I think I'd like to find something besides word for printing, I think thats where my color probs are coming from.
Do you print on standard paper? If so, just make one huge 8.5x11 image in gimp and print it from there, copy and paste the label over and over.

You'd have to scale it, but you're probably already doing that in word.

I make one 3.9x3.0 label and past it 6 times on a WORD sheet. Then make a PDF out of it and email it to Kinkos who. Then they color copy it.

Cut out the 6 images and "glue" them on a bottle with milk using a paint brush.

Labels float right off in water.

Yeah, thanks everyone... I used milk to attach the labels I posted over in my other thread and I've got to say that I was amazed at how well it worked!
