HI, I am looking for a good resource for sewn-in labels. I did see an online company , but am "chicken" to order sight unseen.

Are you looking for labels with your own logo, sizes, or care instructions?
There are a lot of people on etsy that offer great size and care ones. Fabric Hound also offers size labels.
If you are looking for labels with your own logo, I suggest trying to make your own if you don't need that many. You can
purchase printable cotton from most craft stores and print your label straight onto this. Or, you could use iron on transfers and print onto those and affix them to the fabric of your choice.
If you are looking for woven labels, I have no suggestions.

Clothinglabels4u.com offers ready-made size tabs. They sell them in packages of 10 on up. I have had nothing but great experiences with them; they usually ship the same or next day.
If you're looking for "brand" labels, you can either print them yourself with an inkjet printer and fabric paper (or fabric on paper) or hire someone else to do it. Your choices then will be either woven or printed. My first batch was printed because I wanted to see how it went and if I wanted to upgrade to woven. Mine were doing by
custom Couture Label Co.
. I also had them print my first set of hang tags. They've recently added woven labels to the mix, which is nice because the volume requirements are pretty low.
Actually, that's one of the biggest challenge with woven labels -- the minimums. But there are companies out there that specialize in small orders. I switched to woven once I knew I was selling my creations. I think they look more professional and they hold up so well. (My printed labels have done fine, BTW.)

I've done all my custom label shopping on etsy and have had great results. You can find anything you want and they all deal in smaller orders.
