Re-labelling garments for promotions and corporate clothing

Aspect provide garment re-labelling services

We can add a custom manufactured garment label to give your garments a retail look to your corporate clothing.

Most wholesale garments come with a branded neck label attached. We can remove these labels and sew-on your own branded label. There are many options for adding labels; here are some of the most popular options. Some manufacturers supply their garments with an unbranded size/wash care label so it does not need removing, enabling us to sew-on your new label over it.

Neck and sleeve re-labelling on a t-shirt

Add this extra finish to your garments to make them look like a retail item. We can completely remove the branded label and sew-in your new label, either cutting-out or un-picking the manufacturers’ label.

We don’t manufacture garment labels ourselves but work with a couple of UK based companies that make high quality labels in various formats: cut single, loop fold, Manhattan fold, each end fold and tax tabs. For more information on the label types please download our PDF guide.PDF PDF to label formats.

In addition we can supply and fit zip pulls. These are usually fitted to the zips pulls of fleece and jacket zips and also backpack and holdalls, replacing the original zip pulls provided by the garment manufacturer. There are two versions, flat and filled. The filled version is puffed-out with wadding.

To add something special to a garment or baseball hat or bag we can sew-on a specially created patch or rubber badge.

Swing tag attachment, also known as Kimball tagging is another method to increase the finished look and perceived value of your garments as shown in the picture below.

We first started re-labelling over 25 years ago. A customer asked us if we could re-label their souvenir t-shirts being sold at London tourist attractions. We had no idea what was involved but decided to give it a go. We bought a Singer 3105 sewing machine (see picture below) and asked our staff if anyone had any experience with a sewing machine. That first job went well and we were given more t-shirts to re-label. From then we started to market the service and soon became the largest re-labelling company in the country. We bought a Brother Exedra automatic sewing machine and started training staff to operate it. We added more and more Brother machines and bought 2 Mitsubishi computerised patch labelling machine to increase the speed of service.
