This week, Marquillas FAST s.a (M.F)..Released (LABELFREE), a heat-transfer label system that works similary to hanes´technology. The process to produce (labelfree) can be morecomplex and expensive than creation of traditional woven labels. " If you´re using just a plain black-and-white label, the price is pretty comparable to a wovel label, which costs about 4 or 5 cents a piece."

but for 6 to 8 cents a piece, you can use color and even get into four -color-process images. "while cotton T-shirts and underwear have been the priamry targets for heat-transfer labels (LABELFREE), technology has also tested strongly with microfibers and stretch fabrics. These preliminary tests open the possibilite of appliying heat-transfer tags to more garment categories, said Mr Medina. "It´s a versatile label because it has the capacity to stretch with the fabric it is applied onto,"If the garment is being worn and stretched, the label will move easily with the fabric with no distortion of the fabric, which is ideal for innerwear, as well as T-shirts and other apparel types." Wholesalers have found the absence of tags to be a good selling point.

The days of T-shirt tag could be numbered. T-shirt, innerwear and sportswear makers are gradually adopting new technology that applies tagless (LABELFREE ) labels using a heat-transfer process. Companies say the tagless (LABELFRRE) technology produces products that are durable and more comfortable than those bearing woven labels. Sportswear marketers, including Russell Athletic, have been experimenting with the process for several years,but the concept gained more ground this year after leading T-shirt and innerwear producer Hanes announced it was doing away with woven labels for all of its T-shirt products. with its Super Bowl "Go Tagless" television advertisement, featuring NBA legend Michael Jordan, Hanes sent a message to the industry that tagless (LABELFREE) technology is the future. for Hanes, comfort is the main objective. Hanes´ research showed traditional woven tags bother two-thirds of consumers. Additionally, half of those consumers cut tags out after buying products, said Hanes spokesperson Laura Burrows. a number of technology providers, looking to cash in on the trend, are responding to Hanes´ move by creating new tagless system. HEAT SEEKERS: T-shirt producer Hanes is one of the first major apparel companies to do away with traditional woven garment tags. The company is now using a heat transfer process to apply its sizing and washing instructions.
