A key part of developing a brand is to include tags or labels in the clothing that you sell. This adds value to the item in the customers eye and adds a level of collectability to the product. I make my own tags using white ribbon and printable ┬áiron on transfer paper for dark t-shirts. Do not use the transfer paper for white t-shirts, it requires you to print a mirrored image and won’t work for this project. There are links below to the products on amazon, I’ve included these links so that you can see exactly what I’m using. You can buy this sort of paper through Amazon or at Wal Mart, Target , or an office supply store as well.


If you have any questions just post them below, I’ll try to get back to you asap with an answer.

  1. I can get the video of this to load on my computer. Do you have a text version of this topic?

  2. Hi,

    Unfortunately we don’t have a text version.

    The video is actually hosted on Youtube, and embedded here on this post, so you should be able to watch it – if you can generally view Youtube videos. I’d guess it has something to do with your internet safety settings. You can try to watch it directly on Youtube at the following link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gh0mmAjVZxc&feature=player_embedded

    Let us know if this solves the problem.

  3. This is a great idea–I have tags professionally made for my regular size clothing, but they are a bit too big for doll clothes…I also am planning on changing the brand name up just a bit for the doll clothes, so now I know how to make the smaller tags. Thanks for figuring that one out for us!! Really helps.

  4. Hi.
    Again, you two have figured it out, & then SHARED! This looks like a terrific way to get labels. Thanks, Chris

  5. Jason and Cinnamon you guys make a great team!

  6. oh this is very cool, I’ve been trying to figure this out for awhile. THANK YOU

  7. I just made my first label. I’m disappointed because the label is paper adhered to ribbon, and looks like paper. I was under the impression that the logo was being printed on the ribbon, but it’s printed on white paper and that printed paper is ironed on top of the ribbon. I’m not happy with the way it turned out.

    • Hi Vicki,

      If you don’t like this method, I’d suggest you look on Etsy. There are sellers there that will make very nice labels for you.

      Hope that helps

  8. I appreciate this link very much! It looks simple enough to do myself, which is a big selling point for me. As usual, your presentation is clear and concise; even for a novice user like me. My computer skills are rather archaic. I’m working on fixing that problem. In fact, I’m considering the purchase of a new computer to use as I launch my new AG doll clothes pdf pattern design business. (My goal is to be able to sell my design under the Pixie Faire label one day in the not too distant future. But I’ll need a more polished, professional look than I currently have.) Do you recommend Apple computers to run photo shop? Is the Photo Shop package I’ll need included in the current release of Adobe Creative Suite? If yes, would I need any add-on packages to successfully complete this task? (I hope I’m not asking too many questions. If I am, feel free to ignore me. I don’t really know all the ins and outs of blogging etiquette yet.) Another rookie question: Will Photo Shop also work to convert rough, hand drawn patterns into a professional pdf pattern layout; or will I need an even more expensive and complex pattern designer like Adobe Illustrator, (which, I’m not afraid to say, is a daunting proposition to me with limited computer skills)? Thanks in advance for any clarification. I am just blown away by your willingness to help individuals trying to break into small business. Thank you is a totally inadequate response to your generous spirits. God bless.

  9. You two are amazing. You live Matt 5:18 and John 15:8. God bless you both for sharing with so many.

  10. I do not have Photoshop so is there another program I can use?
