$1 is a great value when you look at time to design, waste from proofs, consumables (paper, ink, labels), shipping, and of course quality. IMO.

I used to print my own but since the company shut down the building I don't have access to our high-end printer
Ditto.

I'm using Avery Design & Print. They discontinued the desktop version -- I'm using the last version that was published. I tried their online version a couple of years ago -- it used fonts my printer didn't support to I wasted half a dozen sheets of labels as the font substitution was FUBAR. I haven't tried it since then.

I went to David Noone’s Noontime Custom Labels site (www.noontimelabels.com) after reading this thread, and it was amazingly easy to create a label for my first kit of Stag’s Leap Merlot! I ordered a set and just got a notice that I’m “in production”. I can’t wait to receive and will post a picture of the label when I receive 👌
Definitely quality labels. They give your bottles that 'Pro' feel.

Started making wine last year in June and safe to say I am addicted! Just bottled our sixth batch, and started a 5 gallon batch of skeeter pee! We name each one after something going on in our lives, so I am happy to introduce "Vaccine Selfie!"

Bonus label for our future batch, named in honor of our puppy who will be coming home right around the time we bottle!Screen Shot 2021-04-25 at 8.02.21 PM.pngIMG_2534.jpgScreen Shot 2021-04-25 at 8.02.56 PM.png

Received my second batch from Sheetlabels.com. This set looked a little bleached out compared to the first set. They reprinted the batch for free although their policy says this variation can happen. They offer color matching as a safeguard, but that may be an add-on service. Either way, I plan to go that route to ensure high quality for an otherwise good experience so far.

One of my habits has been to print half a dozen joke labels. The reaction of folks when reading the fine print can be entertaining. This one is a first draft for next fall:

BTW: the background picture is the mansion prop from the Monster Movie Matinee, which broadcast in Syracuse NY from the 60's into the 80's (AFAIK). As a child it creeped me out. As an adult, I find it sad that folks don't allow themselves to be entertained by truly cheesy special effects.

I'm made some overtly weird labels, but I find they are not as much fun. Subtle is more entertaining -- for me, anyway.

In the late 90's, I had been out of winemaking for a few years, then jumped back in. Among other things I tried a Cabernet Sauvignon concentrate and a WineArt White Bordeaux kit. Both actually turned out ok, but feeling whimsical, my labels for each batch were not serious.

The labels were created using Microsoft Word, as I didn't have a decent graphics program. Kind of klugy ... but it worked!

Agreed. I grew up watching Son of Svengoolie on WFLD in Chicago. Loved (and still do) those classic cheese-o-rama horror flicks. To my delight, several years ago I found that Rich Koz is again playing Svengoolie on MeTV Saturday nights. My family hates it...

I like the labels.

I've used sheetlabes for couple of years now - I create the label online from their site, download the pdf file and take blank label sheets to Staples to have them printed
