    Default Laser projector label templates?

    Does anyone know of a good source for software templates we could use to create & print laser safety labels for our projectors?

    I figure something in PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Visio, etc. would come in handy.

    Thanks!

    Talking Templates

    Just a quick heads-up for everyone looking to make professional looking stickers for their projects...I didn't know this until I recently starting looking, but at Fedex-Kinkos you can have a kick ass stickers printed on a vinyl sticker stock. This stuff comes in all colors and is like a bumper sticker. Its not too expensive will cost $15 a square foot and has a $25 minimum order. Its real easy to send them a .pdf file and pick it up that day. I was looking for this stuff not to make a "Danger Laser Radiation" per se, but a bigger sticker for a nd:yag holography laser control panel I've been working on. I'm definitely going back to them to make some regular laser stickers since they do such a nice job. I always hated Kinkos until recently!

    Something to think about.

    I found a great high-res template label at laserfx.com at the bottom of this page, and just printed on my own ink jet printer on some vinyl sticker paper you can find on your local paper store... This works perfectly!

    Another option is to order the labels from OneStopLaserShop.com. Their prices are *very* reasonable. (In fact, someone here only needed one small label, and since the cost was under a buck they shipped it to him for free!)

    Anyway, if you don't want to buy $25 worth of paper just for a couple labels, they might be a better option.

    At one time I had some labels made for my car restoration. I needed really high quality stickers that would last for years and years when exposed to weather. I ended up creating a design in Adobe Illustrator and sent that to a professional printer that printed it onto really nice sticker material. They also cut them to the specified size/shape. It was a bit expensive for a few so I had 100 made and it cost around $80. The stickers about 3" x 4" so they were a bit expensive. Anyway, that might be a bit overkill but you can get some really nice quality stickers made that way.
