  1. What a cool idea! I love personalizing my own stuff and those “transparent” labels you buy from Avery aren’t really clear. Do you know if this works with a print out from laser printer? If so you could add colors to the label. I am definitely going to try.

    1. Hello, Laurie – Thank you so much for visiting my blog! It means a lot to me… Yes, it works like charm for the laser printers. And you could make colored labels with this method too. Isn’t that awesome? I currently don’t have a color printer, so I had to go with black and white quotes with no option.
