Basics of Woven Labels

Basics of Woven Labels:

Woven labels are one of the most widely used around the world as main source of identifications of garments today.

But before you consider on certain type of woven labels, you should read the following and fully understand the basic concepts of woven labels.

There are mainly three different types of woven labels as categorized below;

(a) Damask

(b) Satin

(c) Taffeta

(a) Re: Damask labels are most common and considered high end quality woven labels compared to satin and taffeta, although it does not necessarily mean that damask labels are best matched with all types of garments. For example, shiny and soft texture of ‘satin’ woven labels is more likely to be used on baby/infant garments to enhance the soft and shiny impression.

Many customers consider damask labels because of their durability and ability to present detailed designs through high definition weaving. Compared to satin and taffeta, damask weaving compression ratio is higher during the weaving process, which results in more threads within the same area. And damask labels use 100 denier (thickness of thread) threads compared to 150 denier for satin and taffeta. Just like high definition television, it displays highly detailed designs and letters with bright solid colors. The only disadvantage you have with damask label is its higher cost compared to satin and taffeta.

(b) Re: Satin Label - the most distinctive feature about satin label is that they look shiny, because they are woven with satin threads. And because of their special weaving process, the background colors of the label are usually soft colors. Normally dark pink color background will turn out to be light pink, and yellow will turn out as a soft ivory background color.

Therefore, satin labels are excellent if you want to present soft, shiny, sophisticated and luxurious looking labels.

One of the downside of satin labels is its ability to present detailed designs. Because of the soft colors blending in together (background and design), the design does not stand out as much as damask or taffeta labels.

(c) Re: Taffeta labels are very simple and most inexpensive woven labels.

Taffeta labels are similar to damask labels, but they are woven at lower compression ratio, which means the labels are thinner and the ability to display detailed designs, strong solid colors are not as strong as damask labels.

Taffeta labels are still one of the popular types of woven labels for basic, everyday labels.

Many customers also prefer taffeta labels on their care labels due to its value pricing. With many different care contents, labeling cost can be expensive, but with taffeta, you can establish what you want on the labels and save money at the same time.

Definition of labels can also be measured by thickness of threads, also known as ‘denier’. Thinner the threads, higher the definition ratio, which means better, detailed design presentation. Damask labels usually use 100 denier threads but sometimes 50 or 80 deniers if we are trying to accomplish extremely high details within limited area. Taffeta and satin labels usually use 150 denier threads, which means the threads are thicker with less definition.

Full damask weaves & Half (1/2) damask weaves

Re: Full damask weaves & Half (1/2) damask weaves:

(a) Full damask weaves woven label is suitable for End folded designs and also have little small words.

(b) Half (1/2) damask weaves woven label is suitable for Loop folded designs with content & care instructions due the small words will be more clear and have a nice look on the label.

Therefore, if you design your labels have the content/care instructions; please use the half (1/2) damask weaves (i.e. Top part is full damask and bottom part is plain taffeta weaves.

Please ask us more details if needed.

Shuttle-Loom and Needle-Loom

Shuttle-Loom and Needle-Loom:

Actually both looms are the woven soft edge.

However, Shuttle Loom is more thinner and softer than needle-loom especially in White ground with dark designs.

Shuttle loom is the "figures weaving" so the yarn will not have too much heavy on the back side and also will not affect the ground from white to off-white or grey.

If you design the shirts & t-shirts, Ladies dress and/or high price fashion, may be you can choose shuttle-loom is more better.

Needle-loom can have the heavy & stronger hand feels on the labels so you can consider to make it for Jacket, Down Jackets and Jeans.
Of course, you can also let the needle-loom labels sewing on heavy fabrics clothing.

** Both above looms will have color's limitation. If your design have more colours than four contrasts so we suggest to make it as [ broad-loom ] + [ ultra-sonic edge ].

If you want to know more about their difference.
Please send us e-mail at once.
