    Hello folks..

    We are proud to begin offering sample labels!

    Now available in your choice of background color - white or black! See post #2 for images.

    Each set contains 20 labels:

    • 4 x glossy vinyl, unlaminated
    • 4 x matte vinyl, unlaminated
    • 4 x glossy vinyl, smooth laminate
    • 4 x glossy vinyl, textured laminate (similar to cross-hatching)
    • 4 x glossy vinyl, matte laminate (looks textured, feels smooth)

    Cost including postage is USD $5 (US/Canada) or USD $6 (international). Additional sets can be included for USD $3 each, no additional postage cost.

    Please note that "one set" means 20 labels of one background color. If you would like to order a set of black and a set of white, the cost is $8 (US/Canada) or $9 (international).

    Special offer: Order 200 or more labels (100 chips' worth) within 30 days of ordering your sample set, and get $5 off!


    Please note: All sample labels are 7/8" (22.2 mm) but of course your custom labels can be made any size you want. I am happy to help determine the right size for your chips. If you would like "custom samples" please contact us at info@gearlabels.com or via PM.


    How to order:

    1. Send payment via Paypal to sales@gearlabels.com.
    2. Be sure to include your FULL NAME, your complete MAILING ADDRESS, and your name on ChipTalk.
    3. Also indicate whether you would prefer WHITE or BLACK samples.


    Thank you!

    Payment sent. Great idea to offer these samples - I'm definitely interested to check out the different styles of labels prior to ordering.

    Hi Gear, is there a minimum size you can do? This may sound strange, but I've been looking for some labels for my wife's nail polish business.

    Hmm, interesting question... I'm pretty sure the minimum size would be very small, on the order of a couple of millimetres? Probably smaller than any useful label would be :)

    What size do you need? Send a PM or email if you like.

    Added black sample set - see post #2 for thumbnails.

    Actually I guess they're not really "thumbnails" since the pics are way bigger than the actual labels IRL :)

    Order and money sent for white label samples.

    I've got something in mind but will ping you for details after I have samples in hand.

    Thanks for the offer. Looking forward to seeing these in person.

    Hey, thanks for that! I was just wondering today whether anyone's had arrived yet.

    I'm sad - it turns out the big silver gears on the "business card" sticker are super-susceptible to smearing. Apparently I shouldn't print big metallic silver areas without laminating them. (Sure glad I mailed everyone a business card that highlights how NOT to do it.)

    The silver on the business sticker did not smear a single bit for me. (perhaps my hand shook while taking the photo)

    I definitely prefer the glossy vinyl matte laminate over all others.

    Just got a selection from gear for a project that's in the works. I must say, the labels are perfect and were packed safely. I would never hesitate to use gear's services in the future. Well Done Sir! I offer my highest recommendation!!!
