    My friend sells lip glosses and other lotions at farmers markets but hasn’t found a label that won’t come off her tubes. She would like to print them herself. Is there anything like this out there? I cannot help her as i do not sell product i just make for myself.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I use Avery 4x2 waterresistant labels that do not come off. I do have to cut the label but get 2 labels per 4x2 with one cut for each label.

    This might work better. I tried the site that Cellador mentioned but for some reason it won’t work for me and i don’t want to forward a site before i try it. I wonder if it is because we are Canadian.

    I have used a shorter shrink wrap on top on my labels so they don’t come off. I have found that eventually the labels come off or get grimy. It’s kind of like laminating them and then I put a full shrink wrap on to seal the tube.

    The weather-resistant labels are glossy and do not come off or get grimy with normal use. In fact, they can be wiped off, at least with my laser printer ink. Online does carry weather-resistant labels but several years they changed manufacturers of their label and their labels will no longer work in my laser due to heat issues. I have used the tear-off lip balm shrink tubes but they are more expensive than other shrink tubes.

    I buy from Online Labels all the time. I use their labels for my lip balms and love them. And they ship FAST! I usually have my labels in hand within 48 hours and I'm at the opposite end of the continent.

    (P.S. I was born in Winnipeg... lived there till I was 12)

    I’ll have to try the gloss ones. I suppose I think mostly about the grime factor when I travel around with a balm in my purse when I’m testing a recipe.
