I am going to start printing laser warning stickers. I am going to use the Label Generator from Label Generator - Safe Lasers - Laser safety information, tools, and free warning labels.
This generator provided by twhite828.

Sorry for the terrible quality picture I took with my cell phone. Objects are for size comparison. I'll post some higher quality pictures soon.

The labels will be 1" square and printed on high quality silver foil stock. I will be using a very high DPI professional LaserJet printer resulting in a high quality label

This first batch will consist of "Custom" labels at the "Standard" label price. So now is a great chance to get your labels at 50% off.

This is a limited time offer. Eventually the "Standard" labels will be based on the most popular laser configurations and for an additional fee the "Custom" labels for your unique laser designs will also be available.

For this first batch only the cost will be
1st label: $1.00
Each additional label: $.50

This price includes shipping to the United States. International Shipping will be offered for an additional $1.25


Here are the categories you can test it on the link above.

Wavelength (nm):

Output power (mW):

System type:

Class:

Sign:

Override beam color to red?

So if you are interested please send me a PM. Please try to avoid placing orders via a forum post. This will make it easier for everyone.

This is a fact finding batch to see if there is enough interest to keep it going. There will be no need to arrange payment until I decide there is enough interest to pursue. Just let me know if you are interested and how many you'd like.

*Please note that all currency conversions are the responsibility of the potential buyer.

Sorry for the confusion, I have edited the post to explain further. You won't use the label generator to order the labels, you can merely use it to see what your graphic will look like. If you are interested please PM your specs and the quantity you'd like and I can get that taken care of.

To place your order, I recommend generating the label on my site, using your browser to get its URL (on Firefox, right click -> copy image location), then pasting a link in this thread or PM. This way he can click the link and copy / paste the label you want.

For example:
Label 1
Label 2

And I realized just now I didn't answer your PM - but you're selling these so cheap I have zero problems with you propagating warning labels for our lasers. ;)

Trevor thanks for the endorsement. I am not trying to get rich or anything just make my addition to the community.

You can place orders or make request either way thanks for mentioning the alternate method.

Here are some more pictures. These are not of the foil label since they have not arrived yet. This is the size that they will be and very similar in quality. The final version on the foil will look a little more crisp.

I just taped the 1''x1'' square to my host for these photos.

If need be, I can make a high-resolution override so that it will print better.

Just a heads up everybody:

I had to alter the rate for international shipping due to processes outside of my control. I don't however want anyone to think they are being taken advantage of. I'm not intentionally trying to gouge our international customers on shipping. So I am offering you some transparency on the shipping costs I am incurring.

I am using The United States Postal Service International First Class postage since it is the cheapest. $0.75 to Canada, $0.79 to Mexico, $0.98 to all other countries


The real culprit is PayPal
According to their website:

"Fees for receiving payments from buyers outside the United States 3.9% + $0.30 USD"

I figure the worst case scenario is $2.25 for one label shipped internationally. The more labels you purchase the more we both will be able to capitalize on postage and PayPal fees.

For such tiny amounts, you can get around ebay fees by having the payments sent
as "personal" -> "gift"s. Downside to the buyer: can never dispute.

That is true the "personal gift" option is there but I like the security for everyone involved by using the "goods" option.

I just wanted to update everyone on this. I am still planning to print these soon. The labels that were sent to me were the wrong labels so I have to wait for the correct ones to arrive so everyone who has placed orders hold tight they are coming!

After waiting way too long the labels have arrived! I hope to print a first run today and get some pictures up tonight or tomorrow.
