    OK, I have no idea how much these cost. I don't really care ;-). what really matters here is these are free! as long as you don't mind taking a few moments to do it... I made 24 labels out of one 2 liter soda bottle... remove the label. cut off the top where it stops the bend. also cut the bottom off at the bend. then cut the bottle long ways from top to bottom. and those strips in half. if you want, you can trim one side to make kinda a point for that professional look... and ease of insert into the medium. just throw away the parts that has the glue from the soda label. bam! there you go. they may be different sizes. but who cares? the names are different lengths right? hehe.
    later,

    How do you write on it? Theyre clear right?

    Thats a good idea. I may try that if I get up the de-lazyness factor in my body. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Sharpies. The bane of Greg. I had one - Kuz they're handy. And it disappeared. I got another - evaporated... I purchase another - didnt disappear, but when I went to write nothing came out... It just wasn't meant to be....

    Andrew, really good idea. i got a bunch of 2-3 liter bottels and was going to buy some lables to put into the plants pots. now since i don't need them. i'll cut one up to do that. thanks for the idea. also it wasn't free you still had to pay for the bottel when u bought the drink. so why not put it to good use.

    George-cp... although you "pay" for the bottle, you didn't "buy" the bottle right? ...you buy the contents of the bottle. I dunno about where all of you are. but here, you can use the bottle to do what you want. or put it in the can the city picks up to recycle it. I would rather use it myself. so I see that as... well... FREE!!! hehe

    Well it does cost more to buy a drink in the bottel than it does to get i out of the fountain at the store. i get the bottle cause it is easyer to carry around when i'm out riding my bike around.

    also don't throw away the bottom. it can always be used as a small pot to plant something in later on.

    I've used the white yogurt containers for this purpose. But really, those label tags are really cheap about 5 Canadian cents each. The deposit on the 2L bottle is 20 cents. I'd rather pay the extra few cents and not have to settle for second-rate plant labels.
