Beer labels can be as unique and interesting as the beers themselves, with no two designs ever being alike. From funny to flirty, and everything in between, there really is no limit on the designs you can put on a beer label, and it can be a whole lot of fun when your make your own labels. Got a special occasion coming up? Consider custom beer labels to add a unique touch to the event. Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas or bachelor party, you can design your own beer labels and everyone can get to take home a keepsake that will remind them of the great time they had at your party.
Whether you are a home brewer looking for a way to personalize your bottles, or someone needing a unique gift idea, making your own beer labels is not as difficult as you might think. There are a number of great design programs available online, both free and paid, and with a little bit of time and effort you can create a one-of-a-kind label. Of course if you don’t feel that creating them yourself is something you can do you can order custom labels to be made for you.
For the do-it-yourselfer there are a few essential things you should know:
- Begin by sketching a rough draft of your design idea. It doesn’t matter if you can sketch because you will be creating the actual design on your computer. Just put the text and images roughly where you envision them being on the finished product. Decide whether you want just the large label around the bottle or whether you want to add a neck tag as well.
- Using a program such as Photoshop (paid) or Canva (free version) you can put your design together. Another way to get your labels ready for print quickly and affordably is to hire someone on the likes of Fiverr.com to design it for you. Just give them the dimensions of the label and your ideas and let them do the work for you.
- Think about the durability of the label. If you are planning on reusing the bottles as home brewers will your labels need to be strong enough to withstand the sanitization process, but if labeling bottles for a bachelor party durability may not be as much of an issue.
Have fun with the design process. Make your label unique and distinctive. Let your imagination go wild so you come up with a design that says ‘you’.
