So i was all set for making these incredible labels after being so inspired by the work people here have done... and then i started removing labels to save bottles for bottling.
Oh h*** no... i've learned that i absolutely, 100% LOATH cleaning bottles.
So i compromised.
My labels are kind of a throwback to Tax Stamps on bottles. Easy to design, easy to print and very easy to get off the bottles. I use three full sheet label stickers to duplicate and print... then cut them all quickly with my wifes hobby straight-line paper cutter board thingy. After capping, i simply wrap them across the top of the cap and down the sides of the neck.
Hope you guys like 'em.
My first brew and only Mr. Beer kit was
My second brew was a partial mash "House Brown Ale" called "Brown House Ale" yeah it was late and had to pick a name.
Third was a modified Stella clone inspired by a friend of mine named Todd... hence "Fleet Street Ale" for Sweeney Todd.
And tomorrow i'll be brewing Cygnus, my first all-grain beer - guiness inspired.
Really cool art, those would make cool handles for taps too.
Thanks! Yeah i have alot of plans, taps included... first step is to finish out my keggle conversions so i can do some REAL brewing. At the moment i'm stuck with 2 gal batches but that will change soon mwahahahahaha.

I'll probably be doing bigger labels for bottles i give away but these are just too easy to remove to do it all the time... for me anyway. Much respect to the guys and gals that fully label all their bottles.
Steal away sKafifer. I guess i stole it from the gov'ment so i can't really call rights
Edit: Figured id throw the tools and stock up here.
