Does anyone have a favorite site they use to purchase personalized labels for FO /gifts?

I just placed an order with heirloomlabels.com

They take about 3 weeks to make and ship. I haven't seen the finished product, but the dealings I've had with them seem professional.

I also have searched on Etsy.com and there are a few on there. I can't speak to their quality, but they do have a rating scaled for each supplier, so that might help.

it is UK, but I liked it...

I wanted something paper you could fasten to the item, so I asked my sister to make one for me (she is a much better paper and pen artist than I am). If you wanted something like that, I think you could ask any graphic designer to design one for you to copy onto nice paper.

Joann's sells them in their stores here. They're made of embroidery with a line for you to write your name on it. A friend of mine is a new crocheter, and made some scarves for gifts. We found them at Joann's, and they were six in the pack for under $5.00 if I remember.

I haven't checked Joann's website, but they may be there too.

I find it much more fun to make my own. This site (http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/628455/custom_sewing_labels_craft_project.html) tells you how. It allows you to create labels that blend in or coordinate with whatever project you are labeling.

I also make my own using this method (http://www.grumperina.com/labelcontent.htm). They are easy to make and really turn out well!

that is a really cool idea...I am just sorry I don't have an inkjet printer anymore....well...not really...I love my laser printer....but none the less....iron on transfers are no longer an option for me...

I have never seen or tried them, but Brother makes a label tape that you can iron on. It works with their P-Touch label printers. You can buy the printers for $15 on up to a couple hundred depending on features.
