Default Cigar band adhesion

Hey everyone I have some questions for you all to weigh in on (optional of course )

I am wanting to start labeling my sticks as my collection is growing and I want to keep track of gifts and years and what not. I do not really feel like buying cigar labels online because: 1.) They are too expensive for me and I don't want to waste money on those when I can buy more sticks and 2.) I just want blank bands, so there is no reason not to print them myself using like MS word...unless you all know of a reason.

So enough rambling and on to my questions:
Has anyone used glue to put their labels on their sticks?
-Meaning, instead of scotch tape.

If so, what glue do you use?
If so, has anyone tried a glue stick? (I'm not sure if they make ones that would not impart a smell on the cigars)

Anyway, tape seems really tedious to me, so I was hoping there was a glue that I could use.

Thanks in advance for your input

I print out my labels from Excell, 3/4" wide and use a small piece of 1/2" scotch tape. Not as tedious as I'd imagine a glue stick would be and I'd be afraid of the glue getting on the stick and damaging the wrapper.

I get all the info I need and the cost is 1/26th sheet of paper and a 1/2" of tape.

I print mine out and cut them into labels. I make them big enough to overlap by 1/4" or so and use the kids glue sticks to glue them together. Been doing it for years. Cheap, reliable, no smells, easy on, easy off.

Well timed question Cole. I was looking at doing the same thing now that my collection is growing by leaps and bounds. I look forward to the useful info that gets added here. Thanks.

I just use single finger bags and write on them with a Sharpie nowadays. It's SO much easier than taping bands on, but my hands are retarded. YMMV.

i use a toxic free glue stick. you can get it at any target, walmart etc... the brand is rose-art and it works great.

as far as labels i take standard envelopes and cut strips the short way across.

hope it helps

Exactly what I do when I put labels on cigars.

Default Re: Cigar band adhesion

Thanks for the info guys! The glue stick way seems like it may be a pretty good option. I'm trying about 4-5 different ways out to see what way I prefer that saves the most money but does and adequate job.
Thanks again everyone!

i just cut up printer paper and use small pieces of scotch tape. a bit tedious, but gets the job done. used to just label single bags, took up too much space in the humi, got difficult to pick through when looking for a cigar, and doesnt look as nice (in my opinion)

Default Re: Cigar band adhesion

I buy a lot of locally made cigars from Ybor City that are not banded. I've always thought of labeling them so I could remember their names. Would someone be willing to post pictures of their home made cigar bands? I'm especially interested in those bands created on a computer or using the program Excel. I have Excel on my computer. Tell me they actually have a cigar band template???

There was a group buy a while back that Dom did, they are the best option available IMO.

Use the search function for "cigar label template". Check out the How do you label your cigar? thread. T.G. has a template in that thread.
