Default Label Making Software

Hey what graphic software do you guys recomend when I go to make up some labels? You'll probably save me from downloading half a dozen different progs.

Default MS Word - Labels

I use microsoft word tools, labels (like mailing labels). choose a template that suits the size you are looking for. Use regular printer paper, cut out the lables, then glue them to the bottle with milk. They stay on great and come off easy with water. It's cheap!
