    making labels for food storage

    i didnt want to hijack the tupperware thread, so i thought i'd start another!

    i use the decor containers in my pantry (have bought one big lot, and am waiting for a sale in Kmart to get the next lot!) i want to make labels, but not sure how to go about it!

    id prefer to have printed labels, i was thinking maybe typing them up and having them laminated? but i thought they may be too small to laminate? maybe i could use thin cardboard just cover with clear contact? and stick on with flat double-sided tape maybe?

    does anyone have any better ideas??

    Dynamo you can change size of writing and it prints on sticky white paper!!

    not very technical, but i use white 'quik stik' self adhesive labels you get from officeworks or supermarket and write neatly.

    I use a chinagraph pencil so I can easily change them over, and also use this to label my frozen meals.

    If you do want to print, simply take an A4 sheet with all the labels printed on it to officew....s or somewhere like that to get it laminated. Then just use scissors to cut them out. It will only end up costing you a few dollars.
