What are you planning to use for glue? When I made a label for a gift bottle a few months ago, Zymurgy Bob(?) recommended plain gelatin. I followed his recommendation and it worked very well. Just mix a small amount with warm water and brush it on the back of the label.

Got an email today with a new label from
[url]https://www.beerlabelizer.com/
[/url]

and wanted to give this a bump.

If you haven't looked there take a couple of minutes and browse.
I know a lot of members use them. There is a registration and you can pay, not sure exactly what you're paying for.
I play with one then click the magnifying glass and it pops up. Then you can save to print.
They have a lot of stock labels and also some you add your own images.
Very easy to do. The new one is very plain.
I played with it using a photo of my Yellow Dog.

Also another one I did.

Also, if you are adept at Gimp/Photoshop, I have used these with no text and opened them in Gimp to use other fonts.

Could construct nice labels for a given ferment.
The medlar was harvested 2016, the ferment was kept during 2017 and the mass was distilled in 2018.
Found the pictures on internet, edited them and made a label.
One for the drink:

Those look great!

I didn't really like the look of that new Labelizer template.
Over on the CC forum - sue me I cross post! - :D - EziTasting had a label but discussed clearing out parts so the liquor would show through.
Here is one I played with using his:

and also messed with the Labelizer template:

That is a nice trick: transparent labels! You made these on plastic sticky film, I suppose?
Think I will try one on occassion too.

What is the CC forum?
I like other forums, because every country and/or group has its own habits and we can always learn.

Full Disclosure
Done with Gimp - Photoshop open source.
First of all, I would think it's NOT a good idea to put an oaking strip in a decanter. It would be too easy for me to forget how long it's been in there or forget to take it out and overoak. It would be safer for me to oak in the mason jar with a sticker on it.
Here's the download for Gimp:
https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

Like this "hobby", it takes a lot of practice. UNLIKE this hobby, there are a lot of LEGITIMATE youtube videos to help.
:roflmao:
Also, when we had to "paste up" proofs on posterboard, we used a slow drying spray adhesive so we could adjust it if necessary.
However, I am fairly certain it would "frost" the glass under the label.
Best thing to do it go by a crafts store and explain the project. If you can't get a suitable product there, you may have to put a clear adhesive "stock" OVER it to permanently seal.

Thanks.
I have used Gimp and I liked it, because it works with formulae in stead of pixels. (I liked DrawPerfect for that too!!)
But I seldomly use it, so I do not master it anymore. :(
I make my labels nowadays with found pictures, mixed with several fonts in Word.

Used to draw them myself, 30 years ago.
