Default How to make labels?

I am just starting to put my beer into 12 oz bottles and wanted to know if I can just use label paper, and maybe fit 5-6 labels on a sheet to print it out. Then cut it out and adhere to bottles. Thanks for any advice.

Avery label #5164 works well for me. 6 to a sheet.

Print on regular paper, cut out (using your wife's Creative Memories crap), afix with glue stick.

Pros..no limits on paper color, size, design, low cost, peals right off, etc.
Cons...regular paper and ink jet bleeds like a stuck pig when wet or with lots o condensate.

I draft up a label for every batch but hardly label...just those I bring out of the house, or to identify a keg, or to identify what's on tap in the garage fridge (glue stick it to the door).

My $0.02.

Go to the Avery website and they have a program that is free and works GREAT! Use it all the time I need something labled.

Here is the link:

I just got this new program and it look really cool. Called Logo Design Studio. Was pretty cheap at office max and it's kinda nifty

If you have MS Publisher, it has most of the Avery labels listed. It gives you an on-screen template you can design on, then prints out the sheet of labels. Works great.

MS Word also has the built-in ability to use Avery labels. You pick your label from the Tools/Letters and Mailings/Envelopes and Labels menu, then select the Labels tab. If you click on the picture of the label in the right-hand corner, it allows you to pick which Avery label you want to use.

That's exactly what I do too. But, after printing, I spray the sheets with a clear fixative to "waterproof" them. Right now I'm using a Krylon clear spray. Just a light misting, & the labels don't run. Cheap hairspray (Aquanet) would probably work just as well.
