I've only just gotten started brewing at home, but I've started to produce beers that I'm happy to share beyond my closest friends and parents. If I'm going to be giving bottles of beer to other folks, it doesn't make sense to explain my cap labeling scheme, it seems far easier and more fun to make and stick on labels. I was kind of hoping to find a service (at staples perhaps) where I can send them an image to get printed on a sticker or something of that nature (saves my ink cartridges). Was curious what other folks do.
Thanks for your input!

They have a number of free ones, but can pay for some of the non free ones (like $10 for a lifetime membership). Can add your parameters for the beer, some labels you can add a picture to, and the colors can be manipulated. Download as a jpg.
While they are intended for bottle labels, I don't bother as that means I have to take the labels back off for the next batch, but do use them as a picture for the beer on Untappd. What I do label is the cap, as I have a Brother Label Printer, and the 24mm round labels are perfect. I can add the brewery name and bottling date around the outside edge, and then the name in the middle.
Some of the labels I have made for place holders on Untappd.
