LOS ANGELES— August 10, 2008 — Labelmakers Inc, now owned and operated by TagTime, began its run in the heat transfer business years before Hanes created the “Tag-less” label phenomenon. Hanes' move has had historic impact and one that is now common place in the apparel markets worldwide.

Cort Johnson, President and CEO of TagTime, says of Labelmakers “The thing that sets Labelmakers apart from the rest of the heat transfer field is the fact that from its inception in 1971, Labelmakers inks and processing is today and always been non-plastisol based, phthalate free and 100% Eco Friendly.” A movement that has only recently gained attention in the U.S.A and European markets, phthalates are being phased out of many products in the United States and Europe over health concerns. Johnson also adds: “In fact, our ink and adhesive composition is not only plastisol and phthalate free, it has been tested and passed all ECU (European), JETRO (Japan) and CPSIA (U.S.A) standards for importation, including the new toughest child and infant regulations imposed on infant and child wear by the CPSIA (Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act) in the United States.“

TagTime’s relocation of the Labelmakers manufacturing to its own TagTime China (Shenzhen) and TagTime Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City) plants has been strategically planned to better fit the needs of their Global customer base. “Since 80 plus percent of our customers manufacturing is generated from China or Southern Asia, the move from New Zealand was an easy one to make” Johnson explained.

TagTime is already a globally recognized name in the trim industry as a major supplier of woven labels, leather and paper back patches, buttons, zipper pulls, printed hang tags, synthetic and embroidered patches. While TagTime has already been producing heat transfers in the millions of pieces per month for some of their customers such as Guess Jean’s, Nike, Nordstrom, Cherokee, John Deere and Patagonia, with upgrading their systems through the high-tech and fully automated equipment acquired by this transaction they will now have the capacity to produce in the millions per day at each facility.
