I like the 22s but you gotta buy em ($10 for 12 at my LHBS). The 12s are free when you drink a beer and get the labels off. I usually just put 2 cases into a plastic bin with sanitizer water and let it sit there for several days, and when I get around to it the labels are falling off.
I use the Avery 5164 (Staples brand) sheets to print beer labels if I'm gifting, and usually I give the growlers. Unless its my dad, I'll give him a six pack of 12s. Growlers make a nice presentation as a gift but they never come back so I'm using more and more 12s as time goes by.
I'll probably unload the Grolsch bottles. If anybody in the RI/MA area wants them for brewing, send me a message. I have a full green bin of them and you can come get em free any time.
