Quliting Jetgirl Dutch Label Shop Woven Labels

Dutch Label Shop Review

I was contacted by the Dutch Label Shop and asked if I would be interested in trying their product. I received a discount coupon and am sharing about my experience in creating and receiving these woven labels.

I really love having custom folded labels to sew into the binding for the quilts I create. On one side I have my logo, and on the other I have some basic care instructions for the quilt.

I was a bit intimidated by the number of options presented by the Dutch Label Shop at first, but the website was easy to use. I chose to create a custom Woven Logo Label and I selected the Center Fold option. I selected the “Preserve Light Background” option because I chose a light gray background and a dark blue thread for the logo and text. The preserve light background option “weaves an additional layer of white thread into your label to vibrantly brighten the background color, and prevent shine-through. Choose this option if your label pairs a white or a light background with a dark or bright text, symbol or logo. Adding a second layer of white yarn will prevent the logo from bleeding, or shining through, into the background.”

I was not sure how the woven labels were going to do with my brand logo because it has some fine detail in it (the dashed lines of ‘girl’ and the rocket fins). Because of that, I wasn’t sure if I was going to need to modify my logo for it to weave well in the labels. When I was ordering my labels, I decided to add the option to pay for a Photo Proof with my logo as-is.

Getting the email with the preview of the labels definitely worth it! Not only did my logo print well, the detail is fantastic and I felt confident having the full order processed.

I really like that the labels come folded and with a very clearly visible seam allowance at the top.

Creating these labels with the Dutch Label Shop was an excellent experience. For those of you wondering about the file I provided, I created a single JPEG image that had the exact dimensions I was requesting for the label (in my case, 2.75″ tall by 1.75″ wide. I kept my logo and text 0.25″ away from the top and bottom (respectively) so that there was room for the seam allowance.

The quality of these woven labels is fantastic, and I think they are going to be a lovely addition to my quilts. There are many ways to label a quilt, but I am a big fan of folded labels like these. They are easy for me to remember to sew into the binding on the back of the quilt. What works best for you to label your quilts?

    Those are really cool! They turned out very professionally.

    Thank you for paving the way for this. I recently got some folded labels but the print was way too small. I have been wanted to give it a try again. I am glad you found this resource.

  3. Cindy says:

    A great option for labels. I make handwritten labels, which include the recipient, date, and maker.

  4. Thank you for the review! I’ll add them to my list of places to order labels from.

  5. Kathleen McCormick says:

    Very nice labels! I have some others that I ordered, but I do love woven labels and have a collection of some (too many from Brooks Brothers). I will be ordering a few for the special quilts!

  6. aquilterstable says:

    These look lovely! I use something similar… when I remember!

  7. Thank you for the review. I have thought about ordering these, but haven’t taken the plunge. I currently use labels that I have printed at Spoonflower on Kona cotton. I have to press under the sides when I insert into a seam, or I trim them and fold under all four sides when I topstitch them to an item.

    I make many quilts for Project Linus, and I have ordered from Dutch Label shop before-I love their colorful options for labels. I actually take a 5″ square of fabric, fold & press diagonally, then sew the Linus label and my label onto it. I then sew it in a corner of the quilt as I’m machine sewing the binding on, catching the unfinished edges to be covered by the binding. Finally, I just hand sew the folded edge! Dutch Label Shop has so many options for reasonable pricing, and the result is polished and professional. I like your labels-the logo looks great!

  9. Sylvia says:

    They look great! I keep thinking I need to get some of these at some point, but I’d still end up having to sew on a second label with the quilt title, so I’ve always managed to talk myself out of it. 🙂

    This review was really helpful. I have been making custom labels for each quilt but it’s becoming cumbersome so I’d like to streamline. I recently ordered some labels from an etsy shop that are cotton and I’m hoping to be able to customize with date & occasion by writing with a micron pen, but will still give me something essentially ready to add. I haven’t gotten my proof sheet back yet so I don’t know if it will work but I’m hopeful. Labeling is so important and I’m glad you continue to talk about it!

  11. JanineMarie says:

    These are beautiful. I haven’t labelled my quilts in recent years (instead, I quilt my initials and the year somewhere sort of unobstrusively), but I do like the idea of having care instructions on the quilt. I’ve been drawn to the labels I’ve seen on various blogs, but I really like the twill-like look of these. So professional!

  12. coollizzie says:

    Nice review, Yvonne, and I love your labels. I recently ordered from Dutch Label, too, and I’m very pleased with my order. Any time I need any others, I will use Dutch Label – good quality, easy-to-use website, and quick delivery!

  13. These labels look great! I have been meaning to get some sort of label for my quilt, I am going to have to check Dutch Label out, thanks!

    Your labels look great!!
    I have labels from Dutch Label. Love them. Great place to do business!!
    My daughter told me about them. She uses them also. :))
    Merry Christmas!

  15. VeronicaMade says:

    Your label looks like it’s 2.75″ tall. I just want to make sure I have this right when I order my own labels. Are you supposed to include the seam allowance when you order the labels?

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
