Wondering what software folks use to make labels like those that Mrs. Johnd made? Those are incredible. My labels are just silver or gold hand written using a glass pen. Works fine, and the wine dosen’t know. Would love to make up some artwork and actually make a proper label.
yeah, i'd like to know too and especially what/where the ideas and patterns come from
Wifey uses Avery #22827 labels, they are waterproof, easily removed, vinyl like labels, and print with a laser jet printer, four to a sheet. The Avery website offers free formatting, which we use. The images come from www.dreamstime.com , you do pay for the images selected, but the charge is usually nominal.
I have used the Avery #22827 also . Then used some of my own photos .
Have them printed a Office Depot a decent price.
Thanks for the response. I'll be sure to check out "dreamstime".
You may want to check out www.sheetlabels.com for their removable polyester weatherproof labels. I've been using their RXW - SL571 (4 per sheet at 4.75x3.75) and have them printed at Staples on their laser printer. I believe they are mush less expensive than the Avery labels.
As a matter of fact I've just come back from Staples with the latest label -see below
There ia an app called Painnt that enables you to modify your pictures to a more art version form. There are many different styles to apply. Some are free (and the free ones change over time). The ones that are not free are nominal.
I bought a couple of the Troublemaker just for fun, but the Jacobs Creek bottles are for the long run.
Didn't realize there was a Troublemaker white wine.
They made a Troublemaker Sauv Blanc for a couple years.
Cannot make up my mind on what occasion I should pop the cork on this one.
Never tried a port this old if indeed is 30 year old?!
New Years is coming...
That's the stuff.
I thought about it but I think we're staying put by ourselves at home, me/wife/kids
As Clarence Clemons used to say, life is short so "Get the good wine." Happy New Year!
You’re absolutely right!!
We shall see.
Wait for it...
@mainshipfred: I found another Touriga Nacional based blend at Wegman's tonight. No idea if it's any good, but I'll report back later.
Definitely worth a try. I'll need to get another bottle and try that one with some "fat meats".
