According to the Farmers almanac, it’s going to be a long cold winter. You’ll have plenty of time to figure out what things you need to get rid of to make space for the new things you’re going to get. Plan ahead for your Spring Garage Sale. Here’s a Spring Garage sale sign that you can print on our ML-0100 Full Sheet Labels.
You can print the Garage Sale sign directly from your browser, or download Inkscape, or use your favorite SVG editor to edit it to make it your own.
The ML-0100 design which is the Full Sheet label on 8-1/2″ X 11″ sheets was recently changed. Specifically the number of backing slits was changed to 2 instead of one. So when you are using the labels, you must take off 3 backing panels instead of two. After review, the labels will now be produced once again with one slit running from top to bottom of the page if you hold it in front of you in portrait fashion. Current stock will be exhausted until all of the stock with multiple slits is sold. Please call us to discuss any issues with this product.
Here’s a good use for the ML-0100 full sheet label. It’s the same as the Avery 5165 full sheet label. If you are in a workplace or a school where there is a Gleeking Epidemic, you need this sign that you can post anywhere there are problem areas. This will warn people that gleeking is not allowed. If you don’t know what gleeking is, you are not alone. That’s why there’s Urban Dictionary. See the Gleek definition here.
I’ve used Inkscape yet again to whip up a little poster for the ML-0100 label.
I touched on this topic a few posts ago, but it merits repeating. If you’ve got an artistic itch you want or need to scratch, and you have a little left over space on a full sheet label, half sheet label, a quarter sheet label or even an ML-0600 label, then get yourself an x-acto knife. It doesn’t take much talent, just a steady hand, the right amount of pressure, a pair of good eyes and a sharp x-acto knife. Dull x-acto knives will kill this idea in a heartbeat. You’ll be tearing the label instead of cutting it, and then you’ll be tearing your hair out.
Choose a piece of artwork according to your skill level, and according to the amount of time you want to spend cutting out your artwork. I’m choosing one of my favorite animals, the whale. I have a collection of whale cups at home. I let people know that I have a collections of whale cups, so when people go on vacation they send me all kinds of cups and mugs that have either depictions of whales, or are in the shape of a whale. The tail is usually the handle on the cup. I’ll be using one of my mugs as a starting point for my label artwork.
Using the Gimp and Inkscape, my final product is an outline of a killer whale. I stuck it on a full sheet label.
And here’s the final product on an envelope.:
If you’re handy with a knife, you can cut your own labels from our full sheet labels, the ML-0100. Seriously. This can be fun if you’ve got a steady hand and are artistic, and you assemble some simple tools, you can cut out your own labels. I just picked up a full set of knockoff x-acto knives at the 99 cent store. The weird thing is, they cost $1.29. What’s up with that? Nothing at the 99 cent store cost 99 cents anymore. They’re gonna have to come up with a catchy name that represents the cost of the products. While all of the items there are cheap, and 99.99% of the products are made in China, I’ve already ruled out the name Cheapy China, just because it doesn’t sound right, it’s not gonna attract customers.
Many of our customers also use the full sheet labels in Medical offices for Transcription labels.
Here’s a label I designed for the full sheet label. It’s a custom address label in the shape of a scroll. If you have good vision, and a good x-acto knifre, you should be able to do a knock up job. If you don’t have good vision, get a magnifying glass, or magnifying glasses, that should help you cut out the pattern.
Ok, now here’s the label after I cut it out and put it on an envelope. It’s taken on my webcam. Wow, I have to get a new webcam.
I feel like the next door neighbor whose full face you never saw on the old sitcom “home improvement“.
If you want to create PDF documents from an OpenOffice Draw Document, it’s no big deal. You don’t need any special software. Many other office products don’t have this feature, but with OpenOffice, you just need to click on File, then Export as PDF.
and here’s the final PDF:
So if you’re doing multiple copies of full sheet labels this is ideal.
I was at the service station to say goodbye to my Taurus and to sign it over to the junkyard. I had a long wait. So I had to use the facilities. Facilities indeed. Have you ever seen the movie Trainspotting? Yeah, it was kinda like that. I could have used some ML-0100 full sheet labels for maximum coverage to stick all over the place to make it seem clean. Gross.
