I am making Vario PDF label templates and posting them on Stamp Smarter. These are interactive PDF forms which allow you to modify the label content and then print them yourself. I designed them with wide, black borders which allow you quickly cut the labels apart without impacting the square white label area. (If you use black Vario pages there is no need to trim them ultra-carefully to have them look clean and professional.)

The first template is 4 lines, 1" wide by 0.8" high and can be downloaded here

If anyone has any requests for a different size and/or configuration please let me in this thread and I will develop and add so that others can use them. Additionally, if anyone has any input or feedback for improvements please let me know.

Don - Am I right in thinking these are actually designed for black stock-pages in general, rather than just one of the Lighthouse range of products?

Hi GeoffHa,
Yes, you are correct. I did not mean to endorse any one particular manufacturer.

This should be useful to some. Don someone was created labels with reverse print so entire background was black with white characters.

I'll be adding 'title blocks' and 'white font on black' labels today. Here are examples with how these look...

Hi Al,
I will post them in a while, I am adding code so that users can show/hide each row of labels. As I worked with them myself, I found that I sometimes only wanted to print a few labels, not a full sheet of them. I felt it was a waste of ink/toner to print this big page of black labels when I only really wanted a few.

Thanks Don, what a great addition now I have to figure out which style I'm going to use.

Thanks for what you do on your site and here at the forum!

Very nice indeed. What would be even more universally useful, however, beyond Vario page labels, would be identifying labels for the spines of album binders. Or is that provided for in some label-making program already? I'm not trying to be unappreciative of what you've done (!), but just thinking more broadly about what the broadest number of collectors would find useful. Your page heading labels, for example, are certainly not limited to being used on Vario pages, but would be useful for all blank page albums.

Don on what kind of paper or label are you printing? Are yours adhesive and what type of printer do you use?

Hi,
I use a color laser printer and plain paper.

I have always simply stashed US cut squares away over the years. Recently I decide to revisit them and give them some organization. I thought the best approach would be to use Vario pages as I came up to speed and help me decide how best to disposition them; here are two example pages.
