    Where to buy return address labels

    Usually I have more address labels than I know what to do with, from various charities, etc, but I am out! And I need some! Anyone know where I can order some? Preferably cute ones

    Most of the check-printing companies sell them, i.e. Checks In The Mail. I've also bought them from Current, I think.

    Lara, I ordered from here once, years ago (and I'm still getting their catalogs )

    I've ordered from Current, but I've since found that it's much cheaper to print them myself on the computer.

    As you cook, you enjoy omniscience about food that no amount of label reading can match. Having retaken control of the meal from the food scientists, you know exactly what is in it. (Unless you start w/cream of mushroom soup, in which case all bets are off.) To reclaim control over one's food, to take it back from industry & science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time, cooking from scratch qualifies as subversive. ~~ Michael Pollan

    there's always Current. I haven't ordered from them in ages, but their stuff was always nice quality.

    I've used Colorful Images for things like that. https://www.colorfulimages.com//index.jsp

    I'm just amazed that you don't get unsolicited labels in the mail! Just this week we got some from March of Dimes and Audubon.

    Thank you for the ideas - I had some that I ordered eons ago, but I have no idea where they came from. I ran out of them while addressing birth announcements for DS (20 months ago!) and just recently have run out of the freebies that come in the mail.

    Of course, now that I have ordered some, when I pick up my mail today there will be some freebies in there

    If you want cute, check out WhateverZ and RockPaperScissors (I met both of these women through one of my mom networking groups)

    I know! I've been in the exact same situation -- usually I've finally tossed all the ones from charities and then had none at all. I used Artistic Labels, as posted by LA98.

    Our last batch came from http://www.familylabels.com/

    I also bought a self-inking stamp from a local stamp place so I'm never stuck without labels. I use that on bills and stuff I don't care about.

    When I run out of my purchased or charity return address labels, I print some up on Avery address label sheets. I do this anyway at Christmas, so I can have an address label that is similar to the card I'm sending out.

    When I order them, it's usually from Current. Although I'll have to check out some of the links posted here - very nice designs.

    You can get them and address stamps real cheap from Vista Print. I'm in the same situation. We moved into a new house in June and I've been anxiously waiting for the hoardes of free ones to come in the mail - finally this week, one trickled in.

    Smile COLORFUL IMAGES labels

    I always order my mailing address labels from COLORFUL IMAGES. I really love the snowman labels that I use with my Christmas cards.
