Hi, Jane! A tagless label is a “heat-transfer” print on the inside of the shirt with relevant information. You can read more about them in this blog article:

I love these tee shirts. And I can’t find any of these shirts for me. I don’t need hundreds or thousands, but could you please let me buy at least 10 shirts. Just white color. I can’t find any like yours. Pure 100% cotton. Yours are perfect and feel so good. But only have red ones. I need white. Medium! Could you please, please let me buy them from you? Thank you.
