So, I was brainstorming up ways I can make cheap cheap cheaptags for my products. This is what I came up with.

I took some plain white fabric and ironed iron-on stuff to the back of it. So these tags are strickly iron on. then, I cut 8.5"x11" squares (the size of printer paper, i cut around a peice) Make sure you cut very straight so you dont mess up your printer. Then, I ran the fabric paper I just made through the printer and printed my designed labels onto them. They look professionally done. Now, its just regular printer ink so It would probably wash off if you ran it through the washer, but they will look professional.

I am willing to make a few for some fellow crafters. Well do it first come first serve. I will make some for the First five people to contact me wanting them.  Will make them for free.

What you could do instead is print a whole sheet of "labels" onto the iron-on stuff, iron the whole thing onto a sheet of fabric, and THEN cut out the labels. The iron-on will keep the edges from fraying and you only have three steps: print iron-on, iron, cut.

The only problem with that is that with the iron on stuff, the side that gets ironed onto the fabric is texture. I dont think the iron-on stuff would work like that. maybe i  dont understand correctly. I'd love it if youd explain. The brand of iron on stuff I use is heatnbond ultra hold. I just get it at walmart. do you have another brand in mind?

I've done what Crafty Chef said.

I take the iron-on labels that you buy in the office supply section, they come like mailing labels or sheets of biz cards.

I print what I want on them (making sure to use mirror image)

Cut them out.

Iron them onto the garmet, bag, or even fabric that is then sewn into the item.

I see. I never knew that you could buy that.

I'll have to look into it. Thanks.

Actually, it isn't iron on LABELS, it's T-shirt transfer sheets, I think that's what they are called.

One 8.5 x 11 in sheet that you print on, then cut, then iron onto whatever.

Just make sure to use the mirror image setting on the printer, usually under "advanced" settings.
