hangtag

this is the stamp i got at the flea market that i thought could be a cool starting place for the logo for the hangtag to put on stuff we make that's sewn at MCIF, or even just anything made with care and a good conscience, in which case maybe it shouldn't be a sewing machine? can anyone think of a good way to say what i mean? i don't really want to say 'sweatshop free'. which reminds me, it was really funny that chisara, the manager at MCIF, was wearing a sweater and poncho because it was so cool in there. definitely not a sweatshop!

I love the sewing machince. I think its a good logo for the tags becuase its a sewing place and all. Maybe we could get the tags printer at a green printed with soy based inks! Lets look into that, there was the one that Hanna talked about at the last meeting- do they do tags? Who would be interested in the tags?

i love the sewing machine too. things are sort of up in the air right now with whether i'll need to start turning out more production... if i do i'll need to have things made at MCIF and would love to use the tags.

good idea! can we just use this image or will there be issues with using an existing stamp?

it is a VERY old stamp, for a printing press, not a rubber one. we would want to adjust it a little because it says 'MINNESOTA' on the sewing machine, but i think the basic artwork would be safe to use...
