see the print on the back of the garment. 

Great for low minimum runs, with only minimums of 20 units combined, extras can be printed and stored on site. 


Our second choice in the printing catagorie, Screenprinted directly into the garment. These come with minimum runs of 200 units per size and colour. 

We dont recommend this style as you will see the print on the reverse of t-shirts, although it is an available options.

Woven Labels

Woven labels are produced on a loom. Your logo/wording is woven into the piece of material. A printed label is different because your logo/wording is printed on top of the material rather than being woven into the material.


Our favourite option, the most common type of woven labels are damask woven labels. 

Damask labels are made up of polyester yarns, which come in hundreds of colours. These Labels  can weave fine details with a maximum of 12 colours for damask woven labels. The more colours you choose the more expensive these could be.  

Damask High Definition Labels

Typically considered high end and used for intricate details, such as signatures or small text. Damask is a thinner thread then other woven fabric labels, often referred to as Denier Density.

Damask woven labels are cut with a heat knife or sonic laser, which adheres the threads together to prevent fraying.

Digicolor it is possible to weave any motif with the best image quality and colour brightness. It is used for extraordinary items such as high resolution labels, pillow cases and bags.

Rubber labels, which are a high quality and robust label type, are widely used in products such as coats, shoes, bags. They have a soft and smooth structure and are suitable for all weather conditions.




Satin woven labels are soft, shiny, and has a vintage look. 

Satin polyester threads weave the background, while regular damask polyester threads are used to weave the text and design on your label. 

Satin labels don’t weave small details and lettering as well as damask labels. For satin woven labels, the only colours available for the background is white. The threads used for the logo and lettering of the satin woven labels are the same as the damask woven threads. There is a maximum of 8 colours for woven labels.
