You may also wish to note that John Dudman, former PBKA member and Secretary, provides the labels for Scolton honey and also supplies a number of individual PBKA members. He can supply quantities from a few as ten labels up to 1000. Standard designs are available or if you have a favourite photograph or drawing you would like to use on a label he can work with you to produce your own unique design. There are no set up costs, you pay just for the labels and delivery. He will make sure that your label meets current legal requirements and can provide advice on lot numbering and best before dates. Bespoke tamper evident labels are also available and labels can be provided for any product e.g. beeswax polish. His competitively priced labels are supplied on A4 sheets, designed using desk top publishing software and printed on a high quality laser printer to give an easy to handle, smudge free finish.
