Even in ancient times, before paper appeared, manufacturers marked their products by putting brands on them, hung pieces of leather or parchment with the necessary information. Thus, they declared themselves, their name and products.
Later, with the advent of paper, the appearance of the label began to change. They began to write not only the name, trademark and product name, but also the characteristics, methods of application, care and storage.
Wardrobe items are no exception. In order for any clothes and shoes, accessories to serve for a long time, you need to take proper care of them. In most cases, the paper label was lost, torn or rubbed. Which made it difficult to get proper care.

Over time, manufacturers began to divide sewn-in labels into types:
- composition and care label
- main label

To apply the necessary information, depending on the tape, different printing methods are used:
- thermal transfer
- full color printing

For care labels, size labels, as a rule, thermal transfer printing is used. Since wardrobe items are washed and dry cleaned, it is very important that care labels are durable. It depends on the quality of the materials used.
Workwear manufacturers generally use nylon and polyester labels. Labels made from these materials can withstand the boiling point, which is very important in this case.
