Custom Labels for Handmade Items
A professional custom label makes all the difference.
Many of our customers are start-ups and homemakers who are in pursue of their dreams of running a small to medium-size apparel/clothing line.
They start by creating their items at home, and the manufacturing process of these items varies from customer to customer: some are seamstress, knitters, crocheters, quilters.
The range of items they produce varies as well. Some create clothing for babies, kids, pets, others prefer to make accessories and decorative items such as purses, quilts, pillows and curtains, and many more.
Independently of the size of their business, they are all looking for two things: Success and Minimize Expenses. Sometimes these two goals go hand in hand, but sometimes they just don’t.
Such is the case of marketing and branding expenses, and this includes adding custom designed clothing labels, which are then permanently attached to their products usually by sewing them onto them.

Labels for Quilts
Set yourself apart by designing your Quilt Label with us today.
Custom made quilts have hit the mainstream with quilters joining this form of self-expression and artistry at all ages. It is no longer only created by the family matriarch to become a family heirloom; it’s now a thriving business as so many are seeking to have a little homemade comfort of their own.
Why Do My Quilts Need Labels?
With so many crafters now flooding this sector of the textile industry, it’s important to find a way to set yourself apart.
Every individual quilt is a tremendous amount of work. Could you imagine putting all of your efforts into planning a wedding, then not giving people the information on how to get there by not sending an invitation? That’s a little bit like putting the effort into your quilts without letting people know how to get their own!
Adding a custom woven label is also the perfect finishing touch. Custom labels add a professional element and a distinction that your quilts are of superb quality.
What if I am Just Making Them for my Family and Friends?
We have quilters all of the time who know they are not going to make 100 blankets; and that is our minimum quantity for ordering labels. Why do they order anyway? Usually, it’s because they wish to leave a legacy by commemorating the quilter. Personal information on the label helps generations to come know the history and the hands that created their Heritage Quilt.
Think of all those quilts in your linen closets that, by word of mouth, you have learned were hand made by ‘a great aunt’ or ‘a great grandma’. Imagine if those blankets each had a label on them that actually stayed with the blanket as long as it remained a part of your family for generations to come. It’s actually quite a gift to give the recipient; and one that will carry on for the life of the blanket.
Which Type of Label are Right for My Quilts??
Once you have decided to design and create a custom woven label, you may wonder what your options are.
What is the best type for me? This is where we come in and offer our expertise.
Damask woven labels are the best option for quilts. They are a type of woven label made of high quality materials that won’t look out of place. Damask woven labels have a handcrafted look that is ideal for the style of any quilt.Damask woven labels are available in just about every size or color. Multi-colored (up to 8 thread colors) designs lend themselves very well to the look of a quilt.
The other item to consider is the size of your quilting labels. Because quilts are generally larger pieces, you can create a large label that can contain a lot of information. The size will be up to you as it will depend upon what you want on your label.
Do I Really Need Professional-Looking Woven Labels?
Woven quilt labels truly are like an artist’s signature on a painting. All artists sign their work; it’s time to sign yours!
This lasting tribute to the creator is something every homemade item should have. Most quilters don’t stop with quilting. They also tend to create a wide variety of things they enjoy selling, giving or displaying. Whatever the project is; a woven label will provide that finishing touch.

4 Tips For Ordering Custom Labels For Handmade Items
1. Woven vs Printed: Choose the Right Style for Your Product
Although there is not a single solution that will work for your specific product, there are certain general rules as to which type of label should be used, based on material, frequency of use, style, size, type of logo, method of application, and more.
Choose Woven Clothing Labels if:
- You need a durable label, ie. Your product will be washed frequently, such as baby blankets.
- You like the looks and feel of it, industry- standard.
- You would like your label to be anywhere from 1/2″ to 17″ in size
- Your logo doesn’t have text smaller than 7pt AND it doesn’t havegradients.
- You would like to either sew them in or iron them on.
Choose Printed Clothing Labels if:
- You DO NOT need a durable label, ie. Your product will be washed infrequently.
- You like the looks ande feel of it, ie. You want your label to be satin soft.
- You would like your label to be anywhere from 3/4″ to 17″ in size
- Your logo doeshave text smaller than 7pt AND it hasgradients.
- You would like to sew them in. (Iron on is not recommended as it could possible melt the ribbon)
You can use Printed Clothing Labels if your items are not going to be washed frequently.
Woven Clothing Labels will last longer and will resist washes, won’t fade or fray.
No matter what style do you choose, make sure they are professionally made, after all, they are one of the first details your customers will notice.
Make sure you let your Sales Rep. know what type of product you will be applying your labels and how are you planning to attach them.
2. Bold & Simple vs Intricate: Using The “Right Design”
Your products are not the same as your fellow crafters, why should your labels be?
Although we have made a large number of labels for handmade items for our customers, we want you to find your own style…
Go ahead, get inspired here and then make it your own 🙂
But please come back and let us know which one is your favorite 🙂
TIP#4: Let’s Talk About Colors…
Talking about colors and tastes can be a complex subject.
In the end, it is your brand, your image, your colors.
So think about how do you want your customers to perceive your products: classic, elegant, hip, modern, cute, strong, energetic, unique?
Do you want your label to: stand out, blend in, match….?
Do you know how in life sometimes you have to compromise?
Well, one of the greatest advantages of woven labels is that you will not have to!
You can easily create 2 (or even 3 or 4) versions of your label by just switching colors!
- Keep the same design
- Choose a different color combo
and for a nominal fee, you will have custom labels that will match even more styles and will give you more flexibility with your business image.
