I know this is an old thread but I love this idea! I've been trying to figure out a solution for labeling that would stay on well but not be a pain when cleaning bottles. Perfect!

I know this is an old thread, but thanks for this tip. I've been getting tired of explaining what my chicken scratch sharpie writing meant on the bottle cap and also getting "Is this a M or a W?" on my wheat beer.

Bought the Avery labels today and it worked great.

I have also been using this method since I found it here. My staples had one size larger... I think 7/8" IDK if it will fit easily, so I got the 3/4" which seems too small, but it's perfect for labeling them.

If you do put a label on the glass it just looks that much more complete, and if you don't it looks nice too.

Actually I need to make new ones for my newest IPA I'm bottling tomorrow...

Hey guys, if you are looking at doing this, the Avery 5408 3/4" round labels are perfect. You can get 42 sheets (1008 labels) for like 6 bucks at staples or office max. Here are some pics:

The "source image" I made for it:

clear round labels would probably work good also if you dont have color printer
