Welcome to the new source for FREE downloads for your vudeo collection. I got sick of seeing my collection have handwritten labels on the side. I want to show my collection off with unqiue designs. The three I'm currently using won't be on display since they will be offered in future contests already made for all entries.
Now, there are no catch 22's here. These are free for you to download as you choose. If you would like me to make special spine labels with pictures or text you have in mind, just e-mail me and I'll craft them up for ya ship them back as soon as I can. Hey who says we all can't have fun and share in the experience of making your video tape collection look wicked!
Downloading is the easy part, wrong. It is one of the easy parts. The best way to do these if first download them to your hard drive or a disk.
Then open which ever word processor program you use. Copy and Paste the image from where ever it opens up at, (ie picture program), and past the image. You'll need to resize the object as you see fit. I recommend from top to bottom 3/4 (three quarters of an inch) left to right I recommend just a tick longer than 5 and 1/2 inches. If you make them a little longer or wider you can always cut them down when you get to that point.
Once you've resized it, copy and paste all the way down the page and leaving an empty text line in between. Just hit return twice after you paste each image.
You're ready to print. WAIT, you need the right kind of paper. I recommend White Full Sheet Labels. It's sticker paper. Avery makes the paper for both InkJet and Laser printers. I have an ink printer and I use the number 8255. That's to help you find the kind of sticker papers that I use. Print up the labels, and cut them out and place them on the spine (side) of your vhs cassete tape.
Normally I fit 9 spine labels on one page in my doc file and cutting them out is good. Before you remove the backing, check to make sure the size is good so is doesn't overlap the small lip on the cassette. That's if you're picky like me though. Happy label making!!!
*****VHS Inserts Instructions*****
Making insert labels for your videotapes is the same as making vertical labels. You can fit an entire season in the case of Brimstone that would be 7 labels on one sheet more for another show with more episodes and depending what speed you recorded your show(s) on. If you have another favorite show you would like labels for, feel free to ask me if I can help you out. I would be happy to help so that you are not wasting an entire sheet.
The only real big difference with insert labels is with the dimensions. If you want them to cover up most of the indented field on the video tape your text box size should at most be 2 inches wide and 3 inches long. If you are not using text boxes, the image itself should be less than the dimensions listed previously. Then cut and check the size with the videotape indenture before removing the adhesive backing and putting the label down You can always trim them down to fit properly.
