Well....hopefully. Since starting Seedling Clothing in January, I've struggled a bit with how to do labels for my hand-printed baby clothing; I want something professional and polished, yet not overly time-consuming. Because I don't sew the clothing itself, it seemed silly to cut out the existing tags and sew in my own. There had to be a better way, right? I've been searching for something like a textile stamp for a while -- to no avail. I finally found this listing on etsy for retail-grade iron-on labels. The description sounds just perfect, so fingers crossed that they are equally good in person. Since the specs for the labels seemed so specific, I thought it best to hire a graphic designer (about $15.00 US for the design with unlimited edits from Color Fiesta Graphics, also on Etsy) to help with the layout. I feel happy with the results, though I will say it can be hard to convey specific ideas about spacing, etc. over email without feeling really really fussy.
I like the simplicity, and I love the fantail. I wonder though, if something more seedling-ish (ie the graphic from my grass design) would work better? Ah, well. I'm happy to have found a "for now" solution to the tag dilemma. And just in time, too. We'll be home in a week! Can't wait to get back into the studio.
