Awhile ago, I posted about a company which will print custom labels for you. But if you’re handy and either finish your own needlepoint or have a finisher who will do this for you, you can make your own labels, using this fantastic on-line tutorial.
These labels use colorfast fabric made to run through your printer and whatever you design.
I know from experience (I spilled a glass of water on some print-outs yesterday afternoon, that Epsom printers using Epsom cartridges really are colorfast (they were soaked and didn’t run a bit).
I also keep thinking about what a nice bit of advertising this would be for finishers, I’ve never gotten a piece back which had a label on it, but most of the pillows I buy have little labels like these sewn into back seam. What a nice way to remind the recipient or to let your customer know where to have more items finished.
Since one of my goals next year is to finish lots of stitched stuff from my stash, I think I’m going to try this myself.
