Over the years tagless labels have increased in popularly and are now used on a wide variety of items including high priced designer garments, leather and even delicate fabrics. Aside from the many marketing advantages tagless labels offer the manufacturer the primary reason their market share has increased is simple: consumers prefer tagless labels. They are comfortable and never itch.
All our tagless labels are produced in the United States for quick turn around, and many label materials for in plant printing are in stock for immediate delivery. Some printed labels can be shipped within a few days and even custom woven labels from our overseas plants can be delivered within 2 weeks.
Stock Apparel Labels, Tags and Stickers
The apparel industry has many stock tags that are unique. These include “inspected by” and “size stickers” as well as defect stickers, folding pin tickets and woven size labels. Because so many manufactures need small quantities of each of these items they are stocked and available for immediate delivery.
Military and Uniform confirming labels
Texpak has many customers who manufacture military apparel and uniforms for police and fire departments. These garments require labels that are fire resistant, fire retardant and/or can withstand multiple washes with maximum colorfastness. We work with our customers to assure them that they are getting labels that can pass the AATCC, DDD-L-20F and MIL-DTL-32075 wash requirements. We do this work so you don’t have to! Our vast experience with these types of labels make Texpak the ideal partner to work with in finding the right label for your military or uniform needs.
Woven Labels can be finished in various ways depending on your requirements. They can be end folded (folded on both ends), center folded (looped), miter folded (hooked label), or finished on all sides. We weave all standard materials such as taffeta, twill, damask and satin. The label ends can be sonically cut to prevent unraveling. Manufacturers that have recently switched to Texpak tell us that our quality and prices can’t be beat. If you have a label that you are planning to reorder, send us samples and we will have you a quote within a few days. If you are designing a new label we can help you and even get you woven samples that will show you exactly what your label will look like. On all woven labels we offer two week delivery.
shade marking Labels
Texpak remains the leading distributor of Checkpoint®/Meto shade marking tools, labels and ink rollers in the Western Hemisphere. This system eliminates the need to move material to a central location. Instead the labeler is brought to the material for a time and cost-efficient system. Meto® is the inventor of hand held shade marking and is the established leader in this field. We have been supplying the apparel industry with Meto® shade marking equipment for over 20 years and has the knowledge to recommend the correct tool and adhesive for every application. We stock a complete line of labels from styles with extremely aggressive adhesives designed to hold on slippery or coated materials to extremely light adhesives for delicate fabrics. Since the shade marking label goes directly on the garment, it is extremely important to choose the correct adhesive.
