Where to get pretty soap labels?

sillymesillyneNovember 8, 2005

Hi,

I was wondering where I could get some pretty soap labels? I'm assuming those of you who sell your handmade soaps have a source/sources for the labels? I would like to use them for my bathroom accessories...apothecary jars and such, heck, maybe even for soap! ;)

Thanks,

Silly

I make my soap labels for the soap I sell, but I bought some real pretty (replica) vintage soap labels from The Scent of Home Candle Company for my personal use. I just checked and their website is currently not available, but I will post the link anyway.

How do you make your labels? On the computer? Is this something I could do, too? It really boggles my mind that these are not, readily, available through the different suppliers.
Thanks,
Silly

I use Microsoft Publisher, although any program that can make business cards would do. I use a business card format, and customize it. I then print out a sheet of them on regular printer paper, and cut them out. I affix them to the soap using Scotch brand storage tape. The storage tape is temperature and moisture resistant. This tape also acts as a seal of sorts for the bar of soap, too. I do the same thing, except sometimes I use different lable formats, for all of my bath products I sell. My graphics that I use I obtain by browsing the usenet newsgroup, alt.binaries.clip-art. This has worked well for me, and is more cost efficient than buying labels.

It's easy and fun (and quite cost effective) to design your own labels.

Go to http://www.avery.com and download the free version of Avery Design Pro. It's very user friendly. You may use it to design labels, business cards, hang tags or "cigar band"-style wrappers for your soaps.

I use Label Factory to make my labels for all of my products. It is very easy to use and you can create custom size labels and pull in any graphics of yours or it comes with some graphics.
