Default great looking labels

voodoocurt, those labels of yours are great looking!

I'm thinking about labeling a few of my American Brown ales that should be ready in a week or two to give to a few friends around the holidays. The Avery labels seem like an easy way to do it.

I never label bottles of my own as I don't care to remove labels from a bottle more than once, but for gifts to others, I like the idea.

Or take a sharpie to the caps

I only bottle, and I reuse my stock. I have no interest in continually removing labels for cleaning, but it is nice to have some sort of marking so I know what's what. I've been using the sharpie on the cap method, but even that gets old. I've been thinking about just getting a pricing gun and being done with it. A simple batch code or battling date is all I really need.

I use a Dymo label printer, and just slap the new labels on top of the old ones. After I get four or five piles on top of each other, I usually try to rip. the stack off and start over.
