Hey guys,

I’m hoping as many of you can share some insight on your experience with making custom labels. I’m new to this process, so any info on software or online platforms and materials would be much appreciated!

Best;

Diego

I use the free Avery software. It is not perfect but is still fairly versatile.

I can’t seem to find the download version like I am using but it is still available online here.

I have had some pretty good success with it, I even used it to design my logo.

Once your label are done I’d recommend sticking it on using milk.

It  works supprisingly well.  Just put some milk in a saucer and wet the back of your printed labels and stick it to your bottles.

Thanks for the tip Dwayne! quick question on that note, what type of label printing paper would you use for that?

Just use regular bond printer paper.

Its supprising how well it works, plus you just have to soak them in some water and they come right off.  Just don’t cool your beer in ice watter or the lables will slip off.

The first time I tried this I was doubtful and worried it might stink of bad milk.  But they stuck great and no smell.  I used skim milk.

Also, print your labels on a laser jet printer. Don’t use inkjet since the label will bleed once you dip it in the milk to apply.
