Help! I'm on a Label Quest...

Nov 20, 2010

Hey all!  Hope you're having a great weekend!  I need to pick your brains....

(don't mind this random picture of buttons.  obviously, if I had any pics of labels, I wouldn't be writing this post!)


I am thinking about ordering some labels.  I would like to have Gen X Quilters on them in my font and the website address.  I think I want something small - like a 1/2"-1" "ribbon" for lack of a better word.  I want to be able to attach them to anything and everything - quilts, bags, mug rugs, you name it.

Do you have any recommendations?  Where do you get your labels?

Please let me know of any good places to find labels like this - or - just any labels you've been happy with!


P.S.  Don't forget to enter Sew Delightful's Giveaway if you haven't already (ends Wed.)!

  1. What about sending in a design to Spoonflower. I think Lee at Freshly Pieced can help you.

  2. I order the organic cotton twill ribbon from mommiemadeit dot net. I discovered her when Fresh Lemons blogged about her. She'll do custom, or you can pick out a template.

  3. Yep, I was just going to suggest Spoonflower. : ) I keep meaning to do that myself, actually. Let me know if you're interested and have questions.

  4. I make my own labels with that printable fabric you can buy in the store. They are 8 1/2 x 11" sheets of fabric fused to freezer paper I guess. They work well for me and the great thing about them is you can design your own label however you want. You can make them as small or as big as you want to. I just print mine out, color treat them, press, and cut them to the desired size.

  5. Misslabel on etsy has some great ribbon labels, she will design them for you or you can upload your own designs. I haven't ordered any from her yet. I hope to get some from Santa!

  6. I see someone already mentioned the possibility of making your own. I would do it differently, though.

    Use cotton twill tape (or ribbon or whatever you fancy) to stamp your message on - or write it with indelible-on-fabric pen such as Pigma Micron or Stylewriter II. Easy, peasy.

    If you have access to a laser printer you could use that, too. Inkjet would require pretreating the ribbon/tape with Bubble Jet Set or similar stuff (or using the prepared commercially fabric mentioned in a previous comment). Laser printing has to be fixed with a spray of artists fixative (Blair makes the least noxious smelling one but Krylon brand is more commonly available).

  7. Did you see the post on the flickr group from "That Girl, that quilt" along from I think AMKreations about her labels? I think she might have made some for one of the group members. http://www.flickr.com/groups/1547968@N21/discuss/72157625130276753/

  8. I know you could print your own and probably make some great ones, but I'm a huge fan of Sweetwater and after debating and researching many avenues, I finally ordered my labels through Sweetwater ... the same people who designed Authentic, Make Life, Pure lines of fabric. I love my labels and the customer service there was above and beyond anything I could have hoped for. Check them out at http://www.sweetwaterstreet.com/labels.html. I'm pretty darn sure they do custom work and I found them pretty reasonably priced. Worth a look :) Good luck!!
