What is a neck label:

"Neck label" is a term usually used in the context of clothing manufacture, particularly for t-shirts or other clothing that has a label sewn into the neck area. Neck tags serve as an identifier for the brand or manufacturer of the garment and can also include important information such as care instructions, sizing, and material composition. Neck tags are usually small and discreet and sewn to the inside of the garment so as not to distract from the overall appearance of the garment.

Types of fabrics that can be used for custom neck labels:

Different types of fabrics can be used for neck labels, depending on the purpose and needs. Here are some types of fabrics that are often used:

  • Synthetic fabrics such as polyester or nylon: water resistant, fade resistant, and easy to wash
  • Cotton fabrics: soft, comfortable to wear, and of good quality for screen printing and embroidery
  • Flannel: thick and soft, perfect for cold weather
  • Linens: a coarse and soft material, suitable for formal wear neck tags
  • Jersey fabric: stretchy, comfortable to wear, and suitable for casual clothing neck tags
  • Satin: Satin is a popular choice for neck labels because it has a smooth, silky texture, which is comfortable against the skin.
  • Damask: Damask is a woven fabric that is often used for neck labels because it is durable and has a luxurious look.
  • Twill: Twill is a type of weave that creates a diagonal pattern and is often used for neck labels because it is strong and durable.

The best choice depends on quality, price, and final requirements. If you need a neck tag that is water-resistant and fade-resistant, then a synthetic fabric such as polyester is a good choice. If you're looking for comfort and a more upscale look, linens or cotton may be more appropriate.

It is important to choose a fabric for the neck tag that is comfortable and appropriate for the type of garment used. In addition, the fabric must withstand repeated washing and wear and tear without tearing or damage.

Fabric types that cannot be used for neck labels:

There is no specific type of fabric that cannot be used for neck tags, but some fabrics may be better suited than others based on the type of garment and the finish desired. For example, some fabrics, such as delicate silk or satin, may not be suitable for neck tags because they rip or damage easily during washing and handling. Conversely, fabrics with a tighter weave and greater breathability, such as cotton or polyester, are often used for neck tags. Ultimately, the best fabric for a neck tag will depend on factors such as the type of garment, the intended use of the garment, and the desired look and feel of the label.

Some types of fabrics that are not suitable for neck labels because they have a texture that is not smooth or too thin so that it is uncomfortable to use as neck labels are:

  • Coarse fabrics, such as rattan or jute.
  • Fabrics with too rough a surface, such as denim fabrics.
  • Fabrics that are too sheer, such as organdy or georgette fabrics.
  • Fabrics that are too smooth, such as satin or chiffon.

Alternatively, fabrics such as cotton, flannel, or fleece are more suitable for neck labels as they have a smooth texture and are comfortable to wear.

Can custom leather tags be used for neck tags?

Skin tags are usually not recommended for use on the neck, as the skin around the neck is usually more sensitive and prone to irritation and allergic reactions than the rest of the skin. Also, because the neck moves a lot when we talk, eat, or move our head, skin tags placed there may come off or cause irritation.

Alternatively, you can try using t-shirt labels or special fabric labels specifically designed for use on the neck area. These labels usually have a material that is softer and more comfortable to use on the skin, and are usually also durable and do not come off or damage easily even though they are exposed to lots of activities.

What size should be for the neck tag:

The size of the neck tag should vary depending on the brand, type of dress, and size of the wearer. Some brands even offer size charts that show how many inches of the neck tag will fit a particular shirt size. In general, a standard neck tag is about 2" wide by 3" but can be larger or smaller depending on the design, style of dress, and intended use. Some brands prefer smaller tags to minimize distraction, while others prefer larger tags to display additional branding or information. It's best to be sure to read the sizing guide before buying a shirt to ensure that the neck tag fits comfortably.

Ultimately, the size of the neck tag must be suitable for the garment and its purpose while still allowing enough space to clearly display the necessary information, such as brand name, size, care instructions, and country of origin.
