Things you need
- Label paper
- Color printer
- Paper cutter or scissors
Buy some preprinted labels if you don't want to start from scratch. You can always embellish them with your own designs later.
Brush up on your artistic abilities. Use a pen, markers, charcoal or drawing pencils to create your own design for your wine labels. This is obviously the most time consuming way to create your own labels, but it will make for the most unique designs.
Design your label on the computer, if you don't want to draw it yourself. You can buy special software, use "clip art" images or download images from the Internet. Just make sure that any imagery from the Internet is not copyright protected.
Print your labels on label paper, which you can find at any office supply store.
Cut your labels apart with scissors, or to make the edges as even as possible, use a paper cutter.
Adhere the label to your wine bottle and you'll be finished.
Tips and warnings
- If you are computer savvy, draw a design on one label, scan it and then copy and paste it into your label template, on your computer. That way, your unique design is on each label, but you only have to draw it once.
- Another way to get a unique image for your label is to take a digital picture, upload it to your computer and then copy and paste it into your label template.
