Default How to re-tag when shirt is tag less like Hanes Beefy T?

How do you tag a shirt like Hanes Beefy T when the tag is pressed on the neck of the shirt already? I have a heat press, can you just press new tag over the one already there?
Thanks

Don't buy Hanes Tagless. Seriously though. If you are labeling you need to buy shirts with tear out tags or have them cut out and re-sewn. If you print over or transfer it will possible show through and that would look unprofessional. We use tear out tags from a variety of vendors and screen print our own labels or our clients custom label.

Not many. Beefys are 6.1 oz. Most shirts today are being made with a lighter cotton. most ring spuns are 4.0 to 4.5 oz. AAA 1701R is a ring spun 5.5 tear out tag.

If your shop has a acetone gun just hit the tags from the back side with the acetone and the Hanes label will come right off

That would be great for a few shirts but to do that to up to 1000 shirts or more... I don't think so. Nice tip though.

Not as heavy. We haven't used them for awhile and I know they have changed their production so I would recommend getting a sample and see if it's up to your standards.

I have seen these but never used them. What do you think Narf? And thanks for the link.

I haven't had any hands-on myself either; I was going from the knowledge posted here, that they'll fit the criteria for the OP, and that there aren't many choices in the heavy-weight class that are ringspun.

Another option for the Beefy T's is to use a 2 color plastisol transfer label to cover up their tagless. One color is a solid background and the 2nd color is your logo/care instructions.

Personally, I would boycott Hanes and find another shirt. The Beefy was arguably the #1 selling tee for private labels brands & screenprinters. Them going tagless indicates to me they chose to abandon us and go direct to the consumer.

I agree with you splathead. I used beefy's for years but their cost and now the tag thing pretty much puts them out of my market. Fortunately the market is trending towards the lighter weight shirts that are all readily available in most brands. But you have to be careful because there are a lot out there that want to compete and they do so with an inferior product. Do you have a brand of choice splathead?

Agreed. After wearing mid weight shirts the Beefy and other 6+ oz shirts seems like you're wearing an overcoat.

My brand of choice is American Apparel. A good alternative, at half the cost, is the Anvil 980.

i guess I assumed we where talking low quantity as imprints wholesale will re-tag shirts at $0.10 a shirt for orders over 250, I personally like the Gildan 6400 line i use it exclusively on one of my websites and always get positive feed back from my customers about how soft and professional the shirts are

Glad to read that there are some lower cost alternatives to the American Apparel shirts.. I love the feel of them but the price is a little steep! I'll have to try out the Gildan 6400 and Anvil 980 to see how they measure up.

Yep, pretty much. Still ridiculous for them to throw away the extra business that would've still gone their way if they had left the tags (that we could readily remove) alone.

There are quite a few alternatives to the AA 2001 these days, but they all differ in their own ways. FWIW, I'm not a fan of 980's - the collars don't hold up and even line dried they shrink more than my dryer-dried 2001's. If I had to go with a lower cost alternative, my nod goes to Next Level Apparel's 3600.
