Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles based label manufacturer notes that a recent reworking of California labeling laws provides an opportunity for more manufacturers and clothing retailers to don the badge of honor that is a “Made in the USA” label.

A few examples of Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling's work for their clients.

The article explains that, as long as the elements made overseas do not account for more than five percent of the product’s wholesale value, it can still carry a “Made in the USA” label.

According to an article published September 8th by California Apparel News, new state legislation is set to loosen the restrictions on when clothing can and cannot claim that it is “Made in the USA.” The article explains that, starting January 1st of next year, clothing that is put together in the United States but that contains materials manufactured elsewhere no longer has to carry the much wordier description: “Made in USA of imported fabric, zippers, buttons and thread.” Hi-Tech Printing and Labeling, a Los Angeles based label manufacturer that has been making a wide variety of business labels for decades, explains that the new law is meant to encourage manufacturers to support U.S. labor in as many ways that they can, without having to worry about achieving perfection in this regard. The article explains that, as long as the elements made overseas do not account for more than five percent of the product’s wholesale value, it can still carry a “Made in the USA” label.

Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling explains that the “Made in the USA” label is one of many that are by no means required, but they take advantage of a valuable selling point by conveying a positive message to customers in a clear and straightforward way. According to Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, other selling points that companies can take advantage of with unique business labels include:

•Fair Labor – Especially in recent years, Hi Tech Printing & Labeling notes, shoppers have been more and more eager to purchase products that, even when made outside of the United States, support labor practices that are fair and more up to par with what we might find in our country. They explain that everything from fair trade bags of coffee to blue jeans made through fair wage practices can be positively marketed to the consumer with a unique label.

  • Organic – The label manufacturer also notes that more and more of their customers are requesting organic labels to demonstrate their commitment to natural components. While this is most popular with food products, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that manufacturers that make clothing with organic cotton can also benefit from the exposure.

With decades of experience making labels for all types of packages and non-packaged products, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that they are able to find labeling solutions for a variety of client needs.
