I just ordered these from a company that makes poker chip labels. For 312 labels ( I used the resources images provided in the BGG files ) it cost $13.50 (that includes the shipping). They are stick and peel, but are at 15/16" so you will need to cut them or use a 1/2" punch.
Just attach the file you want to your email.

The email for this guy (so you dont have to hunt him down via ebay) is Sales@slamdunkimports.com
Save some of us non-DIY'ers some time.

Are the labels paper or plastic? Are they protected with any sort of clear coat?

Not yet, but you can go to ebay and search for custom poker chip labels, and you can see what they will look like.

I'm not really understanding the benefit of this. I got a sheet of 50 pages of full page Avery labels for $10 and printed out the resource stickers on that. Yeah, I have to cut them out individually still, but that is what takes the longest.

How is your poker chip labels an improvement over this?
Thanks.

Well, If I were to guess, I would say the quality of the stickers, how long they will last, the fact you don't have to cut them out yourself...


For 3 dollars more then your labels, I would say it's worth it.

In fact, with gas prices now, it is probrably CHEAPER, because you can get eh poker stickers online, and not have to drive to the store

And with the avery labels, you'll use a few of the sheets, but certainly not all 50 sheets, so you'll have many left over for other projects. I don't know about quality, but the clear avery labels I picked up are awesome. I've been delighted with them for my micropul set.

Believe it's cheaper and relatively easy to take the images here and use the peel and stick stuff you can get for garage sales at any office supply store. They will have the correct size stickers (they make all different sizes) and you can put them in your printer after you take a few practice runs to make sure it lines up correctly.

I was thinking of doing that for Agricola but I came up with a better solution (IMO).

Why not just buy a copy of the latest edition of Spielbox magazine? There's a sheet of self-adhesive labels included as a free gift.

I liked the user added images for resources. At this time my printer is out of commission and I dont have Avery paper. So for 13 bucks, and no work, I thought I would throw it out here for everyone. And yes, the quality is better, I have had my poker chips labeled for 6 years now with very little wear, and they are handled alot.

Spielbox only has family stickers though, right? because if it also has stickers for resources, I'm in.

I have a question on lineup. My original file wasn't designed for that size so was wondering how they line up the stickers? If they are on full sheet stickers then you can punch them out. But if its a sheet of larger stickers then you'll have some cross label edges.

Well, I guess you're not in 'cause Spielbox offers stickers just for the family discs and not for the resources.

Sounds like I'll be using ScottE's file, avery clear labels and a 1/2" punch. Punch was ordered yesterday, game should arrive today according to FedEx and I've got labels and a printer at home.

Is there an easy way to get these stickers off the paper once they're punched? I'm having a hell of a time doing it... seems to be stuck... and when I do manage to get them off it takes like 2 minutes per piece...

Before punching pre-pull off 95% of the backing, then roll it back on. After punching the sticker backing comes off much easier.

peel off the backing and reapply before punching


Great idea! We also used a large pin to separate the backing from the print. Easy to poke it in at the edge between backing paper and then pivot around.

Just finished attaching all my resource stickers on both sides, and farmerstoo. I used the files here because they were great. I didnt have a 1/2" punch, so I had to cut them all by hand. Luckily there was a 1/2" circle on all the lebels I could follow. I now need to go over them with some varnish. They make the game look that much better. I like the customized fences that are posted here too, anyone know where to get those?

Although I now need to find these clear sticker sheets that others are using. Printing out just a line of white pickets on a transparent sticker that attaches to each fence piece would look nicer IMHO.

[EDIT:]
Clear sticker paper for inkjets is Avery product 4383.

Cool, thanks!

Has any other boardgame ever inspired so much Do-it yourself customization?

How can you print something out in white?
