labels printed at Fed Ex and stuck to bottles with glue stick...comes right off in water and the labels won't run if slightly moist.

I see that as a disadvantage. I was hoping they would be able to handle it. I live in a small apartment and don't have room for a second fridge, so when I have parties a cooler of ice is how I keep large amounts of beer cold. I'd like my guests to be able to pull the beers out without them looking like garbage.

I tried putting the milk on the label, and I found it to be a pain in the a$$.

Now i wet a paper towel with milk, and rub it on the bottle, then quickly slap the label onto the wetted surface, smooth it out from the center to the edges, and you're done.

all you need is to dampen the surface and the label will stick.

Default Got Milk?

I've found that milk works best. It's fast and effective. I've used it for labels printed on basic copy paper, inkjet printer, with little to no bleeding; you just need to let the copy dry well enough before milking.

I just poor some milk in a dish, quickly soak the entire label, apply and dry.

I've done the Kinkos thing twice now and applied with milk. Works great! However, I noticed that the 2nd batch of labels I did at Kinkos tended to curl up when I milked them. I suspect the person at Kinkos used different weight paper the 2nd time. Does anyone know the weight of the standard paper they use?

you gotta just try this people it works amazing!!!! the paper sticks literally like glue, the paper tears its so stuck to the bottle! But a little warm water to soften it all up and it runs right off. It's great.

This sounds interesting and I wouldn't mind trying it for my next batch. Does anyone have the specs on the paper they use? The nearest Kinkos is a half hour drive each way, but there is a UPS store in my town.
