How does one print those tiny labels that go in the bottom of Gem Jars to designate what kind of meteorite is inside? Is there a special label paper you use?

Hi Ira,

I use MS-Word and one of the label templates for address labels. I enter the information in the fields and then print it out. Then I trim the label down to size with scissors. This method gives you an entire sheet of small labels - you can mix and match, or do a whole page of the same meteorite. :)

Best regards,

MikeG

Thanks, Mike. Easier than I thought. Except for the scissors part. I'm terrible with scissors.
