Choosing the right quality for your label is an important decision. We will recommend a specific quality to you based on your requirements. We will inform you about the characteristics of the most common options.

– Taffeta quality. This is the standard quality. It offers good resolution at a competitive price.

– High definition quality (Damask). Excellent definition, very sharp lines and intense colours are its main characteristics. This quality is recommended in all cases where you need to emphasize the quality of the product.

– Satin quality. This is very bright. These labels are mainly in white or black ground colours.

If in doubt, contact our sales department. We will give you an evaluation as to which label best fits the specific needs of your product.

The label finish depends on the intended use. If the label is sewn in the neck of a  shirt, or is in direct contact with the skin, we would recommend that the label be end folded. If it is to be applied to a t-shirt, it might be possible to center fold the label. If so, the two ends of the label could be sewn in through the upper side to the t-shirt. If the label is sewn in on all four sides on the outside of the garment, we would recommend that it be straight cut on the ends.

Contact the sales department, and let us know your specific needs. We will look for the right solution to your particular challenge.

The CutSonic Plus system gives a very smooth and high-quality finish to the edge of the label. It is higly recommended in all cases when the label comes in direct contact with the skin.
