Before you can start the wine label application, you have to pick out what wine bottle you want to use. Maybe a great holiday red or a sweet and tangy white. From Chardonnay and Chablis, to Pinot Noir and Malbec, there are many fabulous wines to choose from.

2. Create and print wine labels

You can use our label maker to make personalized wine labels. It's easy to use and you don't have to worry about printing, cutting, or sizing. You can buy sheets of labels or you can choose from our wide selections of wines and we will ship the bottle to you with the label already applied! If you choose to do all these steps at home yourself you can design your labels using Microsoft Word or PrintShop, by hand, or through a local printing service. Have them printed on adhesive labels or paper with gum material for ease of use.

Now that you have your wine selected and labels printed…

3. Remove the label from your wine bottle

Get some OxyClean or baking soda and place it in your sink (stop it up first), filling it to about half with warm water and one scoop of OxyClean or 10 tablespoos of baking soda. Agitate the water, put the wine bottle into the sink, and let that sit for 45 minutes.

Once the bottle has soaked for the needed time, pull it out and gently remove the label. If it doesn’t come off right away, let the bottle soak a bit more. Use a sponge to remove any excess label or adhesive and thoroughly wash your bottle to remove cleaning solution.

4. Add your label to the bottle

Now that you have your new label, and a clean bottle, you have to get it on the bottle. A good trick is to lay the bottle horizontally, flat between your legs. This way the bottle won’t move around and you have your hands free to peel the wine label and apply it to the bottle.

Peel away the wine label and apply it to the front of the bottle, making sure to rub out any creases or imperfections. Apply any extra pressure to the label that is needed. And, voilà, you have your own custom-designed wine!
