What is the suggested best product finish for items such as the lip balm labels, balms and other personal care items that may come into contact with water? I'm not sure why the paper finish is offered as a choice on the lip balms. I orders and a little moisture got onto the product from rain and it was ruined. I'm guessing best choice is the Weatherproof - inkject printer.
Also for a honey label would the vinyl or weatherproof be better? Does Online labels also print labels if you send in the artwork?

We sell a variety of products for labeling lip balm. Assuming you plan to use an inkjet printer, I would recommend our weatherproof products for inkjet printing. I think our weatherproof matte inkjet label material is going to the best option that I would recommend for this purpose. Here is a link to our label sizes that are recommended for use on lip balm containers.

I recommend that you try a few sample sheets to confirm that you like the material and feel comfortable it will work for your purposes.

Many of our customers will also purchase some of the clear gloss labels for laser printing (they won't print on the labels - they just use them to laminate the labels) to use as an overlaminate on the lip balm labels. This helps to make the labels much more durable and it also adds an extra layer of protection.

Here is some additional content you will find on our site related to labeling lip balm containers.

In regards to labels for you honey jars,- would you be printing with a laser printer or an inkjet printer? Assuming you are using an inkjet printer, I would recommend the weatherproof matte inkjet label material for that item too. You may also want to consider the white gloss material for inkjet printing (non-weatherproof). We are happy to send you samples for testing of these materials too.

Also - We do offer printing services for our products. You can learn more and get pricing at the link below.

I hope this information is helpful. We happy to answer any additional questions that you may have in regards to our products.
