    I know alot of brides do koozies. I decided since we're doing a cruise and not alot of our guests do bottled beer or can type beverages, we're going to do sport bottles.

    These are the bottles I'm leaning towards

    I can get them printed, but it doesn't seem to have enough room for what I want. What do you girls think about using a clear sticker? Are they a pain to print on? I was just thinking for after the wedding they may get more use out of the bottle if they could rip the sticker off.

    What do you girls think?

      No one has ever tried to print on clear stickers? They don't even have to be clear, any recommendations would be great!

        I saw a lady on ebay that does stickers that last through the dishwasher for like sippy cups for kids, but I guess you don't really care if they last?

        I printed on white labels for a project for work and it was very simple.

        I found a set of labels on avery.com and they have templates as well. Not sure if they have clear, but it is worth a look. Good luck!

          For my older sister's wedding, we printed on clear labels for candle holders, and it wasn't too bad. It was an actual picture that we used taken with a digital camera, so it didn't turn out TOO great, but with just writing and probably some clipart, it would look much better :) Didn't rub off on your hands, but then again, candles don't sweat like bottles We used Staples brand labels and they were pretty painless. I'd say just pick up a small pack and try it, you won't know for sure until you try

            I used clear shipping size labels to print info on for my invitations. I stuck them to the back of beachy postcards so I didn't have to print on the actual cards. I printed with colored ink on them and they came out great. I got the labels at Staples. I would try it. I would measure the flat surface on the bottle where you are going to stick it first. They sell those clear labels in several sizes.

              Thanks! You girls are the best! I was just worried about if the ink would actually dry or rub off.

                It definitely didn't smudge on mine. I rubbed my finger over the whole thing when I stuck them to my postcards and I didn't wait long after they printed to do it.

                    I love clear shipping labels from Avery. I don't love my printer %&$*@ eating them! I used them for my tears of joy tissue packets, return address labels for the postcards, and my memory candles.

                    BTW, I love my new all-in-one HP printer!
