Default Water Resistant Labels

I'm brewing and bottling a batch for my brothers wedding. I wanted to make labels for the bottles so they would be a little nicer than amber and gold.

I've looked around and have found a few websites. Anyone have any experience with them?

I'm looking for water resistant labels that won't run when the beer sweats. Ideally people could keep the bottles looking nice after drinking them.

The myownlabels have the best designs.

Would I just be better off printing them myself? Thanks for your help

I stopped making labels awhile ago just because I don't feel it's worth the time, but I can see where you'd want to label them at a wedding. Adds a nice touch.

When I was labeling, I would spray polyurithane*sp?* over the labels once they were printed on removable label paper from onlinelabels.com It helps keep them from bleeding, but not to the level of commercial brews. You can buy water resistant ink and most office shops, but it's expensive.

It was once suggested to me to use an alternative to labels. Make little tags like something you'd see on a stuffed animal. Put them on a little dog tag like chain and drape it around the bottle neck. It adds a unique touch and it's easy.

He who drinks beer sleeps well. He who sleeps well cannot sin. He who does not sin goes to heaven.

Another HERMS rig...

Revvy has a template for tags that you can hang from the necks. Very nice looking and might help keep the condensation from soaking the labels. Otherwise, I don't know how you can absolutely keep the labels from running.

Check a bit down the page on this link:


I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
