I am looking for some custom printed (b&w only) clear labels. I currently use a 2x4" clear address label from staples that I print at home, but they are troublesome with my printers (yes, I've ruined 2 so far...) and would like to just order them and be done with it.

I have looked at a few places on line and the cost is about $400 per 2000 labels, 5x what I pay when I do them myself.

An alternate (that I would love!) would be to have the information (business info & ingredients) printed right on the clear bags.

Does anyone have a reliable source for either of these items?

I was going to see about getting some cute little round labels for my hobby cakes for fun, and was appalled at the price! Forget that.

Try VistaPrint. They've got a huge online 'store'. Maybe they have clear B&W address labels that wouldn't cost a fortune.

google clear return address labels. Here's one that came up with a roll of 600 for $18. Would that give you enough space to list your ingredients? Maybe you could use 2 or 3 labels on each product with half or 1/3 of the info on each label.

Thanks for the suggestion - I just checked VistaPrint (which I used for my business cards!)

Unfortunately, Vista Print (and Staples) both only offer white labels. I put these on the back of the clear cello bag per my state's requirements and I don't want to be able to see the label from the front so it needs to be clear.

Just saw your post about the roll of labels...maybe I need to look into a dedicated label maker...hmmm...thanks for getting me thinking in a new direction!

Would you be able to, or want to, use a different kind of packaging? Would it be too expensive to type the ingredients on the back and your info on the front of a square of paper instead? Something like this, that goes on top instead? (See The Paper Topper on second example)

Check out - they have pretty good prices on clear labels. If you can get all your text on a smaller label it will cost less of course.
