Custom Printed Craft and Hobby Labels UK
When you've spent hours of your time perfecting your handmade piece, why wouldn't you want to add craft labels to give it a professional edge and to claim it as your own? With custom-made craft and hobby labels, you can create customised tags for crafts, clothes or for handmade items of any kind. Available in packs of 20, 40, 100 or 200, with no minimum order, you can order as many or as few as you like.
Our craft labels are available in either flat or folded styles. The folded labels have a closed edge and a cut edge, with the cut edge to be sewn into your products. The flat labels have heat-sealed cut edges, designed to be folded in at the ends to achieve a skin side finish. Sealed so that they become non-fray, the labels are sent with a +1cm seam allowance.
Craft and hobby labels are available in 12 different sizes, ranging from small - enough to fit a logo on it - to much larger so that you can add text, care instructions or even a personal message to your craft label design.
How Craft and Hobby Labels are Made
Your custom design is printed directly onto the woven satin, not embroidered, which gives you excellent colour reproduction and great readability for smaller details. Your print is penetrated deep into the fibres of the fabric using a deep infusion method, which results in a long-lasting design that will not rub or scratch off or peel away.
There will be a thin dark line on your woven craft and hobby labels, that is there so that they can be trimmed to size. This will be sewn into your product and thus shouldn't be visible in the completed item. Folded labels are not sent out folded, they are supplied flat for you to fold.
Due to the production process that we use, there is the possibility of some seconds or borderline cases of labels. When this occurs we would automatically include these with your order (free of charge) in the hope that you might be able to make use of them. We feel that this is a much better solution than sending them straight to landfill. If you notice these cases within your order, it's worth checking as it's likely that they have been sent as extras rather than as part of your order.
Wash 40°c. Iron at 30°C maximum. Low heat tumble dry. Exceeding these settings can result in colour bleed.

Really pleased. Easy to use website. Lovely quality, competitively priced and just what I was looking for. Will be a regular from now on.
Just as wanted. Did take a while to arrive because they had to reprint them twice due to quality control problems.
Very happy with the quality of my labels and the speed of delivery. I have already placed a second order.

Good quality labels. Look great on my finished patchwork quilt.
My labels are just as proofed on screen, it was a very easy process and I am over the moon with the actual product.
First time ordering. Great quality, fab service. Would order again.

I designed & ordered some labels for my wife to use in her new, dress-making hobby &... THEY ARE FANTASTIC! The design came out exactly as I'd intended & the items look really professional.
I shall return to Contrado for more of the same once this first batch has been exhausted.

Frequently asked questions:
How much can I fit onto the labels?The amount that you can fit onto your craft and hobby labels is dependant on the size of the labels that you have chosen. The smaller sizes are perfect for when you just want to add a logo, but we'd advise larger labels if you want to add more, for example, text.
If I make the text smaller, can't I fit more on?You can, however, we would advise making sure that you use a font size that is at least 10pt, or bigger, and that you use standard or heavy fonts instead of a lightweight or fine font, to make sure that your visibility is as great as possible.
Can I avoid folding the edges of the flat labels?You can choose to sew your flat craft and hobby labels for handmade items flat, however, if you are doing so to a product intended to sit on the skin, then we'd advise using scissors to cut the heat-sealed edges off, you will have a risk of fraying in this instance.
