High-Quality Wine Labels That Make a Statement

Good wine deserves well-made wine bottle labels. Professionally crafted custom wine labels make your bottles stand out from the shelves and keep your brand front and center with all the necessary details in place. Choose from a wide variety of moisture-resistant adhesive materials for added elegance and ensure your wine labels last longer. Order custom wine labels that are individually cut or in rolls, depending on how many you need.

Finding the Right Materials

The materials used for our wine labels are customized to your requirements. Cut-to-size labels use different materials with roll ones. Consider the amount, material, and finish of your labels before proceeding to print.

Cut-to-size are individually cut and typically printed in low quantities, making them ideal for micro-wineries. White sticker paper is a popular choice but keep in mind that while it withstands refrigeration, it is not waterproof. If prolonged exposure to moisture is needed, opt for white vinyl.

Roll labels are better for bigger numbers. Sticking on hundreds of wine bottles are made easy with the use of a label dispenser. For labels that pop and grab attention, consider using BOPP. It’s durable, waterproof, and oil-resistant. White ink can be used on clear and silver metallic BOPP to achieve a die-cut look without the added cost. For traditional wine labels, you can’t go wrong with our textured materials, available in cream laid, white laid, and white vellum.

Choosing the Right Shape and Size

Different kinds of wine call for different kinds of bottles. These are some of the most common types of bottles and the corresponding wine labels best suited for them.

  • Alsace or Mosel bottles are slender and slopes on the side. These are commonly used with sweet dessert wines like Riesling. We recommend going with 3.5" x 4" or 4" x 4" labels.
  • Bordeaux is the most commonly used wine bottle. Popularly used with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Sauvignon Blanc, this bottle’s shape gives your design more flexibility. 6.5” is the maximum height for labels using Bordeaux bottles.
  • Burgundy bottles, usually used for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, have gentle sloping sides which gives you smaller room for wine labels. For burgundy, the maximum height is 4.5”. Best to use labels in size 3.5" x 4" or 4" x 4" for this type of bottle.
  • Champagne bottles differ between manufactures, with some having steeply curved sides. It’s best to check the actual bottle first before proceeding to printing labels. We recommend the modest 4” x 4” wine labels to ensure a wrinkle-free application.
  • Rhône bottles look similar to the Burgundy but is slightly more angular. You’ll find this bottle typically used for Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah wines. Our 3.5" x 4" or 4" x 4" sizes for wine labels fit perfectly for this bottle shape.
