It is a fairly known fact that vintage wearers are also label nerds. We love finding pieces with labels, both because it usually denotes quality and because of the pretty fonts and little pictures. It's especially fun to find personal laundry labels, too, to hold a piece of history and know the name of a real person that enjoyed it. Labels give us insight into where clothing is from and the journey it has been on.
As a person that makes clothing, I love the idea of having my own labels, but oftentimes you have to order such huge amounts that it is unreasonable for me as a home sewist to buy them. However..... I discovered Wunderlabel! Wunderlabel is a custom label company, and they're fantastic for us home sewists.
If you hope to order your own labels, I also recommend using the "Enhanced Color" option, particularly if you have light lettering like I do. It helps prevent the letters from being tinged with the background color. I must say, I love my labels! I am going back and sewing them in my older projects, and I have a stack saved for future pieces. It just makes them seem so much more polished and legit!
Have you ever thought about making your own labels for your clothing? What would you want them to look like?
