Custom beverage labels provide many benefits for businesses in this competitive industry. Some of the top advantages of using customized labels include:

  • Noting important information: Custom labels allow you to inform buyers of ingredients and allergen warnings, letting them know if your beverage contains anything they shouldn't consume.
  • Standing out from the crowd: Unique label designs can help your product stand out among the sea of other beverages sold in stores or online. When everyone else looks the same, you can be different and unique.
  • Aligning with your brand: Customizing your labels lets you design something that meets your brand specifications by incorporating colors, font styles and graphics that align with your image.

Types of Beverage Labels

Find customizable beverage labels in several varieties at Red Oak Label. Common types and their applications include:

Pressure-Sensitive Beverage Labels

These are some of the most versatile label types available, meaning they will work on almost any product. The primary material in pressure-sensitive labels is either film, paper or foil, and they are compatible with several different types of ink. They do not need activation through water, heat or solvent, requiring only a light or moderate pressure for addition to a container.

Some of the most common beverage applications for pressure-sensitive labels include:

  • Wine bottles
  • Spirits
  • Beer bottles or cans
  • Specialty beverages

Glue-Applied Beverage Labels

Custom glue-applied beverage labels are another viable option for drink manufacturers. This type of label is not naturally adhesive — you must first apply glue to the label or the beverage container, then unite the two to make the label adhere. This style is preferable for application on bottles.

Hang Tags and Keg Collars

Custom tags are a cost-effective way to quickly add your label to a beverage container such as a keg or wine bottle. These nonsticky labels slip over bottlenecks and keg couplers easily to label your product. Whether you want to display your logo, an ingredients list or a sale advertisement, these labels will help you do it.

Laser Sheet Labels

Laser sheet labels closely resemble other pressure-sensitive labels. However, these are ideal for high-quality printing from home or office printers. They work well for beverage and ingredient labels on bottles or other drink containers.

Direct Thermal Labels

For direct thermal labels, you need a specialized printer to produce your desired image on the sheet. However, these printers are an economical choice because they do not require ink, ribbon or toner. They also print continuously on large rolls of pressure-sensitive sheets to produce labels quickly.

Direct thermal printers can only produce black prints, so they're often used for printing barcodes, shipping labels and other tools for tracking inventory and product movement.
