Experimenting with Labels

I picked up a package of oval “print-to-the-edge” labels that Avery makes. I have to say, they worked great with the templates available from their website.  Much, much better than the ones I tried last year.  I chose a matte, textured finish 2″ x 3 1/3″ sized white label and had a lot of fun trying out different designs.  Actually I spent way too much time “playing” with design options, without realizing how much time had passed.  A great option for hobby winemakers 🙂
We used these labels for our last two carboys from 2010 (!)… the wine still tastes great, we just never got around to bottling it until the holiday break.  We had 6 gallons of a mixed apple and 5 gallons of a light concord wine.
