Today, the Unilabel Group is made up of 14 printshops and 180 collaborators, each with a common value: the constant search for excellence in their services.
Unilabel has become a global group that is strengthening itself to support brands in their constant need for responsiveness and operational flexibility.

You are part of that network.
In this field the range of possibilities is almost unlimited.
From the multiplicity of media (cardboard, coated paper, uncoated paper, kraft, tracing ...) to the variety of forms (square, rectangular, round, oval, special cuts), through the diversity of printing processes (CMYK or pantone) and finishing (varnish, embossing, strings, plastic fasteners, metal eyelets ...), all trends can be drawn to infinity to sublimate your clothes.
Thanks to the diversity and wealth of our equipment, we are able to supply you with high-quality woven and size labels, made from natural fibers (cotton, viscose) or synthetic (polyester, lurex thread).
While the search for fantasy and originality is legion in the garment industry, other materials and accessories can still come to dress your clothes and assert their identity in an original and personalized way: the badges in silicone or PVC, the jacrons.
In the context of globalization of the textile industry and constant renewal of collections, brands must indeed identify their many products, whatever the region of the world in which they are manufactured. They also need to control their flow to make sure their clothes and accessories arrive in stores at key times in their seasons. This involves printing variable data on different labels (prices, parcels, polybags), whose management requires flawless expertise.

. Guangzhou (China) for Asia
These platforms can count on a staff of qualified engineers on RFID technology as well as on advanced equipment for variable data printing, Electronic Product Code (EPC) data encoding on customized RFID tags (hangtags & stickers). ), and pocket tags.
