*Nineteenth Amendment tested!

A few quick tips:

  • Don’t select heat transfer labels – unless you have a construction reason to do so. Heat transferred labels tend to wear over time.
  • Woven labels have great durability compared to satin labels.
  • A lot of these suppliers can provide hang tags as well! So be sure to check them out at the same time – you may get a discount in bulk!
  • In a time crunch? Consider making your own labels at home or use tags printed on business cards with a hole punch. Panda Trim (above) can even print on-demand in store! Really strapped? Print custom yardage as a print pattern wit your label and cut it #hack.
  • Consider getting dark and light labels to correspond with the colors of your garments so that they don’t show through your fabric!

What else do I need?

Great question! Don’t forget:

  • Size label – a good thing to stock up on and usually sold in bulk. We also suggest stocking this in house for on-demand orders.
  • Care instructions label – we suggest dry clean only or hand wash for Nineteenth Amendment garments. We also suggest stocking this in house for on-demand orders.
  • Content label – another good one to stock up on so you have them for the fabric you tend to use most. We also suggest stocking this in house for on-demand orders.
  • ‘American made of foreign materials’ or ‘USA made of foreign materials’ label – we suggest this label as most of your materials may not originate from the US
