The order is for 250 to 325, 6oz jars of my honey, for a wedding.  My question is what should I put on the label for the jars.  should I put Congratulations to the couple's (name) from Chicago's Sweet Stuff or just leave Chicago's Sweet Stuff of it. 

Thanks in advance Norm

I thought honey for a wedding will be labeled for the bride and groom.

Congrats. You might want to ask them. Wedding planners are twitchy folks sometimes.

More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

That's going to be on a card attached to the Jar.

I don't know about Illinois, but NC law requires

1..The words "pure honey"
2.. Your contact info
3.. The net weight

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Food laws are a bit different, and Chicago food laws get even tighter. Mofo's require a whole separate certification for them since state safe-serve isn't good enough, lol. Tread carefully, you might want to contact the Chicago honey co-op to see how they handle it.

Anywho, you should totally put your name on the tags, and the words raw honey. People might not get what the little jars are if they aren't marked honey. And you should let people know who you are so if they want more of your sweet stuff, they know where to find you.

Actually Beesneeds, I have read the laws and this is one of those gray areas.  As far as the Raw Honey goes, that must appear on the Label, no if ands, or buts about it.  My question is, should I put my company on the label.  The only reason I call it a company, is because I had to get a business lic. from the state and city.

Ah, sorry if I misunderstood and babbled about food law then Smiley

But yeah, you should absolutely put your name on there!
