I thought I would get in a reply to Denis’ letter in the latest edition of our Newsletter.
Denis is quite correct. The size of labels is important, and I too wonder why sellers do not bother to include in their listings.
Every so often I just send a ‘What size is this label please?’ note to every seller without sizes. I also have a rule not to give a 5 star rating for description if there is not an indication of size.
It is the reason for this theme on our blog.
The label on the left is relatively common and would sell for less than £5 on eBay. The one on the right does not come up very often and I guess, would command a much higher price.
