I recently worked with a client to create some personalized printables for her daughter’s bachelorette weekend. She needed labels for mini wine bottles. What a cute idea! I was thrilled with how they turned out and am happy to now offer these in my Etsy store. I created the labels to specifically fit the Barefoot bottles; however, as you can see in the below photo these labels work just as well with the Sutter Home brand which I picked up at my local Target store.
My client, Angie, said that the ladies loved the wine bottles- they were a huge hit- and this was her response when I initially sent her the PDF files:
Tali, I LOVEEEEEEEEE the labels!! It’s almost like you read my mind on what I was thinking! Gosh girl you are good at this! You are DEF my FAVORITE etsy seller to date! :)Can’t wait to do them! Think I’ll have to go out and buy some more wine bottles just so I can label them! HA HAThank you SOOOO much for this last minute order!!
It makes me incredibly happy when I get such positive feedback.
When I create new items I like to get a test print done at my local Office Depot to check for color, size, etc. I usually print everything on 110 lb card stock (and I mean everything- invites, banners, water bottle wrappers, etc) but for the test print, the lovely bloke at Office Depot used copy paper. And guess what? The labels worked perfectly using the copy paper. I peeled the existing label off the mini wine bottles and the residual glue was enough to adhere the labels. Also, since I’d brought a blush wine, I refrigerated the bottles and the condensation didn’t spoil the labels at all. If you are not comfortable using copy paper then I’d suggest a medium weight card stock (65 lb) and you’d probably need some glue dots to help adhere the heavier paper. As always, do a test print first.
I added a cute fake barcode to the labels and the numbers represent the couple’s wedding date. In this case, they are getting married on May 3, 2014. Of course, you can opt for the date of the bachelorette party instead of the wedding date.
If you’d like mini wine bottle labels for an upcoming event but these colors don’t work for you, then you can simply purchase the custom color change fee listing in my store. Yep folks, for only $5 I will adjust the color to suit you needs on any of my printables. I have a large selection of color swatches or you can send me your color inspiration and I’ll do my best to match the shades and colors. There is always a little discrepancy with regards to color as each monitor is calibrated differently but I can usually get pretty close :)
I hope this gives you some ideas if you having a bachelorette party. I think the mini wine labels would be cute for a 21st birthday party, too.
