How do you bundle personalised wine bottles with love? It begins with choosing a personalised wine label that stands out among mountains of gifts. The best part is sharing your quirky and creative side to carve a special place in the heart.

Some people say the way to a heart is through the stomach, but wine lovers say that the way to a wine lover’s heart is through exquisite wine in personalised wine bottles with memorable wine labels.

5 creative ways to personalise your wine labels

5 creative ways to personalise your wine labels

How can you make a personalised wine bottle stand out among a mountain of gifts on a special occasion? Get your creative juice flowing while experimenting with eye-catching personalised wine labels that represent the unique personality of your recipient.

1. Know the sense of style of the receiver.

You can never go wrong if you are familiar with the sense of style of the receiver. A keen observation is all you need to create a personalised wine label that fits the personality to a tee! Here are four popular styles of personalised wine labels:

Personalised wine labels that evoke history and tradition

Is your drinker a sophisticated baby boomer? The older and wiser generation likes to play with tradition. Your baby boomer would love to own a personalised wine bottle wrapped with a wine label that evokes nostalgia or a vintage feeling.

  • Personalised wine labels using abstract art and design: Abstract art and design sit well with the suave Gen X. The colour palettes depicting grapes, for example, leaves more room to the imagination and need no flowery texts to catch attention.
  • Personalised wine labels that border on minimalism: Is your drinker a carefree millennial who loves clean, fun and excitement? Choose a minimal design and reduced text that fits his personality.
  • Personalised wine labels with modern trends or funny and cocky design: Gen Zs would appreciate personalised wine labels with modern trends and funny designs. A cheeky one-liner, funny emoticon, or sketch will tickle their funny bones.

2. Design your wine label.

Personalised wine bottles with some features like an embossed wine label, stamped foil, high-end graphics, or fancy font look expensive regardless of the actual price. A striking personalised wine label is a feast to the eyes of the beholder. Experiment with designs that suit your taste and preference!

  • Get creative with the shapes!: Break the monotony from the usual square or rectangular-shaped wine labels. Instead, cut out irregular shape wine labels that give a distinctive look from a distance. How does a favourite quote that is printed on an oblong shape wine label appeal to you? The modern trend in a minimalist wine label is minimal graphics, text, and reduced label shape.
  • Play with bold colours!: Wines have standard bottle colours. The reds are in dark green to keep out sunlight, while white wines are in clear or pale green bottles. You may select contrast colours for a bold effect or monochromatic colours to soothe the senses.

    Striking colours such as gold or crimson red labels against a black backdrop appear attractive. Ocean blue or deep green label against clean background looks crisp and clean. Envision a Merlot wine bottle wrapped with a personalised wine label in bloody red for a dramatic effect.

    You may also mix and match the favourite colours of the receiver. These are some creative ways to personalise wine labels for a stunning effect.
  • Typography: Bold typography sounds basic and yet demands undivided attention. Use a big, bold font with plenty of white spaces to catch attention. A striking wine label on a red wine needs a deep contrast to the design. Use Sans serif faces if you would like to evoke a contemporary feel and script type for a traditional font.

3. Pick a theme for your wine label.

A special occasion calls for a celebration. So, whether you are designing a wine label for a wedding, a debut, or a grand reunion, the best way to start is to pick a theme.

  • Classic – The classic wine label is synonymous with traditional, elegant, and regal.
  • Modern – A modern theme plays with simple lines and designs that border on minimalism.
  • Fun and Quirky – A fun and quirky wine label use handwritten texts and funny sketches.
  • Old Timey – Old-timey design uses vintage artisan techniques.

4. Foil stamping

Foil is an excellent material that glints in the light and draws attention to it. A pretty wine bottle stamped with foil in copper or gold is the hallmark of a distinctive personalised wine label.

5. Maximise your creativity in wine label design!

There are endless possibilities for great personalised wine label design if you stretch your imagination:

  • A personalised wine label stamped with a company logo and colourful motif makes a great corporate gift. It is also prudent to add a picture of your corporate building.
  • You may create your imaginary wine brand with a wacky logo and eye-catching design.
  • A personalised wine label bearing the photographs and love notes of the newlyweds.
