4 Suitable Materials for Water Bottle Labels

Labels | November 9 2021

Water bottles are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and materials, each with their own distinct appearance and qualities. In addition to water, these bottles hold a variety of juices, carbonated beverages, and other fluids. While the composition of the bottle is undoubtedly important for any packaged fluid product, the label applied to the package is arguably the most crucial element. A well-designed label can be the difference between your product standing out on a shelf or blending in with the rest. In addition to design and text, it is important to choose the right material for this label. As leading providers of food and beverage labels, the team at West Coast Labels knows how difficult it can be to choose the right material. That is why we have compiled a list of 4 suitable materials for water bottle labels to help you make the right choice for your needs.

4 Popular Water Bottle Label Materials

The following materials are a popular and effective choice for most bottled products:

1. Clear/Transparent

Clear/transparent labels create a unique look that catches the eye of most consumers. A film-like material is typically used to create a 3D effect that allows for a clear view of the bottle’s contents. Transparent labels are hard to tear in comparison to regular paper labels and are highly resistant to bubbling and condensation. Clear labels are slightly more expensive than regular paper labels due to these benefits.

2. Glossy White

Most popular packaged bottle brands in the market use glossy labels. The glossiness of these labels can uplift the overall look and feel of the product, making any item look like a premium offering. Semi-glossy paper and white glossy paper are the two most popular types of these labels. The former material is quite popular owing to their luster as well as print quality. The white glossy material is also good, but it may require an additional laminate to protect the ink from smearing.

3. Polyethylene

If your water bottles will be exposed to cold, heat, or moisture, polyethylene may be the best choice for your needs. Labels constructed from this material maintain their integrity in nearly any condition, keeping a colourful and clean appearance over time.

4. Foil

Shiny metallic foil labels have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their ability to make water bottles stand out in the crowd. The labels can be printed on foil film or metalized silver paper, giving a unique aesthetic to any product. If desired, a clear laminate or UV coating may be added to protect the integrity of labels.
