Our sewn hem tags are a fashionable, attention-grabbing add-on that give your shirts or sweaters a feel of higher quality, while making your brand instantly recognizable.
Hem tags are commonly placed on the hip, neck, sleeve, or hoodie pockets of your apparel.
Hem tags are commonly placed on the hip, neck, sleeve, and hoodie pockets. The most common is the lower left hip area of a t-shirt.
We are happy to create your hem tags for you. Keep in mind, hem tags generally take 3-4 weeks to be made, therefore we can only create hem tags on our standard, 2 week turnaround, orders, plus another 1-2 weeks for manufacturing of the hem tags. However, this extra 1-2 weeks is only needed on your first order of hem tags. Once we have your hem tags in stock, there is only an additional 3 day turnaround for attaching them to your garments. To have labels in stock with us, we recommend you order far more than you need on your first order. We'll keep the rest in stock and ready to use on your subsequent orders.
If you'd rather source the labels yourself (or already have them), you can send them to us to use on your orders. Please ship them to your account manager's attention so we know how to identify them once they’ve reached our door.
The neck of the shirt can also be relabeled by removing the stock manufacturing label and replacing it with a custom woven label, which is typically placed “under the tape,” though it can be placed “over the tape” if you prefer. "Under the tape" simply means under the seam, "over the tape" is sewn over the seam.
When placing a label on the neck area, we recommend satin printed labels. They are super soft, smooth, and non-irritating against the skin. For hip and sleeve labels, damask labels are more commonly used. The higher the damask count, the finer the thread, therefore the softer the label and the more detail you’re able to include. Athletic style hem tags are generally placed on the hip area and do not wrap around the bottom of the shirt, but are sewn on the front of the shirt. These are generally approximately 2" tall and 3" wide in size.
We do not sell custom hem tags by themselves, but only with the purchase of a custom printed order in which we're using the hem tags on the order.
