Decisions, decisions – what do you put on a honey label and how much should it sell for? We put half of the honey that we extracted into the classic glass jars (the white-capped jar), the other half into plastic squeeze jars (the yellow-capped jar), and came up with preliminary labels as shown below. According to the Medina Bee Keepers Association, the labels are fine in terms of required information and a reasonable price is $7.00 per jar (per lb). What do you think of the labels, what are they missing, and does the price sound reasonable? Is it important to state that it’s raw, filtered honey?
It’s already been pointed out that there’s no website link (bramblestonefarm.com) on the label (how could I have forgotten that?) and that a bee on the logo might be appropriate.
The labels are printed on plain, white paper – would it be worthwhile to go with glossy or water-resistant labels (at nearly twice the cost)? Consumer honey experts (that’s all of you that buy honey), what do you think?
