Custom, organic, handmade - fabric labels for every need

I like to sew. I picked it up quite some time ago and sewed mainly for my family, until they had too many things to justify making more.

To fund my fabric habit, I started selling my handmade clothing on Etsy. One of the first things I discovered was that to sell legally in the United States, I'd need specific information printed on fabric labels for each garment. The requirements for children's clothing are even more stringent!

I looked around online but couldn't find any labels that were 100% cotton, easily customizable, and had low minimums - so, over the course of a few years, I taught myself how to make the labels I was looking for.

They're like nothing else on the internet; soft, durable, natural, infinitely customizable, and produced without harsh chemicals.

I love developing new techniques and designs as well as the physical process of hand-making each sheet of labels; what I love more, though, is being a (very) small part of so many clothing lines and businesses.

I've been on Etsy for quite a while, so if you have any questions about labeling requirements in the US or how to run a shop here, I'd be happy to help you out. Just send me a message.

This fall, my sister Melissa and her husband Kyle set up a satellite operation in NYC. Melissa is awesome at social media and marketing. She runs our instagram account (as well as managing the daily details of business operations) and they both fill orders from their apartment in Astoria. Kyle's a fantastic graphic designer with a ton of industry knowledge about printing processes; soon we hope to use this new talent to expand our product offerings and streamline production time. They're also professional videographers: look for videos in listings and social media soon!

By the way, Anita Waters of https://www.etsy.com/shop/PhotographyByAnita does a lot of our product photography, she's super awesome.

Frequently asked questions
How do I send you my images?

You can attach a file to a conversation through Etsy via the little blue "Attach image" link at the bottom right of the conversation box. We prefer .png/.jpg/.pdf.

Can I split an order into more than one name or design?

Yes, we're will print up to three names or designs per order, even for a half sheet. Each label must be the same finished size, though.

Will you make me a digital proof of my labels before printing?

Sure! Send us a conversation requesting a proof, and we'll make you as many digital proofs as you need to get your labels just right. A caution, however: we're not graphic designers. If you need more complicated design work than our skills allow, we recommend WinchesterLambourne (https://www.etsy.com/listing/68964724/custom-label-design-label-graphic). She's nice and very talented :)

Are reprints any cheaper? Do you have a bulk or wholesale price?

Yup, reprints of labels cut to size are $21 per sheet, a savings of $6 from the first order price. Our bulk discounts are 10% off for 10+ sheets, 20% off for 20+ sheets, and 30% off for 30+ sheets.

What certification does your organic fabric have? Are the labels CPSIA compliant?

All of our fabric is GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified. We can provide a certificate on request. The labels are all CPSIA compliant as well.

Are your labels cut into individual labels, or do you send them as sheets?

We have one listing for uncut labels (it is $10 cheaper than labels cut to size) and an option for uncut labels in a few other listings. 98% of our listings are for labels are cut to size. We are happy to make any of our labels as uncut sheets, though. If you want to order a listing as uncut instead of cut to size, just purchase the uncut listing and tell me in the notes section which designs you want us to print (as well as any other details, like font, text, and label size).

Do the labels fade or fray?

There is a limited initial fade, as with all labels printed on cotton. It's kind of like washing a new pair of blue jeans. After that the color holds steady, and labels are still legible for several years. The edges of sew on labels will fuzz slightly but will not unravel, as they are printed on the bias of a very finely woven cotton. If you want a completely clean look, you can dip the sides of the labels in fray check. Iron on labels do not fuzz.

Do iron on name tags come off in the wash?

- No. We use an industrial quality iron on backing, and these tags do not come off.

Can you print any design as sew on or iron on labels?

Yes, and it's the same cost. Just put the request in the notes at checkout.

Customs fees or VAT on international orders?

Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply.

If you're in Australia, Etsy collects the VAT and remits it for you. Most European countries have customs fees and/or VAT, even for relatively small orders, sometimes with an extra handling fee. We cannot pay this tax for you or change the item value on the customs form.
