How to create custom wine labels for any occasion
First things first. You will want to label your wine bottles appropriately for your special event or product display.
Custom orders for wedding wine labels are common. Or perhaps you are bottling your own wine and looking to wrap your beverages in a custom branded look. Either way, it's time to get creative.
You will want your wine bottle label design to complement the type of wine you are labeling and its occasion or event. For example, if creating labels for a wedding gift, keep in mind that the style should be more formal than say party-themed drinkware for a dinner with friends.
Your choice of label design can speak to the type of wine itself. For example, if you are creating labels for a red Merlot, keep in mind that deep red is typically associated with this kind of wine.
You will also want your custom label designs to be consistent with other items being used as wedding favors or decorations...etc. Create labels that represent the newlyweds to make a wonderful keepsake.
Where can I get my wine bottle labels designed?
If you already have your wine bottle label designs approved and ready for print, you can head to Step 2. If not, do not fear. You're just one step away from a finished product.
In order to get your wine bottle labels designed, you will need a graphic designer. In the old days, this would have been an arduous task - involving hiring an in-house or freelance designer and waiting for them to complete their work...etc. But not anymore!
With so many free online design tools, creating custom label designs is as easy as selecting a template and adding what you want from there. To include exact colors, backgrounds, and more! We tend to recommend Canva.com, for ease of use.
Canva has a pre-designed bottle label templates that are fully customizable. Plus, you can save your final file in multiple formats. Vector files are now included and that is an ideal file format for print because it keeps your design sharp no matter the sizing that takes place during print projects.
Either way, you can upload your files easily on our website and we will always send a proof so you can see what your printed project will look like before production begins! This takes us to Step 2.
