Heat Transfer labels, also known as “tag-less tags”, are a great option for customers who want to brand their clothing without the bulk of a woven or printed label.
The heat transfer tags use flexographic ink and are Pantone color matched. They are silk screened onto a clear velum backing and come pre-cut and ready to apply. Heat transfer labels are best on sporty t-shirts, athletic wear or baby items like newborn bodysuits. The heat transfers are easy to apply using a regular household iron or an industrial heat press (recommended for best results).
You can print up to four colors for heat transfer labels on simple designs. We can also source full-color heat transfer printing- ask a sales rep for more information.
The heat transfers are very high quality and stand up through dozens of washes without fading or chipping away.
Some people worry about their customers cutting their brand labels out of the garment; with heat transfers, your branding stays for dozens and dozens of washes and no one can rip them out! In addition, we have many customers using heat transfer labels as graphics on their clothing or products.
If you are making baby clothes, especially for newborns, soft woven or printed labels could work very well and are often used. But, if you are really concerned about a label rubbing against an infant’s skin, then a heat transfer label is best.
If you really like the look of a woven label, you can put a heat transfer in the neck area and woven label on the outside trim.
For athletic gear or workout clothes, a woven label could potentially irritate someone’s skin during a lot of activity. Heat transfer labels would eliminate this problem and are very popular with athletic gear manufacturing.
