Natural Soap Labels

I've tried a lot of different versions of making soap labels.  And there are pros and cons to almost every type.  I always made my own labels on a computer and printer, and liked the 5 to a horizontal sheet, the best.  A sheet of tinted paper is 5 - 10 cents, making each paper label 1 - 2 cents plus the ink and the tape.  Making labels yourself allows for you to make special labels quick and easy, like for a special occasion.  The downside to this particular label is getting your cuts straight with scissors, to give it a professional look, and not like one of the kids labeled it.  Then you need two pieces of tape, a 2 sided tape for the inside and a one sided tape for the outside.  The inside tape will hold your label affixed after the soap shrinks a little bit more, then the label won't fall off. 

At the Artisan Store where I sell soap, I had to bag every bar to cut down on the escaping fragrances.  So instead of my traditional paper labels that people weren't seeing very well, I bagged the soap, tied it with a ribbon, and made sticky labels that I stuck to the front of each bag. 

But take a look at this soap label making page at and at the variety of labels, and get some great ideas on how you could label your soaps.
