    Are those actual foil (metal) caps? How exactly do you apply those? I bet they look much better than the shrink wrapped ones.

    They are the PVC/Shrink Wrap foils. I just dip them in boiling water. The trick is to be sure the water is at a slight boil. Anything less, and they come out wrinkled. 2-3 seconds in the boiling water does the trick.

    You are right, also searching for free hi-resolution photos works

    And if I remember correctly when I was just a little younger, Leslie Nielsen was the Swamp Fox. Still remember the tune, "Swamp Fox, Swamp Fox riding in the glen...."

    I'm still in the learning curve on all the different facets of the winemaking hobby. Making my own labels with pictures of my own fruit is part of the fun. And I have been stumbled across the removable labels which are really great. I have tried the Avery 22827 labels - 3.5" X 4.75" - which are a bit pricey at $.50 each. But really do peel off easily. The Avery 6464 labels (6 to a sheet - 3.33" X 4" ) are about $.15 each. They work well in MS Word. But I really like the Avery 5450 labels - only $3.20 for 40 ($.07 each) and apply and remove REALLY easy. Plus - they print all the way to the edge. They work well on the full shoulder Bordeaux Bottles - not so good on bottles with long, sloping necks.

    It's actually a sketch from one of my favorite Romantic period artists :)

    I put wines up in half gallon jugs. I put a label on the cap and larger ones on the case of 6 bottles.. Strictly utilitarian!

    Did a quickie white zin kit for my wife to give to her sister as a moving away present. She chose a pic of the two of them at a Mexican restaurant as the label, no words, no wine name, no ABV, just this:

    Thanks! Like most things I do - not fancy, but personal. The art work was actually a painting done by the son of a childhood friend. I agreed to give him a couple bottles for using it.............provided I wasn't selling the wine.
