Where are you getting your shirts from? From some earlier research, I know someone at Royal Apparel told me that they have a minimum of 60 shirts for relabeling.

I've got a company in my state that relabels my shirts with no minimums. I have my shirts shipped there, they relabel them, then give a break on the shipping to me.

I get my labels sewn in where the other label was, which costs me $.35 per label. No minimums.

Anymore questions, just ask.

p.s.
They are GREAT to work with!

Also, we've been trying to find a local place to do it for us, and that's been a pain. My wife called a few places today (20) and all but 2 said they couldn't do. Of the 2 that did, one said they would need to see the shirts and labels to give an accurate quote (my wife's on the way there now!) and the other said it would cost $3 per shirt! (must be on some moonshine or something!)

Interesting thread. Thanks for all the info. As I know nothing at all about sewing label process, let me ask what might be a dumb question. Does the company that sews the labels in remove the old labels? Or, when you buy the blank shirts in quantity from whomever (Alternative Apparel, Gildan, etc.), do they supply the shirts without labels? How does that work?

No dumb questions!

Right now I get ProClub shirts. They come with a single woven label. The company that I use takes the old ProClub label out, and replaces it with my woven label.

I know some companies will put labels in for you, if you supply them with the labels. Most of them have pretty large minimums for this (1,000), but there are some that have fewer minimums. I think Royal Apparel has a minimum of 60 and they will put your label in instead of theirs. I'll have to check that though.

Make Your Own!!

The great thing about labels is, you can make your own!

Simply choose a thin fabric that washes well, like a twill or a fine woven fabric. Print some heat transfers with a laser printer or inkjet, cut out...
