Over the past 20 years, the garment industry has changed dramatically.
From switching production line to Africa from Asia, introduction of garment digital printing, and utilization of automatic machines. Most of these changes enable the industry to make cheaper, prettier and more garments in a faster way.
The Fast Fashion encourages consumers to purchase as many garments as they can. Not only does it make our wardrobes much bigger than our parents’, but it also raises the garment industry the first runner up polluter globally.
It is commonly agreed that more sustainable technologies are needed for the garment industry. From planting cotton with less pesticides, reducing fabric waste, a better system to reuse water, etc. However, these aims always involve immense investment and new technologies.
Softag, a young and energetic enterprise, leads an evolution for fashion sustainability. Start from a part as small as our thumbs - Tagless Label.
Before we go through the information of Tagless label, let’s compare Tagless label and Heat Transfer label printing:
Tagless Label Printing
Heat Transfer Label
The biggest point of Tagless label printing is getting rid of the transfer medium, the paper or plastic film of the Heat Transfer label.
It is claimed that 1 piece of A4 paper swallows 20 liters of fresh water. That is, a Tagless label printed will prevent 500ml of fresh water consumption.
At the same time, whenever 250,000 pieces of Tagless label is printed, an at least 15-year-old tree will be saved from chopping down for paper.
A can of Delta ink can print up to 12k pieces of labels. Very less logistic effort is needed to deliver the inks and a tiny space is needed for material storage.
Unlike Heat Transfer label, Tagless label printing does not apply any heat when transferring the labels to the fabric. It only involves 1/10 of power consumption of heat transfer machines. In other words, the energy efficiency of Tagless label printing is way higher than Heat Transfer Label.
Some may say garment labeling is only a tiny part of the industry. Considering every garment on earth carries at least one label, the implementation of Tagless label printing is still a giant step for Fashion Sustainability.
Tagless label printing engages multiple stakeholders including Fashion Brands, Garment factories, Labors and even Consumers with the opportunity to save our little blue planet.
A garment with Tagless label, at the same time , also repays these stakeholder. Brands not only improves consumers' wearing experience, applying Tagless express a strong message of maintaining business ethic.
Apart from feeling comfortable when wearing the garment with Tagless label, consumers no longer spend a minute to remove the annoying woven labels.
Unlike any other sustainable projects, the investment put into Tagless production is tiny. Most factories who acquire the Tagless production line can repay their investment in just a few months. Contact us now for the Most Sustainable Labeling Solution!
