I have sourced my own, personalised sew-in labels from Cash's http://www.jjcash.co.uk/person.htm and they look pretty damn nice.

I ordered them at Wimbledon Sewing Centre but I know you can also order at John Lewis and it looks like you can do it from anywhere in the UK or the world online.

Don't get put off by the simplicty on site. You can choose wording, font, colour text, colour background, etc. I nominated 2 lines of text "Handmade by/[my name]" and got 30+ for something like 7 incl deliver UK.

Don't quote me on price, it's kinda vague!

i agree carolina, cash's tapes are really good value and they have an excellent customer service dept (john lewis got my order wrong and cash's sorted it straight away)

i'm actually looking for a company to produce some labels with my own artwork at the moment... if anyone's got any experience they'd like to share that'd be great  Grin

I am also looking for somewhere that can duplicate my design onto labels in the UK.  So any leads would be greatly appreciated.

At the moment I use a rubber stamp I had made up, using permanent ink and stamped onto calico, it's..................ok. Want something a little more professional looking now though.

ok, i've found a company that makes printed fabric labels, and they seem pretty good.

i found their address in the back of sewing world magazine. all you have to do is send a stamp and they send you a catalogue and - more importantly - samples.

they can also incorporate your own artwork.

I got some from Mini Labels last year - they were very cheap, have a good selection of styles, and arrived fairly promptly. I think their website is www.minilabels.co.uk

thanks for the link trudie - which labels did you buy? the satin woven labels look good but it's a shame they limit you to just a few characters per line... means i can't fit my web address on  Sad

Just been surfing and came across these labels...

They look quite good and are a different take on labels as they come on a ribbon type thingy Smiley

Just thought I'd share  Cheesy

I just had to share this i was so fed up with the prices people wanted for custom lables sooooo i looked on ebay and found this Great seller called ouchgirl (shes in canada)and sells custom printed clothing and bag labels for 5.16 for 50 labels  and shipping was an extra dollar to the uk. She will even help with the design of your label if you want, I am using my own design. This Rocks!!!! i havent recieved mine yet but we have had many emails back and forth regarding the lables she is helping me to make, she has been great. So i just had to let someone else know cuz to me thats a bargain!!!! Grin I will post my labels when i get them so you can all see and check her out on Ebay!!!!! Cool
