    Default Labels post a picture of your labels!

    Ok…we’ve shown trucks and loaders. I see that there was an individual posting his label….and it made me think that maybe showing off our labels might be interesting.
    Here is mine. It has a glossy finish but I held it so that most of the light wouldn’t reflect.

    And, on the top of the lids I put this label.

    looks great!.....right now all I have is the CNG stickers, hopefully by next year my wife will have me some nice labels.
    did you go through a local print shop or just design them yourself and order them online?
    also curious if the glossy labels will hold up to washing(by hand, I am my wifes dishwashing machien )
    most of my best customers will return there jars for a refill!

    Thanks again hipbee.
    If you remember my marketing manager from the vinegar thread, she designed the logos and labels. We've had them printed at a couple of places. While they are somewhat water resistant, I think washing will take a toll. In GA, the Dept of Ag does not allow the reuse of jars for retail sales, so it's a non issue for me.

    Im hoping for enuf honey to start selling retail so I need to look into my local restrictions!
    this year freinds and family purchased 250 lbs of honey and still want more!
    thats a weird restriction anyway, people usually bring back jars cleaner than what they come at the store. have you ever noticed that awful chemical smell when opening a case of new jars? have to wash them all anyway! but I guess its not a big deal because I usually only get back about 2% of my jars anyway.
    P.S. I have to get my marketing manager in touch with your marketing manager...She is Good!

    "have to wash them all anyway! but I guess its not a big deal" - we put our jars through a sterilizer ( in a commercial kitchen). They come out very, very hot a dry in no time. We can deal with 100's of jars in an hour.
    We re-use a lot of our jars ( we give a Dollar back) but remove all the labels. The Dollar return has been a good marketing tool as people usually buy more.

    This was my first year, and I wasn't prepared for a big honey crop, but the girls surprised me with 38lbs.

    We distributed jars of honey mostly to our friends, family and neighbors and our hand-made labels were well received.

    I think for next year, I'm going to get some waterproof labels made. Keep the pictures coming!
