There is a pretty good program out there called MaxiSigns that can design
ANSI compliant customizable labels for you. I bought it awhile ago but I
don't remember the costs as exorbitant (couple hundred $), payback in time
would be quick.
They also sell special printing media and machines (don't know your budget
but in my mine it was prohibitive). With a good printer and laminate my
signs come out very professional looking and have held up well.

I hope this helps.

[SAFETY] Z535 Pictographs
I've got a new and, for a change, a fun project at hand I could use a
little help with. I've been tasked with redesigning all out product
hang-tags and hazard labels to be compliant with ANSI Z535. I just
ordered the standard and should have it soon.
While I wait I would like to start building a library of pictographs
that follow the ANSI and ISO standards for hazard identification. Does
anyone know of a source for these images? I already suspect I will have
to draw the vast majority, since they are supposed to be hazard
specific. What I'm looking for is really more of set of benchmarks as
to how the hazard should be identified and displayed graphically. I've
done the preliminary Google search with some positive results, but
nothing comprehensive comes up.
