I am a soapmaker and wanted to create some new labels. I am specifically having problems with a lip balm label. The label size is 1.5x1 inch. Do you have any suggestions as how to create this? Is it possible? I currently make them in word, but wanted to use a new label I created in photoshop. In word I have them seperated out so I can get about 30 labels out of one sheet of paper. I use the same process for lotion labels, soap labels, etc. I have the label in a 12x12 to start and want to make it small, perferably on one sheet of paper. I am fairly new to photoshop, but was hoping this was possible. I wasn't sure if there was a scrap girls label tool that might also do this.

You can try starting with a blank document in the size you want for the label - 1.5 x 1 inch. Design your label just as you want it, and save it. Save it first as a PSD (so you can always go back to edit layers), then save it as a PNG.
Next, open up a 8.5 x 11 inch document in Photoshop, and then drag your label PNGs up and arrange them on the page in rows/columns to fit where the labels should be printed, until your sheet is full. Then just print that page.
If the paper you are printing has pre-cut label spaces, you can probably adjust the gridlines/rulers within the software to mark off the perforation lines.
