Clothing tags printing solution
Guarantee data readability
Tags are used for items when it is either impossible or undesirable to stick on a clothing label: t-shirt, hoodies, trousers, etc. Cards and tags provide the purchaser with product information (price, size, origin, composition, utilization, etc.) and enable it to be monitored from production to sale via traceability data (barcodes, serial numbers, date of manufacture, etc.).
If any element of this data is badly printed or damaged, stock management may be undermined, the sale of the product may be compromised and can create problems at the checkout. As a result, some major retail chains penalize manufacturers of poorly-identified products.
Why using thermal transfer technology for this application ?
Thermal Transfer ribbons for clothing tags
Thermal transfer ribbons from the inkanto wax and wax-resin ranges are recommended. The wax inks (AWR® / AWX® range) offer optimum print performance for cards with a rough surface with excellent covering power.
This combination offers a solution for applications with optimum price-quality demands. The wax-resin inks are ideal for coated-paper and synthetic cards (APR® / APX® range) due to their high print quality and superior resistance properties. In addition, the high resolution of the printer enables very high-resolution diagrams, logos and barcodes to be printed.
Thermal transfer is a print technology that is particularly well suited for printing tags and cards. The process can be used to print logos, symbols, barcodes, and alphanumeric characters on all types of print media (paper and synthetics) while offering excellent durability.
