This is out of the reach of most homebrewers but it was pretty neat to play with.

It has super smooth action. All you need to do is hold the handle and push forward. There is an animation on their website that shows how it works. Momentum Development

The unit was $899 from morebeerpro.com. As for the labels. I believe the company we got it from was Innovative Labeling Solutions. We got the price down pretty nice because we bought 10k labels. 5k for our Vanilla porter and 5k for our Rye Pale Ale.

I believe in the end we got it down to about $0.22 per label. 4.75" x 8.5" for bombers. So it was a pretty big label.

Sweet contraption! I used to work for a label printer. I kept trying to get them to get into the craft beer label market, but they wouldn't listen to me.

Are your labels self adhesive? I see that most commercial labels out there right now are "cut and stack", meaning it does not already have adhesive on the back, and there is no backing. they have to actually glue the labels on, and cut them apart in line.

Edited my post. I had the process wrong. They come on a roll, but are not self adhesive.

Yeah ours are on a roll and self adhesive. Pressure labels. They are slightly thicker stock then most because of the look we were going for. The machine works great with them.
