Wine Bottle Label Guide
Applying wine bottle labels to wine or champagne bottles are the perfect way to customize the bottles.

SELECTING THE RIGHT BOTTLE FOR OUR LABELS
The best type of bottle is smooth with a long body that is the same width from top to bottom with tall shoulders. Avoid any bottles that have odd shapes or odd textures.
REMOVING THE ORIGINAL BOTTLE LABEL
We recommend that you remove the existing label on your bottle before placing the new label on. Do not place the labels over the existing labels. If you place the label over the existing label, the label is going to show through your new label and it also will not go on smoothly.
To remove the existing labels:
- Fill a large pot of water or your sink with cool water.
- Dissolve about a 1/2 cup of baking soda in the water.
- Submerge the bottle in the water for 30 minutes.
- After about 30 minutes, the existing label should slide off.
- If there is any adhesive on the bottle from the label after it's removed, we use peanut butter to rub off the adhesive then rinse the bottle off.
- Dry the bottle.
APPLYING BOTTLE LABELS
Before you apply your labels, make sure that the bottle and your hands are clean and dry. Any moisture on your hands or the bottle, can cause the labels to loose adhesive and they may not stick as well.
Start by placing the middle of the label down, then smooth out each side by pressing firmly from the middle out. This will ensure that the label is placed without any bubbles.
PRINTABLE LABEL TEMPLATE
We've made an easy to print template for our wine bottle and champagne bottle labels. Printing out the template is the best way to check to see if a particular label will fit your bottle. To print the template, just download it here, print it out, cut out the size label that you will be using, and hold it onto your bottle to see if it will fit.
