Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

Thanks for the info about the seam ripper (definately will check into that). Yesterday, after responding on the different brands of shirts, I decided to order several samples to try out including Hanes, Jerzees, Champion, FOL, Gildan, and a couple others. I am going to do kind of a "blind" study amoong my friends and family. I will tape over the label and get about 20 different people to tell me which ones they prefer. I have always gone with Gildan before, because personally I like their fit and quality. But I know there are several others out there in the same price range that I need to check out as well. I'll let you know how it turns out.

May be they can do you a few dozen this way......
My manufacturer has prepared-for-dye and garment washed white tees only. They have stock items, all in white, so I can get them easily. The catch is that to sew labels in, they require an order of 20 dozen...I just did order 20 dozen baby tees, but didn't plan for the women's tees at the same time...Next time....In any case, I just ordered samples from another company and found a local relabler.

However, I'm also going to get to the library to look up screenprinting books...Thanks for the words on screenprinting.

I see a lot of tagless tees now. Most of my new tees are tagless, at least the white ones. What is the print made of? It looks like tape of some sort.

Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

I have always just screen printed using a $200 toy screen print kit, since its just 1 colour and so easy, or once in a while on big orders i get plastisol transfers. I store them away for when i need them.

I personally hate tags of any kind and have never used them, i just write in all the info/care instructions in the screen print. Sometimes they are even up to a3 size big, who cares it is on the inside

Take care

Its a Japanese screen printing kit made for kids, called the Print Gocco, it is quite fun actually. It uses special screens which when flashed bond to the carbon in a lazer printed or photocopied peice of paper. You make the screens in like 10 seconds, tape them to a plastic frame and then just contact print. It comes with eveything you need to make a few a3 sized screens, you can of course buy more for it.

Just look it up online, i got mine from the local art store.

And you use this small screen print for tags only? I would also like one. Do you take the tags out of the tees and then print them?

a3 is like a european style of measurement. Like here in the US we have standard paper sizes like 8 1/2 x 11 or 11x17 or legal (8 1/2 x 14), over there they have sizes like a3, a4, etc

By "over there" you mean EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD

Also, I am extremely pro Gocco.

Go to www.nehoc.com.au

They ship internationally. They stuff in the US is all 1980's cardboard crap, to be frank. The new stuff (avaliable at nehoc and Japan), is years beyond it. It is a superb system. With the new stuff, you can easily get pro-screenprint quality, with none of the mess or stick of real screenprint (or cost).

At one point we even considered it an option to replace our screenprinting on one spot-colours (although it isn't good at the volumes we're now into dealing with...but great for tiny runs with screenprint quality)

But (and this is a big but), it has been discontiuned. Current supplies will only last another handful of years. So not really great to build a business model around it.

(PS, as Zac is in Oz, I'm guessing he has the good stuff too, not the US stuff)

It's actually not a toy, and it's not made for kids. It was originally made for adults to make greeting cards with. It does also make a good kids' toy, but that's not all it is.

Not necessarily, since production has been discontinued. There's hope that someone else will get the rights to produce consumables for the machine, but as far as I know there hasn't been anything really said about that yet.

Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

Haha yeah the funky colours and simplicity made me think it was aimed more at kids.

I got mine from nehoc, as monkeylantern mentioned. I see heaps of consumables around, but as they are template tags, i made like 4 or 5 and that's all i need. So yuh its cool.

There are so many ways to do lablels, why not hit ebay and grab a single arm screen print jog, get a few screens made and just screen the tag info.

So easy, might cost not much more than the print gocco. I think there is a single arm jig going for around $100 USD from the same place all the time on ebay.

Take care

Tagless labels are very popular right now and something that I have enormous experience in.

You would be surprised at how many clothing companies are using tagless heat transfer labels
