What Bottles Do Our Water Bottle Labels Fit?
You want to purchase water bottle labels for your wedding, birthday party or marketing your business and you are wondering what size label to buy. Here are some tips and helpful recommendations on brands that we tested.
When shopping for bottles please keep in mind that some bottle styles are different in various regions of the US. The bottles we tested were from the West coast. We recommend that you cut a piece of paper to the size of both of our labels and take them with you when shopping for bottles. If you have time before your event please request a label sample.
For reference our small water bottle label is 1 3/4" H x 8 1/4" W. Our large water bottle label is 2 1/8" H x 8 " W.
BEFORE YOU PURCHASE LABELS please check the bottles in your area against our label sizes. We cannot guarantee any sizes will fit bottles in your area. It is your responsibility to measure before you order!!!
Bottled water brands that we tested for use with our labels:
- Arrowhead 8 oz. Bottle - Our small label fits
great on this bottle height-wise but there is a small 1/2" gap in
the back. If the gap is not an issue for you then we recommend this
bottle.Our large water bottle label wraps around this bottle and
the edges butt up against each other, but the height of the label
does overlap the bottom ridge on the bottle.
- Refreshe 8 oz. Bottle - (found at Safeway
Grocers) - Our small label fits very well on this bottle with a
1/8" gap in the back.
- Dasani 12 oz. Bottle - (found nationwide) -
This bottle fits both our small and large labels, but with the
small label there is a gap of 5/8" between the ends when wrapped
around the bottle. The large label barely meets at the ends on the
Dasani 12 oz. bottle, but the small label fits the bottle better
height-wise. This bottle is a light blue color, with a green cap.
If this clashes with your colors you might want to consider another
- Dasani 16.9 oz. Bottle - Our large label fits
this bottle well, with only a 1/16" gap where the two label ends
meet.The cap on the bottle we tested is green.
- Aquafina 16.9 oz. Bottle -There are two styles
of 16.9 oz. bottles made by Aquafina that we could find. One is
their regular plastic and the other is the eco-friendly 'EcoFina'
bottle. Our large water bottle label fits perfectly on both types
of bottles. The large label overlaps on the bottle we tested by
1/2". We were pleased to find that our small label fits on the
EcoFina bottle as well. The only consideration is that with all of
the eco-friendly bottles we tested, there is a tendency for the
bottles to dent easily.
- Costco Kirkland 16.9 oz. Bottle -
Costco uses different bottling companies across the
US. Please check at your Costco first before making your
purchase.** Here in the Northwest our small and large labels both
worked on this bottle, but the large label left a 1/16" gap. The
wavy ridges on the bottle made the label gap on bottom edge The
small label left a 1/2" gap in the back.
- Refreshe 16.9 oz. Bottle (found at Safeway
Grocers) - Our large label fits on these bottles, but there is a
1/4" overlap. An overlap is good for the label material to stick,
but if your design is close to the edges be careful. Just watch
that you don't put important words or images too close to the edge
of the label.
- Nestle 9 oz. and 16.9 oz. Bottle - Most of the
Nestle bottles we found had very narrow labels; 1 3/8", but long in
length. The bottle is a shaped bottle which made the bottom of the
label apply unevenly. If you are careful with how you apply the
labels on the 16.9 oz. bottle, the gap in the back is very tiny.
The main problem was the height of the label panel on this
Bottles that we do not recommend for use with our labels:
- Crystal Geyser 16.9 oz. Bottle -The label area
on this bottle is only 1.5" high x 8.062" wide. This is a full 1/2"
shorter in height than our small label, but the same width as our
large label. Although we could put the large label on this bottle,
the thin, easily dented plastic and multiple ribs did not accept
the label very well.
- Arrowhead 16.9 oz. & 20 oz. Bottle - The
label areas for both of these bottle sizes are extremely narrow,
less than 2" high. The bottles are eco-friendly, but they dent
- Poland Springs 16.9 oz. Bottle - The label
area for this bottle is very narrow height-wise which doesn't work
with our label sizes.
- Many of the new eco-friendly bottles have a curved surface that
make it difficult for applying labels
