Looking for generic beer can props...

Anyone know where I can buy them?

I'm just looking for a bunch of cans that say "beer".

Thanks
Eric

Do it yourself.

Measure a can for dimensions, go into Paint Shop Pro or PhotoShop or what ever imaging software you own, design a fake label to your own appeal, print it on adhesive-backed paper, cut it down to size and stick it on. Should pass for the real thing in just about any type of shot unless you're doing an extreme close-up of the can.

Reminds me of one of my favorite movies from the '80's, Repo Man. In the convenience store where Otto gets fired, the shelves are filled with cans labeled "Food."
