Use our free design templates to create beautiful personalized labels

Creating stunning, personalized mead labels is easy with our design templates!

We’ve added some new icons and images into some of our most popular labels to make them even better suited to mead labeling. 

Suites With New Icons & Symbols

Kombucha

This one has a new bee icon that we’ve added. With plenty of colors to choose from and a big upload image this can deliver a more contemporary looking personalized mead label that is truly personal. This design template is free to use and has lots of different sizes available to fit a wide range of bottle sizes. We found this awesome closeup photo of a honeycomb for our sample on a free public domain graphics website. 

Royal Pooch

This one also has a new bee icon we’ve added. This design only is available in the Wine Set which comes with a front and back label. With bold colors to choose from and lots of open space this is a high impact label that is sure to impress.

Apple Cider

We’ve added this lovely vintage bee image to the existing apple images you can choose from on this label. You can also replace the loaded photos with your own uploaded image. This label has several background image colors and a wide variety of sizes. The apple graphics would also work well for cyser.

Suites with that old-time worn look

Father Time

Don’t dismiss this label because it seems to be holiday themed at first glance. Replace the image, change the name and you have an instant vintage look for your custom mead label. We also found this image on a free graphics site by typing in “viking”. 

Cloister Frock

This one has several type colors to choose from in that lovely old type style. Keep the pre-loaded friar or swap out the image with your own photo.

Similar to this label is Wild Hare 

These are just a few of the free design templates available. And feel free to explore! The best part of all these design templates is that by changing the image, personalizing the text you have a creation that is all yours in a matter of minutes. Any label can be a mead label with a few tweaks!

Remember to measure your bottle and space. Use the fit guide online or downloadable fit guide to help you choose the right label to fit your bottle. You will want to apply your custom labels to smooth, clean dry bottles and avoid the slopes around the shoulders of your bottle tops. For example if you are bottling in champagne bottles you will want a horizontal label so it will fit in that wide bottom space.

Also, you can always create your own design offline and upload it into an upload your own template.
