Do-It-Yourself Water Bottle Labels

Water bottle labels are the perfect favor for parties, weddings, baby showers, and more. They're also excellent for promoting your business in the office or at trade shows. They add a lasting impression that your guests or clients will remember.

Save money by printing your own water bottle labels, compared to ordering your labels custom printed. Our water bottle labels are available in a variety of high-quality materials and are compatible with standard laser and inkjet printers.

What are the most popular water bottle label sizes?

Wrap-around labels are used most often for water bottles but you can use just about any label that fits your bottle. Make sure to measure your bottle first, just in case. Our 8" x 2" label is the most versatile label for water bottles. It can fit on most 8 oz, 12 oz, and 16.9 oz water bottles.

What label material is recommended for water bottle labels?

We recommend our line of waterproof label materials for water bottles. Whether your bottles are submerged in a cooler or condensating in the heat, these label materials will hold up to the challenge.

Can clear labels be used for water bottle labels?

Yes. OnlineLabels.com offers a few clear label materials that can be used on water bottles. As with all clear labels, the design and colors are most important. Make sure you use strong, dark colors that will stand out without white ink.

What's the best way to apply a water bottle label to a water bottle?

  • Place the bottle on a surface that will prevent it from rolling. We've found that placing it in your lap and using your knees to hold the bottle securely works well.
  • Carefully peel the corner of the label away from the protective backing.
  • Grasp the label lightly on both ends and align to the label area on the bottle.
  • Press the center of the label onto the bottle and smooth out to one side. Return to the center and repeat for the remaining side. This will help center your bottle label, make sure it sits straight, and reduce the chance of creasing.
  • Smooth all the edges down lightly to eliminate any air pockets.

Should you remove the existing water bottle label before you add the printed one?

Yes. Make sure to remove the old water bottle label wrapper before applying the new one. If not, the old label may show through the new one after applying.

Once printed and applied, can the labels and bottles be submerged in water? Will the ink smear or rub off?

As long as our waterproof materials are used with the correct printer settings, the ink will not smear or smudge while submerged in water.

How to Make Your Own Water Bottle Labels

Follow these five steps to design and print custom water bottle labels:

  • Measure your water bottle using our printable ruler. Write down the dimensions for both height and diameter.
  • Choose your water bottle label size. Word of advice: If you're creating a full-wrap label, add an extra 1/4" to the length so that the ends overlap. This promotes a long-lasting hold and looks more professional.
  • Pick your material wisely. If you're labeling water, there's probably a good chance your bottle will end up in the fridge or a cooler. If you want your label to stand up to condensation, we recommend our line of waterproof label materials. They're designed to resist water and keep your design looking great.
  • Put your imagination to work with a blank label template or start with a pre-designed label template. Take advantage of your access to our label design software to personalize your label with a logo/picture, memorable text, and more. Visit our customer ideas gallery to see what other bottle labelers have dreamt up.
  • Learn more about printing on labels in our Label Learning Center's printing section, then hit print and apply your labels.
