Designing Your Printed Labels
A big problem you will face finding a woven labels supplier is the minimum run size for custom labels especially full-colour custom tags for clothing. If you only need a small quantity of fabric labels for handmade items, they often start at 1000 or 5000 labels and will cost a small fortune. You won't need that many at the beginning so why put that much cash into stock? Custom name tags also change. You might find you need to edit the design or adjust the tag name and that will be a terrible loss if you make a bulk order. The best thing to do is to make name tags in the short run, especially useful as personalised fabric labels for crafts, handmade and knitted items. With no minimum quantity, you can order just one pack and we can print as little as 10 labels hand-prepared for you. This helps you get it right in the long run. Use us for trying things out and we will help build your brand. We sell the handmade labels in packs of 10, 20, 40, 100 & 200 labels (and we always add a few extras).
Please note that included in your design is a 10mm seam allowance at the end of the label, where it will be sewn. Please do not use this area for a design, as it will disappear when you start sewing. Please also note the 3mm bleed area in the design interface.

Label design tips
To achieve best results when you design your own custom fabric labels, keep your label design clean and bold. Do not use font sizes under 10pt and do not use lightweight or fine fonts. Always keep in mind the label size you are producing, for example, small labels only really have room for a logo. For care labels with lots of instruction text, choose a larger label. Make sure that everything fits and is legible. All of this can be done on the design page with the greatest of ease and the lovely customer service team is always on hand to help. For great custom clothing brand labels layout, here are some useful tips.
Please note: We use a woven satin fabric and your labels are printed on, not embroidered. This gives you the greater advantage of excellent colour print, full brand logo and better readability for those small details. Be aware that folded labels are not sent pre-folded.
Due to the production process that we use, there is the possibility of some seconds or borderline cases of labels. When this occurs we would automatically include these with your order (free of charge) in the hope that you might be able to make use of them. We feel that this is a much better solution than sending them straight to landfill. If you notice these cases within your order, it's worth checking as it's likely that they have been sent as extras rather than as part of your order. You may also see small sections of printed cutting lines on your labels. This is due to the handmade nature of our process.
