QuestionsCategory: designHow do I create custom labels for t-shirts?
MLKay asked 1 year ago

What details do you usually put on custom t-shirt labels? If the original t-shirt label (with details such as size, fabric, etc.) is being removed, I am wondering what info do people generally put on the custom label that will be put on the t-shirt?

Here is what should appear on US apparel products:

  • # Size. Labels must be a minimum of 13/4 by 23/4 inches (4.5 x 7 cm).
  • Lettering. The required information must be no smaller than pica or 12 point type, with all parts of the information in letters of equal size and conspicuousness.
  • Country of Origin
    * Imported products must identify the country where they were processed or manufactured.
    * Products made entirely in the U.S. of materials also made in the U.S. must be labeled “Made in U.S.A.” or with an equivalent phrase.
    * Products made in the U.S. of imported materials must be labeled to show the processing or manufacturing that takes place in the United States, as well as the imported component.
    * Products manufactured in part in the U.S. and in part abroad must identify both aspects.
  • RN# or Company Name
    An RN# is a unique code for textiles that allows the garment to be “tracked”.
    You can obtain an RN# for free by going HERE. RN#’s are not required but you are required to label your product, this can be done with your RN or your companies name as it appears on business documents.
  • The product size
  • Care Instructions (there is a lot of talk about if this is really needed or not but according to the FTC it is very much required)

You have different things you need for different countries.
