Thanks very much for the tutorial...just comes at exactly the right time for me.  Do you know any online source for this heat & bond ? Our fabric stores here in South Africa is pathetic..don't carry stuff like this at all...
If you cant find a source with reasonable shipping let me know I have an extra sheet I havent printed yet. I made a sheet of labels already and i won't need to print  another sheet for a while, one sheets alot of items for me to make. I am sure one envelope to sa wont cost much...Mars

Thank you so much for this tut!  I've been trying to figure out a simple enough tag to use/make and this does the trick.  I have made my labels with my printer, but used the printer fabric sheets and they're OK, but not great.  This has inspired me to try something new and the dafont.com website is great, too.  Thanks again!!  Cheesy

Great idea and great tute - thanks!

I have a question, though - can the labels go through the wash, or do they fade?  I bought some labels online and they fade in the wash, so I can't use them on the clothes I make, just on my bags.  I'd love to have an easy way of making washable lables!

This is my question as well. I have also bought custom labels online, online to find they fade greatly and even fray a little after the very first wash.

how do you solve the problem of the ink running if it gets wet? I saw a post that a girl did for a quilt and she said that she used shoe sealer or something like that.  I've been wanting to do something like this, Thanks for the Tute!

Thank you so much for this tutorial... wish I'd seen it before I spent money on labels...

I love this tutorial!! I was wondering, though, what you did to keep the ink from smearing? I've used it to make labels, but every time they get a drop of water on them, or sweat, or anything, the ink smears horribly! How do you prevent that?

Wow, this is amazing advice! Thank you so much for the step by step! I would have never thought of the t-shirt iron on!

Your labels and cards look amazing!
