If you go to E-Bay and type "Freezer labels" into the search bar, you will find a selection of them. They look really reasonable. I buy a lot of little things like that on E-Bay.
dougmays: I've been thinking along the same lines. Lately I have been toying with the idea of getting a stamp made with my logo on it (as permanent marker seems to hold up well to fridge/freezer conditions) and stamping the bags--thoughts?
Sharpie for me too.
I usually write on the body of the bag before I fill it. If you try to write on the body after you have cold meat in the bag the outside of the bag starts to condense moisture and the sharpie does not want to write. I like to use the main body as I have more room and can write nice nice and big. I only use my bags once but the end would work better for those who try to get more than one use out of them.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a good company to get sticker labels from that adhere to plastics like this? i ordered labels for my jerky and i stick them onto the bags and then seal them...over a day or 2 the stickers start to peel off. This is certainly not a problem with Lisa's bags, i had a the same issue with vacuum sealer bags...it's the type of sticker label i'm using.
so curious if anyone had found a solution that works?
If ya get a stamp you will still have to write on the thing to show whats in the package....
Now all ya need is a laser printer and the time to set it all up and print labels...
I kinda like the easy way...put the stuff in the bag ..weigh it...seal it..introduce it to mr sharpie and into the freezer..
Have a great day!!

I'm glad that I can supply you with bags and cat toys!
I had a pallet of bags delivered yesterday (about 50 large shipping boxes) and my two cats were going crazy playing with them. I don't know what it is with cats and cardboard boxes....
Our Pro 140 is a really good home machine and puts two heat strips with every seal. If you use rolls a lot, the Pro 260 has roll storage and a cutter. I'm also selling a lot of the Pro 305, but that's a pretty heavy-duty model that may be too much for occassional use. I'll put all the links here so you can see them.
If you have any questions, just ask.
VacMaster doesn't make a mason jar attachment, but I have many customers who use our machines with the FoodSaver attachment. The machines all come with the hose attachment.
