Default Anyone use clear labels?

I'll be bottling 10 gallons of homebrew for a friend's wedding. I'll be using the 4"x3 1/3" labels for the bottle and probably 3/4" or 1" for the caps. I can't decide if I should go with the clear or white labels. Does anyone have some pics of clear labels they can share? I think the clear would definitely be better for the caps if the ink would show. Thanks!

I tried some 4"x3" clear labels and they looked horrible, air bubbles showed badly and it was hard to see the printing. I'd stick with white.

In order for printing to show on a brown bottle you'd really need to silkscreen...printer ink is too transparent. It would probably work well on the silver o2 absorbing caps.
