Where to obtain diskette labels?

While the subject of *removing* diskette labels has cropped up before
don't think I've seen any discussion on where to obtain *new* ones. I'm
setting up a PCjr system for a friend and would like to prepare a nice
set of software for him, but I have no labels. A while ago, I tried
generic Avery mailing labels that I thought would work, but after a few
months the adhesive dried up and they all fell off. Any suggestions?
Newly-created sources preferred; I tried some old labels in "new old
stock" I have but after 20 years they're dead on arrival; they don't
stick as soon as you pull them off their backing.
On a related note, what's the best adhesive to re-apply labels that have
fallen off? I have some commercial software (games, etc.) where the
label is historically relevant and I'd like to re-attach it.
