Instant Digital Download

These laundry care tags have special sentiments for those special gift giving occasions. There are ten different slightly snarky comments about the gift from ten different lovely retro, fifties style smiling ladies. There are also ten tags with blank speech balloons so that you can fill them in with your own text.

Sentiments Included:
I made this and you will like it.
Yes, I made it myself. Really.
This was more difficult that it looks.
There are patterns to follow you say?
I'll never put myself through this torture again.
Don't wear this around my sister,
A lady at work makes these,
I never thought I'd get this done.
I saw one just like it at the mall.
Can you believe I used up all my scraps on this?

Great as gift cards/tags as well. These tags have an especially professional look when you add laundry care icons recommended by the Textile Industry Affairs Organization.

These new tags allow you to print the wide selection of laundry icons on the back and then put a check mark indicating the instructions that apply to your craft item.

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. Feel free to send them to your favorite printer or printing site.

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.
