Default Question: printed labels for vacuum bagged ribs?

We are thinking of passing out (fully cooked) vacuum bagged ribs as Christmas presents for family & friends this year. I'm thinking of some kind of label with handling & reheating instructions that I can print on my inkjet. Anybody have any experience or ideas you want to share?

I've just always used Sharpies to write on mine. I'm not sure if a label would stick very well or not.

You could write the instructions up on a note card or small piece of paper then staple it to the bag above the seal point.

You could probably get a small run of peel and stick labels done at a local printer using waterproof ink for cheap. I would think the inkjet labels wouldn't last long in a humid environment. Excellent idea, btw.

Maybe something like this would work http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Pro...bels_15516.htm

And since your fellow Brethren are obviously friends (and some like family), should I be expecting 1 or 2 racks in the mail?

I use these weather resistant labels and they work great. Just put them on the bag, then seal, then throw in the freezer. They work great.

Thanks guys, I can make these work. I'm more worried about something that sticks to the bag good. If I do my job and the ribs are worth a damn they should not be around long

are you sure you can use them on an inkjet or do you have a laser?

according to the website someone tried using it on a inkjet and it made a huge mess

Thanks, I saw that comment too. I have access to a laser at my BIL's veterinary office. Since he is probably getting a couple racks of ribs, I'm sure he will let me print some labels there

We do this every year but never used labels, we just write on the bag with a sharpie. Labels sound good, maybe we'll try that this year.
