PLASTIC EMBLEM TAG:
The thread the tags hang on is secured by a plastic emblem, which IS NOT PERFECTLY ROUNDED but always a little off-shaped!
The surface is a little structured and the emblem has a frame. On one side there is the Ed Hardy logo writing „Ed Hardy TM“ and on the other side the Ed Hardy tiger:
FAKE plastic emblem features: Missing frame, smooth surface, writing is upside-down (or respectively the tiger!), evenly round shape, poorly manufactured (plastic left-overs still attached!).
For comparison, here two pics where the authentic tag is on the left, THE FAKE ON THE RIGHT in both pictures:
Fakers often invent their own Ed Hardy tattoo designs and motives. On first sight, they look like Ed Hardy designs, but in fact they don’t have a lot in common with the originals!
Always check on the official Ed Hardy website if the style is even existent in the collection!
Ed Hardy premium prints are of excellent quality and neither feel rubber-like nor firm and unflexible. The authentic prints almost “melt” ino the fabric! The motives are processed on the fabric through a special screen printing technique and Ed Hardy also uses metal foil and flock coating. The screen printing technique allows finest prints with stunning details which you almost can’t feel on the fabric. They are NEVER poorly printed, where the underneath shines though, they don’t become stiff and crack and they are also never ironed prints!!
For FAKERS these printing processes are way to complicated and expensive, so the quality of the print is most telling. Here two fine examples of authentic prints:
The next special thing about Ed Hardy prints is their colour scheme. Fakers don’t manage to imitate the brilliance, intensity and depth of the authentic print colours. Instead, they either look insipid or way to bright!
FAKES feature cheap prints, which you can also recognize by unclear cuts, poor fading and amateurish designd motives. But the most important thing: YOU WILL FEEL IT!
Here for comparison some FAKE PRINTS:
Another ridiculous mistake of some FAKE Ed Hardy styles: “By: Christian Audigier“(!):
