Labels?

I need to get some properly printed labels for my quail egg boxes. Can anyone recommend a supplier. I'm not looking for millions - atm the girls are only producing fifteen dozen a week Smile

If you want small quantities, could you print your own. We find that useful, particularly for things that might change frequently.

I've been doing that - but I'm having printer problems and the amount I'm wasting when it squidges off the edges because of a mis-feed is causing a lot of wastage. Also, I've got an inkjet printer and the labels smudge really badly in the damp, which isn't ideal for the market stall. I'm on my way to upgrading, but I can't afford to at the moment, so I thought getting a few hundred printed up would fill the gap.

I'm just about to have a go at ordering now, so I'll report back when I get it done!

Agree about them smudging in the damp. You can reduce the sticking problem by putting the sheets in individually. Husband found that, or they tend to stick to each other and get misaligned.

I've just bought some from Flight so Fancy. Very quick turn around with exactly the text I asked for. Only problem was I needed to have the flat topped boxes that take the labels as my last batch were the standard 1 dox bumpy topped boxes.

I've gone for 3.7mm round ones - they go in one of the top corners on the plastic quail egg boxes really nicely. I don't label my egg boxes with stick-ons, I have a self-inking stamp that works really well for over a stall, if people don't bring their own back for re-filling.

Are you sure? I know quail eggs are little but 3.7mm is tiny.

I hate you.
