Where do you get your labels?
I add a "made During Quiet Time" label to nearly every project I make. The labels that I use are sent to me flat. I iron them in half and then stitch them into the seam of pouches...
coasters...pillows, quilt bindings, everything! And the single most asked question on my blog is "Where do you get your labels?"
My labels are purchased from the Custom Couture Label Company on Etsy. Not only do I love their labels but they are work at home moms from NH, just one state over from me. I like supporting other moms who are home doing what they love while caring for those they love.
I just recently reordered labels and they have changed a little bit. The labels I had ordered in the past were 100% cotton. At the moment, they are unable to print those but you can still order your own labels sheets of that material and print them at home if you have an inkjet printer. You can find those here. The labels that are now produced on matte polyester satin. You can purchase them using this listing. My labels measure 1 3/4" square and fold along the centerline so that the text can be seen on both sides (which is great for pouches or potholders where they are sewn into an outside seam). If you want a similar layout, just let Dianna know as she has my order on file and will be able to help you achieve something similar. Dianna told me that the new satin labels are even more popular with her customers than the labels that they had been printing. I think that the addition of labels like these really adds a professional look to your projects. And I just noticed that there is a sale going on now through January 2! You can get 20% off your order by including the code "newyear."
The Custom Couture Label Company will be listed in my sidebar along with my other wonderful sponsors for awhile in case you can't find this post when you are ready to order labels for your projects. Dianna is wonderful to work with. She is prompt and provides a label proof before printing to catch any miscommunications or typos in time. I highly recommend the Custom Couture Label Company!
