I mentioned in the thread for my resort (Azul Sensatori) that I made these and there was a lot of interest.. so here goes:
I bought the chapstick from a website called Bulk Apothecary for .14 cents/chapstick with NO MINIMUM! Whooo! I ordered 50. Talk about cheap! These are the ones I bought: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/containers/lip-balm-tubes-jars-and-tins/white-stick-standard-15-oz-lip-balm-tube/
The picture shows a blue chapstick but it is clear (and tastes like regular chapstick). I am very happy with the quality.
They also have flavors for .19 cents/chapstick. These: http://www.bulkapothecary.com/lip-balm/white-stick-lip-balm-comes-in-6-great-flavors-starting-at-19-unit/
The website also offers the labels you need in order to make your chapsticks personalized. The sheets are only $1 per sheet and there are 15 labels/sheet.
Once my items came in the mail I got to work designing my label. I dabble in graphic design and find it very fun!
When I was ready to print my labels I was able to find a template for them online here: (You can also ask Bulk Apothecary and they will email you a template)
At first I messed up because I thought the orientation of the label was top to bottom, but its left to right (sideways) so I had to tweek my design and upload the design into the template sideways.
Once I got that straightened out I was good to go and all I had to do was put the stickers on my chapstick tubes. I have to say I am so pleased with how they came out and I think they will really be a hit!

and the other says Besos! Meg & Dan
Sorry for the kind of crappy picture quality. I was trying to get the stick from all angles and I tried some with flash and some without.
Update: I company offered to cancel my order and refund my money. They were not willing to adjust the order. I agreed to have it cancelled. I reordered the right product and I thought everything was fine. I checked my account...they never refunded my money for the first order. I called them and they said it was too late since my order was shipped. What? So now I have a box full of empty tubes coming my way.
I'm so sorry this happened! I would try contacting them again and speaking with someone else.
