Labels are truly the bane of my existence.

Or rather, until recently, they WERE.

As a small home-based DIY crafter, are you confused how to make a glossy, super water-resistant label on your inkjet printer for your products you sell on Etsy? If you make bath & body, it is a requirement! You just cannot offer products if the labels are going to run or disintegrate in the shower. I've read the forums and customers really appreciate a quality label.

I get a lot of questions about my labels and I've ASKED a lot of other people about their labels! In all my searching for the perfect solution, I've discovered one thing in particular that helped me the most. This "secret" has made all the difference for me and I've haven't looked back! Get the tutorial to find out!

Although I've tried just about everything, I've been very pleased with the end product that results from using these products and methods listed in this tutorial. Awesome labels can make the difference between looking like you make stuff in your garage and getting great Etsy feedback for your beautiful packaging (even though you do make stuff in your garage)!! If you make bath, body or candles you will want to solve "the label dilemma" once and for all so you can move on in your business or craft with confidence.

This is not a label template. This has no label design information. Simply the info how I produce a label (not design the label).

When I started making bath, body & candles, I ordered glossy labels from a small run label supplier. They turned out beautifully. However, ordering from a commercial source did not give me the flexibility I wanted. When I created a new scent or color, I was unable to launch the new item without purchasing the minimum run. And let's face it, if "Fresh Laundry Pumpkin Lime Cheesecake" doesn't sell, I don't want 100 of those labels! I wanted to make a label and print ONE if I needed to since I'm a small DIY operation.

So over the past 6+ years I've learned a lot mainly through trial and error. I've spent A LOT of time and money on those "errors"! That's why I'm not giving away this information for free. Other crafters are often not generous with their label information when you ask. Who can blame them? This stuff is HARD EARNED! That's why I put a price tag on this tutorial. I hope the content is a value for you and revolutionizes the way your products look! I wish I had this information when I started!

I have several Etsy shops. As of June 2010, I have over 2500 sales between all my shops since December 2005. Nearly all of those labels are handmade by me! Thanks Etsy!

I am constantly amazed that customers take time to convo or email after they read the tutorial. I'm surprised how many say they are "thankful", wow, that makes me feel awesome! The following testimonials are from unsolicited convos and emails sent from customers after purchasing the tutorial. You can also read the Etsy feedback, too. Thank YOU!

Via email:
"Thank you for the tutorial. It was very helpful. I searched for info for about 1 year ( or more) on how to make professional looking labels. I came across some of the same links you have listed and spent a bundle of cash experimenting. You however put it all in a nutshell and made it clear and to the point. It beats the heck out of sitting endless hours in front of the computer with my eyes bleeding trying to come up with a solution. Even if you charged more for your tutorial it would be well worth it. I would consider charging a little more for this tutorial. You wouldn't believe what I paid to get some info as simple as you put it and got nothing. Thanks!"

Kim, Etsy shop owner via Etsy convo:
"OMG my labels look so great, I would like to say thank you again for this great information. It was so worth the money spent. Thank you, Thank You, Thank you."
