Wine and Beer Bottle Hanging Tags.
 
After looking all day for hanging tags templates for bottles, I made up one of my own as a MS word Document.

http://kyz5wq.blu.livefilestore.com/...tle%20tags.jpg

Each tag is approx 2 inches wide, and the text area after the fold is about 5 inches.

I was going to upload the msword doc, but even with all the pics and text blocks removed it still exceeds the limit to just upload here. If someone wants it I guess you could pm me and I'll email you the document. Unless someone has an idea of where to upload it to so I can link it here for anyone.

I don't like to glue labels on, especially since I spend so much time removing them. So I like the idea of a hanging tag that slips over the neck of the bottle and hangs there. I printed it out on thick photopaper. All you need to do is cut them out, cut out the hole for the neck (or just make 2 slits at the cross) and fold it downword.

You just basically need to stick a graphic in each space, and add your own text to the text blocks...Or move stuff around and add your own text boxes wherever you want it.

What about saving it as a web page from Word, then zipping up the contents - or even compressing the word file? They generally compress quite a bit.

I use someting similar with beer I put up in the cellar. Just a short tag to identify where and when purchased (or brewed) and notes about the fresh product if available.
Good idea revvy!

They actually look much nicer than the little mini pic I on here. I'm kinda proud of the what I wrote for each one as well. The three things I'm giving my boss are a bottle of my Bourbon Oaked/Smoked Old Bog Road Brown Ale, Poor Richard's Ale, and a year old Apfelwein. Those and a loaf my Jamaican Spiced Rum soaked Banana Bread.

I haven't heard back from Revvy, I'm guessing demand for the templates has subsided. For those of you interested, here they are- Thanks Revvy!

Very interesting concept. Will run it by SWMBO, who makes our labels.

You say you do not like to glue on labels as you spend so much time getting them off. I am using the milk as glue tip I learned here on the forums and can't believe how well milk holds our simple paper labels on and how super easy they come off just running water over them. One of the many things I have quickly learned from the forums.

That seems like a pretty cool idea, I would think you would want to use some sort of card stock? Me thinks regular comp paper would be too flimsy.
