Harrrrrrrrrrrrr!

What is your gut telling you today? I am behind you no matter what it's called. I really like the way the sauces turned out, I have no doubt you'll do the same with the spices.

Plot twist: Even though I'm only making 50 bottles at a time, I have to buy 1000 labels at a time.  I may have to find an alternative to the label production, and maybe print them myself.

 

I'll update soon.

 

Edit: clarified production type

“Experience” is just another term for time that has passed since you figured out what not to do.

Take your time and make sure the labels are right.  1000 might last you a few years, but you want them to look good and professional.  I don't remember what you're paying for roll stock, I think I'm at about $150 for the first 1000 with some set up charges, etc, and about $50 for every 1000 after that.  Last order I placed for 3 different labels (total of 6000) came to .084 cents per label. 

 

PS- really hoping you don't use "adobo" in the name.........

Using a 3x6" white gloss with overlaminate, rounded corner, #4 wind on roll:

 

$50 per plate (color)

$98 for 1000 (9.8 cents each)

$182 for 2000 (9.1 cents each)

 

So each variant will cost me $198 for 1000 plus shipping

 

This line is on hold temporarily as I try to figure this out logistically.  It's a nice "want to have" set of 3 spices, but I'm not entirely sure if I need to have it yet.  I have a BBQ sauce that people have been bugging me to make which will cost more, but that $600 (for labels) and production cost could go towards making the BBQ first.

The downside to making so many over your requirement is, what happens if you want to change it? 

 

I've modified almost every one of my labels from batch to batch. This batch I'm re-making purple and taking "extra" off (it's not an "extra mild", it's a "mild") - fortunately I only had 50 or so labels left from my last run. I hate burning 50 labels, but that's only ~$5

 

1000 labels extra is a lot of waste if you find a mistake. And you might find something that isn't a mistake that you just need to change anyway.

 

 

Food for thought
