In order to understand better the difference between the Satin Fabrics, here we have listed the main aspects you have to look for, when choosing your fabric label.
Durability - The main important feature you have to require from printed fabric labels is on first place to be durable. In most cases the label has to go through washing and other treatments and the quality has to remain the same. The satin fabrics we offer have different durability depending on your requirements.
Density - The density of the fabric is important if you have to choose between dense and loose fabrics. The density of fabrics affects the quality of the imprint, the durability and the softness of the label. Also labels with lower density may increase transperancy.
Certificate - we offer fabric labels Oeko-tex® 100 certified. This means that the fabric is tested and covers the requirements of class 1 and class 2. The higher class is recommended for textile products for kids. Read more info here
Visual Effects - Depending on your needs and label design, you can choose between gloss satin or satin with matte finish. With regards to the shades, you can choose between white or satin with no optical brighteners. If you require a print on both sides, the most suitable solution would be double face satin, which is available with woven edges as well. The coating of the satin material adds additional strength to the material, which means it doesn’t fray when cut even with ordinary scissors.
