Need A Label

I bought Larry's rub recipes and changed them up to make my own recipe. I think they are good and want to market them. The rubs are not Larry's recipe, but had some influence on the mix of them. I have a friend that is in the spice business that will mix it for me. (just to keep it legal and all that jazz.) Thinking of a 12oz container. Can anyone recommend some one to make a label for me? I know I'm not going to make a million dollars on the deal with all the rubs out there now. But it keeps me out of the bar, and it's just plain ole fun.

Re: Need A Label

How original! But if it makes you feel good, go for it! Surprised someone didn't steal the recipes off your hard drive yet......

Re: Need A Label

How'd you tweak something that doesn't need tweaking? Send me sample and recipe ASAP.

Re: Need A Label

Just because you mix it backwards, doesnt make it your own! For the label, I use these folks: http://www.cgplabels.com/ they are good to work with.

Re: Need A Label

Larry, your secret is safe with me. I would never sell, or give your recipes to any one! The recipes I have are NOT COPY CAT recipes from Larry. They are my own, and Val's. Sure Larry had a great product. will I steal it? Hell no! Sure I make it for my own personal consumption. But would never mass produce it for profit. Larry is a hell of a honest man, and I thank him for putting it out there. Rip Larry off? I don't think so.

Re: Need A Label

Shouldn't the label have a hawg instead of a dawg? Just trying to cover all the bases here. This place says they can make you some labels. When I tole the lady where you was at she started talking about ropes. Think maybe she has been watching too many Pace Picante Sauce commercials on TV.

Yeah, just a matter of lies, I mean time until it happens......

Chris, if you pursue this you'll need GPC codes, Nutritional analysis done and the code for the labels. You should also become an LLC or a Corp to cover your ass in the case some one sues you, which I'm sure the way things happen to you they will. You will also need liability insurance, minimum of $1M. You will also need an FDA approved storage facility, you can't store retail food items in your home. This is all true for Va, not sure what the reg's are in NY.

If you want I will sell you the template for the Wolfe Rub labels (6 in all), only thing you would have to get a graphic artist to do is change the name and pic. The labels include a unique UPC for each and the Nutritional Information for each. They're print ready and [url="http://www.frontierlabels.com"]www.frontierlabels.com[/url] has all of the information already in their database. You could call and talk to Andrew, he could make the changes and have the labels to you by next week.

Re: Need A Label

Thanks Larry. We are going threw Cornell University to get all the proper jazz in place. It should be interesting to say the least.

Yea, I did! It sure as hell is not easy! Every damn time I fire up the WSM (the wife's) or the kettle, I automatically go to the beer fridge. Not a good thing. Been drinking hard for 30 years, Time to leave it alone.

Oh man. We got a quitter on our hands?


Just kiddin' Pigs. I know its a pain in the ass. Everytime you/me do anything usually a beer is involved. The smell of food alone brings to mind a cold beer everytime. Good luck with that. That's a hard one to kick.
