Narchi has a cool tutorial today on making homemade fabric tags using a hand-carved stamp.
I love making tags. My favorite method at the moment is printing logos onto iron-on transfer paper (print it mirror-image from how you want it) and then ironing onto ribbon. Another cool technique is to screen or gocco print onto an old tshirt and then cut the tags from that---tshirt jersey usually curls at the ends instead of fraying, and it looks really cool when the image is larger, like business card sized. And of course, you can get a rad effect with our favorite material: fused plastic bags. That stuff never frays and you can draw on it with a sharpie or print it with any number of techniques.
