Topic: want labels... can't decide what looks best...  (Read 1232 times)

So I've decided my purses need labels.

I've also decided that namemaker.com has the cheapest prices for small quantities (I have no use whatsoever for more than 100 labels... at the moment).

But that's about the extent of my decisions. Please help!

Here's my dilemma - I'm debating between a simple woven label and a printed satin ribbon (Most of my items have ribbon accents, and ribbon belts are my main sellers... I thought it could tie it all together). My only worry about satin ribbon is how smoothly it will sew onto the bags, and if it might fray?

I am also having problems with colors. While I'd like to get something bright and colorful, I don't want my label to "clash" with purses made from different colors. I was thinking of getting a 5/8" or 3/8" ribbon... either sage green with white lettering or a powder pink with brown or maroon lettering. If I got woven I could get white with brown lettering or powder blue/pink with gray lettering? See my dilemma? I can't decide what colors will look best, or if I should go with something generic (white with black, or something similar) so it won't clash with my bags.

Any suggestions as far as material/colors go? I'm horrible with decisions like these and you guys are always so helpful! Thanks! Smiley

Well I think you should go for the woven label. I wouldn't be too concerned about the colors clashing with your designs. If you have a logo use the colours in your logo. You could also use the colours on your website. Its all about creating your brand.

If it's sewn inside a purse, on a neutral lining then it shouldn't look too bad.

I agree with everyone on here--don't worry about the colors!  I would love to see a new, funky looking label on something I own, and it would actually HELP brand you.  I can just hear it now "Ooh!  This lable is bright and funky like my friend's purse!  Did you do that one too?!  I have to have one!"

It's something that people will notice, and remember.

It's late, and I've been wondering...  How I can stay awake so long and miss so much...

I ended up getting light blue woven labels with white writing. I redid my website, and those colors go well with the new layout. I'll post a photo of them when they come in. Smiley Thanks for all the suggestions!
