Here is something I created for my T-Loc Systainer labels. I got some of the PVC plastic ID cards, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005H5W0YM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1, which slide perfectly into the slots on the Systainer.  I bought Avery Weatherproof labels, (15513).  The label is the correct height for the ID cards, but needs to be trimmed for the correct length.  I created a PDF to create the labels, allowing you to enter your text, an image for the contents and an image for the brand. 

Attached you will find an example of a full sheet of labels, ready for printing and trimming.

And also a copy of the blank form, ready to insert your items.

I just downloaded my tool images and cropped them to where they look good in my PDF.  You can change the image over-and-over until you get it right, then send it to the printer.

I use a color laser and so far, my labels have held up nicely.

Is there a label template for the Mini Systainers? I haven't seen one, but I probably missed it.

These labels are great, thanks for providing them,  I could use a few more I have not seen here, if it is not too much trouble.  With everything being monetized I am surprise you have not set up a month subscription for labels.

Hey. Very cool labels and very pro.

I dont mind sending you a few bucks for the vector file so i can add some of my own tools that are non festool but in systainer boxes.  Im assuming you used illustrator or photo shop?  I would love to use your labels. But also need to customize.  I will post my versions also for others to take advantage of... lmk. Thanks

Does photoshop do vectored graphics? I thought it just "rasterized" everything.

Hi all,

First post here.

Started to make my labels and get organized with Systainers, and have become obsessed.

Here is my first shot; for all my Leigh Dovetail jig accessories. I've also gone as far as to spray paint the T-Loc latch for the Leigh color. It would bother me to have a drawer full of Blue T-Loc latches, and paint has held up.
For Leigh i used Rustoleum Rich Jade (http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalog/consumer-brands/stops-rust/protective-enamel-spray?ls=312816&lc=Rich%20Jade)

Sanded T-Loc with 240 lightly, 2 light coats of Rustoleum primer, 3 light coats of Rich Jade, 2 light coats of Satin clear coat.

Also made a label for my Kreg K4 Master set.

Thanks for the label help!

Hey Holmz (and everyone),

Got those labels you wanted. Not sure what you meant by "Prep" though?

Also some Veritas ones i have for woodworking hand tools, drywall anchors, fastners, etc.

Thanks!

OK These are really starting to seem slick now.
