Can anyone tell me which is the best software for Designing a clothing company Tag?

Also any preferred/standard size (if any) or special requirements for designing a tag?

  • Hi Designmate, can you tell us what part you are stuck on? Are you having trouble designing the actual design or laying out the design multiple times on a page for printing? Also asking for best software is a little too broad as this process could be done on a wide variety of programs. Also the type of tag you create will determine the size the tag needs to be. – AndrewH Sep 8 '15 at 13:59
  • Yes, actually I needed to create a tag(and doing it for the first time) and don't know what size will be fine. Also, I want to know that in designing a dress tag do we also put a bar code alongwith the sizes of the dress. Any other suggestions what all we should write on a tag designed for dress?? – Designmate Sep 8 '15 at 16:59

By the way I started it in illustrator. Also are the tags are cut off manually after printing (This part of question is not mandatory, but still any knowledge on this part will be greatly appreciated). I have searched & got a size for tag as : Max. height: 75 mm and Max. width: 165 mm. – Designmate Sep 8 '15 at 17:08

    The best software is the software you prefer and that is also compatible with what the printer needs/wants. – DA01 Sep 8 '15 at 18:07

    @Scott, DA01 : U guys have yourself answered my question firstly and now u are putting it on hold. See, I really don't know what's the way out. I am a new user in stack exchange. I thought this site to be really nice and members as helpful. But, I don't know why u guys are putting my questions on hold. Just wanted to receive and give knowledge and help in return. If u guys really want to help out then please tell me how to ask questions, as presently because of your on hold questions, I am not able to ask further questions. Before asking a question, I always check if there is an answer already – Designmate Sep 12 '15 at 5:48

Standard tag sizes

The size of the tag will depend on the type of tag you want to make, see examples Clothing Tag Design Guide. You could create any size tag that you want (if you're printing yourself). It is best to contact a printer for sizes if you're printing the tags or getting them embroidered somewhere else.

One example of a standard tag from the above link is 1.25" W x 2.5" H. This is the tag dimensions and not the working art area (I couldn't find any definitive answers for a "standard" tag size).

Putting the bar code

The bar code will most likely go on a separate tag. These tags differ in that the clothing tag is for sizes and the price tag is something that you can detach from the dress.

What to put on the tag

This is an opinion question as you could put whatever you want. I have usually seen the companies logo and the other side is washing instructions.
