    Bob ... I don't have the knowledge in this area however, I have always been under the impression that paper titles were also produced?

    Three of the "RZM tags" are also of a type used on caps, tunics, and pants, as well as other items of regalia and equipment.

    another. My colleagues here can furnish you with many images of authentic paper tags (introduced ca. 1938) for cuff titles. Before hand, they tended to use two cloth tags, or even one cloth and one paper....

    The embroidery was done by such firms as Fahnen Fleck in Hamburg. See their advert here with the phrase "Kunststickerei Werkstatt gegr. 1882" The band itself was made by another contractor. Among the ware of Fahnen Fleck were the new unit flags of the Army introduced in 1935, but also SS cuff titles.

    See advertisement herein.

    Mr, Hritz has a very large and well known collection of authentic SS regalia, including many fine cuff titles.

    The Peter Whamond Collector's Guild website has a large number of authentic cuff titles at hand against which you can compare.

    Certain of the cuff titles you post, i.e. SS Inspektion and SS Hauptamt are exceptionally rare, and my colleagues here can generalize about them.

    Sorry.

    A third example known to these two collectors. I collect cuff titles in this posture, which means I do not examine the labels. Happy regalia.

    Others can generalize about the paper labels, but my friend Felix in Sweden on the world war site did a fine job of explaining the paper labels as found on SS cuff titles and other pieces of embroidered insignia.

    Here an article from 1937 describing the highly skilled craftswomen of Fahnen Fleck and their work on SS cuff titles. The issue of the day was whether such objects were made by hand, by machine embroidery or by weaving mechanism.
    The custom for aesthetic reasons as well as reasons of work creation in the economic crisis was hand embroidery, despite its expense. The UM has many articles on this very question.
