Are you talking brewing or word processing or what?

Ignore my last post, I didn't relate your question to the forum. It is kind of obvious now, but then again...

I hand-draw parts of my labels (basic shapes, icons, etc.), then scan the drawing into Photoshop and do the rest from there.

A friend did the art work for me and I just put it into Word as a jpg file and printed off a master sheet to fit Avery 5164 labels (3 1/3X4). I then take the master and labels down to the local copy shop and get them to run copies on my labels on their color laser printer.

The inkjets would run really bad, I think and the color laser copies don't. Also, they are easy to get off when your wife is cleaning the bottles (I am just too thoughtful toward her!).
