Default best way to create label ?

So we have a name, 3 nice beers so far with a fourth on the way. We thought we would class it up with labels I have a pretty concrete idea of what it will look like, but what is the best way to make that a reality? i.e. what programs/ label sights etc. are best.

Best is what ever you are most confident with and I it also depends how long you have.

The best way IMO is to get Bilpa do do a set for you.

You can download GIMP, it's something like PhotoShop. It takes a little bit to learn, but it's worth it. You can also do some simple stuff in either PowerPoint or Word.

Print them on a high quality paper - a bunch will fit on a single sheet, cut them, spray them with hair spray and adhere them to the bottle with a glue stick.

Inkscape is pretty good. Vector-based, free, decently powerful.

I have to add another vote for MS Publisher. It makes it very easy!
