That will make your label stand out.
It wouldn't hurt to try clear labels but look at the cost, as labels can run a little pricey (shhh I got mine from work) but the shrink wrap on ebay ran about $3.50 or $5 for 50
Thanks, Mrs Wright! -
Yes, I am using this anchor throughout a lot of my projects. I ended up making it bigger & stretching it out a bit. I was hoping to make it a little more personalized by adding our names somewhere, I am not that good with designing! I am okay with the end result. I've personalized many other things.
I went and bought the clear labels and they work SO MUCH BETTER!!!! I got them cheap at Walmart. I then took your advice and got the shrink wrap seals. I got 100 for $6.00 with S&H. I did not want the ink to smudge on the label. Especially if using them on the beach or by the pool with wet/suntan lotion hands!! I only tested one shrink-wrap so far - AMAZING! Thanks so much for the tip.
Here are some updated pics. These are without the shrink wrap. I also included a pic of my anchor I am using in my projects - when it's bigger you can see the detail.
I think these look cool! I don't know what I am doing wrong! I've tried this size label and it is too big for my regular sized chapstick & it overlaps. I keep seeing everyone say to cut it, but how do you know where to put your design on the label? I am so challenged when it comes to DIY but I really want to change that during this planning process! Do you think you can email me a template of how you are doing yours? I'm trying to get my post count up and I can't access any of the templates yet! :-/
Thank you Shannonmarie! You are sweet. Was Mrs. Wright able to help you on this?
