Default Buying Bottles w/ Yer Label

Can anyone tell me if they know of a great company who would sell you the bottles and put your label on them for you???

Or do most of you guys who own yer own breweries simply put them on youselves?????

Thanks in adance

My low-budget solution is to print out my labels on normal paper, cut them out, and stick them on my bottled beer using milk. It works implausibly well.

Yeah I've been doing that, but thinkin in the long run for putting labels on a lot of bottles instead of a few. If I did them myself it might take a while.

Also wanted to use clear labels instead of paper......

Have you seen those before??? Stone Brewery uses those

Stone glass etches their bottles and paints them.

I may ask them about it when I go back to visit their brewery

you might try www.etchingexpressions.com. They're in OC somewheres. I think they only do wine bottles, but I think they can probably do the 22oz bottles.

I dont know about bottles, but you could probably buy a roll or two of your labels printed on a clear label stock. Look for flexo printers with a digital storefront, or find one in your area. Look for pressure sensitive labels.

It would be cool to make a template and use glass etching solution on your bottles.
