Many of you have told me that you’d like to create your own custom-label wines. So I thought I would devote a blog article to creating custom-label wines. Happily, you can create your own label in 9 easy steps.

Going to Town with Creating Custom-Label Wines
Now it’s time to have some fun. The good news is you can play all you want. You’re not committed to anything until you click SAVE or SAVE AND CLOSE at the top of the screen.
- Pick your photo. Choose your photo, using one of your own or one of ours. Use the blue box around your photo to enlarge it to fill up as much of the label as you want. If you’d like, you can use more than one photo, as I did for these two labels.
- Choose your background color. It’s fun to choose a background color. I really like the light green I used in the label above.
- Add text. Add your text by choosing the font you want and then doing a command A to capture the text on the screen and write over it. Note that you can enlarge your font, change the color, add an outline, and move the text box to a different part of the screen. Be sure not to put the text at the very edge of the screen. Because we do a full-bleed technique, anything at the very edge runs the risk of falling off.
- Add filters. For even more fun, you can use one of the filters to change the look and feel of your label. If you add a filter and decide you don’t like it, just click the X on that filter to remove it. For this label, I used the Grayscale filter.
- Add shapes and stickers. Here, you have the opportunity to add even more fun to your label. Again, play all you want, until you come up with something you truly love. You’ll see that I’ve added a shape to this label. I love the fact that I can use different color treatments for it.
I hope I’ve inspired you to create custom-label wine. If you end up creating custom-label wines for the holidays, please share a picture with me. Thanks. If you need help, please let me know.
