Also, don't forget that a local printer might be able to produce a quality label at a very reasonable price.

+1 to grogtag.  I ordered from them for a beer I did for a friend as a surprise for his wedding (big barleywine).  The quality was very nice.  Much better than anything I could have done myself for close to that price.  While I was at it, I ordered some custom bottle caps and a sign as well with my homebrew logo.  The caps are very nice looking.  The sign is nice as well.  It's going to be hanging in my bar area when I finally move.  All very good products though.

Laser printer with Milk is my standard.  A good printer and a very quick dip in the milk works best.

Recently, I bought some shrink wrap label holders from the Fast Rack guys.   I saw their product at NHC, tried a couple they gave me and it worked really well.  (Dont have to worry about labels running in the milk and it holds up OK in the cooler too.)

Grog tags are REALLY cool though, but price wise, that might add up.

I use MS Publisher and print 8 labels per sheet on a laser printer. The labels have a faded/washed out  background pic, includes the name of the beer, a born on date and alcohol content. Then I use a glue stick to apply the labels. YMMV... Cheers!!!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
