Beer & Wine Bottle Labels - Canning Jar Labels

A Professional homebrewed label should be the final ingredient in any homebrew recipe.    Do Not label your favorite homebrew with masking tape.  Make your own personal homebrewed label from scratch for just pennies.

A DIY Beer Label, Wine Label, or homemade Canning Jar Label, tells a lot about the maker and/or the contents.
  • The proper custom wine label will relay the impression that the wine is suitable for special occasions.
  • A humorous beer label states; “This is a party beer to be shared with a group of friends.”
  • A homemade canning jar label with an image of the contents says; “I Grew this and Canned it Myself with Love.”
Here is the beauty of this label making process:
  • Each batch can have its own label and personality.
  • Multiple yet individual labels.  For example you could setup your word processor to print 10 labels per page and print a unique bottle number on each label (6 of 20).
  • The base label material can be any color or texture you printer can handle.
  • Cut your homebrewed label to any shape or use specialty scissors for a decorative border.
  • Use photos, artwork, birthday or greeting cards as labels.
  • Hand or machine stitch cloth labels for special gift bottles.

The perfect homebrewed label(s) should relay two messages to the recipient.
  • The bottle contents, maker, year, storage requirements, expiration dates, etc.  That information found on that piece of masking tape on the bottle and the info in your head.
  • Facts of interest concerning this unique bottle, e.g. grapes from your garden or hops imported form Germany or brewed for the 2008 Milwaukee Brewer’s Festival.
I prefer the two label approach.  The first label passes along all the necessary information allowing full artistic license for the second label.

The whole process of making a homebrewed label is very similar to the other label projects on this site.  Refer to How to Make Stickers for the label making basics.

Here are a few differences.
When making a long label for a curved surface; use several pieces of carpet tape parallel to the curve to avoid buckling.
Remember to experiment first on an old bottle and unwanted or blank label material.

Positioning a label “squarely” on a curved surface may prove to be challenging. For a detailed discussion on how that is done, to go our Bottle Labeling Jig Page,  How to position a Label on a Bottle.

Teachers, don’t forget about our school ID stickers project.  This idea just might be the answer to your lost homework problems. Please tell your fellow teachers about HOW TO MAKE CUSTOM STICKERS AND LABELS, 
They also may benefit from the School ID Stickers project tutorial. Computer stickers are not the only labeling method. Art teachers can employ these methods to build handcrafted stickers for ID purposes.

Although the emphasis of HOW TO MAKE CUSTOM STICKERS AND LABELS is making computer generated professional stickers, the methods and techniques are the same for homemade stickers and handcrafted stickers.

I have made thousands of custom stickers, and I feel these Do It Yourself instructions will help you get a good start on your own DIY custom stickers. A homemade professional sticker is easier than you think. Be sure to visit all pages, to get all the Sticker Making Tips, to make your custom computer stickers project a fun experience.
