Care labels

Care labels

It is a legal obligation for retailers to attach wash care labels to every garment, but how can you ensure that care labelling won’t slow your supply chain down?

Over the last few decades, the amount of information required on care labels has changed dramatically. Country of origin information and care instructions are legal requirements in many countries, and retailers often require a large amount of point of sale information including style numbers and size. This data must be fixed permanently in the garment, often in multiple languages.

Wash care labels aren’t just there to tick a box. They also play an important role in educating consumers on garment production and care, and if an item is damaged during its customer lifecycle as a result of unclear or illegible care labelling, the retailer may face reputational damage and a spike in returns.

Care labels need to be attached to a garment prior to sale, and remain in great condition throughout the garment’s lifecycle in order to fulfill their role. It is therefore of paramount importance that garment brands find a professional garment packaging partner to supply high quality labels that will arrive on time and last the distance.
