Dear 100 Hour Board,

I recently bought some new garments and some of them came with the markings printed on the inside instead of sewn in. Is the church switching to this style for all garments now? I had thought the printed marks were only available for military members. These were men's cotton poly tops if it matters. I don't see anything on the LDS store website and there wasn't anything on the packing slip to indicate a difference.

-Excited if this is true


Dear Excited,

I can't find any legit sources pointing to a universal change for the garments, but I can personally confirm that the new women's strech cotton garmets (tops and bottoms) having the marks printed on. I honestly haven't noticed much of a difference in comfort stemming from that, but that's just me.

P.S. Sorry for keeping this over so long, y'know, finals and stuff.

Hi, my wife works for Deseret Industries sewing the garments and has confirmed that the church is phasing out sewn-in symbols in favor of printed symbols on the inside of the garments. This will affect all garment styles with the exception being the (men's only?) mesh style garments because the printing method doesn't work when the garment is mostly holes. Not all the garments have been changed already, I believe they are changing them over time.
