My packaging is a bit weak for my specialty cookies...and I think what's missing is a professionally printed label. Anyone have any nuggets of information regarding purchase of professionally printed labels? Online companies, office supply chain stores, indie companies???? What is best?

Also - does anyone use a cardstock type label? And where do you choose to get that printed???

Thanks for your input!

I buy 2"x4" Avery mailing labels from Staples and use Avery's Word template to design my own labels, then print them on a color laser printer. Most printers handle card stock as well if you wanted to that route, but we've never used anything other than mailing labels.

Hi,

I have used Vista print as well much with success. But I have also designed and printed my own. I'm a freak with Microsoft Publisher and have no trouble designing professional labels, any size I want, with my logo etc. They look great and the only cost is the box of labels and a little ink.

Thanks everyone. I've done the 2x4 labels as well. And, I do like to design my own things. I don't have Publisher. But, I have a few basic programs. Maybe I should just continue experimenting until I find the right thing. I'm spread a little thin...so maybe just concentrating on ONE thing at a time will get me the perfect result

And, I will for sure look more into Vista print. Keep hearing about them. Thanks again for the ideas!
