Hey thanks for the great labels guys.

I found the free Linux program Inkscape does a great job importing the pdfs and images here, and it has very useful tools for laying out the images on a page of labels.

Since I normally store my Systainers in edgewise to save linear shelf space the side labels are very helpful.

 

Can you post pics of your storage?
Sold my tools but kept a few Fes-tools...just in case.

Uhh that would be very embarrassing to me. [embarassed]

All it is are wire shelves with systainers stacked on them.

Hi,
I would also like to show you few of my labels. I was making them in CorelDraw and after printing I was laminating them, they are harder, so they are better holding in the
label holder and of course they are more resistant to dirt and humidity.

This is great!!! Thanks for making these labels and saving me a ton of time.

Could you make one for the Domino Tenon Assortment (498899)?
here is a link to detail page and a photo http://www.festoolusa.com/power-tool-accessories/joiners/tenon-assortments/domino-tenon-assortment-498899

I have a Systainer with just the various MFT style clamps as well if you are feeling super generous with your time :-)

Thanks again!

Just want to say thanks to Mike for making all the labels.  I put them on all of the on my systainers.  Then of course I need labels for my mini systainers so I found this app called iDraw.  Wasn't to hard to figure out and soon I had labels for the minis.  I attached one of them that I made for a wera ratchet set.

Seth,

Thank you.

The pdf files should be much more useful to me than PC-only software.

I remember thinking when I first had a few Systainers on a SYS-Cart, "From stone age to Star Trek in minutes".

If you download and install Adobe Reader XI you will be able to import image files of the type Jpeg, Png, Bmp, and Gif. So you can use your cell phone camera to take an image of your stuff and inset it into the label.

Reader XI has added the ability  to import an image file into a PDf form.  This is not possible with older versions of Reader.

Resurrecting an old thread...thanks to @mike68au for his work on these labels.  I wasn't feeling great today, so rather then spending time in the shop I worked on additional labels I had a need for.

True Position Drill Guide


   

I'm attaching the PDF's here as well as making the PDF, Photoshop, and source images available from my Dropbox.  I want to stress I'm not a graphic artist - some are pretty good, some are eh, but you get what you pay for...

Nice labels indeed.
But I don't think some of them can have two brandnames on it.
Like the Fein MM with the Festool logo beneath it.
It's Fein or Festool but not both.
Other labels don't have the Festool logo beneath.
Here's my Fein version also.

Thanks very much - these are great and I can use quite a few of them. It never occurred to me to put a nicer label on the Festool tool systainers but the original labels are kind of difficult to identify from a distance with older eyes  [embarassed].

I'm using the link above to the UK website for their PDF's. Can somebody tell me how to change the font size, or if it's even possible?

I'm on a Mac but downloaded the acrobat reader. I can change out the picture etc. but the default font is pretty small.

Thanks!

@jdm5 - thanks for sharing these.  They are excellent.  I've used many of them.

Do you have labels for any of the drills?  The CXS or T15 would both be welcome!

Also the 1010 Router!

@neilc here you go (now that I have the templates setup they are pretty quick).  I'm also keeping all of them in my Dropbox folder (much easier).  If anyone is aware of a Festool central file site let me know, happy to centralize them somewhere else.

Gimp can open the Photoshop files I've generated, and I've stored them all in my Dropbox:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nl1rdr00qn55zhp/AADrezuRUzpBKzmH55IrOESSa?dl=0

I've not used Gimp but from what I read you should be able to modify them that way.

@jdm5 - Thanks, you got most of the what I can use.
(Do you happen to have a DEROS one too?)

@mike68au - Thanks M8

I have some DIY ones out of card stock with marker on them, but half the time they pop out.
Is there any special lamination deal? Or just bring them in and the lamination is standard?
Or do I need to say some specific "???" lamination (like heavy duty, or 10#)?
