In what seems to be the never ending quest to “brand” Knot By Gran’ma, I finally got some yarn labels to add to the list. They are far from perfect. I was prepping for a craft fair (cringe), and the yarn didn’t look right among the other items I had displayed. Some white paper, a stamp, round stickers, and a favorite pen later… we have something that looks like the KBG brand.
I used my official logo stamp to decorate the circle stickers. This is something that I do when packing orders, or closing my envelopes anyway. The stickers also act as tape to close up the label securely. It might have taken 10 minutes to stamp out all the stickers that I’d need. Easy and quick was the idea here.
The hardest part was handwriting the information on the labels. I did the entire stock of yarn in one sitting, so after a little bit my hand was feeling it. Each label got the yarn weight, whether it was handspun or hand dyed, the fiber used, yardage, price, and the KBG website. With very little work, I was able to get my yarn to look like the rest of my branding.
In the future, I’d like to streamline this a little more. Handwriting will be replaced 80% by printing and I think some nicer “label paper” would be a great addition. The stamped stickers are here to stay. I love them.
