Just thought I'd share- I was using standard white glossy Avery labels, then switched to an identical label purchased affordably online. Both were a train wreck at wet shows. Both were easily damaged by oil and water. Neither could be removed easily from my jars if they got damaged for relabeling after rain. I switched to the polyester weatherproof labels at onlinelabels.com and these problems are completely solved. Anyway, if you're having similar problems, you might consider giving these a shot.

I think they are new because I don't remember seeing them before (and I order all my labels from here). Just started testing them so good to hear your feedback :)

I've been using them for a couple years on my scrubs and body butters. They work great. No smearing or bleeding.

They are not new, but do not work well in all laser printers. I can use Avery weatherproof labels in my Oki digital but not the labelsonline labels since they changed the manufacturer of their labels a few years ago. They just melt onto my fuzer drum, so be careful if using a laser printer. Avery weatherproof do get a little hot and the glue will loosen so I have to wait for the labels to cool. For anyone using laser printers compare the printer temp to the label stock. It is not fun getting melted labels off a fuzer drum. But I will agree they hold up well.

I love their weatherproof labels. They're also available in so many shapes and sizes so the variety is great.

IrishLass - some of the labels will work in regular inkjet printers and some only work in laser printers. But either way, it's clearly stated what printer it will work with.

P&P, do these labels easily peel off if you wanted to change them out with a different one?

I use them in my Laser Printer and it does curl a bit but haven't had any other issues in 3 years. ( I have a Dell Laser). They peel off really nice and cleanly is you want to change them out. I only use the 2x4 so haven't others as those work great on my jars and tubes.
