What paper exactly are you using? The waterproof or the removeable or what?
I would also like to know what material your using. I use onlinelabels.com all the time. GREAT RESOURCE! I think I ordered standard white matte the first time and ordered a ton of labels and they suck when it comes to removing them to reuse the bottles. Anyone used a different material that is much easier to remove?

Depending on the size of your labels, its not uncommon to get 3 to 6 labels per page, so you're talking a few bucks to label up a full 6 gallon batch.

What are you using to glue your labels? And do you have bleeding/fading issues with just using standard paper?

I use gelatin to stick on the labels, as outlined in this thread. Its fantastic - holds for over a year (oldest labels are 18 months on the bottle and going strong), holds on in cold water, but comes right off in hot water - without residue on the bottle!

As for fading, its not much of an issue with laser prints. Unlike bubblejet inks, which are thin liquids that literally stain the paper (and thus are exposed to oxygen, leading to fading), laser inks are pigments encapsulated in plastic. The plastic protects the inks from from oxygen, so fading is much less of an issue. So long as the inks are not exposed to direct sunlight of constant fluorescent lighting, they should be stable for years.
