Can anyone suggest a resource for custom made label that you use to sew in your purses, wallets, etc.  I really would welcome your help and feedback.  Thanks all,  Chris

Do a search on ebay or etsy for custom labels! Lots of great sellers Smiley

Yeah, I heard about etsy too, that they have them there. I did myself a lot of searching, where I can get those. Anyway, I've finally found this:


This is where I order mine. You can pick an amount, design, picture, color, etc. However, this is not the best site around for that. I'm sure there are better ones, I just didn't find them.

What I do is buy the printable fabric sheets from AC Moore - I think there is about 7-10 in a pack for about $10.99 (don't quote me though) what I do then is create my label using my word program and just print them on the fabric sheet. You are supposed to let dry then rinse under water until the water runs clear and let air dry. Then you cut out your label and sew on. I like them alot because you can get a lot of labels on one sheet. The only thing is the only color it comes in is a beige color.

I tried to find them online for you but wasn't able to. But if you have an AC moore near you go to the area where they have the iron transfers.

This is my label from the printable fabric:

Thanks, Hasna

Damn I wish something like that was available here..
Custom labels are so expensive and iron transfer stuff looks way too cheap in my opinion.

Thanks so much for the help, I guess I never thought of doing it myself.  I don't have an AC Moore but I will look around and see if I can find something around here.  Do you have a certain brand name you use?  Thanks again.

I simply use Printworks T-shirt transfers & iron them onto a simple sturdy fabric, cut & sew on. so far so good. (there are lots of companies that do the iron ons Printworks is decent & inexspensive)
To get them a good size I have used Word address labels - just inserted my logo...
