Default 1st time label results....

So I looked around awhile on the forum on ways, tips, tricks, etc on doing bottle labels. And I wound up doing the following....I printed my labels on regular copy paper on a color laser printer, I then cut each label with a paper cutter, then I applied my adhesive, that being a standard children's elmer's glue stick. I then applied them to my bottles. I let them set a couple week since they had to anyways before sampling.
I have put the bottles in the refrigerator, a cooler full of ice/water, and the label hold up really well for only having a couple bucks and an hour of my time in 50+ labels.

Enjoy....

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
