Tag Removal & Printing

Back to the top

Want to brand your shirts to make them look unique? We can easily help you with that by removing the manufacturer's sewn in tags and replacing it with a printed 1 color design on the inside of the shirt. Please note that some brands work better with Tag Removal than others. We recommend American Apparel, Anvil, & Gildan.

When doing printed tags on white shirts you run the risk of the tag showing through the back. We recommend using a light grey ink (Cool Gray 3C) when printing on white shirts to help prevent this. Note: Some garments do not de-tag well, see our Print Warnings page for more info.

ATTENTION: By law all printed tags are required to list Country of Origin and Fabric. If you are printing on multiple brands and fabrics, additional tag files will be needed. See the Federal Wool & Trade Act for more information.

Gildan 8000 & all Hanes Garments contain Heat-Pressed tags! Sorry, we cannot print tags on these garments.

Sewn Tags

Back to the top

Another great way to brand your shirts is by having your own custom tags sewn into the shirts. We can put them in the neck of the shirt (either in place of the original tag or on top of it), on the hem of the sleeve or the hem of the bottom of the shirt. Threadbird does not manufacture these tags. You will need to supply them to us. We recommend http://www.clothinglabels4u.com/

Please be sure to send extra hem tags when you provide tags for your shirts. Always allow yourself a buffer of approximately 10% when you send your tags in to account for loss, error, or manufacturer defect. (IE: If you are printing 50 shirts and you send us 50 tags, if a tag gets ripped or lost after the box is opened, you will only have tags on 49 shirts. If you send us 55 tags, that gives us additional tags to cover possible issues).
