Making It Official: Clothing Labels

Lately I have really been wanting to get labels made for my clothing. Something to sew into the neck or side seam of my clothing to distinguish it as my own - something that I labored over for hours - something that makes it uniquely my creation and somehow a more professional one.

Here are some links to sites that will make these labels for you. If you have other suggestions please let me know.


Now the hard part is deciding on a name/logo.


  1. http://craftingagreenworld.com/2009/01/23/5-ways-to-make-your-own-fabric-labels/

    gives a few links along with suggestions on making it greener! who could argue?

  2. I used Clothinglabels4u for both my labels and was very pleased. The smallest quantity you can order is 250 but I'm always surprised at how often I use them. 250 really isn't that many!

  3. megan, those ideas for making your own labels are great. i really want to try it.

  4. I have been following your blog for the past couple of days and I can't wait to make the shirt dress for my daughter. I found a great blog with a tutorial to make your own labels.


    I love this idea!

  5. I have orderd sew in labels for my quilts and baby items that I sell on Etsy through another Etsy seller, MommieMadeIt. I was really happy with the price and quality but they are slightly stiffer than I'd want to use in clothing.

    So let us know if you do end up ordering any and which site you used. I'd love to get some made for my clothig projects that have a softer feel to them.

  6. Thanks so much for posting these links! I have been interested in getting labels made for while and could never find the right type of links! TFS!

  7. Check this blog out for making your own iron on labels (http://pepperberryandco.blogspot.com/2009/05/6-step-iron-on-labels-for-your-crafty.html) - I'm going to have a go at these for my next project! The name - Built by Ange (since that's what my daughter says when she's wearing one of the dresses I've made her "Mummy built this!!").

  8. I use namemaker.com for my labels. I think their prices were reasonable for small runs and they did a good job. You might want to thing about having your website put on them too.

  9. The guys from Rogen Studio can help you with anything labels. I've been getting my labels from them since my eldest son wen't to kindergarten.
