    I designed mine in Gimp and used https://www.uprinting.com. Was $45 for 100 3x3 labels. Not sure why I chose the sticker product I did, but looking now, there are much cheaper options on their site in the same size

    2015 - Small operation. 25 buckets. One excited 5 year old and one 35 year old that feels 5 again.
    2016 - One year older. New Homemade 2x4 Arch, Smoky Lake Pan and looking at 52 maples, 17 box elders and 2 walnut trees.
    2017 - Shurflo 4008 hooked to 42 stingy silver maples and a few Norways. A couple buckets on sugars and Norways. 10 box elders.
    2018 - ...a few more taps.
    2019 - ...more taps on 3/16 gravity. This spiral is heading downward in a hurry.
    2020 - 4x400 RO - RB20 (uh-oh!)

    I had 300 labels made in 3.25 x 2.75 by my previous printer for $72.00. Little Tapper, If you would use many more in 2 years time you will get a better price doubling or tripling the order. The first 100 cost the most by far. However most will say the adhesive gets weaker after 2 years.
    Dave Klish about 400 taps, down from much more. Retired from collecting and boiling in 2021. Mostly because of a bad hip.

    I used about 75 more of the new grade labels today, I still like them, but of course the real test will be the test of time.

    Yeah, I could get a better price. I just don't end up using them. People who get my syrup generally don't need the labels. If I expand, maybe. I use a few here and there.
