Custom Label Printing - Water, Smudge and Scratch Resistant
I'm curious if there are many homebrewers that would be interested in a service that offers professional quality label printing on a small print run scale? I just purchased a professional label printer that prints water, smudge and scratch resistant labels with pressure sensitive adhesive. It was a purchase I made for use on business projects (I run a small design studio) and I thought about offering printing services to any homebrewers that might be interested.

I didn't know if it would be something brewers would be interested in. I know there are a lot of you that do your own labels and using standard inkjet printers has its issues.

Any thoughts or interest?

I would be interested depending on the cost, are you thinking printed and laminated vinyl?

I have a few different materials available. The high-gloss polyster is the most water resistant. These are the labels I am using if you are interested in checking out more info: http://www.primerastore.com/label_media

I'm just working on what my materials cost would be on a per label basis and then I'll post some numbers based on that.

I've figured out my costs and tried comparing to other label and sticker prices out there. I've seen small run printers like www.bottleyourbrand.com and www.makestickers.com and their numbers are all over based on quantity. $44.50 for 50 labels on one site and $37.95 for 50 on another.

I was thinking something like this:
$20 - 25 labels
$30 - 50 labels
$45 - 100 labels

I'm curious to hear what everyone else would consider a fair price. Since this is new to me I'm pretty open to hearing everyone out.

Just finished some test runs with the new printer and I'm very happy with the results. Right now I have 4"x6" high gloss labels in stock with a few other sizes on the way this week. If anyone is interested in a couple samples to see how they look let me know and I would be happy to mail some out.
