What program have you been using to make your labels?

I use gimp to create / arrange the images and stuff, but paintbrush or any editor would work depending on how complex you want to be. I use gimp because of the layers but I am far from proficient. I paste the finished image into MS Word for printing. I only use Word because I made a sort of template that is the exact size of each label paper I use (6 per page). Copy -> Paste -> print. I use the same label process for wine & beer labels.

You should be able to just click Insert -> Image.

Or even drag and drop an image into the label.

You'll have to do it for each label, which is kind of a pain in the arse... Microsoft doesn't make labels very easy or intuitive... they never have.

If you're using Avery labels, they have a thing online.

I have had good success with Avery Labels and using the online label editor.

I also found this website for clip art. As far as I can tell all of the clipart on the site is public domain. The files are .png files which allow the background color of the label to come through.
