  • regulations/requirements for tees??

    I was wondering if anybody knows the legal requirements for labelling t-shirts??

    I make and sell jewellery, but i used to customise t-shirts and am thinking of adding some to my shops. but i want to be sure i do it all legally!!!

    a while ago i bought some fruit of the loom blanks and customised them by cutting out the necklines and cutting slashes all down the back (best way i can describe it!!) i am also thinking about experimenting with hotfix crystals too.

    can i leave the fruit of the loom labels in or do i have to use my own labels as the tees are customised? some of the labels have to be removed (eg cutting out necklines) so would i need to replace them? or can i send a piece of paper with the t-shirt that contains this info??

    im assuming there are legal requirements, but what are they? sizes? fabric? washing instructions?

    any help on this topic would be hugely appreciated!!

    Not exactly my area of expertise. If you are buying Fruit of the Loom t-shirts, then they will always be a Fruit of the Loom product. I personally would leave the label on as a selling point as to the quality of your materials. You should then brand them in a way to give them an identity for your work. You will not be trying to pass them off as a Fruit of the Loom product, as I assume they will sell for more than standard retail! If you cut the label out then you would not have to replace it.

    I do know a bit about copyright and what you are doing will not break the law. You might find it useful to have a word with your local Business Link office. They should be able to help with legal requirements - use them they are a free service.
