Labeling is caring
Over the years, Cruz Label has seen some awesome designs for main labels. These labels are identified with the brand logo and may have some other information about the clothing. Some customers choose to have care instructions on the back of the main label design using a center fold. So, when you flip over the label you can see the care instructions. Others choose to have a separate care label and have two labels sewn on to the garment. Regardless of how you choose to show the caring instruction of the garment, it is important to follow the rules of the FTC (Federal Trade Commission).
For many customers shopping for clothes, they look at the labeling to check mainly for the following six things:
- Name of the brand - "Which company made this great design?"
- Country of origin - "Where was it made?"
- Size - "Looks like it's going to fit, but let's make sure."
- Material - "Is this 100% cotton or mixed with something else?"
- Care instruction - "Can I just put it in the washer and dryer?"
- Quality of label itself - "The label feels scratchy on my skin. Do I really want to take the time to cut it?"
Many designers are concerned with the design of the main label when they order that they forget about other important factors in care labels. Providing accurate information is key to having your clothing line protected from unnecessary relabeling process as well as liability. In fact, the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) has strict rules and regulations when it comes to complying with care labeling. Please take some time to review the rules of the FTC:
