What type of labels and software does everyone use?
I'm looking to start labeling my beer and would rather learn from others mistakes. Thanks!

I use Adobe Photoshop CS3 - They take a PDF file to a printer and print off 6 on a sheet of paper. Use milk to attached the labels to the bottles. Color Copiers are better then color printers as the ink does not run at all.

3.9in by 3.25 per lable will get you 6 on a page. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...bs/hazel2a.jpghttp://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...s/Blackcat.jpghttp://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...amyDreamy2.jpg

Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Illustrator CS4, but those are VERY expensive (I'm a graphic designer by trade). Do a search for The Gimp. It's freeware that does most of the basic stuff that Photoshop does.

CS4...are you kidding me...I just spent $600 on CS3, they should make the updates free.

LOL - I spent $20 on CS3 and love it. OK OK - I split the $40 with another guy! I love Ebay. Sorry Chris.

Printed out, color copied, cut down then attached with a milk solution.

Gimp. I have Inkscape, but I haven't used it much so far.
