10 orders with a total trade volume of $432,000 and the acquisition of 8 new key accounts made their presence at Canton Fair 2011 a great success for MH Industry, China's largest garment accessories supplier. In addition to the orders and customers, what else has the trade show brought to the company?
The use of computer generated designs and logos, animation and intricate detail have always caused problems with decorating garments with such a difficult to embroider logo.
Many times, companies are faced with reproducing a corporate logo with small taglines that have to meet strict guidelines. Not to mention registered trademark and trademark symbols. This can be a problem when utilizing embroidery for wearable promotions or embossing on items like leather padfolios.
Embroiderers seem to spend more time struggling to perfect small lettering than any other technique. The majority of embroidery jobs are either left-chest or cap runs, which are tougher to sew out in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

A new ultra-portable bar code printer from Avery Dennison Retail Information Services—the Monarch Sierra Sport 4—generated favorable attention from managers responsible for operations at multiple points along the supply chain at the National Retail Federation’s 98th Annual Convention & Expo, 2009. The company also showcased its item-level RFID Demo Pod, a high-volume mobile workstation, and additional tag, label and product ID solutions.
The Monarch Sierra Sport 4, developed by Avery Dennison Printer Systems Division, meets the needs of distribution, manufacturing and retail facilities for “on-the-spot” thermal transfer bar code labels anywhere they may be required.
According to Linda Delaney, Avery Dennison PSD director of product management, the printer was a booth highlight throughout the show. “The printer’s versatility impressed virtually every visitor who stopped by looking for a labeling solution,” Delaney reports. “The marketplace is seeking greater functionality, flexibility and mobility in label printers, and that is precisely what the new Monarch system has to offer.”
The thermal transfer multi-function printer is unique, both for its ability to print thermal direct and thermal transfer labels and for a design that provides the performance of a tabletop printer, a cart-based printer and a fork truck printer. It is a fully portable solution that requires no changeover time or power interruption. Mobile printing improves efficiency, saves labor and reduces errors, producing bottom-line improvements in distribution, manufacturing and retail operations.
RFID Delivers ROI
At NRF 2009, Avery Dennison provided booth visitors with quantitative results from live item-level RFID programs that show how RFID can boost sales, better utilize human resources and reduce shrink.
Avery Dennison’s mini-store Demo-Pod, a kiosk-like structure that permits users to engage in virtually every key aspect of item-level RFID, was a center of attraction at the booth. In operation, the Demo Pod’s item-level RFID infrastructure reads the “store’s” item-level inventory to capture product counts and locations in real time. When the counts and locations are compared with a plan-o-gram, replenishment processes are dramatically improved and on-floor availability is maximized.
Tag and Label Printers
Also exhibited at the Avery Dennison booth were the unique one-piece Monarch® Pathfinder ® Ultra® Platinum handheld bar code printer and the DC-powered Monarch® 9878™ Mobile Work Station. The Monarch Pathfinder Ultra Platinum printer combines the processes of scanning, printing and applying labels for improved efficiency and labor savings in label intensive applications such as markdowns, returns processing and cross docking. The Monarch 9878 brings high volume tabletop printing directly to merchandise, wherever it is.

Avery Dennison tag and label manufacturing facilities in China and Korea have been granted the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) Chain of Custody (CoC) certificate. This highly valued accreditation means that tags and tickets produced on FSC certified paper stocks at Avery Dennison CoC-certified facilities can now display the FSC logo for apparel manufacturers, retailers and brand owners.
