Side seam label

What is a side seam label?

As the name suggests, a side seam label is a fabric label type where the label is attached to the sides of any clothing item. Such labels can be easily found inside the garments on the vertical stitches.

How do you attach a side seam label to a fabric?

Attaching a side seam label is the same as attaching any other clothing label. Here is a step-by-step guide to doing so.

Design and Cut

The first step in attaching the side seam label is to design and cut it based on the design. You should add multiple colors, graphics, texts, and other items to the design to give it an outstanding look. After printing the design, you should cut it with sharp scissors or any industrial machine to reduce fabric wastage and have sharp edges.


Next, position the label correctly on the side seam of any clothing item you want to attach it to. Attaching the label to the inside seam is a best practice widely followed in the fashion industry.


If you have positioned the label correctly, you can start stitching it on the seam using a powerful sewing machine. While sewing, ensure that you sew at the correct position; otherwise, you may face other issues.


In the end, finish this project by cutting loose threads and ironing the stitched label. Doing these two things will help create a better and more comfortable side seam label.

What are the different types of side seam labels?

Side seam labels can be created using various approaches. Below are some ways to create awesome side seam labels for clothing items.

Heat Transfer Labels

In heat-transfer labels, the design is transferred to the label using heating elements, which provides a clean way of adding designs to any fabric.

Woven Labels

Woven labels are created using durable fabrics and weaving processes. The design and texts are woven on the fabric and last much longer than other label types. Moreover, making such labels is costly as it requires much more effort.

Printed Labels

As the name suggests, these labels are created by printing the designs using fabric printers. They are cost-effective, and anyone with a fabric printer can easily make them.
