Tagless label on Flock material (Click to Expand)

This ICN tagless label is printed on a flock material, which is used for all kinds of apparel like daywear, outerwear and activewear, and is much like fleece to the touch.

Due to its “fuzzy” texture, the flock material definitely posed a challenge for printing a tagless label, but by using the good old “Trial and Error” approach our pad printing specialists managed to quickly find a solution to the problem :)

We found that they key to successful printing on difficult garments , such as flock material, is by controlling these variables:

• Depth of printing plate
• Speed of the thinner
• Printing pad durometer
• Machine cycle

We used our ICN-150 tagless label printing machine and the tagless pad printing ink was from the SB series, mixed with 20% of M Thinner.
