Default Need easy to remove labels

OK, My wife removed a bunch of labels for me and I don't want to put her through that again. Are there any white (not clear) printable static cling type labels??? And where can I get them???

Thanks
doug

I use 1" circle labels and put them on the cap.

For a static cling type label you would need to go to a sign company. I have a friend who is in the sign making business. His cost would be around 1.50-2 bucks per label so no telling what you would be charged if they want to make a profit. I think it was Revvy who posted a label that is just a tag you can print out and hang on the beer bottle. Cheap and easy.

Using milk as an adhesive is not an option?

www.avery.com I think it's product #6490. It's a "removable disk label". About $25 for 375. A friend of mine uses these all the time. A little small for a large bottle, but is fine for 12 oz. bottles. I don't remember the exact size, but their website tells the dimensions.

I think mine is the avery 5408 3/4 inch disk label. They also offer templates. I got about 4000 some disks for $5 at staples. I don't mind cleaning labels off of bottles I bought and drank, what seemed dumb was having to do it for bottles I've already cleaned. I just ordered some blank 6pack carriers that I plan to attach more detailed labels to. These will provide more information matching the beers given.

Look at lables for canning (food canning) made by Ball and other companies. They are made to disolve so you can reuse your glass jars. They make small lables and even some larger ones. I do not know about printing on them but I do not see why you can't. You would have to be good with a computer to set it up.

I've yet to try it, but I've heard nothing but good, other than the fact that an inkjet label might run if it gets too wet.

They are supposed to stick well, until they get very damp, then they are supposed to slide right off.

The other option is to find a water soluble adhesive and just use that. Somebody has to make some.

+1 I use Avery removeable shipping labels. There are good vendors online.
