  • I'm looking for 8.5x11 clear labels

    Anyone know what company might produce 8.5 x 11 clear labels to use in a laser printer? We need to make footprints on a carpet, and want to avoid cutting out the foot shape. So if we could get clear labels, that would work, but I don't see anything on Xerox or Avery's sites.

        There are specialty print shops that can usually do this type of thing with vinyl. I had to do some window stickers recently, seems like that might do the trick. I don't remember the cost, but I don't think it was outrageous. There are different types of adhesive, too, depending on how permanent you want them to be.

          but I guess I am not getting how you stick this to carpet (or why), so maybe not. ?? lol

            Hey what about printing them on a transparency (hp makes transparency acetate 8.5 x 11 for inkjet and laser printers), then use a dab of rubber contact cement to afix them on the carpet. The dab of rubber cement should hurt the carpet at all and should come off easily.

            I am sure you could find some clipart foots prints, possibly at www.clipart.com or a similar site.

                Find a local sign shop with a Gerber 'EDGE'. They can print an 11.5" path and cut a 12.5" path on vinyl rolls and CLear Static Cling. Light tack non-adhesive (no glue to clean up), variety of colors, reusable - a nice product.

                Can also be made on clear vinyl with permanent adhesives. Even make them out of flocking (fuzzy iron-on stuff).

                  No one is asking how long you want em to last...
                  Anything stuck to carpet (depending on the nap) lasts as long as it takes the first person to walk over it usually. Some of the Avery floor graphic systems say they'll stay stuck to low-nap industrial carpet but you'll have to find a print vendor that prints them (many sign shops do). BUT, I've only seen them barely make it thru a trade show stop without edge rolling or lifting.

                  Have you considered stencils and paint?

                      Stencil and Paint. I think I said that too...


                      Crafts are fun?
                      But can you do them with a computer?
                      I mean, I don't know if I can do crafts if I can't at least be holding my mouse in one hand...

                            Hi Miss and welcome to GDF.

                            You could look into Lynda.com. My library membership includes a free subscription, maybe yours does too? If not the monthly subscription fee is pretty affordable....

                            Lynda.com has a bunch of courses and tutorials. However it would be a monthly fee to subscribe to lynda.com and based on your Adobe post it doesn't sound like you want a monthly commitment.

                            You could buy the CS6 version. I'm not sure if Adobe still offers that on their website but you might find it on eBay or Amazon.

                            The line weight is still too thin and fragile looking. They appear grayed out like something is missing. It's fine to use some gray but it is a bit too weak. How are you going to print gray? A spot color?...

                            Only you are noticing the line weights because you did them. They are not varied and heavy enough. Make a copy and try it with different line weights that are heavier and even variable.
