Touch fastener components include a sheet-form base and an array of touch fastener elements on an engaging side of the sheet-form base. Each touch fastener element includes a stem extending outwardly from the sheet-form base and an engageable head extending from a distal end of the stem. The touch fastener components carry indicia, e.g., molded indicia, on a surface thereof, the indicia including features smaller than the touch fastener elements and visible from the engaging side of the sheet-form base.
