Designing Your Printed Labels
A big problem you will face finding a labels supplier, is minimum run size for custom labels especially full color custom tags for clothing. If you only need a small quantity of fabric labels for handmade items, they often start at 1000 or 5000 labels and will cost a small fortune. You won't need that many at the beginning so why put that much cash into stock? Custom name tags also change. You might find you need to edit the design or adjust the tag name and that will be a terrible loss if you make a bulk order. Best thing to do is to make name tags in short run, especially useful as personalized fabric labels for crafts, handmade and knitted items. Our minimum quantity is 1 pack and we can print as little as 20 labels hand prepared for you. This helps you get it right in the long run. Use us for trying things out and we will help build your brand. We sell our handmade labels in packs of 20, 40, 100 & 200 labels (and we always add a few extras).
Please note that included in your design is a 0.4" seam allowance at the end of the label, where it will be sewn. Please do not use this area for a design, as it will disappear when you start sewing. Please also note the 0.12" bleed area in the design interface.

Label design tips
To achieve best results when you design your own custom fabric labels, keep your label design clean and bold. Do not use font sizes under 10pt and do not use lightweight or fine fonts. Always keep in mind the label size you are producing, for example, small labels only really have room for a logo. For care labels with lots of instruction text, choose a larger label. Make sure that everything fits and is legible. All of this can be done in our design page with the greatest of ease and our customer service team is always on hand to help. For great custom clothing brand labels layout, here are some useful tips.
All satin woven labels have a thin black or gray line so we can trim your labels to size. This will be sewn into your product so should not be visible in end use. A 0.4" seam allowance each cut edge on top of stated fabric label size
Please note, we use a woven satin fabric, but your labels are printed on, not embroidered. This gives you the greater advantage of excellent color print, full brand logo and a better readability for small details.
Our fabric labels have a permanent wash fast print. The material is strong, yet soft, and will easily last the life of your garment or accessory. To ensure your label stays in tip-top condition we recommend ironing at 86°C maximum. Cool washing, 104°F maximum. Tumble drying on low heat. Exceeding these settings can result in color bleed.

Good quality, really fast delivery
Great quality, so professional looking. I wish they came end-folded but it was not a problem. I want to do a re-order for more!
Clothing label for my range, and came fast too
ordered some cloth labels, and the print quality is quite good, and the turn-around time was amazing. One thing though, I did find the preview image was a bit more vibrantly colored than the actual printed tags, but I can imagine that's really hard to get to match.
My whole experience with Contrado was great from beginning to end. It was my first time purchasing printed labels on fabric and it turned out perfect. The quality of the label was great and the communication with me was outstanding from the approval process to the final delivery
Exactly as shown. These will be perfect for tagging my craft items I make in a professional way.
The quality of the tag is crisp and cleanly printed. Turnaround time + shipping state side went literally weeks faster than a state side competitor. Absolutely loved the experience!
My order was processed and delivered within 2 days, absolutely brilliant. I am just starting out as a new business , and I am so impressed with the prompt service
Frequently asked questions:
Is there only 1 option for the fabric label finish?We have 2 options:
1. Folded: Has a closed edge and the cut edge is to be sewn in. If you need a folded label this is ideal.
2. Flat: Has heat sealed cut edges. The ends are meant to be folded as we don’t achieve a skin side finished edge, it’s just sealed to be non-fray. All the flat labels, or custom fabric tags, have + 0.4" seam allowance added to each side (on top of the stated fabric label size). You can sew flat with no fold, and probably best if you scissor cut our edge off, but there will be risk of fraying.
Can my all of my care instructions fit on a small label?Small labels only have room for a logo. For care labels with lots of instruction text, we recommend opting for a larger customized fabric label. Take case in making sure that you have chosen the right size label, as scaling down the logo to fit can often make the text illegible.
Is there a minimum amount of labels you have to order?20 is the minimum amount. Unlike many other sellers, we don't have minimum order restrictions. The general order amount starts at 1000 labels, but not with Contrado! We offer minimums of 20 labels at a time. In addition to these versatile labels, we also offer swing tags. A tip to save time is to buy swing tags at the same time as buying your labels, and reuse the design graphics in our system.
