Remove labels?

I have two different plastic tubs, one diaper wipe and other oxyclean.  I am wanting to reuse them but they do not have the old paper labels that I can get off.  So, how do I get the melted on or heated on labels off of these tubs?  Please advise?

How do I put labels in a front panel? Answered

I have made a multi-connections box for my computer that fits in a 5-1/4 bay. It has four USB ports, 1 Firewire, mic and earphones and several card readers. The front panel of the box is made of plastic and painted with spray paint to cover putty patches. I want to put logos for every connector, the USB logo, the Firewire logo, a logo of a mic, a logo of an earphone and the identification of each card slot (CF, SD, MS, etc) What are the ways of doing it with a factory-like finish? ¿custom decals? ¿Screen prints? ¿Is there any instructable about the matter?

Pasting luggage labels to a leather suitcase

Hi everyone, Looking for a bit of advice, I found an old cow hide suitcase and bought some vintage style adhesive luggage labels. Only question is how to I stop them peeling off. Can I varnish over the whole thing? If so what kind of varnish? I’m worried about damaging the already pretty shabby leather case. Is there a special kind of adhesive I should have used rather than relying on the stickiness of the labels?

But before my investor group will commit to stage 3 of funding (stage one was a small infusion for the chemistry and product development, and stage 2 is on my own dime). Now I have 30 days to come up with plans and a protoype assembly line to produce the first 500K in needs to be fully automatic, not least for each individual process. I have researched the net and there are alot of semi-auto systems i can fully automate, and the big boy systems are just out of my reach until I get stage 3 funding...i have to produce a min of this much product in an effort to get it on the shelves of the clients we have setup. I need to fill round bottles (2.5 and 4 oz and 12oz), fill flat sided quarts and gallons, and hopefully at some point round and flat sided 3,5,and7 gallon buckets. i know that this can be one machine with different run setups or 3-4 different similar systems. then I need a sealer, basically applies the pressure sensitive seal then heats it and seals it form spilling, tampering etc. then a separate system that screws the cap on finally and importantly applies either the peel and stick pressure sensitive pre-printed labels, or heat transfer label or silk screening... OK before anyone says a thing...i know its very complex, I know it's gonna cost some money, but I do know it can be done DIY style... so your thoughts, input, links to similar parts and pieces or ideas, etc...

Can someone build a handheld label applicator (specifically for barcodes) and post a "How To" instructable.

There are only a few companies that make handheld label applicators and they seem to be of similar design and quite expensive. I'd like to know if there is a creative individual out there capable of making a simple DIY version that the "average" person could build on their own. This applicator would be used for applying labels, such as barcodes, to products. Labels typically come in large rolls that vary in width from 1 -  4" in width.  Thank You

How do I change my monitor number label?

Here is what I think caused the problem. When I first created my computer and the mobo had no errors on it, I tried plugging it into my computer, however, it only showed 1/4 of the screen so I couldn't change my BIOs. So I plugged it into my 1920x1080 55" tv using an HDMI cable instead of a VGA and I could then see the full BIOs. So I ran Windows 7 off of that TV screen to set it up. Now when I plugged it into my 1366x768 monitor, it recognized it as monitor number 2, which isn't much of a problem. Here is my problem. Whenever I extend displays from my computer monitor to my 32" tv in my bedroom, it recognizes my TV as monitor number one and puts my Explorer.exe and my desktop icons over there onto my TV instead of my computer. Here is my question: How do I change my monitor label so the desktop stays on my computer? Or at least the explorer.exe and desktop icons stay on my computer..

In the new editor if you have a situation like the attached image where you create a label near the edge of the screen, when you click save it thinks you have clicked outside the image and moves to the next image instead of saving. The workaround is to save it further to the left and then drag it into position. Windows 8.1 update, Chrome Version 34.0.1847.131 m

How to make product labels? (paper choices, design in adobe, etc.)? Answered

Hey all, I've been lurking around here for the past few weeks and finally got a membership.  Anyway, I had an idea I would like some help with: I'm looking to make a gag/stocking stuffer gift (relabeled product) for a friend.  The idea is to take a can of spam and relabel it as unicorn meat (I saw this in a Think Geek catalogue).   Dark, I know, but he would think it was really funny.  The questions I have are: what kind of paper would work the best for this purpose? (photo paper is too thick to wrap around the can, generic printer paper is too thin and would fall apart, so what would be the "goldy-locks" paper?)  Also, this part may be more complicated as I am a photoshop novice, but what would be the easiest way to design a Hormel Unicorn Meat label in Photoshop? Thanks!

Cleaning Glass Cullet: getting the labels off already smashed bottles

Short Ver:  I'm looking for a way to get the paper, foil, glue, and plastic labels off the bits of glass that have been smashed at the recycling center. Long Story:  There are several good uses for recycling glass cullet, the glass is plentiful at the local recycling center, they get very little for it because there isn't a re-user within efficient shipping range.  I was looking into buying recycled glass to use in a project, but shipping to get it delivered is outrageous $.  I want to start off with glass as the aggregate in concrete countertops.  That's a lot of glass - a couple hundred pounds per countertop.  Yes, they're very heavy.  I've internet searched to my bandwidth limit.  No-one nearby does the glass cullett thing. So, I went to the local recycling center and picked up a couple of 5 gallon buckets of smashed glass.  Really great.  Now, how do I get all the labels off?  Thanks, Ruby

Long Story: There are several good uses for recycling glass cullet, the glass is plentiful at the local recycling center, they get very little for it because there isn't a re-user within efficient shipping range. I was looking into buying recycled glass to use in a project, but shipping to get it delivered to KANSAS is outrageous $. I want to start off with glass as the aggregate in concrete countertops. That's a lot of glass - a couple hundred pounds per countertop. Yes, they're very heavy. I've internet searched to my bandwidth limit. No-one nearby does the glass cullet thing. So, I went to the local recycling center and picked up a couple of 5 gallon buckets of smashed glass. Really great. Now, how do I get all the labels off? Thanks, Ruby

What are the "Cost" and "Difficulty" sliders in the publishing section for? Answered

When you publish a new instructable, there are those two little sliders labeled "Cost" and "Difficulty". What are they for? They aren't even labeled! How do I know how difficult "Difficult" really is, or how expensive "Expensive" really is?

how can you determine if an audio amplifier circuit is for 4 ohm or 8 ohm speaker?

Most audio amplifiers are labelled "use with 8 ohm speaker" and a like. what if there is no label? how can you determine what speaker to be used? speaker impedance well suited for an amplifier circuit depends on what electrical component?

Vizio [VA22L FHDTV10T] flat screen TV will not stay on?

I have a 22" Vizio TV that powers up, Vizio label turns white then blue screen comes on for just a second and goes black but label stays white. The TV is only a few years old and I was using it as a monitor for my computer. Is this an easy fix? or will it cost more than it's worth?

Help please.  I keep getting "loading" bar across the photos in Instructables.  The pictures show up, but I'm wondering if the labels for the photos are not "loading"

The kind of content to post

I am trying to find out a little more information before I post something. The site doesn't seem to have a page telling what it's all about. Do you have to post about something you made by hand? For example, our company helps customers design woven labels for clothing. So, can I give examples and step by step instructions about  how to design a woven label? Ultimately, they'd have to order the labels with us after they design them. Would that be viewed as poor taste, like we are trying to promote our website? If you want to see what I'm talking about, you can always review the site and see if it qualifies Thanks!

WANTED: Your Ways to inscribe / label / letter plastic cases 'n stuff REWARD :)

Hi Folks Did you ever successfully apply a small lettering onto something? Your methods of making labeling/lettering on a quite small scale would be very appreciated!Maybe people from the miniature/model scence have some idea?I want to 'casemod' my TI-92 Plus and CBL-2 to look similar AND nicer. They are housed in some not that beautiful grey plastic. I thought of just applying some primer and paint, but that would make all the important small inscriptions disappear and since there are plenty of them, I can't have that. I bought some letraset lettering sheets on ebay, but those are only one color and a bit too big...WANTED:A method to apply small (<=0,1 inch) yet accurate lettering onto plastic/metal/paint. Durability is not important since I will apply about 5-10 layers of varnish. Some opacity/covering power would be good though. And I need to be able to do it in at least two colors.REWARD: I offer two (full) cases of Altoids for the person, whose technique I use in the process. (Of course an instructable will document the build!)This is kind of arbitrary but I want to spice up the deal a bit...Thank you!Maniacy
