    Software for creating labels

    I know many of you print your own labels on inkjet printers. What software do you use? I will be waiting for your responses? Thank you in advance.

    I use EQ7. There's a lesson for creating the label as a small quilt, so I can put the same types of blocks around the label as I have on the quilt it's going on. I can also put the recipient's picture on the label, and text. The part I have trouble with is getting around to printing and attaching the label.

    I have a Mac and use Pages, importing clipart, photos and even little sketches to embellish.

    MS Publisher usually, sometimes Powerpoint or Word.

    There is a free project tutorial for this on The Quilt Show site. The one with ricky timms and alex anderson. You can print it out to keep it for reference.

    I used to use HP quilt Label maker but it quit working with newer versions of Windows operating software. I also used other publishing softwre. However, my experience is that even when printing on treated fabric washing seems to fade the inkjet printed labels much more than ones done with permanent fabric pens. I have an inket printed fabric label on a bed quilt that had an image and words and now all you see is a blob of color. I have another quilt that is older with a label made using permanent fabric markers and it is still legible. Both of these have been washed numerous times.

    I have done printed labels on fabrics treated with Bubble Jet set and on pre-treated sheets that I have purchased. No matter what is used to treat the fabric I still like the durability of the fabric markers/pens best.
