I got some new label making material for Christmas, and I decided it was just about time to open them up and give them a whirl for the Beef on Weck Ale. These labels are made by ABS Inc. I can't find any web site associated with the company but they are available in a variety of colors: blue, green, white, orange, red, and yellow.
These labels couldn't be any easier to use. All you have to do is design your labels, print the paper, moisten the back and apply.
Overall, I was fairly impressed by these labels. They stick great on the bottles (much better than the glue sticks I used to use). And although it has yet to be seen how easily these will peel off once the beer has been drank, my hopes are high. I tested one by wetting a small corner of one of the bottles and after a few seconds the label started peeling off with no problem at all. The rest of the label however was rock solid and started ripping when I got to the dry portion.
All in all, these labels look great. I am quite excited to get some of the white ones so I can start printing in colors and not only use black and white.
