About

Border City Quilts - Handmade Modern Quilts

Hi! I'm Christina Adams and I started border city quilts to share my passion of creating beautiful baby quilts and personalized fabric labels. I am a self taught quilter with an educational background in human anatomy. In addition to running my etsy shop full time, I also run a local long-arm quilting business.

Although I started border city quilts primarily to create baby quilts and blankets, I have slowly transitioned into focusing on fabric labels exclusively. I enjoy designing and making fabric labels from start to finish; from the graphic design, the textile printing, and the finishing of custom labels. Creating new designs and helping clients bring there ideas to life keeps me busy and satisfies my passion for creating!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy looking around!

Personalization

Label proofs are custom made according to the text printed in the “personalization” or “notes to seller” box at checkout. Your information will be formatted with the font and designs from the purchased listing. Please let me know if you would like changes to the design; simple text changes, fonts, and colors can usually be accommodated!

Your proof will be sent to your etsy convo’s (email for guest accounts) according the the current turnaround time (Usually 2-3 business days)

Custom Orders

All labels in the shop can be personalized with your information and simple text, font, or color changes can be made with no extra charge. However, I am no longer offering custom design services at this time.

I can also print your logo onto a label --> https://rebrand.ly/logolabel

Iron on Labels

Iron on labels have a no sew, permanent adhesive applied that needs about 2-3 seconds of heating with a hot iron to bond. Make sure to let the label fully cool before moving the fabric. I know it is tempting to check the corners, but please wait until the adhesive has set. If the corners still peel up a bit, iron for about 3 seconds again and cool. The iron on labels are best for flat materials like cotton, fleece and flannel. They will work on knitwear as long as the weave is not too bumpy and the yarn can take the high heat without melting.
I have had excellent results with this product, but you may need to perform your own test-runs for best bonding results to determine pressure, temperature and time.

Logo or Artwork Printing

Your print ready logo or artwork can be made into a single label or a set of labels. Just send me a convo with the size of the label required and your image.

High resolution images (300 dpi) are best for a clear image when printed. Cotton labels can be printed in full color (CMYK color - no metallics).

Label Proofs

After your order is paid for, a digital proof will be sent to your etsy convo’s (or email if you used guest checkout etsy according to the turnaround time (usually 2-3 business days). Please carefully check the proof and respond with requested changes or approval within 4 days.

Labels not approved within 4 days of sending proofs will be shipped as (any reprints or changes will be subject to a fee). I hate to ship without your approval, so please check your email :)

Care Instructions

Labels are printed onto cotton fabric and backed with a layer of fray resistant lamination. It is recommended to wash items with labels on delicate cycle and tumble dry low.
