Default Spray sealing labels

On liquid soap bottles, regular labels that get wet run like mad. I find weatherproof label paper very expensive, so Iím experimenting with spray-sealing my labels. I bought a can of matte-finish acrylic spray seal for this from Amazon (the kind people use on finished paintings.) I find that it doesnít matter if I spray the label on the bottle or on the sheet, I still get a nice water-proof effect. So very much cheaper than weatherproof labels! Is there a downside Iím not seeing?

you would be much better off with the weatherproof labels. If you are doing these to sell I would highly recommend the weatherproof or have vinyl labels made, since the package is the first impression for a potential customer.
