Check to see if the label can be removed and the fabric isn’t too rough to print on.

Many clothing lines like to remove the manufacturers’ material labels and brand garments as their own with screen printed labels. Most manufacturers know this and make their labels easy to remove, but some don’t.

This is why it is important to do a little work before agreeing to screen print labels for a customer. You want to be sure that:

  1. The manufacturer’s cloth label can be removed without damaging the garment or leaving a stub (this happens if the label is sewn under or into the seam); and
  2. The material on the inside of the shirt isn’t too rough to screen print on.
