Introduction: Waterproof Your Address Labels!

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.
