Do these exist? Do most HBers just use the standard blanks? I thought this would be a great way to mark my beers without labelling them, as I just discovered removing labels sucks.

I just use different colored caps for each batch. I have about eight different colors. Check out www.homebrewheaven.com They have caps in a variety of colors. Beyond that, the above post with the Avery dot labels is a good idea. The color code system works for me. I usually can't keep more than about four batches around at the same time anyway...

A couple days ago someone started a thread about laser etching bottlecaps...of course you need access to a laser to do it...

I just use a sharpie myself...

I did that, but thought it was a pain. My handwriting is pretty crappy and the small size of the caps made it difficult to mark them legibly. I bought some printable round labels and downloaded an MS Word template and print them that way. Works like a charm and I can color code each batch.

I got excited when I saw this, but it looks like they just use round stickers...not very professional looking in my opinion...
