New labels have arrived!

I feel silly for getting so excited about these but I can’t help myself. I have been trying to figure out a good way to label my aprons without resorting to a cheesy (and generic) “Handmade Especially For You” label from the fabric store.  I futzed around with the embroidery feature on my machine and I didn’t like anything I made. Then I experimented with twill tape and fabric ink and hated that, too. I wanted a real label. I got on Etsy, searched under supplies, and found Worldwide Label. I hemmed and hawed about it for months until I finally ordered 300 text-only woven labels. They let you pick your own font and the labels are made in Hong Kong and shipped direct. After I sent in my design, the turn-around was about two weeks and I was happy with that. I was a little nervous ordering from a company so far away but they shipped quickly and the communication by email was swift and painless. Two thumbs up for Worldwide Label!

Now I can get started on my next big apron project. I’m partnering with an Etsy seller who is going to market some special-interest aprons that fit nicely with the theme of her store. More to come very soon!

This is my finished label. It measures 4cmx2.5cm and for a small label, I think the font is rendered nicely.

In the interest of full disclosure, I did not receive any compensation whatsoever for this glowing review, not even in the form of a discount off my order. I ordered and was very pleased with the service and wanted to share.
