I can't even tell you how excited I am to have finally ordered some woven labels. I've researched them for 3-4 years. I've had the shop Worldwide Label saved on my Etsy favorites for over 2 years. I felt like it was ok to give in now. :)
I ordered the labels on January 17th and received the order on Friday, February 8th, so I feel like they processed and shipped them extremely fast, for coming from Hong Kong.
I ordered 300 of the text only labels. They cost $55.00 shipped, so about $0.18 each. It looks like they have an option now for 350 for $5.00 more, making them $0.01 cheaper per label. If you want to add artwork to the labels, it costs $15.00 more. My husband asked why I didn't choose that option, but it wasn't really worth the extra money to me. A cute lemon would be great, maybe something similar to THESE tags I made for some baby blankets, but again, I didn't feel like paying that much more, though it still is a good deal!
I seriously was so stoked about them when they arrived--my kids can attest to that! The only drawback to having the white labels with the dark lettering is that you can kind of see the gray threads through the label...but not a big deal to me. I'm happy knowing they won't fade.
And now I want to make tons of items and label everything! I made a maternity shirt (using a pattern--will post about later) the day after they arrived and sewed my first label on. I know TEN people who are expecting babies in the next few months!!! So I see a lot of baby blankets and burp cloths in my future. And anything that inspires me to sew is a good thing.
