My wife planned a party for the opening of my first two batches so I made some labels. I'm a graphic designer and this is such an exciting time, I just had to make labels. I'm thinking a dab of Elmers glue in the corners will hold them on long enough for everyone to see them and get some pictures. I'll probably only do it for special occasions and use a batch number on the cap for the regular batches.

Has any one ever looked at getting bottle caps printed up with their own logo on it?

Yeah, the quality difference between the sticker and printing on the metal is pretty small, but the price difference would have to be huge.

I just use a sharpie, although I still like to have a label designed for each batch, for posterity. Maybe, I'll frame them all someday.

I prefer labeling the crowns. Long live the sharpie method!
Beer labels are like condoms, they aren't really much good for more the one use.

In order to avoid opening Pandora's box, I will at this point refrain from expressing my opinion any further on the merits of homebrewing and label design.

My fridge is full or two or three homebrews, some have labels, some don't, some definately have the wrong labels...then I drink 4 and forget about the problem.

Illiterate, or one too many homebrews?

Quick story: I sell vehicles, we went to a Housing Authority in the city where i live to go over specs on there vehicles before they went out to bid. The guy who had a bit of a slur says "i need to go get a pen and paper, cuz im dyslexic". well, i have since called being 5 sheets to the wind at 10 in the morn, someone 10 ft away being able to smell booze, most likely will piss himself in 8 min drunk.......Dyslexic!

Anyone getting Dyslexic tonight?

I read that milk works as a mild bottle adhesive. Print the labels on plain paper and brush the back with milk. Then they will easily come off with warm water. I read about that in a Coopers brochure. Never tried it though.
