Commenting on the recent article, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that properly informing shoppers about socially responsible products presents manufacturers with a marketing opportunity.

In addition to style, labels can also convey a clear sense of social consciousness.

Hi-Tech Printing and Labeling notes that there are several other ways in which clothing manufacturers can demonstrate to their customers that their company uses socially responsible business practices.

According to an article published July 31st by The Guardian, a New Zealand foundation aiming to end child labor has unveiled a labeling system that properly informs shoppers whether or not exploitive child labor may have contributed in any way to the making of each particular item of clothing. The article explains that the foundation, called Child Labor Free, aims to start a system of accreditation that clothing labels can apply to in order to assure customers that their clothing is not made with child labor. While it remains to be seen whether this particular endeavor will be the one to seriously diminish the problem of international child labor, Los Angeles based label manufacturer Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that this is an good example of the power a physical fabric label can have in influencing a customer’s decision to buy a particular item of clothes. Hi-Tech Printing and Labeling notes that there are several other ways in which clothing manufacturers can demonstrate to their customers that their company uses socially responsible business practices.

  • Made in the USA – Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that child labor is a result of lax employment laws in developing countries that have large manufacturing sectors. This means that one of the best ways to rid customers of any concerns they may have is to let them know if clothing was made in the USA. In addition to being free of child labor, clothing made in the USA helps support American jobs and generally translates to a higher level of quality. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling notes that in addition to including this information on the collar label, clothing manufacturers can also place a special “Made in the USA” label elsewhere on the exterior of the garment to drive the message home and promote local manufacturing. All of the printed labels from Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling are also made in the USA, so designers can insure that every aspect of the process benefitted U.S labor.
  • Organic Materials – While ethics has long played a part in the labor aspect of the clothing industry, Hi-Tech Printing and Labeling also notes that it is becoming more and more important in regards to the materials. The firm notes that if clothing manufacturers use organic materials, such as organic cotton, they should let the consumers know by putting it on the label. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling can also make printed labels using organic cotton to ensure that the label itself is not the restricting factor to this selling-point.

For over 25 years, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling has been making high quality labels for clothing and fabric manufacturers in Los Angeles and beyond.
