That looks like a hell of a good time! Well done!
Beer is like music. I don't have a favorite. I'll take a well-made example of any style!

Other than image editing software like Photoshop, Gimp, etc., nope.  Just need the label paper and the template for the paper, which can be downloaded from Neato's website for free.

It was definitely not your average wedding!

Do you have a close-up of those labels? The quality looks pretty good from where I'm standing... but I'd like to be sure before ordering a bunch.

Oh, and are the labels waterproof?

Unfortunately, I don't have a close-up.  The quality is really top notch though.  I was very pleased.

Although they advertise that these are waterproof labels, the colors definitely ran.  They looked pretty awful after they'd been put in an ice bath.   >:(

I suspect that had you used a laser printer they would not have bled in the water. ink jet ink is just not waterproof. did the labels come loose in the water? that's probably what they were referring to when they said they were waterproof. they can't really do anything to make ink jet ink waterproof.
