Well I'm not really sure how to get images to post, but I'll give it a try. These are the labels I've designed so far for my nano-brewery, Samuel Waterston Beer Co.

I just printed them out at Staples and rubber cemented them to the bottles. Worked pretty well. Let me know what you think.

Actually I just washed em, all you have to do is peel them off. Works great. It seems to be the only thing that has gone really smoothly with the brewing process.

And yes, Sam Waterston rocks. What a thespean!

Glass is not porous so the rubber cement should peel off nicely.

I have no idea what possessed you to name your beer/brewery after that dude, but, personal opinions aside, your labels look really nice. That's some quality Photoshop/editing work. I wouldn't have thought that rubber cement would work so well, but hb_99 makes a good point.

That did not even occur to me....gonna have to give it a try, since I'm not having any better luck with using peel and stick labels.

I tried some Avery labels, but they're a total PITA to remove. Just not worth it. I know Avery makes some removable labels, but I can't find them in the store and I hate paying that much money just for frickin' labels (with shipping it's $30 for 150 labels). I'm going to try either glue stick or rubber cement, I've got too many brews around, I'm starting to forget which ones are which.

I don't know why, but I trust your brewery. And with Mr. Waterston as the voice, only good beer will follow.

Nice labels.

Thanks man, it's good to know that Sam does indeed inspire confidence. Plus it's an excuse to ignore work and school and such to play with photoshop.
