    I know there is a sticky about this above but it's outdated.
    Been looking at some of the main concentrate vendors and surprised to see very little by way of labels.
    I've even searched the world wide web but again there is very little out there.
    I have managed to come accross three sites that do them as listed below.
    Chefs do a couple of versions but the one i would have picked is out of stock.
    It also doesn't list how many you get so if anyone knows much appreciated.

    Anyway if you know anymore finished diy self adhesive diy juice labels or even others that are suitable could you please add here?

    Probably only good if you are local but JTF in Hucknall, bought a huge roll of sticky labels about 2 years ago for 99p, only half way through them!

    Go past it most days.
    Think im just going through a lazy stage.
    My writing is terible so lined spaces are a must and getting fed up of sellotape.
    Got plenty of small stickers which are okay but just want the ease of the little boxes to write in and the lines to set the words on.

    It really has surprised me how few of the really large diy mixing and oncentrate selling companies out there just don't sell any.

    @Chris K Is there a dedicated space on the labels of bottle shots or shortfills to add nic strength and mix date etc?

    No mate, they are just plain sticky labels, similar thing you'd use as an address label on a parcel.

    If it was me, I'd be tempted to go to a printing company and ask for a roll. Get exactly what you want and probably work out cheaper.

    I never even thought of this which surprises me as I'm not usually that dumb. I've just been writing on sticky notes, cutting it and taping it but it's a bit of a pain. The prices for these seem a bit ridiculous. I get that they're specifically labelled but I only write the name of the mix on mine and the rest of the details go into a database to track. Anyway I found these

    www.amazon.co.uk/Self-Adhesive-Address-Mailing-Stickers-1plusselect/dp/B079N4BZS3/

    which are 60mm by 30mm which is very close to the ones by chefs which are 63mm by 39mm, i just measured one out in paper cut to size to see how they'd fit and it's actually very close to the exact size of a normal 10ml bottle wrap around, I don't use those but it's good enough for gorillas and bigger too,enough depth for 3 normal size lines of writing or 4 smaller sized, can fit 5 cramped. even 10p for 10 is too much let alone 25p for one, I don't need that adding to my DIY costs. those amazon ones aren't fancy but they work out at 0.9p each

    another edit! actually these are cheaper at 0.75p per label
    www.amazon.co.uk/nuoshen-Self-Adhesive-Printer-Mailing-Stickers/dp/B07T6T2BPD/

    Obviously those are unlined, I don't need lines as I'm just writing the name but if you wanted to do your own custom labels as Chris K suggested i just had a quick look and stickylabels.com would do the following (62mm by 38mm) £30 for 250 (12p each), £36 for 1000 (3.6p), £58 for 2000 (2.9p) and so on. free delivery, 2 day dispatch. They won't look quite as fancy but they'll do the job. you can basically write them as text like :

    flavour ____________
    date ____________
    nicotine % _________

    you could actually design a fancy template and upload it for £4 extra if you wanted to. (4p per label at 1000)

    edit another thought, you could buy your own label printer with blank stickers and just type each label and print it.
    www.amazon.co.uk/Dymo-LabelWriter-Version-S0838810-Silver/dp/B07917K69Q/ref=sr_1_39?keywords=label%2Bgun&qid=1565780112&s=gateway&sr=8-39&th=1

    probably need to make around 10000 labels before you it becomes cost effective though. it was just a thought anyway.

    A little research to pay you back for the good idea of sticky labels! (which should have been obvious to me but wasn't!)

    Thank you @harumph for the above info.
    Standard labels are everywhere and very cheep too.
    I've also looked at custom labels but not really looking for anything above the types linked above so messaged Chefs to see what the quantities are and if they're getting the ones I like best back in stock.
    The below are from Wilcos and the little ones are okay at 78 ish for 50p or the bigger ones for bigger bottles are just plain chutney labels 100 for £1.
