DO MY LABELS FIT ANY BOTTLE?
Unfortunately no. You'll want to choose a bottle where the base is perfectly symmetrical for the height of the label. If the bottle curves where the label is applied, it'll likely wrinkle around the edges. In fact, the label sizes are carefully thought of and selected to fit the most variety of bottles without causing this issue. If you are applying your label to wine, be sure to choose bottles that are perfectly symmetrical for the length of the label. If your label is 3” tall then for 3” of your bottle you’ll want it to be perfectly symmetrical. If not, it will wrinkle around the edges. Cabernet shaped bottles are best because they are typically long, symmetrical Bordeaux bottles. Merlot, Pinot Grigio, etc. are also good choices. Many Riesling and Prosecco bottles, for instance, are curvy and tricky to apply.
SHOULD I REMOVE THE ORIGINAL LABELS ON THE BOTTLE?
The old labels definitely look best removed and it’s pretty simple to do! Basically peel off as much of the label as you can and then soak for a few hours or overnight. You can then use a butter knife scraping downwards running under hot water. If there is any stubborn leftover residue you can use standard dish soap and a dish scrubber depending on how stubborn the adhesive for each particular bottle is. I've tried a lot of things and this one is the best! After you order you'll be sent a VERY thorough set of directions on how to remove the old and apply the new. It should take no more than 2-3 minutes per bottle tops after you soak. Sometimes you can place the new label over the old but because there are SO many different sizes and shapes of labels out there it may not cover it. Read a very thorough set of instructions HERE.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED FEWER LABELS THAN OFFERED ON THE SITE?
Unfortunately the labels are always cut to minimums as stated on the listing. :( Fun extras, duplicates or non-custom labels are always sent to reach the minimums.

WHAT MAKES STUDIO B LABELS DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHER COMPANIES I SEE ONLINE?
Studio B Label Co. prides itself on our attention to detail, stellar customer experience and also designer feedback. If we've made the designs look simple and cohesive--then good! We've done our job. The truth is that there is SO MUCH thought that goes in to each design and how names and info of various lengths will fit--and still look like it was meant to be there all along. Each letter, font tail and especially character spacing is thoughtfully considered so every word looks amazing on your label. Most other companies offer software in which you design your label online within its limitations, and they simply hit print. Studio B offers the same flexibility but by working directly with a designer so you don't have to be the expert. We've printed over 150k labels--each edited individually and by hand! This isn't our first rodeo and we are thrilled to work with you too.
WHAT IF I MESS UP OR FORGET SOMEONE AND NEED ONE MORE LABEL?
No worries--we got your back! Email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll let you know your options for adding on to your set or replacing your order. We save all orders for 6 months in the case of any adds or changes!
