All of that hard work that went into brewing your beer should be reflected by the label that captures consumer interest. With an artistic touch and label printer, you’ve got all the ingredients you need to make it happen.

What to Consider When Designing a Beer Labels

When considering what kind of label to use for your beer bottle, you will have to consider a few things. The design (color, size, font), the equipment needed to make it, and the costs are by far the most important. Make sure to follow regulations and look for multiple label suppliers. LabelBasic is a great place to start as we offer multiple options at affordable rates.

When it comes to the design of your labels, it helps if you already have a preset brand image. If you do, it may help spark some brand recognition. Remember to keep in mind that you may also need to put the nutritional facts on the label. If you don’t you can create one using the many online tools available, or ask a professional to help.

There is no “one size fits all” style when it comes to designing. Creating a beer label comes down to being creative, understanding your product, and figuring out how to make it appeal to those who are interested. Moreover, all of these things have to exist in harmony.

Our general advice is to seek out a professional graphic designer for this process. If you provide them with the vision of your brand and the ideal customer, they can have the perfect label design ready for you. All you’ll need to do is print it.

Outsourcing vs In-House Printing

So you’ve got the perfect label design, but how do you print it? To start, most people have their labels created through a third party manufacturer. This is the simplest way to get your labels done when starting. However, this can also lead to headaches and higher costs.

When working with a label provider, you will need to select the size, paper, and quantity of the labels you want. They will then be able to provide you with a quote and an estimate on delivery. Small businesses often opt for this when starting their production as it is one less thing to worry about.

However, the biggest drawback of outsourcing is that it takes an aspect of control away from your business. If your producer experiences any delays, setbacks, or accidents, your customers will feel the brunt of it. You are also limited with design and label choices.

The Benefits of Producing Your Own Beer Labels

Therefore, the best and most consistent way to produce labels is to own the equipment. With the help of a company like LabelBasic, you can find the best deals on labels, printers, accessories, and more. All of their products are backed by an incredibly helpful customer service team.

It’s recommended to bottle beer in amber glass whenever possible for optimum UV protection since beer ingredients are light-sensitive and affect the taste of the brew. Every beer bottle has a label area called the label panel, which is also known as the print area. It is usually the flat area of the bottle where the label is applied to the bottle.

Between the two ridges on the bottle is where the labels are typically applied. We suggest using a 4″ x 3″ label for custom designs for your beer bottles. Our labels are made with a permanent adhesive that ensures designs stick on the bottle. To get started, scroll down to see the top label printers available.
