If you're looking for something soft and shiny, that has a vintage look, you might be interested in satin woven labels.
Satin does not weave small details and lettering as well as damask labels and has more distinct weave. Satin polyester threads weave the background, while regular damask polyester threads are used to weave the text and design on your label.
Why choose satin woven labels over damask?
Good question. Satin is the same price as damask, so making the choice can be difficult. Most people who choose satin prefer the look and feel of the satin weave over the damask. If you are making vintage inspired clothing or accessories, satin would be a good fit. It's also great for infant apparel. If you want a label with lots of color and detail, satin woven labels might not be right for you, as you are limited in background color options.
Colors, Size, and Cutting
For satin woven labels, the only colors available for the background are white, off-white and black.
Keep into consideration that the background color is included when counting the amount of colors for satin woven labels. These are all threads woven together on a loom, so even a white or black background is a thread color.
We have a large variety of colors to choose from which are closely matched to Solid Coated or Uncoated Pantone numbers.
There is a maximum of eight colors for woven labels. The amount of colors in your label also affects price. Please ask a sales rep for more information.
You can do any size label you want, but size over a certain point does change the price. A sales rep can help you decide which size works best for your product and budget.
Satin woven labels are cut with a heat knife or sonic laser, which adheres the threads together to prevent fraying.
If you don't want to sew your labels on, you can produce satin woven labels with adhesive on the back. They can come with either heat (iron-on) adhesive or stick adhesive, which is pressure sensitive. The heat adhesive is completely permanent while the stick adhesive has a strong bond, but will eventually come off.
You can also die-cut satin woven labels to any shape, if you want a label that really stands out.
