I am not actually offering to help, due to being not good enough and too lazy, but I think it might help if you tell us what you are going to print these onto and what you are going to print them with. That will give people an idea of the size of the label, the colors available etc.

I print mine onto Avery style labels in a laser printer. This means that I can only use black and white or greyscale. But it keeps the cost down, compared to using a colour inkjet.

Also, even with black and white printing, you can use colour labels. My first one was on silver foil.

Yes some more info would be nice. My fiancee and I have designed many great looking labels (will post some tomorrow) and know photoshop well. She is a graphic designer so that really helps. I'm sure we could work something out for getting you a template. Just let us know what your ideas are.

That's the problem. I'm clueless as to what size it would need to be, etc. to make a nice label. I suppose if you've designed several labels already you have a general idea of the sizes/resolutions?

As for printing, normally I'll take my design to staples or something and have them laser-printed 6-9 to a sheet (depending on size) on some higher quality paper and attach with glue stick or the dried milk method.

If you let me know what specifics you are looking for I can specify some more possibly...

Has anyone done this for you yet? It's simple enough.

Try this. I don't have all the fonts and I can't read the wwhite text so you can handle that stuff.

Whats a .psd file? I guess I don't have the software to open it.

Cheesefood 01-21-2007 06:39 PM

It's a photoshop native file, Dude. It allows a designer to create layers, so individual elements can be altered without altering the entire image.

Go on Cheese, convert it to a Jpeg so we can all have a nose. :)
