MisFydKrafts First Homemade Tape Label

Last weekend I was excited & eager to try to make my on labels based on Laurraine’s Fabric Label PatchworkPottery’s tut that was posted by Aisyah Daily DIY in My Tinker Space.

My check list & plan was:
1) Buy an inkjet printer @ Tesco near my place
2) Buy some iron on transfer paper @ Midvalley
3) Buy some cotton tape @ Macy (plus some new yummy yarns…muahahhah)
4) Redesign the logo fit for the labels
5) Install printer & test print the labels
6) Print the labels & cut them
7) Iron on cotton tape

So I went to buy an inkjet printer @Tesco on Saturday. Hehe don’t have a printer after my previous one had broken quite some time ago :p. Well now I can do more printing work for my eraser stamps patterns too. πŸ™‚

On Sunday, I drive to Midvalley to buy some iron on transfer paper at one of the computer shop. Quite expensive! Well anyway I just bought it to try it off & I can get a lot of labels for one A4. Then I bought some cotton tapes, the white one that normally ppl use for sewing along with some new chunky yarns @Macy on the same day. Later I just managed to redesign my logo a bit & layout it several sizes on A4 format.

On Monday, I’ve installed my printer, printed my labels on the transfer paper then iron it on the cotton tape. Not all the label are ok as some did melted b’cos I ironed too long :p.

Anyway, here’s some photos of my first self made labels:

One of the melted labels caused by excessive ironing :p
Hope I’ll do better next time πŸ™‚

    Thanks Aisyah! πŸ™‚

    Aah bole dpt byk guna satu A4 but byk jugak la yg logo cair :p. Kene pandai budget iron. Hopefully next A4 transfer paper will be better.

    Kira cost pun, if sekeping A4 harga ard RM8 pun,bole bat 80-90 labels will cost ard 10cents or less each. Cotton tape tu plak tk mahal sgt pun tp ade putih je la yg senang jumpe.

    u gne software ape yek?
    then ms nk print tu we must revert it rite?

    Hi Lilly,
    Programme for ape ek? If nk design logo bole cuba GIMP or AAA Logo.

    If tk pandai sgt nk design2 nih bole je pakai powerpoint. Bat simply2 wording pun ok.

    Fyd normally pakai powerpoint for layout & inverting it (guna function flip horizontal under format->rotate) senang. =)

    Hope this will able to help you.

  8. MisFyd says:

    Yg Fyd tau wording or logo kene convert as object/picture baru bole invert.After that paste as object in Word.

    For Word 2007,
    Select object then cari tab 'Format'—> Click 'Rotate'—> Select 'Flip Horizontal'.

    If Word 2003 pun sama jugak, just cari tab 'format'.

    Hi Foxxy,

    Actually is one of the shop in the level that sells a lot of pc related stuff, near to the Gardens side. Sorry I can't really remember exact which shop because it was quite some time ago.

    Good luck on finding them =)

    Yg nih sy pakai cotton tape putih biasa ada kt kedai jahit tu tp lebik skit. Tk pernah cuba grosgrain or satin ribbon sbb iron on tu mentioned for cotton. But ada pernah tgk org cuba on satin & bole transfer jugak. Maybe you can try.

    But actually the label using iron transfer tk tahan sgt & akan worn out, if kene cuci selalu or handle lama sgt. Here's a few suggestion if you really wanna do label for your item that will last long,

    1) use cotton ribbon & stamp your brand name use fabric ink stamp.

    2) satin & grosgrain printing services (there are a few online, one that i've tried before is Kucin Purple)

    3) Woven label (something like the normal clothing label have a min order amount like 1000pcs)
