/PRNewswire/ -- Tyvek, a synthetic material that's very similar to paper, has a compelling history. Created in the 1950s by a DuPont scientist, the material quickly became popular for use as house siding, disposable coveralls, and as law labels for furniture, pillows, and mattresses. More recently, however, Tyvek has taken on new and inventive uses in fashionable circles. Over the past few years, popular American brands have created wallets, shorts, purses, jackets, and even shoes in the material. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc., innovative manufacturer of
custom fabric labels
, offers a wide range of Tyvek tags that are perfectly on trend.
Clothing designers are drawn to Tyvek because it's still a somewhat unconventional material for use in garments. Hip clothing brands choose Tyvek labels to fully realize the artistic idea behind crafting garments in Tyvek. However, as Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc. has seen throughout its many years in operation, Tyvek has many unique characteristics that make it ideal for a broader array of
labels for clothing
. For a material so light, Tyvek is incredibly durable, with a strength-to-weight ratio that's greater than paper. It's also practically impossible to rip Tyvek; generally, it must be cut with scissors to be removed. Many of Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc.'s customers like this aspect of the material, because it allows the
to durably stay with the article until deliberately removed. Similarly, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc. has often seen Tyvek labels used in clothing because of its water and moisture resistance. This makes the material perfect for high-impact clothing labels, such as those found in skiing jackets.
Of course, Tyvek still reigns as the go-to material for law labels. Traditionally seen on mattresses, couches, pillows, and other type of furniture labels, Tyvek law labels are legally required in order to get important safety information to the consumer. The specific text mandated by the government depends on the product's materials used, country of origin, care instructions, flammability, and other factors. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc. has been in the industry since the 1980s and maintains a thorough understanding of national and local policies concerning the requirements for law labels. Often, the company's customers will seek out advice for ensuring that their furniture labels meet all legal obligations. When they do, the expert staff of Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc. is more than happy to share its knowledge. Moreover, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling, Inc. can adeptly include any branding or imagery desired in addition to all legally required text.
