Personalizing cigars isn’t as hard as you may think. You can use your own logo, brand name or art to give it the personal touch you are looking for. There are many reasons to make your own cigar labels such as for marketing purposes, weddings, parties or conventions. Any time you would want to pass out cigars or even keep them for your own use, it’s nice to have your own labels. There are many cigar label companies out there where you can just give the company details and specs on how you want your labels, but it may be more economical to do it yourself.
If you are doing it for business purposes, it is probably better to have them made by a professional. After all, you are trying to impress them with your taste and style. Unless you’ve made your own labels before, they could come out looking amateur and it simply isn’t worth the risk as a professional.
To make the labels yourself, all you need are the cigars, a computer (with a printer) and Avery 5366 labels. To get to the Avery format just go to labels and options for different sizes should come up. Sometimes the old Word software doesn’t have this label. In that case, your picture file should have a width of 200 pixels and the height should be 39 pixels. You can also use any type of paper your printer will allow, it’s up to you but Avery is a standard label format already contained within your computer. Depending on how much you know about computers you may be able to add art, or not. It is easier, of course, to just type out a name and try different fonts and sizes. Play around with the look of your label by trying different graphics and sizes. If you have artwork and are able to upload it to your computer, it should be an easy copy and paste on the Avery format. Once you have your label designed, copy and paste it throughout the page to create multiple labels.
You can also look online to find a format from many cigar websites or search engines.
You own labels are just minutes away. Don’t make it more complicated than it is – the design is likely the hardest part. When you’re done printing out your labels you are ready to stick them on your cigars and start puffing away. Enjoy!
