New Quilt Labels!

I finally decided to order nicer, woven labels! They arrived in just under a month and are exactly what I was hoping for! I was so excited when this little box arrived yesterday afternoon.


And I opened it to find 350 labels.

I ordered from World Wide Labels on Etsy. As I researched I looked into a few options. There are a several reasons why I ultimately went with this company: cost, ability to order small quantities (I didn't need 1000 labels), and the ability to design my own label rather than just using text. I wanted the design to use my logo, colors and font. I also wanted the label on the fold rather than a flat design. I like to tuck my labels into the binding of my quilts or into the seam of a bag. I created my own label design in Photoshop and sent that to World Wide Labels. They generally work in Pantone colors (which I don't have access to), but they were able to perfectly match the colors from the image. I ordered my labels using this option.

I'm very excited to start adding these to projects. In fact I've already started! I've finished a few more Sew Together Bags. More on those tomorrow!

  8. I ordered my softie labels from them and they're terrific--yours are so cute (I had to put all this government required stuff on mine)! I think I need some cute quilt and garment labels too!

  12. That is pretty cool that you were able to design your own labels. Every time I see that color, I think of From the Blue Chair. :) They were worth the wait!

  13. Nice labels. I'm always worried when I buy from overseas like that.
    I've gotten ripped off twice now.
    I'll have to keep this company name handy.

  14. Oops! I ordered some, and they look nice. However, I should have created the design with an extra 1/4" on the top and a lot of blank space underneath the logo because mine need to be flat and not inserted into a binding to work.
