Labeling Rules for Clothing Are Frequently in Flux
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is wrapping up in New York City, elevating clothes and designers in the public consciousness. Up-and-coming fashion designers and textile manufacturers look to the looks presented there for inspiration and wisdom. However, there is one thing that unites all apparel creators; the need for clothing labels. It’s a practical and often-overlooked step of the fabrication process; after all, custom woven labels say a lot about a brand. Imaging is everything and the tag is another way for the company to express theirs. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. has been creating beautifully-rendered printed fabric and woven clothing labels since 1989. The company understands that, for image-conscious fashion brands, only a vibrant and accurate clothing label will do. This is why Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. uses only the most cutting-edge machinery to produce their printed fabric and woven labels; the team there can accommodate practically any request. Most of the time, clients simply send Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling a digital image and the printing company gets right to work.
Fabric labels don’t just need to be attractive; they’re legally required to be informative. In America, many agencies standardize what must go on clothing tags, including the Federal Trade Commission and the US Customs and Border Protection agency. These agencies base their operations on guidelines set by the Care Labeling Rule, the Textile Fiber Products Identification Act, the Wool Products Labeling Act, and similar regulations. These rules state that fabric labels must be in English and permanently attached and state material content, country of origin, care instructions, importer, and more (though there are exceptions). The friendly salespeople at Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. not only knows what needs to be put on a fashion label, they also know how to make it all fit attractively. From the most straightforward job (perhaps a law label for a mattress or a warning on blinds with strings) to tasks that require a more aesthetically pleasing touch (like clothing tags for Monster energy drink’s shirts or the tag in a fashion label’s first collection), Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. enjoys any opportunity to push themselves and to show off their world-class rendering and artistic abilities.
Plus, everybody at Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. is so helpful and knowledgeable that customers can simply call them and ask for help on navigating legal requirements for fabric labels. The Federal Trade Commission is currently reviewing its guidelines and, depending on where a clothing company wants to sell their fashions, international regulations may also apply. Luckily, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. keeps up to date on all of these developments. With Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc., clothing manufacturers don’t have to worry about the law requirements for tags because the company will have their best interests in mind. All they will have to worry about is the appearance of their clothing labels, which are incredibly beautiful when made by Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling Inc. Printed fabric labels can be created in up to 8 colors on a huge selection of materials, including but not limited to natural cotton twill, polyester, Tyvek, and satin. Hi-Tech Printed & Labeling Inc. also uses modern UV and lamination machines for hang tags and flexographic printing for other printing needs. Examples of all of their labels and tags can be seen on their website at www.fabriclabels.com. Interested customers can call (213) 228-0001 or (800) 490-0405.
