What fun things do people put on honey labels?
And yes, I’ve seen these posts:
With a big crop coming from my 3 hives have made some labels in anticipation
The watermark won’t be included
I’d say start with a catchy name? I’m in the same boat currently- need my own label. If you plan to sell to shops lots of them would like a barcode. You have to buy them. That’s about as far as I’ve got…
@Andrew I did a degree in Multimedia and Web design, Photo manipulation, Film, video and editing techniques, 3D Animation etc but I have not got the use of expensive software any more nor licences so have to use Open Source kit (which is strangely enough what my dissertation was about) - so don’t judge me too critically …

But have a ton of space on the back label that I don’t know what to do with.
Things I’ve seen on other labels include:
tastes damn good
my honey is 100% organic
And my wife had the idea that I have an outlined, simple map of Rwanda with a star from where the honey comes from.
What fun ideas do you have? Please don’t get all technical on me, I’m giving this away and will not entertain critical or annoying responses!
