How to make or create labels in Minecraft?

The first thing to keep in mind is that the labels cannot be constructed, ie there is no combination of materials capable of creating them.

These must be obtained in the game in the following ways: the first and most common is by drawing. Most players get tags from the sea or lakes, this can take long periods of time, as these items are rare.

So it is advisable have an enchanted reed when doing this process, to reduce waiting times.

They can also be obtained from chests in dungeons or mines. Tags are known to be naturally generated on these. All you have to do is explore a little and be lucky to stumble upon a tag sooner or later.


Finally, you can also get them by trading with the villagers, these are worth 20 to 22 emeralds each, so getting them this way is the least feasible, but it still works. And voila, with that, the question is solved: How to make or create labels in Minecraft? Now you will learn what they are for.

What is a tag for?

The tag has only one function which is to name a creature in the game or to name animals and pets (all can be named except the dragon at the end), so making or creating labels in Minecraft is essential to add personality to your game.

To accomplish this task you have to put the label on an anvil (obviously you have to know how to make or create an anvil), and there put the name of your choice. Then right click on the creature that will be named with the label in hand and voila.

Keep in mind that this will not tame the creature, just give it a name, its behavior will be the same. Also, I don't know the wrath of the world, once something has a name, it stays in Minecraft no matter how far you get away from it.

If the pet or enemy you named dies, the tag will not be returned to you because they are out of stock at the time of use, and if you want to rename a creature with another nickname you have to use another tag on it.

The name will be visible up to 7 frames away, beyond that it will not be possible to see it, but this is only a visual effect.

Curious names

There are a number of four names that cause different effects on creatures when tagged, these are: dinnerbone, jeb_, toast e grumm.


The first will make the named creature flip, the second will change the look of the sheep's face as if it were a beard. The third will change the look of the rabbits by putting black and white fur on them and the last does the same thing as the first to flip the creatures.

This was put together as a joke by the developers so that the players could laugh and play with these changes once discovered.

With the latter thing, now you already know everything you need to be able to create or create labels in Minecraft, go and start exploring the world to find your labels and start naming whatever comes to your mind, because in this game the imagination has no limits whatsoever. And remember to keep looking for tutorials like the one that will allow you to create a frame in Minecraft so that your experience is expanded.
