We’ve got CD labels and DVD Labels here. Ever want to create a CD label or DVD label in Microsoft Word that has text running along the path of a curve that is concentric to the label? Welps, Word can’t do it. Oh, you say you can? With WordArt? OK, you go with that then. You’ll discover the WordArt text is misshapen, and doesn’t follow the curve of a circle very well. Using Inkscape, we’ve created a CD/DVD label using our existing template for the ML-7560/ML-7565 labels. They’re the same as the Avery 5698 layout. You’ll need OpenOffice to check it out. Have no fear though, OpenOffice is FREE. We created the lettering in Inkscape. You’ll need that too, and it’s also FREE.
Once you’ve created the text in Inkscape, you can select the text, then copy it to the clipboard, and then paste it directly into your OpenOffice document. You can resize it to you hearts delight yet still print and display as clear as ever.
This time I created a guitar themed return address label. If you play the guitar like me, you’ll enjoy this ML-8100 return address label template. I modeled the guitar after the Fender Stratocaster.
As always, this label layout is compatible with the Avery 5167.
Remember that video? Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney. Two megastars coming together to write a hit song. How could it not succeed? Well, here’s a template on our ML-8100 Return Address Label that’s bound to be a hit. Ok, maybe not, but for you pianists out there, you might like it. I could fit only 3 octaves of the keyboard, but it still works.
The MT-509 Hole Reinforcements are a perfect product for Offices anywhere. Schools, Universities, large companies small companies. Anywhere there is a ripped hole on a sheet of 3 hole punched paper, this product is needed. Save the environment by not printing out another sheet of paper. Just repair the hole using the MT-509. The computer revolution was supposed to save on paper, but incredibly, it looks like it has only increased paper use and consumption. Paper seems so plentiful now, and it’s so easy just to stick another sheet of paper into the printer and bang out another copy that people do it all the time. Well, it’s about time people try to become more sensitive to the environment, and save paper. Use our Hole Reinforcements instead of printing out another copy.

Something as easy as applying a shipping label seems easy, but there are some helpful tips you could use. First of all make sure that the Package that you’re affixing the label to is clean and dust free. It wouldn’t hurt just to run a very lightly damped rag over the surface just to get that dust off. Then wait a few minutes so that any dampness can evaporate before applying the label. Make sure that the surface you’re affixing the label to is free of any oils or materials that are flaking off such as old paint or old labels. Don’t affix your labels to surfaces that have old clear tape, the labels might be more prone to come off. Hey, there are a lot of small companies out there that just can’t go out and buy brand new boxes with perfectly clean surfaces. Anyway re-using boxes is better for the environment. It might not look as pretty, but you’re saving the planet one cardboard box at a time.
Here’s another flourish for the ML-0400. It’s a quarter sheet shipping label. I’ve put the SVG below the MS Word document.
