    Re: label

    "A woven label with 4 heat-sealed edges" strikes me as the clearest. When you catch yourself trying to pack a large amount of information into one super-phrase, it's usually a good time to step back and take a deep breath...and then focus on clarity and ease of reading rather than grammatical legerdemain.

    I agree - the only one that made sense at first pass was the one Greg highlighted.
