I decided to create a document of all the current Reaper Paint numbers and colors so I could print my own and not bug Reaper for them.  This is everything from the current store list and the upcoming

Spent all afternoon printing labels and putting them on bottles.  Found three bottles with original labels so faded I have no idea what they are.  Gonna be some trial and error going on.   The whole

Let me just say this.   Thank you.

A .csv with the contents would be nice, for those who wants to use other size labels.

(I have an OpenOffice spreadsheet with my paints, but as that is just a small collection of MSP, AP and Vallejo, it's not much use for anyone else)

 

Actually, thinking about it, everyone should really keep such a file of their collection of paints. It helps to avoid duplicates... 

It also helps to identify paints that has lost their label by process of elimination.

If part of a triad, I think having that on the label would be great!  Perhaps something as simple as the other two SKUs of the triad in smaller text at the bottom?

 

Other than that this looks great and quite useful!

Would be easier for just the triad name probably. Overall thanks for sharing this with the community though

Either way works for me.  The numbers are always sequential of course.

I can convert the XLSX to a CSV easy enough..

The labels are great. I will be relabeling this weekend! Did you notice that ReaperBryan's latest color swatches had 4 new HD colors? I didn't have them on my spreadsheets so I think they might be new: 29851 Tropical Aqua, 29852 Dwarven Flesh, 29853 Rosy Pink, and 29854 Arctic Grey.

In addition to overcoming the fading that is common on my Reaper paint labels, these labels have two other advantages.

 

First, the print is larger than that of the paint color on the original label and the contrast is greater.  So it is easier to read.

 

Second, some of my old labels were beginning to peel off, with the end of the label lifting off the paint container.  But, when you attach the new labels with the print directly over the color printed on the original label, the new label tacks the old one down.

 

Did I say thank you?
