Where's the best place to get labels made?
I use avery as well. Like having the ability to change them if needed. Only dislike is they run when wet. Going to try and spray them with something before applying this year. Sorry no idea exactly on price comparison as I just bought ink and started running them.I use these labels from Avery. Bought em at Walmart. Wife made a label design and we print them with our printer. Seems to work well. Haven’t tried anything different, so I don’t know if it’s the best. They do look good.
Get all ours from Mann Lake with 1 pound printed on the label as that is almost all we sell. When selling a larger or smaller bottle I just scratch through the number 1 and write in the correct weight. Only takes a few seconds.I got mine from Mann lake they will send a template you can make changes and order. Not saying it’s the best but I am happy. One thing I’d change is weight. I would not have a weight. I intended on doing just pints but people wanted quarts so both jars are labeled as 1.5 lbs but people don’t seem to be as concerned of it as I was.
If you print them on a laser jet (vs ink jet) printer they should not run and this may be way easier then trying to coat the labels. Laser jets "melt" plastic onto the paper and ink jets spray ink onto the paper. You can also get waterproof inks/cartridges for some inkjets, but I do not have any experience with these.Only dislike is they run when wet.
My labels sit in a honey stand that just has a small awning covering it. Sometimes sits out there for several days in the humidity or rainy weather. Not had a problem with the Avery labels, even with an inkjet printer.Thanks for the feed back. I thought about get the avery labels and printing my own. Glad you told me they run when wet. I have looked at man lake but not sure yet.
I like this approach or anything close to it. I saw someone else local was selling honey in mason jars and had literally wrote out a label. It looked horrible and unprofessional. I have seen handwritten labels look good as they did it with calligraphy or such and then made copies of it.Trying something different this time around - I just ordered folded business cards from Vistaprint and will tie them to the bottles. Outside has typical info (name, address, etc) Inside has nutritional info, a blurb about liquefying crystallized honey and warning not to feed to infants.

This one but turned the other way fits nice on a 1 pound bottle
