Default Printing labels?

I'm ready, to label my first beer and I'm just wondering what you all do to print yours. Do you buy generic labels and print at home? If so, what labels do you buy? Thanks for any help

Primary:Mosaic Azacca IPA
Drinking: It's Wedding Saison, Mosaic Single Hop Pale, Crystal Ave Milk Stout, Cut Day Pale Ale, Yooper's Oatmeal Stout (with some extra roast)

+1 to ^^^^. I've also seen some people (Revvy) utilize a "tag" label that slips over the neck. That way, there is no need to remove labels/glue again after the bottles are emptied.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics, even if you win you're still retarded.

"presentation" paper - a tad thicker and better quality, on an inkjet printer - then a spray of krylon clear to protect from condensation. I tried the "milk-as-glue" trick, but it really doesn't work for me near as well as a simple glue-stick.
