    Ammo Case Labels

    I got my wife a Cricut (Craft Machine) for Christmas and she's been wanting to make me something. I generally don't have a problem with these MTM cases but I made up a design in PowerPoint and she put it in the software. I think it turned out pretty good. (Minus my application causing bubbles).

    Looks good!
    You can take a small needle,and stick them bubbles,and smooth them out a good bit.
    I am a tight wad,and use PO shipping labels for every thing from targets,to ammo labels.

    Yeah, I usually just stick a notecard inside but she had the vinyl and is kind of addicted to this thing.

    I put all my load info on the back of old business cards, then use clear packing tape to stick them to the box. This way, it all peels off without leaving anything behind.
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    If its a plastic sticker, put it on wet like the directions are for window tint and push the water out.
    Ya shouldn't have any bubbles.
    It wasn't playing the blame game, finding fault, and complaining about every little thing that made America great.
    It was God, guns, and guts.

    I use a Brother Label Printer - this looks like a neat answer too!

    Your labels really look professional! My kudos! I have a Brother Q500 -- and, like two above posters, use it to make my labels. That the load, date, and other pertinent data is readily typed in is a big plus! NOT to "dis" the Cricut -- we gifted one to our younger son family, and to voice the tee-shirts they put on Cricut-made designs on is "awesome" (not to mention a few gifted to us ) would be an understatement. Here's a paste of one of my ammo labels:

    To me, it's like bridges - There are a LOT of ways to build a safe bridge, just pick one you like

    I do like having the loading data on there, safe is good in reloading too

    I've been using a label maker for years. I put labels on the lid top and on one end for easier identification no matter how they are stored. Also, a drop of super glue keeps the labels from popping off later on.
