I make all my labels in Adobe Illustrator, that way its customized to my colour preference and design etc. Probably easier said than done but if you want you can take a look at my gallery of labels and I can alter the colors or tweak it and send to you? Might not be till this weekend though 😛

You should look under the weddingbee DIY there was a bride that posted hers to share with everyone and its gorgeous.  I had mine designed on etsy for 4 different designs for less than 20.  I did that before she posted her template. Also make sure you buy the waterproof labels.

Wow it turned out really great.  When I did mine I printed them at staples just on regular paper and then laminated them and stuck them on with wide clear tape so that they were extra waterproofed.  Enjoy!

I’m designing mine in MS Publisher, but you can use any program where you can change the page size (some that come to mind are Photoshop/Illustrator/Corel Draw if you’re hardcore, MS Paint/PowerPoint if you’re really basic).

As for printing, I’ll probably just printing them on basic paper and use one line of glue at the joining edge, just like normal water bottles; but I might use label paper. I wouldn’t laminate them, though…I don’t care THAT much if they’re waterproof or not. (As long as you use a laser printer–which all copy & print shops, i.e. Staples, Kinko’s, Office Depot, should have–the text/images won’t run, because they use toner and not ink.)

@Ayslinn87: Love the labels.  Where did you get the beach background?

Hey Sorry…I didn’t realize you had asked about the laminating.  I actually used my laminator at work because if we pay they let us use it for cheap…so I did it that way!!

I would suggest waterproof shipping label 8.5×11 sheets commonly sold at office supply stores.

I had an etsy seller design the labels, then I order the labels from http://www.onlinelabels.com.  What was great was I told the seller which ones I ordered from the website (gave website as well) and she designed them to fit on that label.  

I order the sticky labels, but not water proof, when I printed them on a laser printer the ink doesn’t run.  It worked out great!  It helped save some money on the labels.
