Every batch of beer that I bottle is capped with custom caps from bottlemark.com - I feel like they really help "brand" my bottles. I then use labels from onlinelabels.com, and print custom labels on them with a color laser printer. The result is fantasic.
Of course, the labels wouldn't be a fraction as cool if the art wasn't so good. Sadly, I have about as much artistic talent as my bottling wand does, but luckily for me, I have a great pro artist friend in Lori Krell. She took my idea (as she has done before) and really brought it to life in the label for my Oktoberfest. Check out pics of her amazing work below!
Lori is absolutely available for commission; check out her art spot at deviantart.
Incidentally, the full information for the bottles below (if you can't read the small text due to my fuzzy iPhone pics) is: (neck label) CDB, bottled 1/19/2014, 6.97% ABV. (main label) FrostFire, a winterfest lager in the Marzen style, Confederate Dragon Brewing Co.
