How To Apply Labels By Hand
So, you've ordered custom labels from us and now you're wondering how to apply them. We have a lot of practice with labeling bottles and think this is the easiest way to apply labels on bottles.
- Place the bottle on a surface that will not allow it to roll, with the top of the bottle pointing at 12 o'clock away from your body. We recommend using your lap, with your knees holding the bottle securely.
- Slip one fingernail under the corner of the label or under the label seam at the arrows and peel away the protective backing.
- Grasp the label lightly on both ends and align horizontally with the label area on the bottle. Press the label on the bottle at the CENTER of the label and smooth from the center of the label away to one side, and then from the center of the label away to the other side.
- Smooth all the edges down and you have applied your label correctly!
With every custom label order at Bottle Your Brand we do our best to include one or two extra labels for you to practice your labeling technique. Applying your own custom label to wine, beer, and bottled water is easy, and can be fun if you enlist friends and family to come help!
