My wife uses Gimp2 to make all of our labels....it's not really that complicated either.

I just brewed a Wit last week and here is the new label for it including the family pet....Biscuit.

I just viewed every single page of this thread. I read as much as I could. There are some really great labels and imaginations here. Do you all use a special type of label paper?

I have found that Color Laser paper works for me. It is water resistant and colors don't run. I just go to an office supply store like Staples and print the labels on the laser color printer with some good quality paper. Glue stick them on.

Thanks for the info. From the looks of your label a couple of posts above, you are getting a really nice 3-D effect too.

We started out using basic labels you can get from most anywhere, then we just print and stick. We have tried out the neck labels. But they do need to be the type that are curved to line up properly. However, if you are going to be consuming the beers alot by yourself, there isn't alot of need for full labels. But we still needed to identify the different types. At the moment, we have 4 or 5 different beer types in storage.

We found that for personal use and identification purposes, we got the 3/4" dia. all-purpose circular labels. Once you line them up properly on the printer, its a fairly simple process (make sure you have a template once you line it up and keep that as reference). We added a simple graphic to identify the type, like an apple for the apple cider. We included the name and the ABV. Then you just stick them on the cap. So you can identify the beer, but not waste alot of money on labels if you are just consuming them yourself.
