So my Dad is an avid brewer, and has always re-used old beer bottles that we drank our way through to bottle his home-brew in. However, for Christmas I made a label on photoshop with our families last name on it. It looks pretty rad I do say so myself. So I bought a case of nicer bottles with the pop top on it to put the label on...however...
I am looking for a label that I can paint/stick/adhere to the glass, so that when he wants to wash them and re-bottle, they won't fade/get moldy/wrinkle/etc. Some folks at beer stores told me this was impossible...but I was thinking if I printed a label on some good shiny label paper, and painted over it with polyurithane that it might be impervious to the aging and damaging effects of water.
Any ideas? My other idea would be to try and put some type of stenciled label like the rolling rock beer bottles, where it is almost painted onto the bottle.
Any suggestions are welcome.
