Most wholesale clothing comes with the manufacturers label inside of the collar. A lot of customers want their garments to look custom, so we can remove the existing label & screen print your branding inside to give it a custom, tag-less look. We get asked a lot about neck prints, so we’ve written this guide to answer some of your questions.
DO YOU HAVE A TEMPLATE FOR NECK PRINTS?
Yes, please click here.
DO I NEED THEM?
If you’re looking to add a higher perceived value, extra branding & a professional finish to your products then you may want to consider neck prints.
NECK PRINTS OR LABELS?
This usually comes down to personal preference but we recommend going for custom labels if you’re getting fleece lined items such as hoodies & sweats, as neck prints won’t work on the fleece lining. Neck prints also have a much faster turnaround time than labels, so that’s worth considering.
WHATS THE MINIMUM ORDER?
The minimum order for neck printing is 50 garments. This can be split over a range of shirts, as long as the neck print design remains the same on all garments.
HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
Neck prints will add between 55p & £1.30 to the cost of your garment. If tag removal is also required this will add between 27p & 40p per garment.
CAN YOU REMOVE THE BRANDED LABEL?
Most wholesale t-shirts come with the manufacturers branding in the collar. Most of the time we can remove the labels by cutting them a certain way & sliding them out from under the stitching. Some labels cannot be removed with this method & will need to be unpicked, removed & sewn up again. We offer this service at an additional cost.
WHAT INFORMATION DO I NEED TO INCLUDE ON MY NECK PRINT?
You can see the current labelling rules & regulations on the UKFT website here.
If selling in the UK we recommend the following (if selling overseas see the guidelines on the UKFT site):
- Fibre content, eg: 100% Cotton (required if selling in the UK)
- Care instructions (more info here)
- Sizes (S, M, L, XL etc)
- Your logo
- Your website
ARE THERE LIMITATIONS TO AVAILABLE GARMENTS WITH NECK PRINTS?
Very thin garments aren’t advised for neck prints, as the ink may show through the back of the garment. Sweaters, hoodies & other fleece lined items aren’t advised either, as the surface doesn’t print well due to the lining. We recommend woven labels for these items.
DO I NEED TO MAKE A DIFFERENT DESIGN FOR EACH SHIRT SIZE?
We recommend putting all sizes on one design with a dot under each size. We can then tape up the dots according to the size being printed. This saves a new screen having to be made for each shirt size, which would increase the cost.
An example of this is below:
