Hi Pam - do check out this option for DIY labels.
If you buy sheets of Avery style labels on eBay or wherever, it can be really economical.
Never knowingly underfed
How about these free downloadable labels:
Many thanks to all for these ideas,
I have learnt a lot of new ideas from you all. And certainly will look up Avery on-line for new ideas.
I should have said am wanting sticky back pull off labels that are attractive .
Am wanting for selling and charity giving home made preserves and the label is important I feel presentation is everything.
we live so far away from towns etc that hoping to buy on internet its so much cheaper paying postage than fuel for our car!!!!!!!
Warm wishes from Pam
Have you seen these online http://www.jamjarshop.com/buy/jarlabels/?catid=4
I got some of their lid labels for covering up old supermarket jar lids and see they do plain labels as well.
Thanks Digger for this link,
Oh some lovely types on there ( well I love ''shabby chic''/retro style) and they have some lovely dotty ones as well as gingham types .....Imagine on Bon maman jars :O)). Trouble is the price is more expensive than lakeland ltd and far less in a pack.
But, I am tempted :O))))))) I think I will order some from these people for more expensive preserves I make so can charge more for and collect rest from Lakelands when in town....thanks Danast for that Lakelands idea brill!
Warn wishes from Pam
On the topic of labels, does anyone have any tips for getting labels _off_ jam jars? I can remember just being able to soak them off in hot water in the past, but nowadays they seem to be stuck on with superglue. Even the dishwasher doesn't budge them. I've tried rubbing with cooking oil and 90% alcohol, but I still end up spending 10 minutes scraping away with a knife trying to get them off 🙁
Mayonase is good for removing stickers.
Forgot to say leave it for a good 20 minutes.
