Default Label making

Is there a program that people use (and like) to design and print their labels? I am going to be bottling my first beer in a few weeks and would like them to look extra spiffy.

Someone here made the above label maker. You can buy the Pro version for like $5 I think. It's pretty cool. It works for quick and easy labels. Also, look at the labeling thread for more ideas.
Cheers.

Looks like neat software, but what are the label sizes? Gotta know what to put in the printer.

Me right now I just use the free Avery software from their website.

I made a simple starting set of labels for Old Ox Beer using MS Publisher and Avery 5164 labels. I'll do something a bit fancier but was in a bit of a hurry as I'm putting together a case for a Christmas party and need to label things as I can while I still remember what is what.

There's a whole section of HBT for Label Design & Discussion. You'll probably get the best replies there. That said I use a very old version of Photoshop (6.0, I think).
