Here's a shot of how we print the size tag in our line(s) of shirts. Once set up, we do not have to reposition the screen, just remove and tape over the next size needed. It's really sped things up at our shop.



The finished print....

i think screening transfers and heat pressing them is would be the easiest way to do this. You can gang a screen with a ton of tags, print them till your heart is content, and then just pull them out of storage when needed. no need to turn the shirt inside out, no need to setup after that. Plus the image will have a nice finish because its heat pressed on AND you don't really run the risk of wet ink pushing through the tshirt and being visible on the back of the shirt.

We tried transfers. It is much slower. You have to print the transfers, cut them out, line each one up on the heat press, press for 8 seconds, etc. You can direct print without flipping the shirt inside out at 200+ per hour on a manual press. Neutral color plastisol through a 156 mesh won't show through a 4 oz shirt. I described our method on the previous page if anyone is interested.

I was at Wally World the other day and noticed a good part of the Ladies shirts had the entire tag printed on the inside. I was wondering how to go about this wihtout bleeding through. I can print with waterbased black and have very few show through if I am careful. I would just be worried about adding yet another thing for this newbie (me) to have go wrong.

Maybe thicken the ink up a bit before printing tags would help? Adding black to the Matsui White would give me a nice dark grey and still be thick enough to not bleed through? A 200-230 screen mesh to lower the amount of ink?

This sounds like fun, now I need to design a label. Among other things.

On a side note, do you put the label in all the shirts you print for other customers, or only for your designs?

I know alot of those tags look screen printed but after doing alot of research I think most of those tagless prints are done using a pad printer.

I think you're right. That is most likely how they do it.

I recently setup pallets to do two at a time. I used 155 screens,canvas 3001 shirts . It took 2 people two hours including setup on a manual press to print 4 cases. I found pulling the ink towards the neck line worked best. None of the tags bleed through. Worked great!

Finally got around to playing with the heat transfer stuff I ordered last year. Here are some pictures.

Transfer Express now does custom neck lables. I believe 30 to a page. There is a minimum of course.

I just met a client that wants the neck labels removed. He showed me a shirt he had done and he said his last printer completely removed the label and burned the outer part to seal it back up. Anyone ever done this?

If you're worried about black ink showing through on a white shirt with regards to the label. What about laying down a white layer first, then doing black on top of the white? It would be more steps, but I figure that should help prevent the black bleeding through?
