1. Overview #
In the garment and textile industry, self-adhesive labels are widely used, playing a key role in conveying crucial product information to consumers. These labels, typically attached to garments, display brand information, product specifications, material components, washing methods, and other important information, serving as a significant medium for building and enhancing brand image and providing consumers with decision-making information.
2. Product Features #
2.1 Customizability #
Self-adhesive labels in the garment and textile industry can be highly customized to accommodate different brand requirements and styles. They can adopt various colors, shapes, sizes, and designs to meet the branding and marketing needs of different products.
2.2 Durability #
As garment textiles need to withstand various environmental conditions such as washing, friction, and folding, self-adhesive labels need to have strong durability and stability. Good durability ensures that the information on the labels remains clear and visible even after multiple washes and uses of the garment.
2.3 Information Richness #
Self-adhesive labels can provide a wealth of information, including brand logos, product specifications, material components, production location, washing, and care guides, etc. This information can help consumers better understand the product and provide references for purchasing decisions.
3. Printing Requirements #
3.1 Clarity #
The information on the labels needs to be clear and easy to read, and the colors need to be bright and contrasting. This is because labels are typically small in size and contain a lot of information, so high contrast and clear fonts are needed to ensure readability.
3.2 Wash Resistance #
As garments need to be washed frequently, the printing materials and processes of labels need to have good wash resistance. Otherwise, the washing process may cause the information on the labels to become blurred or faded.
3.3 Comfort for the Human Body #
Since labels may come into direct contact with consumers’ skin, the printing inks and label materials need to meet safety and environmental standards to ensure they won’t cause discomfort to consumers’ skin.
4. Material Selection #
4.1 Plastic #
Plastic labels excel in wear resistance and water resistance, but they also have a significant environmental impact. However, more environmentally friendly options, such as biodegradable plastic, are now available.
4.2 Paper #
Paper labels offer good printing effects and lower costs, but they have poorer wear resistance and water resistance.
4.3 Fabric #
Fabric labels are generally softer and more comfortable, making them more suitable for direct contact with skin. However, their printing effects and durability may be somewhat limited.
5. Current Developments #
With the growing awareness of environmental protection and changing consumer demands, self-adhesive labels in the garment and textile industry are gradually moving towards environmentally friendly, sustainable, and intelligent development. For example, labels made from environmentally friendly materials and labels embedded with smart chips are becoming popular.
6. Future Development Trends #
6.1 Environmental Protection #
With the attention of consumers and governments to environmental issues, environmental protection and sustainability have become important trends for the future development of the garment and textile industry. In label selection, more environmentally friendly materials, such as recyclable materials and biodegradable materials, will be more favored.
6.2 Intelligence #
With the development of technology, intelligent labels will provide consumers with a richer shopping experience. For example, through labels embedded with RFID chips, consumers can obtain more product information through smart devices, and shopping and payment can be more easily carried out.
6.3 Personalization #
Consumers’ demand for personalization and customization is increasing, which poses new challenges and opportunities for label design and manufacturing. Labels can be an important tool for brand personalization and differentiation, and can meet consumers’ personalized needs through innovative design.
