5 Things To Know When You Order Custom Water Labels

Businesses typically order custom water labels to help advertise their products and services. But, they can also be found at corporate outings, fundraisers, sporting events and school functions.

If your business or organization is interested in custom water bottle labels, there are some key things to know before placing an order. Because of this, our team at Total Beverage Services has gathered five tips to ensure you have the best experience possible!

1. Label Size

Many people think there’s only one standard size of a water bottle, but that’s not actually the case. The most common water bottle sizes are 8 ounces, 12 ounces and 16.9 ounces. But here at Total Beverage Services, we also offer bottles in 16 ounces, 18 ounces and 20 ounces.

You also have to account that the bottle shapes themselves may vary. For example, we have a 16-ounce bullet water bottle and a 16-ounce standard bottle to choose from. We also carry bottle-necked.

2. Label Materials

Hiring a professional to custom label your bottles is different then DIY-ing the process with a home printer. You’ll most likely need labels that are waterproof not just water resistant, so they can be placed in a fridge or tub of ice. You’ll also want to opt for labels that are synthetic or coated for a polished look.

Keep in mind, we offer our services in commercial grade printing and our labels are made from materials that’ll stand up to humidity and water.

3. Label Colors

When you order custom water labels from Total Beverage Services, your labels are printed in full color. If you need us to design your label, let us know! You also have the option of designing them on your own. Keep in mind, we can’t guarantee the colors on your screen will match the colors on the label.

This is because screens use Red Green Blue (RGB) while printers use Cyan Magenta Yellow Key (CMYK) and the Pantone Matching System (PMS). To ensure your label is the most accurate color as possible, we recommend learning the codes for all three. Here’s a great article that will help with this process.

4. File Formats

If you order custom water labels and choose to design them yourself, be sure to upload it as a JPG, TIF or PNG file. Sometimes, PDF and EPS will suffice, but keep in mind that most printers don’t accept Word or PowerPoint files. Also, all fonts must be converted to outlines.

For more information on artwork and label specs, give our team a call and we’ll discuss the specific details of your project.

5. Processing

Once you’ve submitted your label artwork, we’ll format it to the final printing press size and send you an email with the final proof. Please allow a 2-3 week production time after the approval of the artwork.
