    Hi,
    I bottled a bunch of honey in this style oval hex jar (the 9oz size). I've locally seen several other honeys packaged in this jar, but I can't seem to find who makes the right size label for it. Beekeeping suppliers seem to be a bust, and i haven't been able to find something quite right from Avery, etc.

    Does anybody else here use these jars? If so, where/how do you get your labels made?

    Thanks; it's driving me a little crazy.

    Can't say I have. Have you considered a label for the lid instead?

    I looked at the link you provided, and that manufacturer sells labels. Didn't look for the prices though.

    The manufacturer doesn't seem to actually have a label for that jar. The labels on their site are all rather large, and I don't think they specialize in honey containers in particular. It's not where I purchased the jars anyway, just a quick link to an image I found.

    Can't tell what size the jar actually is. Measure the area where you want to put the label, Brushy Mountain, and Mann Lake both offer several different size/styles of honey labels.

    These folks have a ton of labels, all sizes and shapes, flat and gloss, water resistant, etc:

    I use their gloss labels for 1 pound jars, 8 ounce bears, and 2 ounce bears.

    If you print your own labels (using a computer program), you could try using a label that fits around a corner on two sides of the bottle and print on it in two columns. It might even be a nice innovation. :idea:

    Here's what I settled on for my bottles:
    The outside of the label,

    and the inside.

    Thanks to Perrybee for the idea.

    A beautiful and very aesthetic solution. Good move. You'll sell for a premium price. Don't short change yourself.:thumbsup:
