Default screen printing neck labels on the inside of the t-shirt?

I've purchased a few t-shirts from ThreadLess.com and one thing I've noticed is that they have custom neck labels screen printed on the inside on the t-shirt.

I wonder, is this hard to acheive? It seems like an awkward print location to reach.

If it's not hard to do, this might be a solution for the many people that are looking to get custom neck labels on their new t-shirt line. By having the printer print them in while they print their designs, all the person would have to worry about is removing all the default manufacturer labels or finding a manufacturer that doesn't put neck labels in their tees.

I have pre-made labels that I heat press on after printed. They're not terribly flashy but they do the intended job, which is to remind people where they got their tee printed from. I'm on the lookout for other solutions, but the one I have is quick and simple and very inexpensive.

Looks like a pretty nice service. Thanks for the link, Adam!

It's in the UK, so shipping might be a bit much for me in the US, but at least I have a starting point.

About once a day I have a genius idea... this one came to me around 12:15 as I read this post. Why not very carefully remove the existing tag and screenprint your own logo on the inside of the shirt below the neckline... ala hanes tagless. You muthas can have that idea for free.

Hehe, great minds must think alike. That's exactly what my first post was about

That's how threadless.com prints their labels in the neckline.

Sorry Rodney seems I got the wrong end of the thread It's definately not a difficult place to reach with a heatpress.. you just pull back the neck a little, and sit the tee on the corner of the platern and press away. This is what I do with some on my t-shirts using a transparent digital heat transfer.

Sorry Rodney... did not catch that... guess genius ideas are not always original. I think we are going to start doing this in our shirts.

Default Re: screen printing neck labels on the inside of the t-shirt?

In the AA-shirts there are 2 labels in the neck: the AA-label and the washinglabel. If you want to print your companyname inside in the neck, you'll have to remove them both. But then you have a shirt without washinglabel. Is there a solution for this, you think?
And then there is the problem of removing the label in the neck. I think it will always be seen, and that gives an unprofessional impact.

Couldn't you just turn the shirt inside out and print as normal? Same goes for screen-printing the same area...

(sorry this is a bit of an old thread, but I figured it had re-surfaced anyway, so...)

Just don't go printing on the collar, I'd just like to see this practice abolished from all peoples thoughts and put back in it's that's not an option bin, cause even if one person does it, it spoils it for everybody. ramble ramble

Turning the shirt inside out is the best way to print the label. You can gang alot of labels on one transfer making it very cost effective.

Default Re: screen printing neck labels on the inside of the t-shirt?

I've been asking around to friends and almost everyone I've spoken to says they love the printed label as opposed to the physical tag. The two most oft-cited reasons are a cleaner looking fit and no tag to irritate the back of the neck. I previously thought a tag would connote a higher quality product but no one seems to think so (at least not consciously, when asked). And, in fact, Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and other companies seem to be adopting it.

Anyone have any thoughts on this percieved quality question? Also, I've seen it mentioned briefly in other threads that removing labels is more difficult than replacing labels. Is that a serious consideration if I screen print my labels?

I'm pretty sure Threadless has the labels heat pressed on the neck line.

Why spend the money on embroidered tags, just to have some people cut them off? Heat press 'em on.

I've been noticing the latter a lot more lately. I've started ripping more tags out of the neckline because they irritate.

I don't think it ever represented higher quality to the average end customer. I think big t-shirt companies did it for branding and smaller startup companies did it to make it seem like they were big t-shirt companies (in the hopes of being picked up by retailers and for branding).

As far as the end, paying customer goes, I don't think they could care one bit about a t-shirt having a custom neck label. It's just not a selling point. Especially online when a customer will never see or know about the neck label when they are buying the t-shirt.

If you're going for the "clean" look, then you would have to remove the existing label in order to screen print your label there.

What I wonder though is if screen printing a label would be more expensive than sewing a label on (if your are outsourcing it all).
