Default Re: Re label Laws?

From what i gathered from the above website it is a must to have tags--

permanently attached to articles
written in English
legible
appropriate and adequate for the care of the article and
accessible to the consumer at point-of-sale.

Adequate care instructions must include information on the general care and warnings, including washing, drying*, ironing* and dry-cleaning instructions.

as you can see the label may fit into one of the below segments been an apparel it would fit into section 1!

Care Instructions

Tables 1, 2 and 3 of AS/NZS 1957:1998 contain instructions to be used on the care label. Each Table contains care instructions specific to a particular article classification.

Table 1. Made-up articles, apparel, household textiles, piece goods and yarns.

Table 2. Upholstered furniture (including leather), bedding and other furnishings.

Table 3. Leather and fur apparel (including sheep skin).

So from the above info i gather the t-shirt should have relevant washing and care instruction and it basically as simple as that....or is it more complex?

Maybe users of the forum can post pictures of there tags to show the difference between one shirts tag to another shirts tag...

Discuss--

I asked the same question and was told by a supplier, by law the care instructions must be shown and also the place where the garment was made in.

Also what is the best way of doing this?

I was thinking of screen printing the instructions on the back (inside of shirt) below where the tag usually is. Or even heat pressing it on. Btut I reckon screen printing it will be far easier and inexpensive.

Yes, you are able to do that (relabel continental with your own brand). That's what they are made for

I just thought I would add. Many TAFE and Uni's have access to Standards Australia and if your a current enrolled student you can generally get access to the SA database. Well, at least thats what I do through Swinburne!

Hi all,

I have read through those attached articles and got some great info from them so thanks for those. I am just unclear about whether or not you can use the care symbols instead of words on the care instruction labels or do you have to include both the wording and the symbols together? Can anyone clear this up for me?

Cheers

I went thru numerous ideas to do my tags and decided on a iron on label with my own details.
I found a guy in china that does them on ebay and had 700 made up 100 of each size I sell for about $200AUS. This way when I am heat setting my inks with the heat press I do the tag at the same time which is easier for me.

I leave the original tag backing on the garment for now as I did not get all the info I need for my tag to be legal by itself which I will get next time.

If you need the guys email let me know I am happy to pass it on.

I attatched a photo of my tags to let you see his work.

Dan
