Jones Soda With Personalized Labels

Jones Soda will personalize bottles of their fabulous soda for you, but the only problem is it's almost thirty dollars for twelve, a pretty pricey wedding favor. Instead purchase cases of their soda at less than half that price and make your own labels. Choose your favorite soda or a combination of flavors so guests have an option. Be sure to ask for discounts if you are buying this in bulk. Most stores will offer you a discount for large bulk purchases. If the first place you try won't do it, just keep trying. Even a 10% discount when you're planning a wedding adds up in a hurry.
