We started out using basic labels you can get from most anywhere, then we just print and stick. We have tried out the neck labels. But they do need to be the type that are curved to line up properly. However, if you are going to be consuming the beers alot by yourself, there isn't alot of need for full labels. But we still needed to identify the different types. At the moment, we have 4 or 5 different beer types in storage.
We found that for personal use and identification purposes, we got the 3/4" dia. all-purpose circular labels. Once you line them up properly on the printer, its a fairly simple process (make sure you have a template once you line it up and keep that as reference). We added a simple graphic to identify the type, like an apple for the apple cider. We included the name and the ABV. Then you just stick them on the cap. So you can identify the beer, but not waste alot of money on labels if you are just consuming them yourself.
