We don't offer label removal or woven labels. However, we appreciate as a brand you may not wish to have manufacturers labels on your products, therefore we do have a few options that may be suitable. You'll find them among other handy tips in our quick guide below.
If woven labels are essential we'd suggest buying your products and decoration with us and using a relabelling company, so you can ensure you comply with the legal requirements associated with relabelling. You can read more on this here.
Studies show branded woven labels in your products do NOT increase sales. The only benefit is brand awareness. If an existing customer wants to buy another t-shirt from you they don’t have to remember your name by heart - they can see it on the product.
Unless you’re an established global brand (eg. Nike), woven labels are not essential. On smaller orders they’re costly, and bring unnecessary complexity, especially when it comes to legal requirements (read more about this here).
There are a few effective ways to get the same results without the price tag or complexity of relabelling.
Tear Out Tags
We suggest purchasing garments with ‘Tear Out Tags’, and then simply print your logo on the outside of the nape (nape = back of neck). You can then tear out the manufacturers neck label by hand.
Why the outside you ask?! Here’s 3 reasons why:
- You can print on the outside of almost any product - ensuring consistency. You can’t print on the inside of products like sweatshirts.
- Your customer can see where they got their t-shirt, and so can anyone who sees them (double win!)
- It’s cheaper and has no minimum order (if via our online shop).
The real question is, why does anyone put their branding on the inside where no one can see it?!?!
The second alternative is to buy products you’re proud of, and then you don’t need to worry tear out tags.
Our Neutral® Fairtrade Product range is great for this. Many brands take pride in the Neutral® branding printed in the neck; as this shows that they’re working with one of the best and most certified manufacturers in the world. A great example of this can be found here, where our client used transparency to her advantage, leading to her products being stocked in luxury retailer Selfridges, among others.
Supply chain transparency is ever increasing, make yours transparent, save money, and most importantly put your logo where people will see it!
Neutral® Fairtrade Organic Products
These products have printed labels in the neck that you can be proud of - showing you’re supply chain is one of the best globally, without question.
Where to get relabelling & Labels.
We recommend using a pre-retail garment processing company for your relabelling, and a garment label supplier for the woven labels themselves. In buying direct rather than via a print company you’ll make savings and get a better end product that complies with retail legal standards.
