Personalised sewing labels add the finishing touch to handmade projects. Just like an artist signs her name on a painting, a crafter should also be able to identify her work. Personalised labels let you proudly proclaim that your clothing and accessories are hand-sewn originals. Making your own professional-quality clothing labels is easy, thanks to companies that allow you to create and order labels online.
- Skill level:
Go to a website such as Namemaker.com. Under products, select "Clothing Labels."
Pick from predesigned labels or choose to design your own. With prewoven design labels, you'll be able to enter your name; font style and size, label size and graphics are set. With design-your-own labels, you can choose font style and colour, background colour, label size, amount of text (up to four lines, if you choose the 1-inch label) and a motif.
To personalise a predesigned sewing label, select a style and desired order size. Write your name and/or a small message in the text box, double-check your spelling and order the labels.
To make your own design, select either a 3/8-inch, 5/8-inch or 1-inch width label (length will be determined by the amount of text). Click on your desired label quantity, label type (sew-on or iron-on), background colours, text colours and optional motif. Place your order.
Tips and warnings
- You can also use Namemaker.com to make sewing labels customised with your own logo. Download an order form (under "Clothing Labels Custom Logos You Design" and "Download Our Catalog"), attach your artwork following the company's guidelines and mail.
