Labels: Branding Your Products

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 | Permalink

Image is everything.

Whether you are an up-and-coming designer trying to put your clothes on the market, or part of a church prayer shawl/knitting/quilting group spreading love, comfort, and hope, it is important to put your best foot forward.  With this in mind, remember that your label is like your business card everywhere your product goes.  When looking at your product, it is the label that is going to remind the customer who produced the shirt that they loved.  It is the tag that will tell the patient who crafted the prayer shawl that comforted them in a time of need.

At Thirty Seven West, we pride ourselves in doing everything in our power to ensure that your label is the highest possible quality it can be.  We provide labels in damask, satin, taffeta, and organic cotton to ensure that the label matches the quality and feel of your products.

Beyond labels, we also provide hang tags, care/content instructions, and size tabs…pretty much everything you need to take your product from the factory to the store.

We also have extensive experience working with prayer shawl groups, as well as knitting and sewing circles.  We enjoy working with anyone who is working to better their community.  We believe it is important to leave the world a better place than we found it.

All in all, we just ask that you remember that we will put in the same amount of love and take the same time and care in branding your product as you spent in creating it.

Best Always,

Thirty Seven West

DIY: Attention All Quilters (or wannabes)

We’ve had the privilege of providing our label services to some fantastic quilters.  While quilts can be stunning and many become heirlooms, the labor behind creating one is not for those looking to complete a DIY project on a Saturday afternoon.

But I felt I needed to post this for several reasons.  One, because if you’ve never talked to a quilter, you should.  They are some of the nicest and most helpful people I’ve ever encountered.  And some of the designs and work that are possible today with the use of software and sewing machines can transform a simple quilt into a piece of art.  But the main reason I decided to post this is because if you like what you see (and have used a sewing machine before), you can actually make this quilt… really.

Angela Yosten, of the Moda Bake Shop, was kind enough to give, literally, step by step instructions on how to create this beautiful quilt.  For full tutorial, see here.
