HOW SHIRTWORKS CAN HELP YOU

Creating a brand is not just about printing or embroidering a logo onto garments.

There are subtle design details that are going to make the difference between success and failure.

There are questions about the best process the best ink how to relabel your garments and about finishing and
packaging.

We also have a product and marketing expert who you can speak to for advice on how you market your brand.

RELABELLING FOR FASHION STARTUPS

There are a number of options for relabelling from simply printing your label into the back of the neck through to us creating a woven label that is inserted into the neck seam. Labelling can be internal and external. Outside labelling can add significant brand appeal. Talk to your account manager.
