    I looked and looked around for engraved shot glass, or something with a funny saying, but only needed 11 and couldn't find 1 place who would sell me that little amount. so I went to dollarama, and bought 3 shot glasses for $1. But still really wanted to personalize them. I searched and searched but couldn't come up with anything. I have no artistic hand in my bone, so I took a label from a shot glass on the internet and she resized it. I even added my name with photoimpression (whoever has photo shop I am sure could do a lot better job) It's perfect for those Jamaica brides!
    I went to staples and bought label sticker paper. Printed them on. I will use book protector to make it slightly waterproof. Pics to come.
    Hope it helps someone.
    I'm working on fan labels. We will be back in a day or 2 to add those as well.

      I've been struggling with the waterproof label as well. I was thinking of trying to put clear packing tape over the labels then cutting out to size. Wonder if this would work?

          I tried the double sided tape, but it wouldn't stick to the glass, so I say def print them on sticky label paper. You can def tape up the front to make it water proof, or you can use book protector (the stuff teacher's made you put on your books at school)
          then just cut around the wording, and there is your label!

            Looks good! There was also a DIY on here where they used the window decal sticker from vistaprint, put a bunch on one sheet and then cut it up. But I am not sure if you have to order a bunch, or you can just get one sheet.

              Thank you :)
              yes I saw that thread, I have no idea how she did it. Putting the same label , many of them on one sheet, I tried but didn't work out for me. Anyhow.. they were free and the window decal was $9 plus shiping.

                I'm trying to find a solution to this as well..most sites charge a crazy 'set up' fee or other cost to personalize...I want to find something that can be washed and re-used and won't be ruined :/

                  exactly!!! it's why I just went this way. I found a website that had a whole bunch of different glasses with different sayings, took 1 and rezized it and put our date on it.
                  I know it def wont be dishwasher safe, but it's def washable (I've been washing them after putting the labels on for the true test) and it's been fine, not peeling at all!
                  Good luck!! :)

                    The labels stick really well to the shot glasses but will the ink run?
