What advice would you give someone starting this project? There are no instructions per say for this. I purchased twill tape. Created my logo in Microsoft word. Filled the page in word by coping finished logo. I printed it on iron on paper. Cut them to fit on the twill tape and ironed on. I finished the edges off with my serger.

If you can't find twill tape, you could try woven ribbon, grosgrain or folded cotton fabric. There is a product called Bubble Jet Rinse to set the ink & some quilters use Retayne to help set dyes.

What kind of iron-on paper did you use? All I can find is transfer paper, but this doesn't look like you did a transfer, you just ironed the paper directly on to the tape. There are a lot of questions about washability but I haven't seen an answer: do they hold up in the wash?

I used the dark fabrics iron on paper. It washes very well. However, just like any home made labeling, it does not last as long as manufacturing made labels.

Does the lettering need to be reversed? What is the brand name of the iron-on paper you used?
