Woven and Washable
LABEL TYPES FOR WOVEN & WASHABLE FOR GARMENTS & TEXTILES FROM SUPPLYLINE ID
Our woven labels can be manufactured with polyester, satin and nylon, fully printed with your own submitted designs, like a logo with corresponding information, or they can be delivered plain for use on your own thermal printer, should you require variable data to be printed on the labels.
Most of our care labels are designed to be used with Armor AXR TX Textile printing ribbons, but other materials are compatible with other printing types such as hot stamping, impact, flexographic, letterpress, silk screening and offset.
Labels used for the clothing industry come in many forms from pricing or promotional labels on an item, mark down labels to printed tags with eyelet holes or even wash care labels. All of our labels and tags can be produced plain for overprinting or fully pre-printed to your specifications.
Our wash-care labels can be produced with a number of well-recognised icons, as well as your company logo, instructions and whatever other information you might want to include. We can provide plain washable fabric and ribbons for you to print in house.
Textile labels are subjected to very high levels of duress throughout the life cycle of the products to which they are attached: clothing, household linen and certain automotive equipment.
Labels made of textile materials contain important information for the care of the products to which they are sewn or adhered and sometimes also for the purposes of identification and traceability. Whether for manufacture, marketing or the end user, such data must remain perfectly legible.
Textile label printing constraints
Printing for textile labels requires special inks which guarantee that the printed information is able to resist all the vagaries of the product life cycle: washing (water, detergents, softeners, abrasion), drying (high temperature, abrasion), ironing (high temperature, humidity, abrasion), dry cleaning, etc.
ARMOR ribbons for textile label printing
Thermal Transfer technology is one of the most commonly used for printing textile labels: certain Thermal Transfer printers and inked ribbons have been specially developed to meet these requirements. ARMOR Resin ribbons (AXR® ribbons) offer an excellent print sharpness for the printing of all composition symbols and small characters; a great compatibility with most nylons, cottons, acetates and polyesters; and high levels of resistance to drying, abrasion and domestic and industrial washing technologies.
Inks that resist domestic and professional washing processes
- Print fineness enabling small characters and symbols to be printed
- Compatible with numerous textile print media
