I want to make some labels

Postby dartedplus » Sat May 19, 2001 10:08 am

I'd like to make some labels for my beer, but I'm unsure of what kind of program would be good for doing this, and then what should i print these labels onto. If anyone is currently doing this let me know what you use. Thanks, Ed

Brewsource sells labels. Although I've never used them, they sound fine. The are "dry gummed" so they'll come off easy when your done with the bottle. You wouldn't want to use a regular printer label because the adhesive is too good and you'll never get it all off afterwards. As for what program to use, just about anything. Paint Shop Pro is a great program for doing just about any artwork. They have a trial version available for download at www.jasc.com.......Good luck!

plain paper

Postby xbrewer » Tue May 22, 2001 8:02 pm

Why not print labels on plain printer paper? I've read somewhere (Zymurgy perhaps) that milk makes a good adhesive for beer labels. It holds the label when dry but comes off very easily when wet. You might want to spray or brush some kind of water resistant finish on them to keep the ink from running.

Online Labels

Postby l48shark » Thu May 24, 2001 10:02 pm

Check out www.myownlabels.com. I have not used their product yet, but this was recommended to me by a homebrew club member. I have printed labels that I designed in Windows Paintbrush on regular paper and attached with a glue stick with success, but the colors ran when the labels got wet in the cooler. The labels from the website are not supposed to run when wet.

It is very common for home brewers to desire to augment their custom brew with a custom label. After all, a bottle without a label just doesn

Labels; Software, etc

Postby andytv » Wed Oct 17, 2001 6:28 pm

I know this response is a little late, but here is what we do in my brew club;

Use a good graphics program to create the lebel. I use Microsoft Visio (a bit pricey but very versatile). You'll find that visio has numerous applications, from label design to process mapping and facility layouts (sort of like CAD for the windows savvy). Visio allows you to save your logo, label template etc, and you can add just about any graphic you pick up online.

After creating the scale label w/ Visio, I paste them into a cheap label software program, like the one that comes with your printer (can also paste into Word or excel, but it is a little more difficult to format the page).

You will find that Avery has numerous label sheets available (Maco is a cheaper off-brand). They also feature an easily removable label. We use the cheap 2X4" shipping labels. They can be removed by soaking the bottles in cold water for a few days, add bleach to the water and you have a bottle pre-cleaning bath.

The only drawbacks are

1) Printer ink, which can be overcome by making the labels at work, but make sure you also make some flashy color reports for your boss to justify the ink usage.

2) They do bleed. They won't last 5 minutes in an ice cooler.

I am currently making labels on GIMP. you can download it free at . I print on shipping 2" by 3" shipping labels(i get the OfficeMax brand because they are cheaper than Avery). If you are keeping bottles in fridge, these work just fine. When you reuse the bottles, just soak them in hot water and they pretty much pull away.

Waterproof map paper

Postby BritBrewer » Wed Aug 13, 2008 10:31 am

I use waterproof map paper when I print out trail maps and they seem to hold up well, so I thought it might be good to use for printing labels. I'm gonna brew my first beer next week and will try it out, so I'll let you know how if it works. It might be a little pricey, but I already have some paper at home so it's worth a shot! If not, I like the idea of the cap dots!
