I don't get too crazy with my labels. I shoot for functionality over pretty. The information I want on the label is the name of the beer, when it was brewed and when it was bottled. I use and Avery label as well, can't recall the number but it's maybe two inches tall and 3-4 inches wide. Big enough to include all the info but cheap enough that I don't feel like I'm wasting money on labels. I think I can get 250 or so for around $6 at Office Depot and they print just fine on the small laser I have at home.

I probably can't dissuade you, But I only mark my caps. Labels are a pain in the butt to get off if you re-use bottles. I use stamps(ink) on my caps. I have found this great water resistant ink that can be used on bottles too. The problem with stamps on the bottle is that the beer must be light enough to see the stamp.
On the cap it works great. My latest one is a spider web that looks really cool on the cap. I did it in red ink on a brass cap. I then stamped the name of the beer over that. It actually looks really good on a plain bottle.

The labels I get are the easy remove kind so there's no scrubbing or anything to clean the bottles, they just peel right off. But if they do stick for some reason a soak in Oxyclean for a night will clear it up.

aekdbbop...can we order blank, printer-friendly labels through you? If so, what sizes do you have available and at what price?
