Hey,
Since Gildens labels are attached, alot of my customers use their woven labels and I cut the Gilden name off and still use the care and content with the size on it with their label. When it's sewn in no one can tell that they didn't have their own care and content label made. It saves them alot of money in the end and their happy with that.

Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

I'm about to launch a new brand and I want the shirt relabeled.

I have a vendor, who isn't good at returning my calls, located in So. CA that says they can open the seam, remove the label and insert mine.

I would like to find a vendor closer to home in the Seattle area. Anyone know of one. Or, barring one closer to home, how about one that returns my phone calls.

Also, for those of you that seem to have experience in ordering shirts from a manufacturer with our label already sewn in, what kind of minimum do you usually see (I saw one person say 20 dozen) and what manufacturers do this?

Thanks

Depends on your brand and your preferences. I prefer a woven label, but others prefer a tagless print.

It's much of a muchness most of the time, but if you drive them both down to their bottom cost a printed tag will most likely be cheaper.

There are some kicking around the forum somewhere. Threadless have done their shirts that way from almost the beginning (try a Google images search maybe). Any retail store that sells t-shirts will have some that are done this way.

cost for tag was about $.45usd....cost to relabel per shirt was $.30 so $.75 per shirt...

screenprint was $.85 per shirt

figure that out

Yeah this is where it gets tricky. My screen printer will print my inside label / caretag AND remove the existing Gildan's for a whopping .50 cents! Great! But it's FOUR different screens; they all have the exact same information but one for S, M, L, XL. It's $20 setup PER SCREEN. So it's prohibitively expensive until you do a lot. If I do 4 dozen. It's 50 cents each, PLUS $80 in setups divided by 48 shirts. It ends up being $2.16/shirt! Dealbreaker. But if I wait and do say 250 shirts at a time it works out to .82/shirt.

My business is only big enough right now that I print 4-8 dozen of any 1 shirt at a time. That's NOT enough for the inside label. So I end up shipping some out not branded as I would like. When I have about 250 or so, I bring them BACK to my screener and have them all relabeled. Not the best solution, but I don't know what else to do. There's no cheap solution I can find for relabeling when doing less than 250 or so shirts.

...the other argument is I should just focus on growing my business, until I'm never having less than 250 shirts printed at one time. Then it's a non-issue.

Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

man, am i glad i found this thread again. good info...that i need! i'll keep checking back on this one. i too am struggling w/the screen printed label and an actual tag. initially, i wanted to do the printed version. but, after seeing lady umbrella's label...I LOVE IT! and i've been researching tags all day. keeping in mind that the tag has to be comfy. that's the whole reason for the tagless trend. i think lady umbrella's tag looks a little silky/smooth. i would be most interested in that type or that faux suede look/feel.

thanks again guys for the info.

Default Re: Labels (tag or tagless)

i used to be crazy about gildan shirts. primarily because i liked the weight/thickness. initially, they have a good finished look. but, after a while they start to get a rough feel and look worn. i have tons of 'em...'cause they looked so good @ first when i was on the retail end. but, after the 1st year of washings...i'm not as big a fan. now, i think i would only use 'em for my low-end customers. (18-24 ages range) they are the ones that have limited budgets...but, still want to look good until the next trend rolls around. my older customers want quality, creativity & and something that's going to last a few years...and they are willing to pay a little more for it. oh, & did i mention they appreciate quality and the attention to detail???!!!

The DC shirt I'm wearing is tagless and the express shirt I wore yesterday was tagless.

I'd like to do my tagless also, but I'm weighing the costs.

You may prefer to outsource these kind of jobs, but if not that is another option.

I was wondering when someone would suggest this cause this is the option I want to do - personally I dont like tags(too itchy even with the modern ones)
I have been checking on the required info before I design it.
Thanks everyone for the posts

I prefer tagless labels screen printed on the shirt. I don't like how tags can be itchy and bothersome. There are screen printers that offer tag removal and tag printing services. Just do some research and you'll find them...good luck!

[QUOTE=T-BOT;27057]
Here in Canada, i think the minimum allowed gov-law for content label durability is something like 5 washes. With a Brand we do work for that uses Gildan shirts, they re-label the shirts with paper-type labels that are within gov-regulation.

I see that this is a super old thread but I wanted to say thanks for all the great info you provide in the forums and add for us brand noobs that the Textile labeling act in Canada requires that the "disclosure label" be applied in a "permanent" fashion.

The standards outlined for "permanent" require the label be legible after 10 washes. 10 Dry cleans are mentioned.

All in all, a little unclear, but its 10 washes in Canada. Eh.
