Default Labels for Donation Quilts

I've been assigned the interesting task of developing a printed label for the quilts our group donates to various causes.

Do you have a brand that works well for you and the outcome is good? Am very disappointed with the type I'm making. It says to spray with Scotchguard and it is a mess.

Have thought about using my Janome and stitching the label. Was not pleased with the lettering. Maybe I'm being too particular but really want them to look nice.

Thank you in advance for your thoughts.

Do you have a local tee shirt printing co.? They could print multiple copies on a yard of your fabric. Or perhaps Spoonflower could do this. I don’t know what the cost would be for either.

Will there be any personalization to each of the labels?
Or all are the same?

Design them on the computer, then upload the file at Spoonflower and have them print it.

Make sure you check that the charity you're donating to doesn't have rules about the labels. I'm pretty sure QOV does.

I make Project Linus Quilts and someone somewhere along the lines told me not to put a personalized label on them. Instead I had little labels that I had made that say "You Are Loved" and has a small red heart. No one has objected to them yet.

I get different types of labels from Wunderlabel:
Our long arm guild quilts for the other quilt guild. I think those labels just say who the quilts were quilted by.

Our guild has labels made that only say the quilt guild name on it without individual names. We check each charity to see what their policy is.

I use Wunderlabel labels also. Mine say, Made with love by (my name) and then my town. I started using them when my Bee purchased standard labels for their Contribution Quilts. Theirs say, Made with care by The Red Hens.

What is the reason for not labeling charity quilts?
