So the label costs about 7˘ and the shrink about 20˘ or roughly 27˘ / label... Pretty cheap for most things "boats"....
We pay 5.5 cents per label, including the laminating overwrap. However I wasn't actually thinking of the material cost, I was thinking of the labor cost.

The most expensive words in business might be "It only takes a minute to do!"
