As for labeling techinques, I do the following: I use Microsoft ACCESS
software to keep my garden records on. I then use the label part of the
software to design the label type I want, including font, size and info.
I print them 14 to a 8 1/2 X 11" sheet (2 rows of 7). I then take the
printout and go to a copier and copy onto AVERY #6725 Non-Tear White
sheets. This is a vinyl-like material. I cut to the size I need, (using
the Paw-Paw 1 1/4 X 3 1/2 medal label) and glue with E-6000 or GOOP, or
any other water-proof stickum' I have used this for 3 1/2 years and they
have with stood all weather types. I'm not sure if Avery still makes
the 6725, but someone has simular material you can use.
