Printable designs or blank templates for wine bottle labels are available from websites such as OnlineLabels.com, Labels on the Fly, About.com and Avery. The Avery and Planet Label websites also sell label paper for printing custom designs.
Printable labels let home brewers and small business owners apply custom branding to their wine bottles. Personalized labels are also used to give store-bought wine a decorative or themed appearance for occasions such as anniversaries, weddings, baby showers, retirement parties and promotional events. Many custom label companies also provide printing services, but working from blank templates gives users the flexibility to print the exact amount of labels needed and make small changes to the design in between batches.
Label websites provide templates in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to fit different bottle styles, such as Bordeaux or Champagne, making it easy to produce professional-quality results. The simplest designs are small, rectangular labels that fit vertically or horizontally on the front, depending on the thickness of the bottles. Wraparound labels are another option for displaying large amounts of information or incorporating oversized fonts and logos. For a decorative or high-end appearance, label websites offer ovals, circles and irregular shapes, such as arches or bottle-neck designs.
