Nice label! I like the tone of your informational paragraphs too; friendly and not overly formal.

FYI, you've got a typo at "...greatest song ever recorded..." I'd hate to see you print a bunch of these off and discover it later.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've gotta roll, can't stand still, gotta flaming heart, can't get my fill.

Any wet shavers here? I always thought this might become a good label for those who know ....



My preference would be to put it on a lemon shandy but ... who knows. ....

Wow you guys all have some great labels. I haven't made my own based on the fact I have like 150 Summit bottles that they must have nuclear engineered the labels onto, but I'm working on it!

Working on label designs. So far I've got the logo more or less how I like it. Adding the style/ABV/IBU stats might be done as hazmat warning diamonds or as elemental symbols (such as with a good Periodic Table of Beer Styles).

Hey there guys. There's so many replies in the thread so to save time do anyone have the answer to sticking paper labels to plastic bottles?
One thing is that it must come off after so it can be reused. I have glass bottles and use milk to stick them on but havnt tried plastic bottles with my labels. Will milk work to??

Cheers

I don't have the good solution, but I can save you some time experimenting with milk or gelatin. They don't work well on plastic..........

I've found that a combination of milk/gelatin can be pretty strong stuff and might stick to plastic. Mix up a one-to-one blend until it starts to congeal and then microwave it for like 5-10 seconds - you'll be able to apply it to the label and the bottle while it stays hot.

Other than that, maybe a hot glue gun would work. You can just pull and scrap the glue off when you're done with it.
