Free labels??

I keep seeing things for FREE labels to put in BC books, but I cannot seem to find ANY that are free--that can simply be printed at home and put into the book. Am I missing something??

Hi, and welcome! There was a recent site upgrade, which omitted the most obvious link to the free-labels page; you can find it here:

http://www.bookcrossing.com/labels

There's also a link to that page in the "how to BookCross" section under the "information" tab.

Note that, at present, only the blank labels on that page are free to all; just print them out and write each book's BCID in as you register your books. (The prenumbered labels currently require "wings" membership, but unless you want to register a lot of books at once, there's no real advantage to the prenumbered labels.)

You *can* register books without printed labels of any kind; you could just write the registration information in the book by hand. But if you prefer printed labels, the free PDF file from the link above should do the trick - and there are also a number of member-designed labels, if you'd like to try different styles:

Hope you enjoy BookCrossing!

There are off-site links to lots of free member-created labels in this thread, too: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/358601

Enjoy!

I usually click on the last of these on http://www.bookcrossing.com/labels - which is the simple free label. I simply print off and write in numbers myself. Today I find that it is not clickable. Is this new? How can I find the (I think it is a) pdf for simple labels please. I like to put a small label on the front cover as well as inside and the custom labels are just too big.
Thank you

The link to "Download 10 blank Avery 2x4 labels" should still work for everyone. (The prenumbered-label links currently work only if you have wings, but since you mention writing the BCIDs on the labels yourself, it doesn't sound as if you were using prenumbered labels.)

Here's a direct link to the blank-label PDF file:

If you can't access that, is it possible that your PDF viewer is out of date?
