How To Add A Border To Your Label

Adding a border to your label design in Maestro Label Designer

Personalize your label with a colored border. There are two easy ways to add a border to your label design: using the background color tool or using the shape tool. Choose the option that's best for your label shape and design.

We strongly recommend using thicker borders in your design to reduce the visual effect of any shifting that occurs naturally during the printing process.

Using The Background Color Tool

This option is popular for ensuring your label design includes adequate bleed.

  1. Launch Maestro Label Designer and sign in.

  2. With a label template open, hover over the "View" menu in the header and click the color swatch beside "Background Color." Make a color selection.

  3. Using the "Shapes" menu in the vertical toolbar to the left of your screen, select the same shape as your label and add it to your canvas.

  4. Use the "Align" feature in the white menu bar to center the shape on your label, then change the size of your shape so that it fits comfortably inside the label outline.

  5. Adjust the "Fill Color" to match your desired interior color, edit the "Stroke Color" as needed, and increase the "Corner Radius" value if your shape has rounded corners.

Using a Shape Outline

This option is popular for its ease of use.

  4. Adjust the "Fill Color" to "Choose No Color," change the "Stroke Color" to your desired border color, and increase the number beside "Width" so that your shape's outline is both inside and outside the border of your label.
