    Hi Jennifer,

    It sounds like you're looking for two services in one. The first being a graphics designer, the second being a custom label weaving vendor. ??

    If you want someone or a company that specializes in designing the artwork for textile labels the best bet is to get a Los Angeles yellow pages from the phone company and look up graphics designers; there are bags and bags of textile companies in L.A. If you feel that you can trust just a good graphics designer your local phone book should have some listed. The person you choose should have a portfolio of their work to show you, it'll be more a matter of whether you like their work or not. Look for people whose samples have sharp edges, high contrast, and one or two colors. You don't want to try shading on a woven label.

    If you've got your own artwork or decide to design your own, you can try these two web sites to get your labels woven, http://www.namemaker.com and http://www.artray.com

    If neither of these work the L.A. phone book will have lots of companies to choose from.

    In any case make sure you contact the company that will do the manufacturing first to get their requirements for artwork (e.g. certain size, color separation). Most of the weaving vendors can help you make simple design choices like navy blue vs. marine blue lettering.

    Number of colors is important. If you stick to a single color for the lettering and design it will be much cheaper than if you try to go for several colors (unless you go for that variegated thread).
