Do y'all buy or print your own labels. Where do you get them and/or what program do you use? Have you found a good free program?
I also use them, but sometimes I need something special. It sounds like Avery is the way to go!I buy only Winexpert kits from Labelpeelers and get the labels they have to go with them. They're from LD Carlson and the latest ones are vinyl and peel off easily and leave virtually no residue on the bottle. Makes life a lot easier. They cost $5.99/30 - about 20 cents a bottle.
All of my wines since 16 are the Avery labels, wifey does all of the design and printing at home.I haven't made or bought any labels yet, but I do like the professional look that I've seen on Stoney Creek. I've mocked up a few and they look great. So I may go that direction first.
How good do the Avery labels look? Can someone share some pictures? I know there's a LABELS thread, but not sure it tells us how they were made.
I use the Avery 22827 labels, you peel a corner up with a fingernail and peel it right off, doesn't leave any residue or glue. The labels are vinyl, peel and stick to to your bottles, withstand complete submersion in water, don't come off, ink doesn't fade or run, pretty much the best product we've ever used from application to removal.How easily do the avery labels come off? I've been using laser printer on standard printer paper and a glue stick. Cutting and gluing takes a bit more time than I'd prefer on the front end, but they look pretty good and come off super easy. Wet the label first, double rinse the inside, put the label back under the faucet and just rub it for a second or two with your palm and the label and all the glue come right off. I've tested some of the labels included with the cheap fontana kits and they're too much of a pain to remove.
