custom water bottle label templates

We are beginning a new series of entries entitled, "Reader Questions.... Ask the Blondes". We receive so many inquiries that we thought it best to start addressing them in our blog. Keep the questions coming!

For any party or event, Kristin and I like to design water bottle labels to coordinate with our colors and overall theme. Attention to detail is important and this is one detail, in our opinion, that should not be overlooked. It's a nice touch that seems to elevate any soiree.

Lately, we have received many requests to create custom water bottle labels for our lovely readers. Our solution?: For $20, we will design a custom label that is set up to print with crop marks and emailed to you in PDF format.


Three possible design options highlighted above are 1. to include one of our copyrighted illustrations, 2. to focus on type, 3. to include a photo of the party girl (or boy).

All designs can be customized to your party color palette. Email us at info@blonde-designs.com to order.

We recommend printing the labels on regular text-weight copy paper. There will be 5 labels per sheet. Cut on the tiny black crop marks with a ruler and an Xacto knife. Remove the existing water bottle label (we often buy standard individual Arrowhead water bottles because we like the shape) and, using 1-2 pieces of double-stick tape, affix the new one. Please note that the labels will NOT be waterproof.

If you would like to waterproof the labels, after cutting them out, take a clear piece of wide mailing tape, the same length as the label, and carefully lay it on the tape. You can then affix the entire waterproofed label the same way as discussed above. Voila!

You're ideas are simple yet amazing, and I love paying attention to the details. Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to pick your talented brains!

i'm so glad your doing this, this will be a must for my next party.

I borrowed your idea for a baby shower I threw in September. You were right, they were a huge hit! People were picking them up asking if I made them, etc. I don't have a fancy computer program, but was able to make them using Microsoft Word. Here's a pic.

In the future I will definitely pay the reasonable price of $20 to have water bottle labels custom by Blonde Designs.

Those are my water bottles :) AMAZING. They were a hit at both wedding receptions :)

The custom water bottles were a big hit at my son's 5th birthday party. The only thing I did differently was that I printed the labels out directly on adhesive label stock instead of paper. This way it eliminated the extra tape of cutting and affixing double stick tape onto the paper of the paper. Thank you again for the great idea!

The small water bottles are Arrowhead. I always find them at Target. Good luck! -Angie

Such a original idea. Now i'm thinking to order such a label for my wedding. I would never thought such a thing would be possible.
