How do you sew a name tag on clothes?


Sew in labels which are personalized with a name (and perhaps room number or telephone number) are ideal for labeling valuable clothes as it helps mislaid items to be returned to their owner.

Sew in labels can be stitched onto clothing very easily, and can just as easily be removed if necessary.

Sew on labels are very durable and will go through a regular washer and dryer, and also withstand dry cleaning without any effect.

Sewing labels are often the only labeling solution for certain kinds of fabrics such as loose knit sweaters, shawls, etc., fleece items, and other fabrics which have a “fuzzy” or “linty” finish to them.

How do you make a sew in tag?

To machine sew – simply lay your pre-cut polyester sew on label flat onto your garment. Machine sew all around, with small, tight stitches. We have some photos on our sew on polyster page.  

To hand sew – use small, very tight stitches – if you have to hand sew the polyester labels. The material is quite tough, so you need a sharp needle. If the stitches are too large, they might pull through the material.  If you can only hand sew ( no machine ) we recommend you purchase the iron on and then put a hand stitch each side after ironing.

What are the best name tags for clothes?

Sewing name tags on clothes or school uniforms is a very slow method.  It takes a long time to successfully sew name tape or initials onto a piece of cloth or name tag.  You can try, but only if you’re good at sewing and have the right tools on hand (a sewing kit?).  Otherwise, those labels you laboriously stitched are likely to fall off in the first wash.  This will take you a long time!
