Gonna have to give this a try. I was trying to figure out how I am gonna label my beer without having to go through too much trouble. Nice idea and it means I don't have to try and clean labels off of bottles later down the road!

I had the same idea jackson_d - this is such a time saver and takes the guess work out of trying to figure out what you have in storage! Thanks!

For anyone who cares, I believe this is currently the cheapest order (gets you over 5,000 stickers compatible to the avery ones)

Don't the 1" labels fit better? I think Staples even has clear 1" stickers that might look cool?

First of all, I'll join the chorus of people saying that printing labels is the way to go, easier than hand-writting on every bottle and looks much better too.

Second, the 1" labels are actually just a tiny bit bigger than the flat portion of the bottle cap. So a) they're a pain to center when you're trying to put them on and b) they'll end up hanging over the edge of the cap, giving you a wrinkled look around the edge. Neither of these are a huge deal, but having tried both sizes I think you'll get better results (faster to apply and more aesthetically pleasing) going with the 3/4" labels. Now if only they made a 7/8" round label ...

My "labeling" boils down to writing a number on the top of the cap and remembering what beer that number represents

I'm reading the description on this page
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._ya_os_product and it says they have 'Strong adhesive' and are 'Water resistant'.

Seems to go against what you'd want? Has anyone tried these? I use Grolsch bottles and would like to be able to easily remove the labels without too much work when the time comes?

I'm using these:

They print clean & come off easily

How do you remove them, just soak in water?
