Default Does anybody use vinyl stickers as beer labels?

I'm brand to this hobby and I was thinking of putting the name of my "brewery" on my bottles. It seems most of you guys use paper label. I was just going to have some cheap vinyl stickers made and slap them on. I thought these could be semi waterproof so they might stay on if I just have to clean the inside of the bottle. Would this work? Or do I have to use a new label with every batch?

I was planning on writing the specific type of beer on the cap itself.

i picked up label sheets from ahs & printed mine. they've worked really well so far. i'd think the initial cost of the vinyl stickers would be more substantial than just printing on paper.

I just picked up a stack of sheets from LabelsByTheSheet. Haven't tried them yet, but they look pretty good.

I just posted on this but yes check out http://www.stickerguy.com/ and get the $20 stickers they never wear out.

I'm a graphic designer and use tons of printers - these things are solid

Thanks everybody for your input!
Shoreman, you read my mind! I was going to have my buddy who's a graphic designer come up with a logo for me and then have sticker guy do the stickers. I used him a while ago to do some punk rock stuff for me.

Have you used the stickers for beer bottles?

I just started offering short run vinyl label printing and custom die cutting. It works great on glass bottles - completely waterproof. Reusable too.

I have a limited amount of designs at the moment but I'm brewing hard to add more. :-)
