- Place the bottle on a flat surface where it will not roll or tip. Make sure the bottle is sitting straight up and the front of the bottle is facing you.
- Peel the label from the protective liner, starting at the corner and peeling slowly, diagonal across the label.
- Hold the label gently with one hand on each side og the label. Start applying the label by applying the center of the label first, then smotth the label to the corners, from the center carefully. Make sure all four side have been securly applied.
- Make sure all air pickets or bubbles have been smoothed out of the label and it is laying flat against the glass bottle.
