Hello all!
I have been scouring the internet (including this forum) but can not find a cigar band label template that will work for my soap.
My soap is about 10 cm wide, 5 cm high and 2.5 cm thick
Cigar band labels seem to be pretty common - how did you guys design your label? What software/website did you use?
I have tried Avery but I couldn't find anything that seemed to work.
Any recommendations greatly appreciated.
Thanks! :)

When I was using cigar labels, I had to produce my own. I started with an Avery template and feel like that's what I kept with. I measured my soap after it was cured and figured out where I wanted each part of my label to hit. Took some hit and miss, but eventually I found the right layout that I could use for all my soaps.

You can make your own cigar band labels using Microsoft Word or Printmaster. Just use the square shapes option, make it into a rectangle and insert clipart and text.

I find pretty scrap book paper and cut into 2” wide strips and trim length down to fit any size bar I make. I close them with a 2” inch square label I created on Avery.com. Sometimes instead of scrapbook paper I also use brown craft paper. But I don’t sell... and just label my soaps when I give as gifts.

I use Avery' they have many templates designs sizes & shapes to choose from. I started out w/a band type style now i'm using a square shape template' I can choose any printed paper or color I like which is nice. I put the label on the front of soap then shrink wrap it. 2nd option w/ Avery you can choose a design & have them print it for you' I think you have more options in a label design but its more costly too. Happy Soaping 💫

Onlinelabels.com sells a cigar band label: 8" x 2" Soap Band Labels - Cigar Style for Soap Bars & Boxes - OL5226

I have not used them, but I have heard that ordering the actual printed labels from them is often cheaper than buying your labels and printing them yourself. Plus, they will work with you on a custom size and shape if their standard ones are not the size you need. And then you use their free software to design what is printed on it.
