Do you guys label also?

I just find it easier to write on my caps, so having printed ones like that would force me to label = too much effort to stick them on + remove them

Yeah,
http://www.bottlemark.com is a great website. Give them a few weeks to get them done but they are cheap and great quality. As far as labels I can not contest to finding any great label websites but I did just order some weather proof gloss labels to print at home from online labels .Com
I will let you know how well they work and post pictures.

For me, the best way to label is to design something online on a free picture editor, then print laser-jet and affix with gelatin-glycerin glue. They look pretty good, and they come off with oxyclean (but not ice water).
