How To: cheap soap labels

How to Create Your Own Soap Labels

I hand-make all my own soap labels. Not only is it cheaper to do, but it's also fun! It does take a little bit of time and patience, but it's worth it if you want a cheap, customized option.  

Supplies: 

  • Cardstock paper (of your color choice) 
  • Color printer
  • Scissors
  • Powerpoint (or you can use google slides)
  • Hot glue gun or superglue

Useful sites:

  • for fonts: dafont.com 
  • for logos and designing: canva.com 
  • for inspiration: pinterest.com and etsy.com 

Steps: 

Step 1: In Powerpoint, make 5 to 7 (depending on how tall you want your labels) uniform rectangles spanning the width of the slide.

These will be your label guides for where to cut.

Step 2: Insert your logo/label design in the center of the rectangles.

I find it useful to turn on the ruler setting under "view" . You can use the ruler to adjust your logo width depending on the size of your soap

Step 3: Add a text box to the far left/right side of your labels for ingredients or added company info

Step 4: Print the slide onto cardstock paper. Make sure to print it "fit to page"

Step 5: Cut out the labels using the guide lines you created. Cut off any excess as needed

Step 6: Use a hot glue gun (or super glue) to glue the back of your labels
