News from the Store: New Econo labels

September 1, 2019
We want to tell you about a change we've made to our Pre-Numbered Econo labels. For a long time, they were made in-house and we were never quite happy with the quality. It was hard to get the printing right, they were frequently off center, and the paper was suboptimal: too thin. But it was the best paper we could find.

The thing is, we want to deliver a product that we can be proud of. So from now on, they will be printed by the same company that prints our print-on-demand Bookplates. If you've ever ordered pre-numbered Bookplates, or any kind of custom Bookplates, you know the quality they are capable of. If you haven't, you might want to try them some time... they're really good!

Our new Prenumbered Econo Labels...
- are square, not rectangular. This allows them to be cut from the same size paper as our Bookplates, without any waste. The total surface area is a bit larger.
- are of a better printing quality, done on better paper than before.
- have back slits for easy peeling.
- come with a bright yellow Ballycumber logo.
- will in the future allow us to offer more different languages, since they can be printed on demand.
- cost a little bit more than non-numbered ones, to cover part of the higher cost of printing. The difference is around 10%. You'll see this difference when you select the Pre-numbered option in the Store.

Oh, and while we have your attention: Surprise September is now on. Don't forget to take advantage of it and let us surprise you!
