Order wine labels that are individually cut or in rolls, depending on how many you need. Our custom printing options give you exactly what you are looking for.

Choose Every Important Detail for Your Custom Wine Labels

Deliver a unique message or the lavish image of your brand with premium wine labels. PrintPlace makes it easy to customize every detail, from the label format to the size, shape, and cut of the design. Find out how to narrow down the best choices for your wine label:

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 is 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. These stay water-resistant for a limited time, at up to 4 hours when placed in an ice bucket. The textured estate materials are used on wines and other gourmet items displayed along store aisles before temporary storage in a refrigerator.

Selecting 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 flexible. 6.5” is the maximum height for labels using Bordeaux bottles.
  • Burgundy bottles, usually used for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, have gently sloping sides which give 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 manufacturers, with some having steeply curved sides. It’s best to check the actual bottle first before proceeding to print labels. We recommend the modest 4” x 4” wine labels to ensure a wrinkle-free application.
  • Rhône bottles look similar to the Burgundy but are 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.
