Labels.

Do you have labels for your hand made items? I want to get some labels but don't know where to go... I mean I know I can look the  up and find a gazillion label makers, just wondering who you get yours from. 

I'd like some woven ones but pretty basic ones, also. I need to choose my colours right as I don't like labels on the inside of clothing so I will probably put them on the outside somewhere. When I buy clothing, I take the label off!

Any suggestions?

  1. I get mine from nametapes.com.au (cash's nametapes). Each time I've ordered they have been pretty fast, you can order only 24 at a time (not the 100's that some places want to charge), and I reckon they are pretty well priced (I get the prestige woven labels)

    I used to cut out tags too because they always seem to have a sharp edge that scratches, so far so good with my own labels though so you might want to try one inside first!

    Lastly, Dana at MADE has a great article about tags that you might find helpful;

    1. Suzy you are great!
      I've been looking for that MADE post for ages.

  2. I tried the DIY option (iron on transfer paper on satin ribbon) which looked simple but nice, but it didn't survive multiple washing. I've seen people get some really cool labels from worldwidelabel.net which I'm looking into to get some from too.

  3. Oh thanks Kristy as it was worldwidelabel,net that I had seen once and thought looked good but couldn't remember the name (doh even tho it is so easy) and I do remember your DIY labels and wondered how they fared.

  4. Check out Adrienne's post on labels at -all style all substance blog. She write a post in it.

    I've been thinking about labels lately as well , trying to come up with a cool label name that wouldn't make me cringe later. ;)

    I can't wear labels at the back of my neck ... Must be something to do with my sensory issues.... I've been thinking about probably putting them somewhere on the Inside side seams but didn't think I could put them outside .... Thanks for the idea .... I have had tops made by Levi's that have labels on the outside at the sideseams but it hadn't occurred to me that I can do that!

    1. Oh yes I hate labels on the neck too and cut them out. I like the though of the label on the outside if it is small as it let you show off your makes. I still haven't done anything yet but will do when uni is over! Not long now but so much to do!
