5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for bottle labels, June 21, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Avery Shipping Labels for Laser Printers with TrueBlock Technology, 3.333 x 4 Inches, White, Box of 600 (5164) (Office Product)
I use these as labels for bottles. It is the perfect size for labeling 12.7 ounce bottles. The positive points are:

1 - They do not jam, bend or otherwise get messed up during the printing cycle.
2 - They peel easily from the sheet, but stick VERY firmly to glass.
3 - They are thick enough so that they can be applied to bottles smoothly with no wrinkles. This is a HUGE advantage over some other types of labels we have tried.
4 - The 5264 template is built in to most major software packages. Setting up the labels for printing was a breeze.

The negatives are: Haven't found any yet!

One reviewer mentioned that he had problems removing labels once they were applied to bottles. First, that's generally a good thing. The last thing I would want to happen is to have the labels just slide off after getting wet or being subjected to temperature changes. However I tried removing labels for the first time last week and didn't really find it all that hard. What I did was rinse the bottles with hot running water for a couple of minutes. I then places the bottles in a boiling water bath for 5 minutes. The labels peeled right off for the most part. In a couple of cases there was a bit of adhesive left on bottles, but that rubbed off easily enough while the bottle was still hot.

My wife actually then used a bit of an environmentally friendly degreaser on a bottle that was not boiled, and that seemed to remove the adhesive easily enough as well.

I highly recommend this product.
