    so as i was finishing up a fresh batch of juice and sticking the label on the bottle i started wondering how everyone else labels their bottles?

    when i first started making my own i'd just slap a plain white label on the bottle and use a sharpie to write the flavor and make date. but being a graphic designer i'm kinda anal about presentation so i found these cool old timey blank labels to print the info on. still not as slick as i would like but it'll do for now.

    Oh wow. rhyme name slang. “What’s the deal MacNeil?” Was another one. That’s some seriously anachronistic stuff. Old parents? That’s where I got mine.

    I use tape and a sharpie. I've never had a good reason to get any fancier than that, me and my wife are the only people that ever see them.

    I use silicone striping tape and a sharpie. Now that I'm down to one flavor (coconut), I wonder why I need to label it at all. It was useful when I had different flavors and strengths.

    #metoo. Best part about it is that it's low tack and easily removable with very little residue

    I DIY extensively (and even sell quite a bit to friends and what not) I NEED to come up with a nice label for my bottles but have NO idea where to get started! Where do you get your blank labels from?

    Here’s an example of one of my labels. It’s not bad but not as professional as I’d like.

    Blank labels could’ve had at any office supply store if you’re willing to use paper. A lot of labels are low density styrene now. It’s going to have different ink adhesion. They seem to come off easier than the paper ones though which is a bonus.

    I use a DYMO label printer that works from my computer (I have hand problems and can't use teeny tiny keyboards) so I can set up all the info I want and save the label to just change the date. To be honest, though, now I just pretty much color code*
    my normal recipes and just stick a piece of the right color on so I'm only really labeling new flavors or moving targets.

    * That's a fairly old picture - I now use a combination of colored label tape and (a limited number) of colored drip caps.
