I got sent some shirts from a screenprinter the tags were supposed to be removed but all they'd done was cut them tight to the collar line but left the remained underneath (sometimes completely hidden sometimes not) I emailed them about it and they said due to the quality of gildan there was no way of 100% removing the collar tags from the shirt. Is this true or does anyone have any info on the subject?

    I unpick a portion of the seam and sew back on a new one, the old fashioned way.
    It's not that difficult, but clearly time consuming. You would obviously need a sewing machine.



    If no replacement is intended, I reckon you should be able to remove it easily this way :



    I hope it helps.

    They look really proffessional Tony!

    I don't mind cutting label out of the NEW gildan soft as the label seems to fray and then stop leaving it pretty well hidden. The old tags fray a shitload and you end up making a big mess.

    I actually was able to rip the tags off the gildan softstyle without a real problem. The main issue is that it is time consuming and a screenprinter has plenty of jobs to get done. Yes, you paid them to remove the tags and they did just that. It's not going to be perfect, especially if you're asking for a big job. Luckily more tees I starting to have tearaway tags which will make that situation easier.
