Labels for Halloween

October 29, 2010

There’s a partay goin on right here! A celebration that’ll last throughout the year. Ok, I’m ripping off Cool and the Gang, but if you’ve got a party, and need to get word out before Halloween this Sunday, why not slap a full sheet label together and put it up in a prominent place. With some good designs and proper placement, you’ll be sure to have a great party. Just go easy on the free flowing alcohol. Cheap alcohol and large gatherings of people have been known to be not such a good combination.

Download a copy of Inkscape if you want to mess around with the flier.

ML-0100, or ML-1000?

October 5, 2010

We just had a customer order ML-1000’s, the address labels. The problem is that they wanted ML-0100’s, the full sheet label. It’s not an uncommon mistake. Just transpose the 1 and you’ve got you’re mistake. It’s not that one can’t tell the difference between the numbers, it’s just a mistake that’s all. It’s happened now and then over the years. In our job, we have to be mind readers. We always have to look at the order, then look at what the customer has ordered and see if the customer has ever ordered that product. If it does happen, it’s a lose lose situation. We lose out on shipping, and the customer loses out on time, and perhaps an important deadline.
So please be careful when ordering products and double check your part numbers, and we’ll do some quality control on our side and ask more questions. 🙂

With the Full Sheet Label,

July 15, 2010

If you’re handy with a knife, you can cut your own labels from our full sheet labels, the ML-0100. Seriously. This can be fun if you’ve got a steady hand and are artistic, and you assemble some simple tools, you can cut out your own labels. I just picked up a full set of knockoff x-acto knives at the 99 cent store. The weird thing is, they cost $1.29. What’s up with that? Nothing at the 99 cent store cost 99 cents anymore. They’re gonna have to come up with a catchy name that represents the cost of the products. While all of the items there are cheap, and 99.99% of the products are made in China, I’ve already ruled out the name Cheapy China, just because it doesn’t sound right, it’s not gonna attract customers.
Many of our customers also use the full sheet labels in Medical offices for Transcription labels.

Here’s a label I designed for the full sheet label. It’s a custom address label in the shape of a scroll. If you have good vision, and a good x-acto knifre, you should be able to do a knock up job. If you don’t have good vision, get a magnifying glass, or magnifying glasses, that should help you cut out the pattern.

Ok, now here’s the label after I cut it out and put it on an envelope. It’s taken on my webcam. Wow, I have to get a new webcam.

I feel like the next door neighbor whose full face you never saw on the old sitcom “home improvement“.

Would you ever expect a Gas Station Bathroom to be clean?

February 25, 2010

I was at the service station to say goodbye to my Taurus and to sign it over to the junkyard. I had a long wait. So I had to use the facilities. Facilities indeed. Have you ever seen the movie Trainspotting? Yeah, it was kinda like that. I could have used some ML-0100 full sheet labels for maximum coverage to stick all over the place to make it seem clean. Gross.
