| | Best way to relabel? New sewn-in tags, screenprint, other?
Hoping for some advice/thoughts on best way to relabel. I've been reading the threads, and going around and around, and still not sure how to proceed.
My brand (or brand-to-be) is all about organic, made in USA, etc, and I've found some Ts I really like that fit well with my branding. I will be dyeing some of the Ts into custom colors but will not be screen printing on the front or back. In the future, I hope to make my own shirts.
The single existing label is a sewn into the collar (not tear-away) with all the required information. I have been talking to local contractors about cutting out and sewing in new labels. My big concern is that the new sewn-in labels won't match - either with the original stitching or the fabric color - and the final product won't look good or professional. I worry that people will be able to tell that the label has been changed. When the original label is cut out, some of the label is still under the seam but not too noticeable. You'd really have to rip out the seam to take out the entire label.
It seems to me, as a newbie, that screenprinting the new label could avoid the issues of sewing in a new label. (I don't have screenprinting experience, so would be outsourcing).
So, thoughts on best option for relabeling this type of T?
