German term or phrase: Schuss
In connection with labels. As opposed to 'kleben'. 'Einnaehen' is used elsewhere, so guess that it does not have anything to do with stitching either.

Explanation:
OK, just above a guess and goes with your einkleben and einnaehen. You can rivet pockets to jeans, but you can also rivet nameplates to machines, etc.

It is a stretch, but it might be what you are looking for, especially since a "rivet gun" is used to apply the things.
