Make Your Own Custom Wedding Labels
Weddings are expensive and most of us have to keep our spending in line. If you happen to be a bride on a budget or have a friend getting married then be sure to share this great tutorial on how to make custom wedding labels. Custom printed labels are great for labeling wedding favors, water bottles, wine bottles and can even be used as custom napkin wrappers.
Labels used in this post:
- Brown Kraft OL475BK (4 x 5 inch label)
- Brown Kraft OL7000BK (7 x 2 inch label)
- Brown Kraft OL350BK ( 2 1/2 inch round label)
- Brown Kraft OL5030BK ( 3.375 by 2.3125 inch label)
You can choose any label size and material that you would like for your wedding. Online Labels has a huge variety of labels in every shape, size, and color. Choose the labels you love, order them, and get them delivered to your door. Next step is on the same screen where you order there is a “download blank templates” tab.
Click that tab to see the options for blank label templates. The first in the list is the Maestro Label Designer that you get free access to with your Online Labels order. You can also see that there is a Microsoft Word Template available. I used the word template for my design because I am more familiar with it. However the label designer is also very user friendly.
Click on the template of your choice and a download screen will appear. Click “download/launch” when you choice is highlighted above.
Once the template is open in Word you can see the outline of the label and you can add text and graphics of your choice. Pick fonts, colors, and sizes that you love. I also added in some standard drawing shapes that are part of the Word program. You can also insert pictures if desired. Move everything around until it looks perfect to you then BE SURE to delete the boxes that are around each label. These WILL PRINT if not deleted.
You can see my collection of designed labels below. I used a dark grey for the printing and loved the results.
The heart and arrow are just drawn in Microsoft Word and the font was standard on my computer. So simple and elegant.
The large 4 x 5 labels are perfect for wine bottles or on rustic centerpieces as shown below.
You can use the round labels or small rectangles for closing envelopes on invitations, save the date cards, or thank you cards.
The 2 1/2 inch round label fits perfectly on a standard size mason jar lid. This makes it the perfect label for mason jar wedding favors.
The 7 x 2 inch labels are perfect for wrapping water bottles. Measure the existing water bottle label and order one a little larger so everything gets covered up.
The small rectangles can also be made into amazing customized napkin rings. Just use paper cardstock cut to the width and length needed for a napkin ring. Wrap around your napkin and add the label to the front to hold everything together. Custom napkin rings in just seconds.
It is so easy to print these custom labels and make your wedding ceremony shine. Plus it will save tons of money versus buying them already printed. Grab a computer, some labels from Online Labels, and get started today. Print custom wedding labels from your home computer in just minutes.
