Default Label Source for Tap Handle Shield?

I've been searching for an oval label that's 2.25" X 3.25" and comes on a sheet for ink jet printers to stick on my tap handle shields, but have come up empty on every search.

Anyone have an online source for such a beast?


I'd even settle for a 2" X 3" ovals, but I can't find those either.


Anyone?

You may have to have them custom made. I've never been able to find oval labels "off the shelf". I print mine on full sheet photo gloss label stock or bumper sticker stock and hand cut.

EDIT - I just remembered "Ripped Sheets". You may try them. I used to use them for label stock at my last job.

Yeah, I'm trying to avoid having to cut. I'm using some that I cut and I just can't cut them even enough so when I place them on the shields, which is a perfect oval, it highlights the defects in mine.


That's a cool link BT and you failed to mention that you also use magnetic stock and stick the out of rotation labels on your fridge. I thought that was too cool!

You can try onlinelabels.com I dont know if they have ovals like that, but they have lots of sizes and even waterproof ones.

If you can't find what you're after, try getting an oval-cutting template from your craft-supply store. Use an Exacto to make the cut and you'll probably get a shape as precise as the oval you're trying to match.

Here's the first thing I found on a google search:
