I like the "Fat Bastard" label. Give the self-adhesive labels a try. They're much easier than using milk.
Yes, I Used MS Publisher to create the label. It really didn't take that long to create. How are the self adhesive labels when it is time to remove them? The main reason I used milk was for easy removal. If the self adhesive labels come off pretty easy I might give them a try...

The self-adhesive labels come off fairly easily. Probably not as easily as using the milk method, but not bad. Usually I peel the labels off as I'm rinsing the bottle after drinking and it comes off pretty well.
