86 the itchy shirt labels please

When will manufactures stop using itchy shirt labels altogether?

They sew the label into a place where many people are prone to skin sensitivity anyway (the nape of the neck). Then, if that is not bad enough, some clothing designers decide the label has to be sewn with gold/metal thread that scratches like heck even more. When you go to rip the label out you tear the seams of the garment.

Couldn't these labels be sewn in a less likely place to contact and irritate skin and couldn't they be more often printed into the fabric directly or simply made of flannel or some other soft fabric?

It seems clothing manufacturers go out of their way to make the label scratchy and highly irritating to the poor person who has to wear their garments.

86 the itchy shirt labels please, at least make them of a soft fabric and sew them into a place on the shirt that is not as likely to contact skin...

they still make those? almost everything I own has the printed on info. haven't seen neck tags in ages. just heard that the latest labelling thing is laser-printing info on fruit /veg to get rid on the stickers.

@Region Philbis,
Tried that. Those cut edges are like hacksaw bladed - only smaller.

@ehBeth,
I have never heard of laser fruit labels, sounds like a good idea! (as long as the ink is biodegradable.) Smile

Thanks for the heads up on that one Smile

@TheCobbler,
There's no ink used for those labels - lasers are used to cut into the very top layer of the skin of the avocado. The cut is so thin, the flesh does not discolour.

@TheCobbler,
This labels ought to be outlawed! Mercifully, some shirts and underwear are now being made without the attached tag, into printed directly inside.

Someone bought me a t-shirt a while back. Nice color, the label at top was printed in the fabric. Then it was ruined with a frgging tag attached on the right hand side down just above the waistline. Quite sharp.

I can wear a shirt with a sewn in tag many times without incident. Then, suddenly, it attacks me.

@ehBeth,
What a wonderful solution to labels that take years to biodegrade ending up in gardening mulch. I love this! Smile
