These are slick and work to add your own labels that you print cut and add to your bottles. I tried hot water but you need a deep pan, so then I used a hair dryer set on high. That worked fast but leaves a lot of air bubbles and wrinkles. But it dose the job and very easy to remove to change them out for the next batch.
There's definitely a learning curve with using these heat-shrink sleeves. The water temperature needs to be right around boiling, the speed with which you dip affects how fast and how much the upper edge shrinks down the bottle, hopefully not lower than your paper label beneath. I found that even the ones that looked right and shrank tightly may still allow water to leak under the sleeve thereby getting the paper label wet and perhaps cause the ink to run (like if you throw the bottle in a cooler with ice water.) It is possible to make them look fairly good, but the plastic wrap does add something odd to the look of a labeled beer bottle. Of course, the magic is in the fact you cut them off and easily, cleanly remove the label below. That's worth at least trying them to see if they're right for you.
Just like the name. It makes labeling fast and easy
They are easy to apply I would recommend to any one
These function as described. I am not overly fond of the finished product. The shiny plastic over the label is a bit hokey. Does not make a bottle you will be pro as to display, but gets the job done.
