Tis the season for labeling all sorts of stuff: from holiday party invitations to party bottles and glasses to Thanksgiving and Christmas family dinner dishes to all those nicely wrapped gifts and “thank you” notes.
Traditionally, we would simply buy already printed stickers, gift tags and other pre-designed labels we need. But what if you want your holiday wine bottles, beer glasses, gifts, thank you notes, invitations and signature family dishes to be labeled with a totally original, personalized design that speaks about and to you, your team at work or your family? The only solution here is to get your stickers custom designed.

For the purpose of this tutorial, let’s assume that you want to label your New Year’s party champagne bottles with festive labels. In line with that, choose to create Wine label. This takes you directly to the tool’s interface.
The first step in the design process is to choose the first label element from the sidebar:
Shape. There are 14 different wine shapes to choose from, so pick the one you like the most.
Now you can start with customizing your design using other already pre-design label elements. You can add a border, select color for your background or pick some of the pre-designed schemes. Then go through the graphics and select one or several, and add some text. Note that it is possible to move, resize, or rotate any graphic, image or text that you’ve added to your design.
You can create absolutely unique and fully personalized sticker by uploading any image from your PC. For example, you may want to label your party champagne bottles with a photo of your family or coworkers.
