How to Print Homemade Water Bottle Labels


Water bottles are a convenient favor for parties, weddings and carnivals. Whether the event is outdoors or indoors, a water bottle giveaway will help your guests quench their thirst. You can order customized water bottles from promotional outlets, buying the bottles in bulk. If you are working within a strict budget, you may choose to print your own water bottle labels at home.

Things You'll Need

  • Large mailing labels
  • Inkjet printer
  • Word processor
  • Warm water
  • Cotton swab
  • Window cleaner
  • Purchase large mailing labels from your local office supply store. The labels you choose should be 2 inches by 4 inches. Choose white or colored labels, but keep in mind that design options are more abundant with white labels.

  • Remove the labels from the water bottles you would like to use with window cleaner or warm water and a cotton swab. Ensure there is a bottle for each invited guest. Surplus bottles can be used as decor at your event or office.

  • Click "File," then "Tools" in your word processor. Select the "Envelopes & Mailings" option and click "Mailings" from the sub-menu. A window will appear with options to enter the type of mailing label you are using. Enter the template number for your mailing labels.

  • Design your water bottle label with the information you want the recipients to see. If you are designing labels for a business, remember your company logo and contact information. If the water bottles will be used for a special event, create a more personal message such as the name of the event, date and a funny quote. As the mailing labels will be too short to wrap around the entire bottle, center your text on the mailing label.

  • Print your labels and adhere two mailing labels to each bottle so that the short edges of each label touch one another on the bottle.

Tips & Warnings

  • Center the graphics on your water bottle label so that they don't get cut off by the overlapping edges of the water bottle label.
  • Remove water bottle labels in a well ventilated area to avoid inhaling fumes.
