Default Looking for Lined Printed Paper

I am interested in making inserts for my bars to label ingredients, weight, etc then I am going to shrink wrap them. My concern is that the oils from the soap with penetrate the paper. I was thinking of using a waxed/lined paper that I can print on but I can't find any. Does anyone have suggestions or experience in packaging their soap this way?

The only time I've had any problem like this is when the vanilla FO I used in one batch discolored the label in a few spots. Otherwise it's been a non issue, including later batches with the same FO (I got it mixed in better). I use a heavyweight brochure paper and shrink wrap.

If you don't mind shrink wrapping twice, you can shrink wrap it once, put the label on, then shrink wrap on top of that.

Alternately, you can buy adhesive labels, and place them on the outside of the shrink wrap.

I wrap my soaps in tissue, and then a cigar band label. I've never had a problem with oils from the soap getting on the paper.

You're not finding anything because a waxed paper is incompatible with both major current printing technologies. Ink Jet (as least a commonly used in home printers) needs a substrate that will absorb ink. Laser needs something that can take the heat of the fuser without melting.

GSC -- In re-reading this thread, I find myself wondering if you've had this problem with your soap or if it's just an issue you're just thinking about. If you've seen this problem with your soap, why do you think you have this problem -- for example, do you use a very high superfat? Not trying to pick on you at all ... I'm only curious about your thoughts....

ETA -- I saw a video by Arianne Arsenault showing how she double wraps her melt and pour soaps with shrink film. The label is just paper laid between the layers of plastic to protect it from the M&P sweat. But that's another ball game compared to CP and HP soap.

Is this the same as cardstock? I'm actually having the same thoughts as the OP after I recently changed how I label my soaps. I've been placing clear packing tape over the back of my labels to keep soap from contacting my label as a means of protecting it. It sounds as if this PITA step may actually be unnecessary.

Brochure paper is roughly the same weight as cardstock. If anything cardstock is a wee bit heavier, but not by much. Here's my tutorial about how I package: http://classicbells.com/soap/pkgTut.html

DeeAnna - Just trying to think ahead in case I have an issue. After curing my bars don't have a greasy feeling but I was concerned that the paper/cardstock might be affected by the saponified oils. I purchased a bar last year and the paper band had been lined (separate layer) with what appeared to be a waxed deli paper so that originally triggered my thoughts.

Thanks! I'll have to experiment and see if there's any interference with my labels then without the tape. Is your printer an ink jet or lazer?
