  • In todays DIY video I'm going to be showing you how you can make your own custom branded

  • labels to go inside blank tshirts like this one here. I've got a little t-shirt company

  • called Liner Note Kids that I started when I was in university and I make t-shirts and

  • sell them on a print-to-order basis so I only make a t-shirt when I get an order come in.

  • That means I don't have to invest a lot of money in a lot of stock and keep a lot of

  • merchandise in my flat but because of that it's really hard to get your t-shirts custom

  • branded. Companies just don't do that on a one-off basis. So I've figured out a DIY way

  • to do it myself using a piece of ribbon and some transfer paper, and I'm going to show

  • you how to do that.

  • The first step is obviously to design your label. I did this in Adobe Illustrator just

  • because that's what I'm comfortable with but you can use whatever software you prefer.

  • I measured the width of the ribbon i was going to use and laid out a box that was that size,

  • and then I included my logo, the size of the t-shirt, and on the back I had a little line

  • about the company and a URL.

  • With clothing labels there are varying laws depending on what country you're in about

  • what information HAS to go on it. Like you have to include washing instructions, the

  • makeup of the fabric and the country of origin, and I didn't want to mess with any of that

  • and that would just involve printing too fine a detail onto my transfer paper so instead

  • I decided just to leave the original label in for that and cover up the brand label from

  • the blank t-shirt.

  • because we're going to print this on transfer paper you have to make sure your design is

  • reversed before you print it. I know that's confusing but it will end up the right way

  • once you have heat pressed it onto the fabric so just go with me here. So i just fit as

  • many of my designs as possible onto an A4 sheet and then printed that with inkjet transfer

  • paper. My lovely friend Lucia let me borrow her printer for this so thank you Lu if you're

  • watching. You'll end up with sheets with lots of little labels on them so what you want

  • to do next is cut them out.

  • I didn't want they grey borders to be included on my actual label so I used them as a guide

  • to cut out the piece from the middle.

  • This is the ribbon I'm going to use for my labels. it's got a herringbone pattern on

  • it and it seems to be quite good quality. i got it from Amazon but I'll leave a link

  • to it down below so you can check it out as well. So i cut this into a few six and a half

  • centimetre pieces to make my labels. Place each side of your label design face down onto

  • the ribbon, leaving a little gap in the middle so that you're going to be able to fold it

  • in half easily. Then follow the instructions on your transfer paper some need more heat,

  • some need to be pressed for longer and this transfer paper that I used required more pressure

  • than heat so I was pressing down hard with the iron, and I put a cloth in between just

  • so that my iron wasn't accidentally lifting up and moving the little pieces of transfer

  • paper as I was pressing.

  • Then you can peel of the backing of the transfer paper while it's still warm and it should

  • come away nice and cleanly. Then fold the ribbon in half and press down on it to crease

  • the ribbon so it will stay in the label shape. Trim the end of the ribbon to get it even

  • and then very carefully run a lighter over it just to seal the edges and stop it fraying.

  • to stick the label onto the t-shirt I'm going to be using hemming tape. This stuff holds

  • fabric together by heating it, I think it's some sort of gluey stuff inside I don't know,

  • all I know is it works. So i cut that to size, one side for the back and the front of the

  • label and then what i'm gonna do is stick the label over top of the brand label that's

  • already in the t-shirt. place the label just under the seam so that there's a nice neat

  • finish and then follow the instructions on the hemming tape. Mine says to put a damp

  • cloth on top and then press down with an iron until the cloth has dried a bit and that means

  • the hemming tape will work. So there you have your label in your t-shirt. It's machine washable

  • and because we tucked it underneath the seam it means that it's not gonna be itchy or annoying

  • sitting in the back there. I think these labels add a really professional finishing touch

  • to my t-shirts and I'm really excited about them. If you want to check out the t-shirts

  • in my store then you can do that, there will be a link down below, they're all designs

  • that are like inspired by music soif that's your thing, you might like them. If you're

  • interested in starting up your own t-shirt company then i do have a playlist that will

  • probably really come in handy for you it's full of videos about screen-printing and setting

  • up an online store and talking about how I started my little business so that will be

  • linked down below in the description box. i would love it if you gave this video a thumbs

  • up if you enjoyed it and subscribed to my channel if you'd like to hear more from me

  • and I will see you next time. bye!
