Good resources for labels?

(1/1)

I am going to be brewing a extra stout in a couple weeks.  Plan on conditioning for the year and giving as a christmas gift to folks next year.  Thought maybe it would be cool to work on a label for it.  Anybody have good websites or computer programs for beer bottle labels.  Want something decent that won't run when wet.

I use 4th and Vine lables. You can download MS Word templates to use with them. I originally got them from my local brew supply store but now I get them direct. Contact them at info@4th-vine.com or go to thier web page at http://4th-vine.com.

As far as protecting them after printing what I do is get a can of spary lacquer and give them two or three light coats. The process is this:
Create the lable in MS Word
Print out the required number on my Ink Jet printer
Spray 3 light coast of lacquer spacing each coat about 30 minutes to an hour apart.
Peal and stick the lables.

One thing I really like about these lables is to remove them all you have to do is warm the bottle up with hot water and gently peel it off. No mess!
