I was actually researching this the other day on here and I came across an interesting idea someone used.  They bought plain sheet Avery Labels (about $35 for 100 sheets at Staples) and "laminted"/"waterproofed" them by using clear packing tape. If you cut the tape the exact size you need it may not be noticeable at all. Could that work for you at all?

I dont have a link, it was just a random comment someone posted to a board a really long time ago.  I have no idea how I stumbled upon it.  I dont think it would be too hard to cut the tape the right size, for instance if you made you paper the same thickness as the tape and then just had to cut it the right length to go around the bottle, it would only be one cut.  And yup you prolly could use regular paper!

I got clear Avery labels and printed them on my cheap laser printer works like a charm. I had several trials, I used the inkjet printer first that washs off and the laser printer works best. The labels don’t come off because they are address labels supposed to be water proof.

Yes they are the clear address labels, they look so much better in person. I have a couple of  sheets if you want I can mail you one so you can make a trial before you buy 100 labels.

After going back and forth about buying waterproof paper, I ended up going with Hammerill Color Gloss paper ($10 for 300 sheets).  It’s more similar to what real water bottle labels are made out of.  I then printed my labels on a laser printer, and cut them with one of those scrapbook-paper-cutters.

My wedding is coming up, so I haven’t completly tested them, but I did a test run by immersing one of the bottles in ice water, and while it was slightly wrinkled, the ink did NOT bleed – it still looked good and when it dried it looked fine!
