Re: Cheap Labels

They shouldn't. When I get my stuff relabeled, if I have 2 labels, my relabeling company only charges me for placing 1 label the space.

If you are working with a cut & sew, then I don't see why they would care how many labels you have in the neck. They have to sew it anyway!

Do I need two labels though? I could just put my logo and the shirt info on the same one.

If you want 2 different woven labels, then you are talking about 1 label with your logo/name and another one for your size, in EACH size.

Or you can have 1 woven label in EACH size.

OR, you can have 1 woven label with your logo/name and a printed label with care instructions and sizing info. This is MUCH cheaper.

OR you can have 1 woven label with your logo/name AND care instructions and add a size tab! MUCH, MUCH CHEAPER!

I see, or I can just have 1 woven label with your logo/name AND care instructions and put a size sticker on the shirt (or is that too cheapy) http://www.scottscodistributing.com...?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=P&Product_Code=SAMCSL

I think just a size sticker is kind of cheap. Once the customer removes the sticker, it would be nice if there was still a place that had the size!

A size tab can be sewn in under your woven label, and like I said before, I don't think it should cost you any extra.

Do you think I even need to go with a woven label? I'm selling them wholesale to T-shirt printers, would they rather woven labels or a cheaper price on the shirt? Where do I buy size tabs?

You can get size tabs AND printed labels from the company that I linked to earlier:

This just depends. If you are selling blanks to people that are going to use them to print on customers shirts, I say a printed label would do just fine!

I think Greg pretty much covered it :) I'd agree with all of the above.

Generally I prefer a woven label, but I imagine the printers would rather save the money. It can definitely add up to a lot, and wholesale blanks don't exactly have the best margins.

(put it this way: Alternative Apparel use woven labels. American Apparel, Gildan, Fruit of the Loom, Hanes, Port & Co., Jerico, and Anvil all use printed labels. Anvil labels are particularly cheap and nasty.)

The printed labels look kinda cool on darker shirts, par example, I saw a black tee with a white label printed inside it. How long do those labels usually last. The ones on my Hanes under-tees haven't faded thru four to five washes (I know, I'm lazy).

*facepalm* Geez... I haven't personally done any label stuff, and until just now I thought every time people were referring to 'printed' labels, they meant in the back of the shirt (and thus, tagless)!

Oi. Well, in my defense, I'm certain that the back-of-shirt labeling was referred to as 'printed labels' at least a few times; does this method go by any other name?

Most of the time they probably are :)

As Greg said, tagless is relatively unambiguous. I don't tend to refer to it as that though, as I still think of the printed label as a tag (which I guess it isn't really).

At any rate, you generally just need to guess from context.

Bingo...You can usually get the size tabs in packs of 1000 for around 10-12 bucks.
