Perhaps not the first guess for an Oktoberfest beer label but we chose this oval beer label design template for its flexibility. This template allows a photo upload and has several colors available to select. To get our look we uploaded a group photo of friends, changed the background color to classic Oktoberfest blue, and updated the name and fields which gave us a completely new look.

This is a classic beer label design template that also has an image you can swap out with your own. The original features an illustration of old men sharing a beer.

Other Great Designs to Consider

Feel free to explore! These are just a few of the free design templates available. The best part of 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 Oktoberfest label with a few clicks!

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. If labeling in old fashioned swing tops or growlers avoid labeling the ridged or textured part of the glass.

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