Iron-On Laundry Labels

Posted on

Whenever you or a loved one is living in a place with communal laundry, there is always the slight worry that things might get mixed up or lost in the wash. When an article of clothing gets lost in a larger facility like an assisted living center or a college dorm laundry room, it can be very difficult to track down. One way to solve this problem is to identify the items with your name. Iron-on laundry labels are a great way to avoid having to search through the lost and found, and they are customizable for adding some personal style to the process. When clothing has easy-to-read and durable identifiers, it can take the guesswork out of communal laundry, and let you have your clothes and bedding back clean and fresh.

Why Iron-On Laundry Labels?

Busy people, whether you are a college student or a caretaker, need a quick and easy way to avoid laundry room mix-ups. Iron-on laundry labels are simple to apply with a regular household iron, and are customizable with a range of colors and fonts. They’re perfect if you need to attach tags onto many different items in a short amount of time, because there is no stitching required.

Are There Different Choices?

These labels are discrete and meant to go on the inside of your clothing, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t still be stylish. We offer a wide range of label designs that can embody the simple, elegant, and/or classic look that you haven’t quite been able to put your finger on.

You can choose from a wide range of colorful fonts and styles, and from dozens of additional images so that your label blends in with your garment or reflect the wearer’s personality. We even have Fun Labels, which are wonderful for identifying children’s clothing at daycare and similar settings. Especially important for those with sensitive skin, printed labels are smooth to the touch and have rounded corners for additional comfort.

Quality and Durability

These labels are designed to take the headache out of identifying your clothing, so there is no further upkeep after application. Iron-on laundry labels are made of high-quality synthetic material, and they are durable and long-lasting. The ink will never run on printed labels, and embroidered labels will not stretch or fade. These laundry labels are made to last through the washer and dryer. You can rest assured in the high quality of our labels, because they are designed with you in mind.

These are just a few of the time and stress-saving options we have available, but we have even more options available. Maybe you would prefer tagless labels, or a laundry marker. We also carry unique laundry stickers. No matter your requirements, there is a high-quality option to suit your needs.

Labels for Handmade Items

Posted on

Looking for a finishing touch to your handmade items? We can turn your great idea into an affordable product with our personalized labels. Whether you sew, crochet, knit, or otherwise craft, our labels for handmade items are just what you need. Our attractive labels are the perfect combination of professional-looking labels with an affordable price tag. Nothing looks nicer or represents the love that went into a handcrafted item better than a personalized label.

Why Use Labels for Handmade Items?

Maybe you’re wondering why you would need personalized labels for handmade items, especially if you don’t sell your items. Anyone can buy a sweater in a store, but when you decide to make a quilt or crochet a baby blanket, there is care in every stitch, and people like to be reminded of that. Think of a treasured family photo album. When a picture has an inscription on the backs, everyone can fondly remember the people and memories from that day. Handmade items become treasured heirlooms passed down, and it’s special to feel the warmth and see the name of the person that made the item.

These labels also make great gifts for the creator in your life. You can take their personality into account and honor their creativity by creating a favorite label design or by choosing a couple different tag designs for various occasions. It’s touching to be appreciated for your handiwork, and enabling the artist in your life to leave a signature on each piece is a great way to show how much their work means to you.

Designer Labels for Business Owners

When you sell your handmade crafts in a store or online, it’s important to attach your name to the finished product and remind buyers of where they bought the high quality handmade good. Featuring your name and contact information on a discrete, stylish tag is a good way to draw in more business through word of mouth! Our woven designer labels are a lovely finishing touch, and a great way to represent your brand.

You can choose background color, font, and most even if you would prefer a sew-on or iron-on label.

Choosing a Label

It’s Mine Labels offers an easy design tool with endless options to go along with high quality labels. There are many elegant options for different labels for handmade items, and you can customize your labels according to what will suit the material you’re using. Most handmade items will pair well with our woven labels. Our woven labels are durable, beautifully embroidered with your choice of text, with choice of an image or attractive border. Classic woven labels come in sizes 3/8” and 5/8”, and designer woven labels at 1/2” and 1”.

How to Design a Label

To create your label, simply select the type of label you want, and follow the dropdown menus to customize your design. There are many choices in background color, font, and text style. Some of our different labels also feature unique options, such as more choices of accent images. We also offer dozens of different text colors and several select shades with metallic finish. There are many ways to show off your signature style and create the perfect personal label for your items, no matter what they look like! When you’re finished, you can even preview your design, and tweak it until it matches your vision.

We provide many examples of labels that others have created, so you can see for yourself the many styles and applications of these tags.

Custom Woven Clothing Labels

Posted on

Custom woven clothing labels can be an essential addition to clothing items and other apparel for any number of reasons. Major fashion labels, boutique clothing makers, merchandisers and even many amateur seamstresses are interested in the visual appeal and durable performance of woven labels. Not to mention senior living communities, schools, sports teams, kid programs, and institutional employers.

It’s no wonder that embroidering the design on a high-quality satin fabric makes a difference when it comes to clothing labels. Custom woven labels stand out with a dynamic texture, while also being comfortable to wear. The label looks great on the clothes themselves, while also promoting the fashion brand. When properly cared for, these labels can also last for generations as part of a hand-crafted item that is destined to become a family heirloom.

Types of Custom Woven Clothing Labels

What makes for a great custom woven clothing label? It depends who you ask and what you’re looking for. Do you want large, easy-to-read lettering? Do you want enough space for multiple lines of text? Are you looking for a few dozen labels or a few hundred? Do you want to include an icon or logo? Do you want to include a trademark symbol?

It’s Mine Labels offers several different types of custom woven labels that can best address your individual needs and priorities.

  • Classic Woven Clothing Labels: Made with quality materials that won’t fade or stretch and embroidered designs with plenty of visual appeal, our classic woven labels are available in 15 different styles as well as a huge combination of letter and background color options.

  • Woven Name Labels for Clothes: Not all clothing labels are about the clothing maker or fashion label.

These larger labels are available in 1/2 inch and 1-inch sizes to make the lettering easy to find. Because name labels are personalized, we offer a wider selection of ordering sizes. However, you’ll still get a better price the more you order. Consider not only how many personal name labels you need for right now, but also for the clothes and group settings in your foreseeable future.
  • Iron-On Woven Labels: The timeless look of sew in labels isn’t for everybody, especially when you figure in the convenience of iron on labels. The embroidered look of woven labels is what’s most important to a lot of people, whether it’s for their own personal clothes or for their clothing business. Attach more labels in less time and with less effort with an iron and ironing board. These labels are designed to be permanent and may be difficult to remove without damaging the clothes, but most woven labels are never removed from clothes anyway.

Especially if you’re not sure what type of label is right for your next project, It’s Mine Labels encourages you to look at all of our custom woven labels.

Custom Woven Tags and Labels

Posted on

Most often, custom woven tags are clothing labels that promote a designer’s brand or which personalize the clothing with a name label. These woven labels are permanently affixed to the clothing by being sewn in or ironed on. Hand-sewn or machine-sewn, woven clothing tags have an embroidered design with plenty of visual appeal. Combine your custom design with a professional look. Woven labels on a quality satin fabric are just what your clothes need to feel like they belong.

Various sizes, styles, colors, and fonts are available with It’s Mine Labels. Get a custom woven tag or label at a great price for your order size.

Clothing Hangtags

As opposed to labels attached directly to clothes, a more common type of clothing tag is the hangtag. Clothing hangtags are the labels that are attached to clothing, most often with twine or plastic ties, and are intended to be removed after purchase. These tags typically include the price, barcode, size, store name, or other descriptive information for the clothes. The temporary nature of these hangtags mean they’re usually made from paper, and the information and design are usually printed on.

Again, higher-end woven tags are usually only used for the sew in or iron on labels that are a permanent part of the clothing. One reason for this is the cost of embroidering text and icons on the labels, but there is also a limited amount of information woven labels can support. When trying to make price, size, name, and other information easily readable on a single label, print designs are best. This is also why laundry care labels are printed, rather than sewn on.

Custom Woven Hangtags for Luxury Brands

Pretty much all clothes and other apparel sold in a retail setting have hangtags. There may even be multiple hangtags for a single piece of clothing—one created by the retail store and one created by the fashion label. In some ways, luxury fashion labels are the exception that proves the rule when it comes to woven hangtags.

These custom woven tags are an opportunity for brands to generate free advertising and support their brand marketing. Clothing tags can have magnetic backing so they can be stuck on refrigerators. They can have simple instructions that show consumers woven tags can be sewn on to other items. Instead of just twine or plastic, these tags may also be affixed by a beaded metal chain so that they can be used as a keychain. Cultivating that sense of exclusivity and status for your brand isn’t easy, but it can also deliver tremendous value over time. More than just product development, companies want to create signals that the brand is a cut above. Custom woven hangtags are one way to accomplish this.

Custom Embroidered Labels

Posted on

Custom embroidered labels are among the highest quality products you can choose for clothing labels. Often used interchangeably with “woven labels,” embroidered labels are labels in which the design is sewn into the fabric itself, rather than printed on. (Sometimes, the term is also used to describe a special kind of thread that’s used to make the label stand out.) While print labels may use a custom design, embroidery creates a more dynamic effect that ensures the labels look like they belong as part of the clothing or apparel.

Whether you’re looking to promote a designer label or to put an extra special touch on your crafts and homemade clothes, start your search for custom embroidered labels with us.

Printed Labels vs Embroidered Labels

Different designs and applications require different kinds of labels. Embroidery isn’t the best choice for every type of label. Print labels are better for intricate designs and logos, especially for larger orders. This is done for cost control but also because the design can be copied exactly each time. On the other hand, embroidery can be a great choice for a high-end fashion house or for your personal brand or even just for handmade apparel. Don’t underestimate the ability of embroidered labels to give your clothes a sense that they belong.

Many clothing items will use a combination of different garment labels. Often, the laundry care label is printed, while the designer label is embroidered. Still trying to get your head around whether you want printed or embroidered labels? Check out the details for every type of custom clothing label from It’s Mine Labels.

Types of Custom Embroidered Labels

Whether hand-sewn or machine-sewn, these custom labels can usually be applied as sew on or iron on clothing labels. Iron-on labels are usually simpler and cheaper, but they can also be preferred for smaller and oddly shaped apparel such as hats and ties. More delicate and heat-sensitive clothing fabrics, like silk, must be sewn on. Read more about the differences and benefits of using sew on vs iron on labels.

What’s Different about Embroidery Thread?

Compared to standard sewing thread, embroidery thread is specially designed as a more loosely spun, two-ply thread. It can be fashioned from any number of materials including rayon, cotton, metallics, or polyester. The special thread design creates more of a sheen that helps the text and/or graphic design stand out. However, the lightly spun thread also creates a thicker line. For finer detail and when working with smaller labels, a more tightly spun sewing thread is preferred. For clothing patches and larger labels with visual graphics, embroidery thread can be used to great effect.

How to Design Custom Woven Labels
