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

I just print mine off with a laser printer and stick them on with some good 'ole elmers glue.

+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.

"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.
