labeling process

These are our recommend tips and tricks for removing the existing labels on your bottles, and the process for applying your custom labels. It's really quite easy. I promise! I've even included our step by step video below to walk you through the process.

Let's get started!

SELECTING YOUR BOTTLES

BOTTLE SHAPE

The sizes we recommend based on the most common bottle shapes are:

  • 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches high

  • 4 inches by 4 inches

  • 2.5 inches by 2.5 inches

  • 4 inches wide by 6 inches high or reversed 6 inches wide by 4 inches high

EXISTING LABELS

These are our recommend tips and tricks for removing the existing labels on your bottles, and the process for applying your custom labels. It's really quite easy. We promise! We've even included our step by step video below to walk you through the process.

Let's get started!

REMOVING WINE LABELS

ONCE YOU'VE SELECTED YOUR BOTTLES, FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS TO REMOVE EXISTING LABELS.

WET a paper towel in water. Make sure you fold the towel so it is roughly the size of the label you are trying to remove.

 

SOAK the bottle for 10 to 15 minutes or until you notice the towel becoming dry. REMOVE the towel and scrape anywhere the label has started to dissolve and is easy to remove.

 

REPEAT this step one to two times depending on ease of label removal. SCRAPE off any remaining label with a butter knife, then remove any sticky residue by scrubbing with a sponge and a drop of dish soap.

If you find that the label has especially sticky residue, I recommend using a baby wipe  or goo gone to remove any of the extra adhesive left on the bottle. DRY off your bottle and get ready to add your new label!

APPLYING YOUR LABELS

Before you begin, make sure your hands and the bottle are clean and dry. Labels may lose their adhesive if exposed to moisture or grease from your hands.

 

REMOVE the backing while carefully avoiding the adhesive of your label. Position your label square over the bottle and starting at one side, slowly begin to rub the label on. Going from left to right, begin smoothing out the label from top to bottom as you roll the bottle, making sure there are no air bubbles.
