Laundry Tag Printables: Machine Wash Black Line Art to Print on Colored Paper


Instant Digital Download



These sweet, “pencil-sketch-looking, laundry or machine-washing care tags will let your customers know exactly how to care for their new, handcrafted items — giving them precise, visual and graphic instructions for laundering.

We've used the laundry and apparel industries' standard icons — adding a professional touch to your hand crafted item.

There are also matching "Thank You" Notes or cards for this set.

Specifically created for hand-knitted, crocheted or hand-sewn items. These tags tell your customers to: “Machine Wash, (or Hand Wash—depending on which set you purchase) Cool Water, Do Not Wring, Do Not Bleach, Lay Flat to Dry, Do Not Iron”

This special set is simple black line art so that it can be printed on any colored paper. You can print these on:

• Recycled paper of any kind.

• Traditional, white business-card stock for an elegant look. You can also color these in with light markers. Adding a very personal touch.

• Print on any color of paper that you’d like. If you have a preference in your business stationery, you can use it here as well. Brown kraft paper, recycled “rough” papers, colored card stock or parchments in any color.

• You can also print the paper first with the color that you’d like. Really customizing them. Then print the tag on top of that. Very nice!

There are five different styles, with two digital “tags” for each style. Each laundry care tag is 2 x 3.5”. The exact size of a business card.

The professional layout of the artwork can be used for printing on prefab, perforated business card stock papers. They can also be printed on a good quality paper stock and hand cut.

• One (1) PDF file containing ten graphics. Two each of 5 styles. Set up on the Avery #8871 or #8371 template. To print on pre-perforated stock or cover stock for hand-cutting.
• Five (5) PNG files, 300 dpi for individual use.
• One (1) Word Document Avery #8871 or #8371 template to use for setting up your logo, personal note, or coupon code for return customers on the template. To print on the backside of the tags.
• One (1) PDF set of Instructions for printing a sheet. To answer your questions in advance.

You will receive a digital file in .ZIP format. Your file will be available for "instant download" once your payment is confirmed.

(Please note that this is not an offer for printed tags, but is a "print-it-yourself" set of digital files.)

• Enjoy these for any use as an individual or business.
• Please do not re-sell as digital files

Enjoy! ... thank you.

Blacks, dark browns, purples or grays can over-saturate the fabric and bleed into the lettering. I am happy to "tweak" your logo or image to change or eliminate the background color. Oversaturated darker colors may fade in multiple washings.

The fabric label materials are considered "fray resistant" and not fray proof. We cannot guarantee that under certain treatments and laundering conditions that the fabric will not begin to fray. Wash in cold water and use liquid detergent. We recommend using a product like Fray Check or Fray Block on the exposed edges of your tags if you are concerned with how they will wash.

The pigments are pigmented inks and not dye-based inks. Pigmented inks are colorfast and especially formulated to be fade-resistant, water insoluble and wear resistant. Labels may be affected by exposure or contact with chemicals or acids of various kinds.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

The labels are 100% woven cotton and we consider them to be fray resistant but not fray proof. Even some "fray proof" labels can fray. You can make them fray proof with a product like "Fray Check" or "Fray Block" to seal the edges. We highly recommend it, even for baby items. It works great! If you're sewing around all of the edges, you don't need to add anything. Tip: Use decorative stitches around the edge of the labels or cut them with pinking shears for a special "look."

Soaking labels in harsh cleaning chemicals may affect the inks.
