If you will send me three full bottles, I will tell you how.


*********
Seriously, you will need to have a word processor capable of producing labels, a printer that will print them and handle gummed labels, as well as the actual paper.
Welcome to BC!
Cheers,

Hmmmm, not sure about printing wine bottle lables.......the wine in my house doesn't stay in the bottle long enough for me to worry about lables, as long as it's red thats all that matters .....lol

There are quite a few lable printing software packages around,
"Kodak - lable maker" comes to mind as one.

Just google lable printing software. I'm sure you'll find lots.

:thumbsup: to BC anyway sandalwood

Welcome, sandlewood


I used Excel to make CD labels.
You can use the spreadsheet
like a pattern to make borders.
Add various type and imbed
photos. Print on paper stock
and spray the back of the plain
paper with adhesive.

The nice thing is the colors, fonts,
and faces of type available is a lot.

You can vary the size of the
individual cells (rows & columns)
by very small increments.
The type, background color(s),
borders & lines are interchangeable
easily so editing is fast & predictable.

I can send you some sample files
if you like. PM button below my
post. Need an email address. :thumbsup:
