Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different finishing options available?
Single Cut -- Labels are cut separately with a "cold" knife. Works with coated materials such as Tyvek, Remay, and Coated Polyester.
Single Hot Cut -- Labels are cut separately with a "hot" knife. This slightly melts the edges of the fabric, which prevents fraying. This method is used for Polyester Taffeta and Satins.
Loop Fold -- Labels are folded in the middle. Nice quality look.
End Fold -- Just like it sounds. The left and right edges of the label are folded, which provides superior holding in the garment.
On Rolls -- For sewing systems.


What color inks and foils are available?
A huge selection of colors are available. On most types of labels, we can print multiple colors on the same label. Please contact us for more information.


How do I place an order online?
First of all, you will need to decide on some basic information about your label, that will be entered into our order form. For example, we will ask you for your label's size, layout, and miscellaneous instructions such as size changes.
It may be easier to first sketch this out on a piece of paper, and then go to the order form.


What is the basic anatomy of a label?
Your label will possess some or all of these important attributes:
  • The Height of a label is its size from top to bottom.
  • The Width of a label is its size form left to right.
  • The Sew Space or Sew-In Margin is an area at the top of the label that is left blank, where the label will be attached to the garment. In Loop Fold finishing, a sew space is utilized on the top and bottom of the label.
  • The Fabric Type is the actual material of which the label is made, such as Polyester Satin, or Coated Polyester.
  • The Fabric Color is the color of the Fabric Type. Certain Fabric Colors and Ink Colors are not compatible, such as White Fabric with White Ink.
  • The Ink or Foil Colors are the colors used to print your label's content onto the fabric. Some printing methods allow for multiple colors on the same label, while others allow for only one.
  • The Logo is a custom picture or image that is placed on the label.
  • Standard Care Symbols are a set of symbols the ASTM designated for depicting care instructions on washable materials. These are often desired on a care label to supplement text instructions.

What precautions are taken to protect customer data during the online ordering process?
Our site uses a secure certificate to encrypt and protect sensitive data transmitted over the Internet during online purchases. This certificate also validates our identity to you, and guarantees that no information exchanged will be intercepted or fraudulently impersonated. Some common questions about this technology are answered below.
  • What is encryption technology?
    Encryption is the transformation of text or data into a coded form that is close to impossible to read without the key to decode the message. This scrambling of the message is done by using a mathematical formula making the message appear to be nonsense.
  • What are common uses for encryption?
    Besides e-commerce applications (such as transmission of credit card numbers, account numbers, and other sensitive information), encryption is also used by the military to guard secrets and pay-per-view television channels to only grant access to paying customers.
  • How does encryption work?
    In the most basic terms, the sender encodes the message using a mathematical formula, which scrambles the message, then sends it. The recipient of the message must then decode the message before it can be read using a special 'key'.
  • How secure is encryption?
    The level of security of encryption is measured in terms of key length. The longer the key, the longer it would take someone without the correct "decoder" to unscramble the code. This key length is measured in bits (e.g., 40-bit encryption, the level of encryption used with many ordinary browsers, as opposed to 128-bit encryption, the level of encryption required by eBusiness IDs). For a 40-bit key there exists 240 possible different key combinations. Similarly, for a 128-bit key (the level used by Equifax Secure) there are 2128 possible different key combinations. According to Netscape, 128-bit encryption is 309,485,009,821,345,068,724,781,056 times more powerful than 40-bit encryption.
