Rules of the thumb for the design
of a woven or printed fabric label

Design rules for woven labels

The golden rule: print it first!

If all elements of the label artwork are well legible on a printout in the real label size, they will also be legible on the woven or printed fabric label. A laser print gets quite close to the woven or printed result.

More rules

- Letterings should have a minimum height of 1.5 mm (measure the lower
  case letters).

- For woven labels, avoid a narrow charcater spacing of small letterings.

- Letterings that are made of handwriting or italic style fonts should have a
  minimum height of 2 mm (measure the lower case letters).

- The distance of graphic elements to the label borders should be at least 1.5 mm.
   In case of a thermo- or self-adhesive backing or a laser cuttuíng, the distance must
   be at least 3, rather 4 mm.

- The distance of graphic elements to a possible fold should be at least 2 mm
  on each side.

- Gradients and shadows are not reproducible.


A tip: Remember good design principles

For a woven label the same design principles apply as for any other artwork or logo. A good design is simple and reduced to what shall be noticed, it uses maximum 2 font types and it leaves enough space arround graphic elements to have them take effect.
