Wine and Glass Bottle Labels: Choosing a Suitable Media

 

Label Wine and Glass Bottles for Special Occasions  

Whether you’re a wine enthusiast looking to bottle your own blend or just wanting to create personalized glass bottle labels for a wedding or social event, you want to choose the right labelWine and glass bottle labels stock for a finished look that is just right. Though there are lots of different types of labels that might look the part, it’s important to use a label whose adhesive is meant for high surface energy products, like glass bottles.

Glass bottles are generally very smooth to the touch, which means the label adhesive has a lot of surface to cling to. Additionally, the labels often come in contact with the liquids inside the bottle, making adhesion pivotal to the labels success. Luckily, these types of challenges have bee met by producers past. Traditionally, waterproof labels are the perfect solution for labeling wine and beverage bottle and will leave you with a good looking label that will maintain their color and shape when exposed to moisture.

Waterproof Labels for Glass Bottle Labeling

Waterproof labels, also referred to as weatherproof labels, are common among wine and beverage producers. Generally, waterproof labels have a permanent adhesive which is why they can stake their resistant claim. Waterproof labels come in a variety of thicknesses and adhesive coatweights but the average bottler isn’t concerned with that. Most just want a smooth, glossy surface that will deliver bright vibrant colors once printed and won’t curl, fall off or smudge when they come in contact with moisture, ice or cold temperatures.

Now that we have narrowed down the type of label for the job let’s look at the most common finishes for glass bottles.

White Gloss BOPP Labels 

White gloss BOPP labels are perfect for printing crisp, clear graphics on wine or glass bottle labels. A go-to label media for printing custom labels that ‘POP’. The finished layer is coated to leave a shiny, smooth surface, adding a professional, finished look to the label. Perfect for intricate designs and small or individual portion bottling, gloss labels produce a superior finish.

Metallic Foil Labels

Think about the wine and specialty beverage labels you see on the grocery store shelves. The sparkly gold and silver foils that give the label a chic, sophisticated look. Foil labels are perfect for detail and add a sense of elegance. By creating artwork that has transparencies in the design, you can print directly onto the foil media with bold color and the areas that remain uncoated will showcase the unfinished foil. Metallic foil labels give an ultra-shiny, posh look to your label and are perfect to accentuate debossed or embossed label designs.
