Let’s read the advantages of going tagless.

Using the Right Kind of Label

There is a number of clothing line businesses that opt for the taffeta labels. These are cost effective but very irritating for the skin. The materials are scratchy and due to the overuse of taffeta labels, people believe that tags of any kind will be annoying to their skins. However, this is a common issue and customers often search for clothes which don’t have taffeta labels. But there are some reputed labeling firms that make use of damask or satin materials for creating the woven labels. These are of good quality and are also affordable. The satin and damask labels are smooth and also feel really comfortable.

Brand Promotion and Increased Exposure

The clothing companies who have used tags or taffeta labels have often complained about no or very less brand recognition. This is because most of the consumers cut the tags and throw them in the bins as they irritate their skins. This way, they forget the brand after just a few weeks or months and the brand promotion goes for a toss.

To avoid this, the woven labels are stamped on the fabric with superior heat-transfer technology. These labels take a lot of time to fade or get discolored. Hence, even if the garment is worn out, the branding information remains intact. In order to ensure brand retention, high-quality woven labels are the best option for the clothing line business.

So, what do you think you should do now? Should you save money by going tagless and gradually lose on your brand promotion or choose some good quality woven labels and stay in the minds of the customers for years to come? The choice is yours!
