I've been expirimenting for so long with different kinds of lebels for my lip balms. So far, I havn't been satisfied and I need help! Ive tried regular mailing labels (not sticky enough) and clear mailing labels (Smudge off after a while) and not to mention none of these labels are the right size. Can anyone tell me what kind they use for their 0.15ml lip balm tubes and where to buy them? Thanks a bunch!

I played around in publisher, and just printed them on plain(or colored) paper. I use a glue stick to adhere to the tube.Usually take a piece of packing tape and place that around the label also.  They also sell little bags that go around the tube, you apply heat with a hair dryer and they are encased then. I use the bags when I'm selling at a craft show so they are nice and unopened!

i have shrink wrap for all my lip tubes but im still not happy with the labels :*( I have contemplated the tape thing though, perhaps i can use the paper labels and then stick them on securly/waterproof them by applying the clear labels i use... but somehow that would seem may too time consuming and probably just easier to get waterproof labels :/ LOL

The packaging tape is pretty much the right size for lip balm tubes! Discovered that by accident once, and they have rolls you can just tear, you don't have to cut with scissors. I put paper labels on my scrubs and shea butter too now and top with the tape!

i will definately try that! i came across a supply site in Canada on the web (cant remember the name for the life of me though) and they had shrink bands for lip balm tubes that you can take the top off and leave the bottom on... must buy! lol

I had to use this in my graphic design classfor designing a label. Its sticks very well to paper, It may stick well to plastic tubes but I can't say for sure. It is a little pricey though... your only saving grace would be how many labels you can get out of one sheet.

Its a sugesstion... it might not be too viable, but this stuff id neat nonetheless...

Good luck with your lip balm!
