Creating a custom label is a creative way to personalise and showcase a bottle of wine. Whether you want to design a wine label for a wedding, holiday party or corporate event, or you plan to sell your product, you can choose from a variety of companies that allow you to design wine bottle labels online. After choosing a service, you can get creative with your design by uploading personal photographs, logos or custom artwork.

Go to the My Own Labels website and highlight the "wine/drink" option, which is located in the "shop by category" list. Select the "wine labels" option. A list of pre-made templates will appear on the page. You will also notice options for wine label colours, sizes and shapes.

Experiment with different colours for your wine label by clicking on the colour buttons at the top of the page. The template styles will change depending on the colour you select.

Click on the "see sizes & shapes" link and select one of the available options, such as "square labels," "large oval text labels" or "diamond labels." The size and shape you choose will also affect the number of templates that are made available.

Select your preferred template by clicking on the thumbnail image. If you would like to create a design from scratch, click on the "Custom" option. After selecting a template, the project screen will appear.

Determine the information you would like to include on your label, such as the name and type of the wine. Enter your text in the available fields and click on the "Update Text" button to preview your design.
