agreed ... just tried the milk adhesive trick today, and I'm totally blown away by how well this works!! I'll try to post pics with the results. It's very impressive!

Whoever came up with this trick is pure genius.

You can make a quite simple, yet elegant, label using Microsoft Office. First, go to Staples or OfficeMax and buy a package of Avery label #8164 - those labels are 3.33" tall and 4" wide, perfect for bottles.

Next, go home, open MS Office, and click on Tools. Select Letters and Mailings. Select Envelopes and Labels. Click the Labels tab, then click the Options button. Under Label Information, find Label products - select Avery standard from the drop-down menu. Under Product number, select "8164 - Shipping". Click the Ok button. Once that dialog box is gone, click the New Document button.

Now you've got a preformatted Word document perfectly aligned to the Avery labels. You can make some pretty groovy labels in this way, with some neat graphics.

It's quick and easy. Have fun!

Cheers,

Bob
Very helpful. Thanks.

I use 1" Avery #05410 labels for my bottle caps.

You can type in 5 (small) lines...

I was wondering if anyone has tried using these labels before:
Beer Bottle Labels - Bottle Labels - OL3078 - 3.4956" x 2.9944" - 8 Labels Per Sheet

They have the rectangle with a neck label as well. I made up an awesome label in illustrator but I'm having a hard time getting the labels to print exactly on the labels. I don't know if its just me or their "template" they provided is just wrong.

Label:
Sunset Cream Ale Label by ~DeFined04 on deviantART

I use the avery 55164 Repositionable labels. They come off pretty easily when you need them to.

I also used the color laser printer at work and didn't top coat. They came out great.

I use 24lb coasted paper that is shiny. I print them on a lazer printer and I stick on with milk/flour paint. I uualy only make a neck band label so if we want to plop them into a cooler up to the sholder it does not take the label off right away.

If your printing on Avery labels from an inkjet printer and spray with thin coats of shellac will this keep condensation from smearing the ink or do you have to use a laserjet?
