Introduction: Waterproof Your Address Labels!

About: Just an ordinary teen who likes to work with Arduino and other programming electronics and 3D Printers

Have you always had trouble writing your labels then spilling liquid in it? Or have you had trouble taking your parcel in the rain ? Then this is the perfect solution on how to make your labels waterproof.

Supplies:

  • Candle
But if you want to test it out these are the full supplies:
  • Labels
  • Pen
  • Water (any liquid)

Step 1: Before

So this is what it will look like when you spill liquid on a label with ink and trying to rub it out.

Step 2: After

So this is what it will look like with wax spread on the label.

Sorry for the dirtyness of my label, this is due to dirty candle.

Warning: This will not rub out the ink, I used another label stuck on it

    Hi - I always use packing tape but kinda like this idea as much - no one in our house is gonna nick a candle but you can becha life when ya want some, some bugger has used the tape.
    Will keep this in mind.
    Good job - simple but effective.

    I just put clear packing tape over the label. Laser printing is not terribly affected by water either. It is melted plastic to begin with.
