Permanently and decoratively label bottles

The options for labeling bottles range from a personal dedication next to the label to a creative, complete design. Permanent markers and touch-up pens make it possible to embellish glass bottles with opaque or transparent surfaces. Indirect effects and fill level-dependent optical effects turn bottles into personalized pieces of jewelery.

Labeling for safety in use

Bottles are labeled for decorative or practical reasons. If there is a change in content, the label must clearly describe the current content. Inattentive and ambiguous labeling is particularly risky if, for example, beverage bottles are used as storage locations for inedible or toxic substances.

  • Also read - Decorative packaging of a bottle in foil
  • Also read - some or all of the bottles are covered with stickers

Classics such as paints, lubricants, alcohol and weed killers must be labeled in such a way that the information content cannot be lost. The removal of old bottle labels is strongly recommended. Strikethrough and overwrite can disappear due to fading and make the content unrecognizable or obscure.

Jewelry labels

Basic ideas about the design, for example when giving away a wine bottle, can be:

  • If the caption is to be applied to or in addition to labeling
  • Which glass color has the bottle and which optical effect arises
  • Replaces the labeling the labeling
  • Is information or decorative effect in the foreground
  • The caption must be faded
  • The label bottle is alleged permanently continued

Most permanent markers bleach and rub off by frequent attack. More durable are labels with acrylic paint pins, as they can also be used to paint glass bottles.

Special effects

When labeling, "indirect " effects can be used. Mirror-written text can be detipped through the inside of the bottle when the mirror of the liquid decreases.

In combination with contexts can be realized by geometric recesses level displays and "watch holes ".

Noble elegance when decorating the bottle is achieved through objective lettering on the bottom of the bottle. The body of the bottle remains free of design or is decorated in a non-representational way, for example by painting.

Tips & Tricks If you remove the information about the content of a bottle, you should always indicate the content and any filling or expiry date, even with very individual labels. If after a while nobody else knows whether the contents are still edible, the artfully decorated bottle quickly moves into the glass container.
