Default Just ordered some new labels

http://www.neato.com/catalog/productinfo.aspx?id=628


Just order a pack of 100 labels for $26.55. Has anyone ever used these before?

I found a coupon code for 20% if anybody is interested
Code: FNR2

Wow... that seems really expensive to me. They're cool, but that's only enough labels for TWO 5-gallon batches. That's essentially adding about $11 to each of your brews.

They look great! I don't usually label every beer in an entire batch any way so the price isn't THAT bad for a professional label. When I do label it is milk glue on laserprinter paper

Have you printed any yet? If you have, can you dunk a labeled beer in water and see if it runs?

If it doesn't, I'm buying a bunch. I've been looking for labels like this.

Edit: Screw it. I'm ordering them anyway.

Well the only reason they are expensive is because they are waterproof...or that what the site says. So, I'm guessing that they are some kind of vinyl material. As far as other inkjet vinyl labels I've seen, this is a pretty good deal.

Plus, it's not like you are going to label every batch of beer. That would be crazy. Labels like these are for gifts or special occasions IMO.

Exactly, and you don't even have to label an entire batch either. Plus if you have a house brew, you should be able to reuse them, or you could just make a universal label...something of that nature
