I have some 3.5 x 5 self adhesive lables, (Avery 5168) that I am about to try. The size is just about right so I wont be cutting each one to size, and I like the fact that the known dimensions of this number work well with other apps like Word etc.
Anyone had any experience with this kids of label? Removal etc?

I'm bottling this double Dry-Hopped PA and a real label is needed to do it justice.

If you really want to "do it justice," you'll want to go with a color laser printer. Color laser makes the paper waterproof, which is good, but waterproof paper + avery adhesive means that getting the labels off will be. . . not a pain in the ass, but harder than if you had used milk, or even a glue stick.

Primary 1: Hasty IPA
Primary 2:
Secondary: Soured Golden
Kegged: American Wheat
Bottled: Belgian Golden Ale.

+1 on the laser jet printer

removing labels that were printed with a ink jet printer sucks

also when removing them lat them soak for a few hours in oxi-clean it helps
