The benefit is that set up charges are less and if you "Gang" like item on one sheet your cost goes way down. Attached are examples in .jpg & .gif of a gang sheet of 3/4" labels. On a 12" x 12" sheet you cna get 144 each of these labels. You can make some rows for small, medium, large, X large, 2X etc to fill up the sheet.

From one source the price for 250/36,000 labels sheets in one color would cost $0.58 per sheet = $145.00 plus a $15.00 set up then shipping. Lets round that off to $180.00 total. This would make your individual label cost a low $.005 each. I do not know what your costs for screen printing these labels is but would figure that it is a bit more than this.

The more sheets you order the lower the cost, i.e. 500 sheets would be $0.43 each with a per label cost of $0.0034 adding an additional $30.00 for setup/shipping.

Additional savings can be realized with some companies as they do not charge set up fees if you are able to do your own artwork that they do not have to redo.

Not pushing you this way but trying to give you the information.
Bob, in your image you are still showing each label having S M L XL printed on them.

But the great advantage of ganging images for transfers is you can have the normal one size for each label.

For example let's say you gang 10 labels to a page. And 10% of your normal business is in Smalls, 40% Medium, 20% Large and 30% XL. Well then each of your gang sheet will have 1 Small label, 4 Medium labels, 2 large, and 3 XL.

Chase, stay away from circling sizes on a label with a sharpie. It's tacky.

splathead, ya man, thats why I posted this up. I even experimented with classing it up and using a nice fabric marker and it still looked weak. Do you guys have any reference sites that could maybe walk me through the process of these heat transfers? It seems as though it may be a pretty nice cost effective option.

Ive just recently set a label screen up for myself and this is how I ganged them,

see attached pic

I had each size put on one screen and rotated them on each edge so all i had to do was rotate the screen and tape off the ones I wasnt using. I just used brown packing tape and this held fine.

I also made a smaller squeege and this worked fine.

jimmy, thanks for the visual on thought. I am going to recommend this to my printer and see what he says. Did you not have to print any 2xl's? I am wondering where 2xl might go on the gang sheet.

You could always just put it next to one of the others and just slide the screen along when you need it.

Great thread ! I like the taping the different sizes idea.

I am quoting a customer 50,000-100,000 tees with printed neck labels. Does anyone have an idea what kind of price range would be reasonable for this size order on an automatic machine ?

Pad printing should be the cheapest.....Are your shirts made in USA or offshore?...

Thanks for the video. That is awesome ! I was not familiar with pad printing. I will definitely look more into it.

I print all the sizes with a little blank box outline underneath each size

print them all and then smear a dot of ink into the size box with a match pressing it into the shirt - i use waterbased.

once cured the size is easy to see since it is the one with the mark in the box

hope this makes sense
