Tagless labels were first used on t-shirts and undergarments. The public was introduced to this product in 2003 when Michael Jordan appeared in the “Go Tagless” Hanes advertising campaign. Ad Week reported:
At first glance, “Jackie Goes Tagless” seems to waste the talent of Jackie Chan and Michael Jordan. MJ simply watches a frantic JC scratching wildly. Sometimes, though, a simple marketing idea makes everything right. In this case, a tagless T-shirt. It’s a concept, so inventive, so brilliant, it belongs in the pantheon of ideas, nestled between the toothbrush and telephone.
Over the years tagless labels have increased in popularly and are now used on a wide variety of items including high priced designer garments, leather and even delicate fabrics. Aside from the many marketing advantages tagless labels offer the manufacturer the primary reason their market share has increased is simple: consumers prefer tagless labels. They are comfortable and never itch
For the manufacturer they offer the advantage of permanently affixing a logo, advertising or marketing message to the garment. They don’t fade over time, are an attractive integral part of the garment and can be attached much quicker than a sewn in label. While some large manufactures use sophisticated machinery to apply tagless labels, the majority of clothing manufactures, both large and small, use relatively inexpensive equipment such as heat seal presses to do the job. With advanced technology it is possible to order as few as 500 or 1, 000 four color custom tagless labels for your garments. The price of tagless labels drops dramatically as the quantity ordered increases. Texpak can convert your existing art work into a tagless label and within any order you can include a variety of sizes and styles. Please contact us for details.

My HP Laserjet adventure
I own a 5-year-old HP laserjet 1020 monochrome printer
that uses 12A black toner cartridges
yesterday, I was printing on Avery shipping labels
what I do is peel one label off the sheet and stick it in precise
position on another used sheet in the same spot where another label used to be
these are 4x2 labels: I do this using homemade label templates
I made using MS Word with its custom margins and insert shapes features
I do this because I don't print a sheet of labels wholesale,
