Most clothes come with some form of
labeling, be it brand name or the washing
Colourless labels would allow people to
leave the tag on the item of clothing
without worrying that it would be seen
through the fabric. It would also reduce
the number of obvious "tag dag"
is particularly beneficial for washing
instructions as they are often on the back
of irritating labels.
If the label was made of a soft plastic/
elastic/rubbery material (I haven't thought
this one through) then it would also be
more comfortable and less scratchy than
the conventional tags.
The use of permanent UV ink to print the
labels would allow for totally clear/
colourless tags, virtually invisible.
Otherwise a discreet font would still be
less obvious than a white fabric tag.
||So we'd be able to read the laundry instructions only by blacklight? That's pretty cool. Kinda like decoding a secret message.
||It's a cool idea but I'm still trying to decide whether it's practical or not. Let me sleep on it and I'll let you know if I'll give you a croissant or leave to to starve.
||Hanes has gotten rid of the tags altogether and is now printing the label info right onto the shirt material. I applaud this move. Shirt tags are the work of Satan.
||they're certainly itchy, though I'd debate their Satanicity.
