Neck seam label

What is a neck seam label?

A neck seam label is a fabric label stitched to the neck seam of any clothing item. It usually provides vital information about the clothing item, care instructions, and sometimes branding. These clothing labels are often found on sweaters, dresses, and T-shirts.

What are the different types of neck seam labels?

Neck seam labels are quite popular, so they have different versions. Let’s look at some popular versions below.

Heat-transfer Labels

As the name suggests, these labels are created using a heat-transferring process. Here, the designs from one fabric are applied to another using heat transfer, and it is quite comfortable to wear such labels. Due to their comfort, they are often used in activewear clothing.

Embossed Labels

Embossed labels are made by raising or pressing the designs on the fabric. Usually, the design and fabric are at different depths, which gives the label and design a standout look.

Printed Labels

Printed labels are created by printing text and graphics on any label fabric. Here, you have the highest customization options, and you can play around with different colors, texts, or graphics to make your label designs unique.

Woven Labels

Woven labels are high-quality labels created by weaving the designs. They are hard to make, but they are also highly durable. Due to these characteristics, they are often seen in luxury brands and high-end fashion items.

How can you attach a neck seam label?

Below is a step-by-step guide for developing a neck seam label using any of the above label types and adding it to any of your items.


Find the center point of the back neckline of any item to which you want to attach the label, and position your label correctly on this centerline.


If the label is well-centered and positioned correctly, it is time to stitch it using a sewing machine or by hand. While you stitch the label, ensure it does not move; otherwise, the output will not be the best.


After stitching the label, remove any extra threads and loose ends. Once that is done, check the label’s positioning again, and if it is right, you have completed the process.
