Introduce your home-brewed soda, announce an event or even advertise your business with custom soda bottle labels. Producing labels at home with a computer and printer is an easy and inexpensive option. If you are giving your soda as a gift, custom labels help personalize the bottles. When the use is more professional, custom-made soda bottle labels can introduce company information in a way that people will notice.
Things You'll Need
- Document or publishing software
- Plain paper or pre-pasted label stock
- Scissors or paper cutter
- Rubber cement or glue stick
- Label design software (optional)
Measure your soda bottle to determine your label size. Take into account any aberrations in the surface of the bottle, such as decorative bevels or dips in the glass.
Lay out your labels using a document or publishing program. Design a text box with a border or a custom shape, such as an oval or round, or lay out a strip that will go around the entire bottle with a printed front and back. Websites such as Avery.com or Winelableforyou.com offer label-making software or templates for download and purchase.
Use font effects, text graphics, images and borders to create a custom look to your label. Browse existing labels or templates for ideas. Upload your own image to use on the label or as a background or select stock images from the program you use to design your label. You can make a label that looks vintage or something modern and chic with multiple colors. Save your file before you print.
Print a test label on your printer and cut out the label if satisfied. Use scissors for a custom-shaped label, or a paper cutter for a straight-edged label for the cleanest cut. Apply glue or rubber cement if you did not use pre-pasted label paper. Rubber cement will be more permanent but harder to remove if you want to reuse the bottle. Attach the label and critique it for any changes you wish to make.
Print the remainder of your labels and apply to the bottles.
