Just wondering the pros and cons of tagless or tees with custom tags and what people prefer.

Obviously a tagless tee where the tag info is just printed on the inside of the color could be more comfortable. But from a branding perspective don't tags that are just printed on the inside of the collar wear off and fade easier than a tag that is sewn into the collar.

Just curious what people think about this. I haven't decided yet myself whether to go with tagless or tags.

Tagless can last as long as the design on the front of the shirt if you are silkscreening them.

Choice between the two is really a personal preference.

If you do your own silkscreening, tagless labels are less expensive to do.

I've had some problems with the tagless tees. On the ones I have in my closet, about half of them have rubbed off to the point where you can't read them. I think that area gets a lot more friction than the print on the front of the shirt would.

I'd say just thoroughly test them before you use them. :)

I've notice the same thing, but mainly with older tees that I've had since the 90s. But I've noticed a bunch of undershirt makers like Tommy Hilfiger are jumping on this tagless t shirt bandwagon now and I guess I was wondering if there are newer methods now that is making the tagless print more durable. But, if it's just going to rub off in a year or two I'll probably want to go with a tag.

Wouldn't discharge show through to the other side of the shirt?
Depends on the mesh you use. If you use a finer mesh screen the layer is very light. In some instances you'll see it like if it is a white shirt with black ink but this is where an experienced SP comes in handy!
