How do you get beer bottle labels?

Answered by Joseph Earl

To get bottle labels, there are a few different options available. One option is to purchase empty beer bottles that already have labels on them. This is a convenient option if you don't want to go through the process of removing labels yourself. However, the downside is that you may not have as much control over the design and branding of the labels.

Another option is to order custom beer bottle labels from a printing company. This allows you to have complete control over the design and branding of your labels. You can choose the size, shape, and material of the labels, as well as the artwork, logo, and text that you want to include. This is a great option if you have a specific vision for your beer packaging and want to create a cohesive and professional look.

If you prefer a more DIY approach, you can remove existing labels from beer bottles and create your own labels at home. This allows for more creativity and flexibility in the design process. To remove labels from beer bottles, you can follow a simple process that involves soaking the bottles in a solution to loosen the labels and then scrubbing off any remaining residue.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove labels from beer bottles:

1. Gather your supplies: You will need empty beer bottles, a large vessel or container, dish soap (I recommend using OxiClean), warm , and a scrub brush or sponge.

2. Soak the bottles: Place the empty beer bottles into the vessel or container. Fill the vessel with warm water and add in the dish soap according to the directions on the packaging. The dish soap helps to break down the adhesive used to attach the labels to the bottles. Allow the bottles to soak for at least 12 to 24 hours, or even longer if needed. The longer they soak, the easier it will be to remove the labels without too much scrubbing.

3. Remove the labels: After the bottles have soaked, take them out of the vessel and examine the labels. In many cases, the labels will have loosened and can be easily peeled off by hand. If there is any remaining adhesive or residue, use a scrub brush or sponge to gently scrub it off. Be careful not to scratch or damage the glass while scrubbing.

4. Rinse and dry the bottles: Once the labels and residue have been removed, rinse the bottles thoroughly with clean water to remove any soap or residue. Allow the bottles to air dry completely before applying new labels or using them for your own homebrewed beer.

By following these steps, you should be able to successfully remove labels from beer bottles and prepare them for your own custom labels or designs. It may take some time and effort, but the end result will be worth it for a personalized and professional-looking beer packaging.
