Does anyone know of any sites that offer printable cigar box art or labels?  I have 2 plain boxes and am looking for ideas.   Kind of thinking of something vintage looking that I could glue on the top  and then verathane over it.

Here's what seems to be a quick, easy and successful method:

Thanks,  I will check into that.  I have been woodburning on my dulcimers  but wanted to try something different on the cigar boxes.

Hi Peggy, here is what I have tried.

I copied the images from the internet, I printed some on special photocopy "sticker" making sheets, and some on ordinary paper. The same image is shown in the first photo. One is black and white, as original, on the Sticker clear material, the other is on paper and coloured in by my wife. The other photo shows a print on paper and torn to look worn, it was also B&W and was coloured with watercolour pencils.

These are just experiments, you could print on textured/coloured paper for different effects.

Also search "transferring photos to wood".

Good luck Taff

Google “printable cigar box art” and click on “images”.

Maybe one of our builders who is proficient in the how to's, etc., will chime in.
