Paper bottle neck tags

Paper bottle hang tags are the common tag for wine bottles. In general, we use paper material, which is convenient for printing and cost-effective. Generally, we will dig a large round hole at the top of the paper tag. Then, to fit the neck of the bottle, we will bend it over and cut out big round holes. The round hole is larger than the neck of the wine bottle and is movable at will. Sometimes, hangtag ropes, ribbons, or chains can be used to tie the bottleneck.

It has wide use in garments, boxes, homes, offices, and industries. We use it alone as an adhesive. But on more occasions, we coat it on various substrates. Then, process it into strips, and roll it into rolls of pressure-sensitive tapes. When you need to use it, tear off a strip. And press it lightly on the place to be glued, and it will stick. When you don’t need it, you can also peel it off. It’s just like sticking medical adhesive plaster.

It is a special type of tape. And it includes pressure-sensitive adhesive, substrate, primer, backside treatment, etc. Pressure-sensitive adhesive is the most important component of the tape. So, its role is to impart pressure-sensitive adhesive properties to the tape. The primer is to increase the bonding strength of PSA and substrate.

Why do we need jeans buttons and rivets?

At the beginning of its establishment, gold miners liked jeans because of their wear-resistant properties. At that time, however, miners often complained that the jeans would be stretched open after wearing them for less than a day. Hence, people design these jeans rivets to strengthen the jeans. Prevent it from being easily burst. So, although sometimes you feel that they are a bit in the way, you really can’t remove them. In fact, they are also good as decoration. And it’s safer not to burst your jeans when squatting and exercising.

FAQS

  1. What’s wrong with the studs and buttons on the jeans?

If it is a rubber core button rivets, the problem may be the rubber core. If you use bad plastic as the core, it will not be able to withstand the pressure of the nails. And it will squeeze out. So if we pull hard, it will fall off. With good plastic, this will not happen. Then, another reason may be the shape of the rivet. Some rivets are pointed nails, and some are threaded screws. However, in general, we use more threaded screws.

2. What should I do if the color of the surface fades when jeans buttons and rivets are fastened to the clothes?

The surface of button rivets fading may have a relation to electroplating and painting. If you use poor electroplating, or products without oil sealing, the color will not last long. After oxidation in the air, the color will fade. It also falls off during friction. Good paint generally will not fade, poor paint will fade.

3. What should I do if the button rivets I ordered is rough?

In general. it is due to the surface treatment process of the factory. If the polishing is in place and the mold of the product opens well, we can avoid the problem.

Different types of sewing threads

There are 3 different types of sewing threads for sewing various clothing trims or accessories: natural fiber, synthetic fiber, and mixed sewing thread. Sewing thread is the main thread material, which has both practical and decorative functions. The quality of it not only affects sewing efficiency and processing cost but affects the appearance quality of finished garments.

Sewing thread types

1. Natural fiber sewing thread

a. Cotton sewing thread:

Cotton sewing thread uses cotton fiber as raw material. It is a sewing thread made by refining, sizing, waxing, and other processes. Cotton sewing thread can be divided into no light (or soft thread), silk light, and wax light.

Cotton sewing thread has high strength and good heat resistance, suitable for high-speed sewing and durable pressing. Therefore, it is mainly used for sewing cotton fabrics, genuine leather, and high-temperature ironing clothes. The disadvantage is poor elasticity and wears resistance.

b. Silk thread:

Filament thread or silk thread is made of natural silk, with excellent luster. Its strength, elasticity, and wear resistance are better than cotton thread. Therefore, they are suitable for sewing all kinds of silk work clothes, high-end woolen work clothes, fur and leatherwork clothes, etc.

different types of sewing threads 204592-380

2. Synthetic fiber sewing thread

a. Polyester fiber sewing thread:

This is the most widely used and popular sewing thread at present. We make it from polyester filaments or staple fibers. Polyester fiber sewing thread has high strength and good elasticity. It is also wear-resistant and has low shrinkage.

Therefore, it is ideal for the sewing of denim, casual wear, leather products, wool, and military uniforms. The caveat here is that polyester sutures have a low melting point. Thus, it is easy to melt when sewing at high speed, and causing the thread to break. Therefore, it is necessary to choose the appropriate needle.

different types of sewing threads 204592-383

b. Nylon sewing thread:

Nylon sewing thread is made of pure nylon multifilament. It has three types: filament thread, short fiber thread, and elastic deformation thread. At present, the main variety is nylon filament thread. It has a large extension and good elasticity. Therefore, it is suitable for sewing chemical fiber, woolen, leather, and elastic work clothes.

The biggest advantage of nylon sewing thread is its transparency. Since the thread is transparent, the difficulty of sewing the wiring is reduced. The prospects are very broad. At present, this type of thread is mainly used for decals, cutting edges, and other parts that are not easily stressed.

c, Vinylon sewing thread:

Vinylon sewing thread is made of vinylon fiber. Its strength is high and the stitching is smooth. Therefore, it suits for sewing thick canvas, furniture cloth, labor protection supplies, etc.

D. Polyacrylonitrile fiber sewing thread:

It is made of polyacrylonitrile fiber. And, it is ideal for decorative thread and embroidery thread. Besides, its spinning yarn has a low twist and bright color.

different types of sewing threads 204588-378

3. Mixed sewing thread

A. Polyester/cotton sewing thread:

Polyester/cotton sewing thread is made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton blended synthetic fabric. They have the advantages of both polyester and cotton. Polyester/cotton sewing thread can meet the requirements of strength, wear resistance, and shrinkage. And it can also overcome the defect that polyester fiber is not heat-resistant. So it is very suitable for high-speed sewing. Then, they are suitable for all kinds of work clothes. Such as Cotton, polyester/cotton, etc.

b. Core-spun sewing thread:

Core-spun sewing thread has a filament core. And natural fibers cover it outside. The strength of the core-spun sewing thread depends on the core thread. While the wear and heat resistance depends on the outer yarn. Therefore, the core-spun sewing thread is suitable for high-speed sewing. And it’s also suitable for workwear that requires high sewing sturdiness.

What are the main qualities of a sewing thread?

  1. The surface is smooth and smooth, with uniform color and sewability.
  2. Certain fastness and abrasion resistance.
  3. Small shrinkage rate.

Synthetic fiber sewing thread has high strength, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and small shrinkage. Moreover, they have largely replaced cotton thread. When sewing elastic fabrics, we often use low-elastic polyester sewing thread. In order to avoid mismatches between the sewing thread and the fabric color, please use a transparent synthetic filament thread. Because the thread is transparent, it is suitable for sewing various colors of fabrics. And we wholesale stock online sewing thread for you. The different types of sewing threads have many applications. Then, we have an article that is 9 eco-friendly fabrics you should know. Maybe you can learn something from it.

What are the common models and specifications of polyester threads?

Common types of polyester threads are: 20s/2, 20s/3, 30s/2, 30s/3, 40s/2, 40s/3, 50s/2, 50s/3, 60s/2, 60s/3. Among which the most common is 40s/2.

What does the model of this polyester thread mean?

The first half of “/” indicates the yarn count. The 20s is 20 yarns, 30s is 30 yarns. What is “count”? The count refers to the weight of one pound (453.6g). The total length of yarn spun from the raw material is several 840 yards (1 yard = 91.4 cm). A total length of 16800 is the 20s, and a total length of 33600 is 40s. Is it very complicated, right? In fact, we just need to know that the larger the number in front of the s, the finer the yarn.

What does the 2 or 3 after “/” mean? This refers to the number of strands of yarn. Now, you can take a closer look at the sewing thread you have on hand. That’s not a single yarn, but 2 or 3 strands twisted together. The expression of 2 strands is /2, and the expression of 3 strands is /3. 20s/2 means that the sewing thread is twisted by 2 strands of 20 yarns. And 20s/3 means that the sewing thread is twisted from 3 strands of 20 yarns.

Just like selecting needles, use thin threads for thin fabrics and thick threads for thick materials. 40s/2 thread suits household sewing. Also, we can use it to sew ordinary fabrics. Then, we can use 20s/2 for thick materials or decorative lines on the surface.

Custom woven label & printed fabric label: which is better for you?

Different labels & tags suit different clothing and brands. And then, it will also produce different effects. So when you’re customizing clothing labels, it’s important to choose the right label for your garments product and brand positioning. In this article, we mainly talk about custom woven labels and printed fabric labels. And which one is better for your brand.

1. How to choose them from a practical point of view?

Under what conditions do we need custom woven and printed labels? Custom woven labels are custom neck labels and main labels. For example, it mainly includes customized logos, sizes, and patterns. But the pattern can only customize the rough outline. If you need better effects such as portraits, then I suggest you customize the printed label.

That is, when you need the main label, you need to customize the custom woven label. When you need wash labels, you need to customize the custom printed fabric label.

Secondly, it is recommended to choose a woven label for ready-to-wear brands. There are more Kids and womenswear brands that will choose printed labels. Because children’s clothing has a shorter life cycle. So, it is more cost-effective to choose a label with relatively low colorfastness. If it is a suit brand, you can choose custom woven labels. Because they are more textured. And they are not easy to wear and tear and have high colorfastness.

2. How to choose from the effect achieved?

Printed fabric labels can express information and patterns more clearly and delicately. And they can print more details. But the woven label can’t express more details, And it depends on the effect your logo wants to achieve. If you like woven style labels, you can customize the logo, and patterned woven label.

3. From the colorfastness to washing

If your clothing brand does not require high washing color-fastness, you can customize the printed fabric label. If the requests are higher, it is better to choose a woven label, which is not easy to wash off.

4. In terms of cost

From an economical (cost) point of view, if you want a cheap label, choose the printed fabric label. If you want a high-end and luxurious label, it is recommended to choose a custom woven label.

5. From an environmental point of view, which one is better?

Woven labels can be made from recyclable materials. It is woven from recycled yarn. And we have the OEKO-TEX® certification of woven labels. There are no recyclable materials for printed labels for now.

6. In terms of color

We can only make up to 7 colors for one custom woven label. If you want an ombre color, the printed fabric label is more natural. There will be obvious excess and layering on the woven labels. And printed labels can add more colors to express your logo and patterns. Then, the printed fabric surface is more natural and smooth.

The printed fabric label has a high color request for CMYK and Pantone colors. And it is recommended to use Pantone color numbers. But, the cost of coloring the Pantone color card alone will be a little higher.

7. If the customer needs to add variables, which one should they choose?

If you need serial numbers and expect different numbers for each label. Like 10001, 10002, etc. Then we recommend that you customize the printed labels. It can be the logo above, the second line below is the serial number. And other contents remain unchanged. This is for statistical distinction.

8. From their features

The custom woven label is high-end, firm, with clear lines and soft touch. Due to the printing method, the labels are colorful and high definition. Therefore, the product is more fashionable. Production efficiency is also high.

Because the production method of woven labels is similar to that of woven fabrics. So, its yield is not as high as that of printed labels. But it is washable and not easy to fade. So the product appears to be relatively high-end.

9. From their hand feel

The edges of the custom woven label are also softer, but firmer. This is perfect for a variety of ready-to-wear clothing brands. Because they do not irritate the user’s skin. However, if you pursue a more comfortable children’s clothing brand, please choose a printed fabric label. So that it will not rub against the children’s skin.

10. From the appearance

In terms of appearance, the quality of the woven label is higher than that of the printed label. And the surface of the printed label looks thinner than the woven label. Besides, it is not as strong as the woven label. Therefore, for some small-cost clothing brands, it is more cost-effective to choose printed fabric labels.

What is a woven label? And how to make them?

What is a woven label? It is a fabric clothing label on the loom as damask, salvage, satin, reverse woven labels with damask, salvage, or crochet machine. They mainly have two types: selvage and trimming, with text, letters, and LOGO patterns. Usually, we sew them on clothes, pants, shirts, shoes and hats, home textiles, etc.

What is a woven label?

Woven labels are woven on the loom by fixing warp yarns. And the woven label machine prints logos, graphics, letters, numbers, 3D signs, and colors with weft yarns. The woven label itself is not big. And the specification of the pattern design must sometimes be accurate to 0.05mm. If it is slightly larger by 0.05mm, then this type of woven label will be out of shape compared to the original. Naturally, it is acceptable for some consumers to require a woven label with a difference of 0.05mm.

However, for some relatively high-end well-known brands, a difference of 0.05mm is not enough. And it must be accurate. Because this type of woven label is a long-term user evaluation medium, it has a brand name. In terms of brand clothing, the label is a tangible medium for user evaluation and publicity planning. Please refer to the woven label photo gallery if you what to see more woven label samples.

What is the cutting process of a woven label?

The cutting process includes hot cutting (burning edge woven label), laser cutting (laser woven label), ultrasonic cutting, half-fold, two ends fold, hanging ear fold, and irregular iron fold.

What are the different processes on the back of a woven label?

According to the different processes on the back, we have a cotton-filled woven label, adhesive-backed woven label, overlock woven label; back thermal adhesive woven label; back double-sided adhesive woven label, and back paper plain-woven label.

How many materials are used in a woven label?

  • Ribbon (affordable, can achieve the best washing effect);
  • Tape (the tape is also called plant-coated cloth, the surface is slippery. Therefore, the printing effect is the best, but it is not as washable as the ribbon);
  • Cotton belt (natural and eco friendly);
  • Polyester tape (smooth fabric, good print, washable)

Different types of woven labels

There are mainly 3 types of woven labels. Such as damask woven labels, satin woven labels, and reverse woven labels.

Damask woven labels

Damask woven labels have yarn behind and his edges are cut. According to their different textures, we can divide them into two types. The first is the flat product label. The other is the segmented product label. Because damask woven labels are the most common type of woven labels. And the workmanship is fine and the details are well done. Therefore, it is very popular with clothing manufacturers and brands. And it is cost-effective and can have mass production. Then, its price is not expensive and can save the cost of customers.

Satin woven labels

Satin woven label is a type of selvage label. And satin woven labels are also woven satin material. It has softer edges and surfaces like silk. So, it looks more premium and is slightly more expensive. Because it’s starched and high-end, so many clothing brands will customize it.

Reverse woven labels

Reverse woven labels are also a kind of satin woven label. But its satin is in behind. The front is the reverse of the satin label. And some colors (underground colors) cannot be made flat and double-sided. The opposite side of the satin finish suits the base color. But the workmanship is very good. So, we hardly see any flaws.

The reversed satin woven labels are very special and few customers choose them. Both sides are totally reversed compared with satin woven garment labels. And it means that the smooth front side is on the back. While the striped backside is at the front.

What are the woven label types classified by application?

  1. The main woven labels. They are suitable for the main collar label on the neck or trousers;
  2. Fold in half woven labels. It is often used for decorative labels on the side seams and coating edges of clothes;
  3. Woven wash labels. We add washing instructions inside the garment;
  4. Woven size labels. There are men’s and women’s clothing, children’s clothing as well as upper & lower clothing. Such as 150/70A S, 175/75A XL, and so on.
  5. Decorative labels. They refer to all kinds of woven badges, sleeve labels, trouser pocket labels, etc.;

Types of woven label machine

Damask woven label is the current mainstream practice. Because of its high yield and high-cost performance. The salvage woven label machine is relatively old and high-end, but the output is low. And crochet machines are basically few factories in use now.

Damask woven machine

The most obvious way to identify it is to look at the cut edge of the label. We generally use hot cutting. And hot-cutting woven labels have obvious incisions. The cut edge feels slightly hard, and it is black. The other cutting way is ultrasonic cutting. And it also has obvious incisions, but the cut edge feels smoother and does not sting the skin.

Features:

  • The cloth label is woven like a piece of cloth along the warp direction. And then cut, so we also call it a trimming machine.
  • According to their different textures, it has two categories. Namely, plane woven label (plain) and satin woven label (twill).
  • The plane woven label has a general plane, heavy shuttle, and so on. But satin has a double satin.
  • According to the warp used, it can be black flat, white flat and black satin, and white satin.
  • The different types of threads include gold thread woven labels, a silver thread woven labels, pure cotton woven labels, etc.

Salvage woven label machine

Salvage woven labels include satin woven labels and reverse woven labels. And the cloth label of the salvage woven label comes out of the machine as a whole. So its edges belong to the wrapping type. The weft yarns seem to be the same color from the beginning to the end and feel flexible. The disadvantage is that the production efficiency is low. Generally, it can only use no more than four colors.

The biggest feature of this machine is that it can only produce satin main labels. The way to tell is to look at the edges. The edges are selvage, with no cuts, and the hand feel is fine. There are mainly three kinds of white satin, black satin, and white satin ironing woven labels.

Crochet woven label machine

The crocheted woven label is similar to the salvage woven label. However, it is not a shuttle-type mechanical product, but a knitted product. The crochet sewing machines can weave quality various crafts. It can even add transparent polyester yarn to the warp.

However, its weft is tighter and stronger. So, we use them as a hot color label. Using the different features of warp and weft yarns, the bottom plate is colored by high-temperature transfer printing. So, the cost of this type of label is high.

What are some restrictions on the production size of the woven label machine?

Width limitation:

  • Damask machine: The minimum width requirement is 1CM. If it is less than 1CM, it needs to be cut by hand. The scrap rate and the cost are high. There is basically no upper limit requirement for the width. The maximum width can be 110CM.
  • Salvage machine: the width is between 1CM and 5CM, and the maximum is 5.0CM.
  • Crochet machine: the width is between 0.6CM and 3.5CM, and the maximum is 3.5CM.

Color restrictions:

  • Damask machine: The optional range is the widest. There are up to 12 colors, including gold, silver, black, and other metal threads.
  • Salvage machine: it can weave up to 4 colors (including satin base). However, for satin-colored woven labels, we can only use silk threads(it is not easy to be dyed during the ironing process). Also, we can not use gold, silver, black, and other metal wires. And the high temperature is easy to break. In addition, the ironing process is a proprietary process of the salvage machine. So, other machines can’t do it.
  • Crochet machine: it can weave up to 4 colors.

What is a woven label density?

The density of the woven label refers to the weft density. The higher the weft density, the higher the quality of the woven label. Weft density refers to how many cotton yarns there are in the woven label in the 1CM range. If the cotton yarn is denser, the emphasis on the woven label will be more delicate. The delicate woven label belongs to the high-end woven label. In addition, we use D to indicate cotton yarn size. 100D is coarser, 75D is finer, 50D is finer yarn, and 30D is finer cotton yarn.

How to distinguish the quality of woven labels?

woven labels_DSC6407

Look at the color of the woven label. The color is generally selected from the Pantone color system. The color comparison here is all based on the original color or the Pantone color number of the design draft. There is no special indication for this. And it can only be judged by the senses.

How to make woven labels? -7 steps

  • First, use design software (such as CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator) to make the design draft of the woven label. Most of them are simple typesetting. If you need a woven label with shading, you need to use pictures or real samples for reference. The shading may not be reflected in the design draft.
  • Second, to import the design draft into the computer program of the loom.
  • Third, prepare the yarn according to the design draft. The main thing is to consider the color. Conventional colors are generally available in stock. But unconventional colors require custom dyeing.
  • The fourth step is to assemble the yarn into the weaving machine to start weaving. And then, package it at the same time. Then computer machine uses Ultrasonic cutting, slitting, and rolling. While the wooden shuttle machine directly rolls and packages.
  • In the fifth step, put the rolled woven label into the cutting and folding machine. Then cut and fold according to the size required by the customer.
  • Then, press, iron, etc. as needed, and make post-processing.
  • Finally, make a quality inspection, sorting, and packaging

Points that should notice when making woven labels

In general, how to make woven labels? That is woven on a special high-speed machine-like cloth. Then cut into strips according to the target width. Because of the heat-melting properties of polyester. The yarns will stick to each other when we cut them, and will not scatter. It is also for this reason that the appearance and feel will be affected to a certain extent. A good machine and an ultrasonic cut are better than a regular electric knife. And we can sort striped cloth labels and sent them to garment factories for processing.

If the requests are strict, we still need to cut and fold the labels. Because the maximum width of this single faucet machine is 20.8cm. That is to say, labels of this width can be woven, and various shapes are available.

How to make a high-quality woven label?

High-quality woven labels require a high process, but the output is low. There are also plane/satin finishes, which have a soft feel. High-quality woven labels are more suitable for high-end clothing items, such as fashion, suits, etc. The Japanese manufacturers who are very particular about quality use the most. The selvage label is generally a satin label. But the satin background color is difficult to express. Therefore, we often use processes such as ironing/dyeing to solve this problem.

Why Use a Carton for Red Wine Wrapping?

In fact, it is not difficult to find that many wines will choose some wooden wine boxes or paper wine boxes for packaging. In fact, red wine is very afraid of the light. If the red wine is exposed to light, it will cause the red wine to ripen prematurely. Then, it will affect the taste. Wooden wine boxes or paper wine boxes can isolate the light source. So it will be perfect when storing wine.

It is the beautiful carton packaging that makes the wine more firm in the carton. It has a certain protective effect on red wine. This is also very conducive to the transportation of wine.

Tips for Wine wrapping When Gifting

First, you need red wine wrapping paper to wrap the wine bottle. Second, you need to choose a slightly hard mailing paper tube (for mailing fragile and easily foldable items). You also need to measure the width of the bottle. In most cases, such as wine bottles from Bordeaux and Alsace, you can find a 3-inch diameter paper tube.

There are the following types of wines with bottles that meet the above heights. Such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Riesling and Gewürztraminer wines. Wider wine bottles, such as Champagne, Burgundy, and Port, require a 4-4.5-inch diameter paper tube.

These cartons also need to have a lid if you want to close the package. Also, you need to prepare some polyethylene foam stuffed into the paper tube. It aims to prevent the wine bottle from slamming and exposing your gift. Of course, if you want to open the gift easily, you only need to prepare a base for the paper tube. Then, leave the top empty and add some other decorations. The latter is more suitable for dinner parties or occasions where the wine is about to be drunk.
