Step 1: design the care label: brand, instructions and symbols

When designing the care label, two elements must be taken into consideration: the washing or other care instructions and the symbols. The instructions describe how the article can best be cleaned. The washing symbols indicate the temperature at which the garment should be washed, whether it can be tumble dried, and other relevant information. Last but not least, you can add your brand name or logo. This can all be done in just a few clicks by using our tool.

Custom washing labels

The care label describes the allowable treatment of the garment without damaging the textile. Whether this treatment is necessary or sufficient is not stated. A milder than specified treatment is always acceptable. The symbols are protected, and their use is required to comply with the license conditions; incorrect labeling is prohibited. A bar below each sign calls for a gentler treatment than usual and a double bar for very gentle treatment.

Care labels wash superlabelstore

A stylized washtub is shown, and the number in the tub means the maximum wash temperature (degrees Celsius). A bar under the tub signifies a gentler treatment in the washing machine. A double bar signifies very gentle handling. A hand in the tub indicates that only hand washing is allowed. A cross through the washtub means that the textile may not be washed under normal household conditions.

In the European standard, bars below the washtub symbol indicate the level of wash agitation recommended. The absence of a bar indicates maximum agitation (cotton wash). A single bar indicates medium agitation, and a double bar indicates very minimal agitation. The bar symbols also indicate the recommended level of spin, with more bars indicating a lower preferred spin speed.

Custom laundry labels

A laundry symbol, also called a care symbol, is a pictogram representing a method of washing, for example, drying, dry-cleaning, and ironing clothing. Such symbols are written on labels, known as care labels or care tags, attached to clothing to indicate how a particular item should best be cleaned.

Each clothing label should tell you what the fabric is made from and include symbols that let you know how to care for it. Here’s our essential guide to what each symbol means.

A circle in the square symbolizes a clothes dryer. One dot requires drying at reduced temperature and two dots for average temperature. The crossed symbol means that the clothing does not tolerate machine drying. In the U.S. and Japan, there are other icons for natural drying.

Although there is an international standard that has been agreed by the ISO and within Europe by the EU, copyright laws make it difficult to publish these widely. However, there have been attempts to summarize the primary national and international standards.

Care tags

Care instructions are small solutions to big problems. Care labels provide guidelines to consumers about apparel care and the best cleaning procedures to be used for a particular combination of fabric, thread decoration, and construction techniques. Following the instructions on the care, labels is an assurance that the appearance and fit of the garment will be maintained after repeated cleaning treatments.

From a manufacturer’s point of view, damage to garments from incorrect cleaning methods can lead to complaints, costly customer returns, and a bad image. At the same time, accurate and written care labels can prevent customer dissatisfaction. From a consumer’s perspective, accurate and clearly written care instructions serve as a cleaning guide and influence purchase. Garments with ease of care are often preferred over garments with complicated or difficult-to-understand care procedures.

Many different care labeling systems have evolved over the world. Some have been established as governmental regulations, while others are international standards. Not all of them, however, are mandatory.
