Design Your Own Printed Sticky Name Labels
Personalized Sticky Labels in Self Adhesive Sheets
These beautiful, satin effect fabric labels will give your clothing, craft project , or anything else for that matter, the perfect finishing touch. The labels come in a single self adhesive fabric sheet, which measures 28" x 20". We have designed the product like this, so you have the power to have as many or as few labels as you want, in whatever size you want. This is ideal for designers, crafters, makers and artists alike, as we know just how many different projects can be enhanced with these bespoke sticky fabric labels.
It is important for any kind of label to do their job and stick, and our Sticky Name Labels are made to last! These durable labels can last for a long time in their original position, as long as the care instructions are followed.
Use your labels for a whole host of end uses; perfect for adding a branded label to your own clothing line, or attaching to the inside of a bag, to show off your logo. You could even use them to label kid's clothes, or to add a quirky touch to your favorite jeans or coat. The possibilities are endless with you in the designing seat.
Sticky Name Labels for Clothes
We find that these labels are perfect for finishing off a clothing line. If you are a designer, working hard on your own collection, then you need to show off your brand! These labels will add definition and branding, without taking anything away from fashion. Upload your logo, a signature or a design and make your collection stand apart from anything else on the rack. These labels are for showcasing and display, rather than everyday use, they aren't designed to withstand repeated laundering.
Made to Order
At Contrado, we print everything at our studio. Using vibrant, permanent ink, your sticky labels will be printed and sent to you fast. Every design we receive is made to order, with no minimum runs. Printed one by one, to ensure the highest quality, your labels are created just for you.
Cutting Out Your Labels
Our personalized sticky labels are hugely versatile, because they can be used for custom sizing. You can actually size them and cut them out as you wish according to your specific requirements. To help with this, you can add a light stroke around the label or add small dots in each corner, before uploading your design. You can then upload your artwork and make it the correct size using the drag corner feature; checking the dimensions in cm or mm. Center the label on the sheet, and press the 'basic' pattern repeat providing you straight lines of labels across the sheet.
The final result in the preview option, will show all of your labels in neat line, making it easy for cutting, once you have received them. If you are happy with the positioning of the design, simply approve it and proceed. To cut your sticky name labels for clothes, we recommend using a scalpel or a trimming blade. If these aren't to hand, then a very sharp pair of scissors will work well.
Please note: We do not recommend washing these labels in a washing machine. If they need to be cleaned, sponge cleaning is best.
Frequently asked questions:
Is there a minimum order for the Sticky Name Labels?Absolutely not! Unlike so many other sellers, we don't put pressure on our customers to order a minimum amount. Whether it is one sheet or a thousand and one sheets, the decision is yours. We want to make sure that you are thrilled with your labels, and we understand that you might want to try just one sheet first, this is why we do not have a minimum order requirement.
Are there other kinds of label options available?Every project is different, and they each require different kinds of finishes. Because of this, we offer several different kinds of label options, all of which can be customized by you! Our Custom Fabric Labels are one option, which come in different sizes and styles. You can choose from flat or folded, and the quantity. We also offer swing tags, made from Nappa leather.
What can I use my sticky labels for?These personalized sticky labels are so versatile, that you can use them for pretty much anything! Some popular options that we have seen with our customers include using them in crafting projects, such as labelling jars and scrapbooks, to customizing clothing and accessories (adding patches to jean jackets and bags is a very cool look) to creating a branded label for unique clothing lines!
You have the amazing designs, but do you have a unique range and place to sell?
All you have to do is design what you love and we bring your creations to life. We take care of the hand crafting and manufacture, the sales and the shipping. You the designer, control the products and designs from wherever you are, from home, the office, even on the go. Meanwhile the orders start to roll in and you get commissions fast.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi; this means that no resizing of your file occurs, preventing any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-colored or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colors and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which color model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual color is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each color with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colors within the image is more important choose RGB; this will reduce all colors equally to fit within our range.
For most of our fabrics there is no limit on the length of the fabric that you can order. We have a preview design window set up to 10 yds max to visualize the print, but that's not a print limit. If you'd like to order more, increase the quantity (x2 for 20 yds or x4 for 40 yds for e.g.) and then you can order as much as you'd like, with a built in automatic volume discount too. The maximum print width of each fabric can be found on the individual fabric pages or in our design interface.
Do I need to incorporate white space within my design if I want a border or some cutting space?
Yes, that might help you Always incorporate any extra space or borders into your purchased fabric size. We trim squarely around fabric samples and fabric prints, leaving approximately 0.22" white space. Cutting neatly on the line has an additional fee.
Do you print on fabric a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not; we like to test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation transfer paper to order, and if you have access to a heat press you can press your own fabrics easily.
What is the situation with material shrinkage?
Just like many fabric printing processes, there is the potential for shrinkage. Depending on the fabric, please expect and allow between 2-8% shrinkage which you need to plan for in your dimensions.
This percentage can vary from print run to print run and between fabrics, so we would advise to order a little more material than you require for your project.
Can I print on both sides of the fabric?
We do not offer printing on both sides of the fabric, as a lot of our fabrics are semi-transparent. As the customer, you can consider the effect of printing on both sides one of our fabrics and contact us, and we will get back to you if it's feasible.
Can I order labels in another fabric? Will you cut them like you do with the normal fabric labels?
At the moment no, our labels are all printed on the same satin fabric. We may introduce more in the future, but for now this is the best choice. The labels are all cut the same way. You can order the fabric of your choice and make the labels yourself, but we do not cut different fabric into label format.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colors and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
Sizing For Hemming And Shrinkage
We have a full Cut & Sew service here at Contrado, and are able to hem your fabric prints for a small additional charge. We create a small one- or two-fold hem that typically uses 0.22" to 0.75" (5-20mm) of material, depending on the thickness of the fabric. So, for example, if you want a finished piece of fabric that measures 100 x 100cm, you will need to order a size of 101.5cm x 101.5cm to allow for the hem (on top of that please also allow for shrinkage of min 2%). The thicker the fabric, the bigger the hem will be. You can choose to have your prints hemmed with either Black or White thread. On our silk and other light woven fabrics, one hemmed edge will be straight (vertically down the roll) and the other will be slightly rippled. The hemming material allowances are as follows and you need to make your print bigger to accommodate the hem:
- Light Fabrics (20-100gsm): For silks and other light fabrics, we use 6-8mm in the hem (2 fold), so overall width/height will be minus 0.5"/ 12-16mm
- Medium Fabrics (101-200gsm): For medium-weight fabrics that fray, we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (2 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 35-40mm
- Stiff/Heavy/No-fray fabrics: we use 0.5 - 0.75" / 15-20mm in the hem (1 fold) so overall width/height will be minus 1.5" / 35-40mm
All of these measurements are approximate and can vary. Including with shrinkage it can mean a fairly significant difference to ordered dimensions, so please plan your print accordingly. Depending on how open the weave is, our fabric can shrink anywhere from 2% to 8% with the average being 2.5%.
How Would you Like the Edge?
We have four finishing options for your fabric order:
- As it comes. We cut around your image, leaving a simply scissor cut, perhaps uneven white fabric border.
- Hem with thread. We can hem your fabric with a choice of black or white thread. Please allow 1-2 days additional production time. See below for information on how hemming affects the size of your print. We offer an overlock hem as well as a folded hem (one or two fold depending on the fabric) however not all fabrics are suited to both hem types. If you can see both options, it means both are suitable, and you will be able to chose whichever you prefer.
- Cut on the line. We will cut neatly on the edge of your design. This means that if you have a border around your design we will cut around that border, if your design takes the whole space of the fabric, then we will neatly cut around the edge of that image. Please be aware, when we cut along the line, we have to cut against the grain of the fabric. This is the standard procedure for fabric cutting. This means that with some fabrics, for example, Georgette and Mulmul, which have a slight wave in them, some fraying will occur. This is unavoidable, as the cut follows the grain of the textile.
All of our fabrics are cut manually by hand, with the utmost care and attention. If your fabric has a slightly uneven look on the edges, or a touch of fraying, this does not indicate a flaw in the textile. It is not always possible to achieve a perfect straight cut with certain fabrics, so please do bare this in mind when it comes to your design. If you have any queries or would like to know about our cutting methods in more detail, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to discuss them with you.
