Seriously these are everything I ever wanted in 3/4 inch round circle dot labels. First off, these are circular, I might even say round. Secondly they are dots; no doubt about it, anyone that looks at these always comment on how these are mighty fine dots. Third, they measure 3/4" across which is exactly what I needed. I thought about 1/2" or even 1", but these turned out to be the perfect choice for me and I think you'll be happy with the size too. Finally, and perhaps most importantly they are labels. What do I mean by that? They peel off and stick to things just like labels do. I truly believe I will never buy another brand of 3/4 inch round circle dot labels again. Come to think of it, considering I needed 4 of them and now have 1,260 I don't think I'll ever have to buy any again.
We are moving. Again. Ah, the life of a pastor’s family. Anyway, we once again are faced with the dilemma of whether or not to try to bring everything or to cut back on what we own. We obviously decided that we could stand to lose a few things and so it is time for a massive garage sale and donating.
That’s where these come in. I ordered the pack of 2100 stickers, knowing that my 3 year old would steal a fair amount of them, which she did. Sigh. Either way, this was more than enough for a garage sale. I like the variety of colors, I used them to separate my items into categories but it would be a great way to divide up whose stuff is whose. I do wish that the colors were on different sheets though.
They stick pretty well on a variety of different surfaces. I have not run into an issue yet where they have come off of an item. The colors stand out nicely, making them easy to find when looking for a price. Size is good, I don’t think I would like them any larger, but I definitely wouldn’t want them and smaller. They are just big enough to be noticed, but not so big they overtake the item.
Taking them off of items is a little tricky since they do stick so well. They seem to leave a sticky residue more times than not and often the paper top will tear off only instead of the entire thing. That being said, you may want to place the stickers in an inconspicuous area. However, if you take a hair dryer to it (or even hot breath will work), the adhesive loosens and it peels off easier. Much like any sticker, they come off of things like hard plastic easier than, say, cardboard.
I didn’t use these in a printer at all, so I can’t say anything about that, but hand writing prices on them is easy enough. They take the ink just fine and don’t smear once dry.
I would recommend these to others and am happy with my purchase.
No disclosure needed - I am a “reviewer” of Amazon products and often get things at a discount, however this item I have bought at FULL price for my own personal use. Thank you for reading my review!
So, the template, as is, is a pain in the ar$e to work with in Word. I wanted to put pictures ontop of the stickers, needing to resize every one. Everytime I did, the circle template would resize as well. LAME. After struggling for what seemed like HOURS (probably 10 minutes, lol) I saved the template as a picture. This is easily accomplished with a snipping tool, probably already loaded on your Windows 8 or 10 computer. If not, Google it. When I did that, I pasted it on a fresh Word document, adjusted the margins to ZERO (even when it yelled at me) and VOILA!!! MUCH easier to work with. Hope that helps! The stickers arrived on time, exactly as described. I just wish they had made a more user friendly template.
I got the template from the website, pasted it into pptx, printed one sheet of labels with it with just empty circles to make sure the template lined up right, and it did not line up. Ok, let me change some settings... I have printed ten variations with different print settings, with lines to see if I could even get the right margins. A search for the proper steps to use their template showed me that everyone else has trouble printing with them, too. And I discovered that the labels themselves are not lined up well, either. There's a gap down the middle for their website, but it's centered, so i can work with that, but the gap that cuts across horizontally is not in the middle, so in addition to having a template that works, you also have to make sure you put the label sheet in the printer just right, or else only half of your labels will be printed properly. I'm tired of trying to do something that is normally super easy (I've printed a ton of labels on Avery's templates and never had issues that couldn't be resolved in less than a minute). I'm about to just make my own template! These labels go so close to the edge that normal print settings won't line up, although all of the Borderless settings in the print setup go too far. And the MS Word table version (instead of circles) template goes off the page so there's one row of labels on a second page, which means that it definitely will not line up with the sheet of labels. These templates were created without testing and are completely unusable. Wishing now that I had spent the extra money on the brand name labels that had fewer labels per sheet because at least I know they work!!
these labels were perfect for my project. i printed text to them and stuck them to the bottle caps on my homebrew beer so i could tell the types apart in the fridge. i've done ten cases of beer so far with them, and i still have probably a thousand stickers left.
the template kit from the garagesalepup.com website has several pre-filled versions of the template for these sheets. i used the blank one and filled each square on the template with the text i wanted. you have to be sure to keep the text in the right places, or it can throw off the margins a little. i also had to nudge the margins just a bit, because the text didn't center on the stickers perfectly (the print didn't bleed outside the sticker circle, but i wanted them to be as close to centered as possible). the sticker sheets fed through a laser printer just fine, and the printing was great. as for their application, they stuck to the bottle caps just fine, and i haven't had any issues with the adhesive coming loose when the bottles "sweat" a bit when warming up from refrigeration.
i'll probably keep using these for my bottling needs. might even get a little fancy and print small graphics to them instead of boring old text. you can tell by the attached picture, that the sticker size is perfect for bottle caps. i'm sure they'd work very well for garage sales, kids' crafts, and other things like that too. good buy!
These labels seem fine in terms of quality of print, ease or removal and adhesion. However, I wanted them for printed candy labels and I expected a template that made that easy. I was disappointed to find that the templates are merely the circles in which you have to cut and paste art and text for every single label in place. I'm used to Avery labels that allow you to design one label, then you populate the image according to how many labels you want. The worst part? When I printed them, they were off-center, meaning part of my painstaking work was cut off, making some of the labels useless.
If you are used to Avery products and templates, do not bother buying this item. It does not compare. They give you several template choices to down load, but if you are planning on using an ink printer to print them out, plan on only using one ot two letters/digits. Anything more will not print correctly on the stickers. In fact, the template doesn't even give you a way to add anything to the bottom row of stickers. Beyond disappointed in this item! If you, like me were buying them to make personalized stickers for the bottom of candy kisses - don't bother. The size is right, but you won't be able to print anything on them
I purchased these stickers with the intent of using them to organize inventory for my business. The stickers themselves look nice: bright and of consistent quality. They also stick well but not too well more often than not, which is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, that's where the positives end.
Initially, after having these stickers on a test batch of inventory for a few hours, I attempted to remove them to see if they would leave behind any residue. They passed with flying colors. As a result, I decided to utilize them with the rest of my inventory. Huge mistake.
Once these stickers would be applied for a day or more, they would leave sticker residue behind upon being removed. Now, I would have understood it if, let's say, 5% of the stickers would have left behind undesirables. Instead, 100% of them have left behind some form of residue, leading to extra work and aggravation for me in cleaning up the mess.
By the time all of my inventory has been cleared out, I will likely have wasted 7-8 hours in cleaning said residue. Needless to say, this is not what I had paid for.
My wife uses these to label cut fabric pieces in quilting, and for marking small fabric bundles and creations for sale. She averages a quilt per week, and intricate designs sometimes require several hundred pieces cut before sewing. We also use these with a color-coded inventory system in our pantry to ensure we use the oldest items first, a process that has taken on new importance during the COVID-19 lockdown. And they've served well in past garage sales. I haven't found a better price on this type of label without running into delivery reliability issues. Our last order was delivered in 4 days after placing the order on a weekend, and the labels were packaged very well so as to prevent creasing the label sheets. They can be a bit tricky to remove from non-porous (plastic, metal, paint) or dense paper product (cardboard) surfaces if they've been left on for several weeks or months, but this is a reasonable tradeoff considering that they stick reliably to everything on which we've put them.
Easy to print on my printer. I use them to label Instacart double or triple batches. Aka..when I take a shop for 2 or 3 people at the same time, they are labeled a b and c. I print a b and c on the dots to label each bag or product with the appropriate customer. It's fast and easy to peel off a label and stick it to a bag. But also nice to be able to stick them on things you can't put in a bag like 12 packs of soda, water, laundry detergent, etc. They look much more professional than writing a b or c with a magic marker. These labels don't fall off like the last ones I had. Works perfectly for what I need them for. And with very little effort.
