Affix Label

After all labels are individually printed and cut, you are now ready to affix the label to the bottle. Be sure the outside of the bottle is clean and dry. A glue stick or milk can be used to affix labels. Glue Stick: Rub glue stick on back of labels, particularly being sure the corners are thoroughly covered. Be sure not to place too much glue on the label. Place label on bottle as quickly as possible. Gently rub label on bottle with thumb or dry paper towel being sure it is firmly affixed to bottle. Milk: Place about ¼ cup of milk in a small bowl or saucer plate.

There are a couple of different ways to apply the milk to the back of the label:

i) dip your fingers or a small paper towel into the bowl and wet the back of the label.
ii) grab label by a corner and gently pass the back through the plate wetting the labels. or spill a ‘dollar’ size amount of milk on a counter top and gently drag the back of the label through the milk.
iv) soak a sponge or paper towel in milk and rub on back of label. Then gently rub the face of the label so it is adhering to the bottle properly. With your thumbs or dry paper towel, gently smooth the label to the bottle so there are no air pockets. Do not saturate label but get it sufficiently wet so that it will stick to the bottle. Let label fully dry. This will keep the label affixed for several months. Refrigeration does not affect the label.

Cutting Labels

When your labels print, there will be multiple ones on each page. They are auto-sized adjusted for the size bottle you have chosen. They are evenly spaced and aligned so that cutting them is quick and easy. Use scissors that are as long as you can find for cutting. If possible, use a cutting table with a swing arm.

Printer/Paper

Use any laser jet printer or similar. If you don’t have a printer at home, use your friend’s, or your University’s, or take it to the office. As a last resort, you always have FedEx Office or UPS Store. The paper stock can be virtually any weight paper. The heavier the paper the better, to an extent. Standard everyday 20-pound paper works great. We recommend white but if you feel creative, colored sheets can be used. The label graphics design was intended for white paper stock.

Printer page scaling settings should be 'Actual Size' or 'None'.  Do not select Fit-To-Page or any of the other scaling settings.  Go to File --> Print --> Page Handling.
