Computer programme for apple juice labels ?

Has anyone got a programme or recommend one, so that I can make my own labels for apple juice ?

Hi Bodger

You can do it in Word
Create a table with each cell the size you want. For example create a table with 5 columns (default anyway)and about 9 rows. Set the depth on the rows to be about twice the width of the columns.  Then create the image you want for the label in the first cell using clip art and formatting your text to suit. Copy the contents of the cell and paste into the others print off use a guillotine to cut it up neatly you have labels

Cheers

That's what I was going to suggest - Word is an awesome program if you know how to use it and have an enquiring and creative mind

In fact if you don't mind older versions of the extended version of the software that come with books  for Serif stuff Kaz/Bodger I believe I have several I don't want anymore. In fact may have more than one of the same programmes just upgraded versions over years.

If so will post them up at some point in next few days for anyone that wants them! However Kaz/Bodger you are more than welcome to first dibs if you like!

I did my egg labels on word & bought them (avery labels) from a guy called Dunning Computer Services. very quick, cheap & helpful.

and found you some info.....

went to a funded seminar thing last Friday night (meal for 2 at the Lanhydrock Golf Club).  Got talking to the guy seitting next to me who is a tree surgeon.  He is getting a freebie trip (all paid) to Belgium for 2 weeks on orchards and apple growing through Eucan and a place in Dorset called the Branscombe centre.

What printer will you be using?

Inkjet, lazer, thermal transfer, dot matrix lol?

B&W or colour?

Inkjets can run when they get wet. Choose one with water proof inks.
lazers are costly to buy & run
thermal's can only do B&W & can go black if they get hot
