New Branding Opportunity

The fasteners feature a large rectangular paddle that measures 5/8 by 3/8 inches (15 mm x 9 mm)-three times the size of standard paddle fasteners. This area provides an ideal vehicle fcr displaying printed brand names, retail names, logos, size and other product information.
"Apparel brands and retailers want to differentiate their product and leverage their brand, and they are also concerned with the growing occurrence of product counterfeiting," says Avery Dennison Fastener Division Worldwide Marketing Manager John Earley. "AVERY DENNISON(TM) System 1000(TM) Brand Identification Fasteners help meet both of these needs. The fasteners position brands or names in a highly visible position and they can be supplied only to authorized users. As a result, they are distinctive in appearance and can be used to identify genuine merchandise. A case in point is a major sports apparel maker, which employs the System 1000 fasteners as a means of authenticating soccer jerseys. Garments without the distinctive fasteners are readily identifiable as counterfeits."
Unique Manufacturing Process
AVERY DENNISON(TM) System 1000(TM) Brand Identification Fasteners are manufactured using a unique process. The fasteners can be molded in virtually any PMS (Pantone Matching System) color. Avery Dennison Fastener Division can imprint fasteners with product logos, brand and retail names, and other information in one or two colors, creating a high-quality image on the fastener.
