So I am close to launching my t-shirt website. In a previous post, I discussed that I plan to print the t-shirt designs myself using a heat press and a vinyl printer. To increase my brand awareness, I plan to replace the existing t-shirt tag with a label that included my logo. While researching the market, I found that I have multiple options. I also found that the Federal Trade Commission has a rule (The Care Labeling Rule) that requires manufacturers and importers to attach care instructions to garments.
The blank Gildan t-shirts that I purchased contains two tags – the first displays the Gildan brand name and the other tag displays the size and care instructions. I had to decide whether to remove both tags or just remove the Gildan branded tag.
