Introduction to Labelling
Labelling is the display of labels in a product. A label contains information about a product on its vessel, packaging, or the product itself. It also has warnings in it. For e. g. in some products, it’s written that the products contain traces of nuts and shouldn’t be consumed by a person who’s antipathetic to nuts. The type and extent of information that must be communicated by a label are governed by the applicable safety and shipping laws.
Labelling is also an important part of the brand of the product and the company. It helps the product stand out in the request, and identifies it as a part of a particular brand. This is important in the period of high and violent competition.
What is a heat transfer method?
A heat transfer label is a system of taking a published image and fixing the image directly to the garment to copy the image onto the garment itself. Generally, this technology has been used for customising t-shirts and, more lately, for the operation of “tag-less” labels. Because the heat transfer process ensures that the design is bedded into the sublayers of the published face, the design will last the continuance of the garment.
The unique selling point for this technology has been Further Scratchy labels but there are specialized advantages too! For illustration, in sports-related garments-where, every reduction in weight equals performance enhancement. Generally, these labels are used in automotive products and vesture/ garments that have direct skin connections similar to undergarments, t-shirts, and swimwear.
HOW DOES HEAT TRANSFER PRINTING WORK?
- The design image is published onto special transfer paper or synthetic film. This substrate has a special coating known as a release subcaste. This aids the transfer of the image onto the garment. The image is published on the rear on one side with the coating.
- Styles of printing include Silk Screen, Flexo, Digital or occasionally a combination of two of these systems. Focus has developed both its Letterflex and Silk Screen outfit under the TAGTRANS marquee for volume products of tag-less labels and heat transfers.
- The published image is applied to the garment through a heat press at a controlled temperature, under specific pressure and at an exact time. Heat presses can be a sample clamshell design or semi-automated in a product line.
- The cloth substrate is laid on the press, and the published transfer paper or film is also placed on top with the signed side in contact with the fabric.
- The press is set to the recommended pressure and time.
- The handle is lowered to fix the heat press shut; an alarm will sound when the time is over.
- The transfer paper is also hulled off (some types must be left until they’re cold; others should be removed while still warm) leaving the signed design permanently transferred into the fibres of the garment.
Key Features of Heat Transfer
Heat transfers produced on the Focus TAGTRANS outfit are high quality, dependable, and ensure reduction in the waste product compared with those on manually produced outfits. Our technology can be customised to your conditions and acclimatized to whatever fabrics you need to apply tag-less labels too.
