I guess this is the right place to post this. This lady does some interesting mailing labels and my GF has been placing orders with her for quite a while now. Today she stumbled across these and I had to share:

Cute. If I was the type of person to use mailing labels, I might be tempted to buy a couple.

Suit yourself. Personally, I think a little presentation makes all the difference. It says, "I care enough to delay shipping so that you can look at my fancy labels."

I like 'em. Let me encourage everyone to consider using those labels as you send me many different samples of quality absinthe. However, if anyone is reluctant to use a label that advertises the contents, please know I won't reject samples not using spiffy labels. :cheers:

Beer, scotch, wine and coffee are also welcome, of course.

Ok, so I'm the only one who won't be easily impressed by something made from pictures you can steal off the internet and print in your own home printer by downloading freeware labelling software?

Hartsmar, I am amazed at the number of people here that remain computer illiterate. I'm not referring to the computer savvy nerds on this forum, of course. I still encounter plenty of people that are email or 'net challenged. Especially odd to me are the students skilled at downloading music but couldn't find the New York Times with both hands.

I hope Sweden is different from the US but the next time you're in the stores, consider all the worthless crap people buy. There's nothing strange in people buying easily made mailing labels.

OMG, you may have your soapbox back.

After reading hartsmar's post I was looking for it. ;)

I agree, I may not be the most adept at these things but I feel I can google or ebay about anything my little ole heart desires.

I'm not into fancy labels, prefer plain brown wrappers. It's a history thing.

Like my cars, they have no decals or bumper stickers indicating my opinion or my other car is a POS as well. :)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Or, you could either build a template with Microsoft Word's labelling function, or spend $15 and get quality labelling software, either of which would enable you to produce something that doesn't suck.
