This listing is for ink jet water bottle label sheets ONLY. The water bottle label design that is compatible with these sheets can be purchased here- http:\/\/www.etsy.com\/view_listing.php?listing_id=22926104

These water bottle labels are awesome, you can actually run them under water, in fact it's recommended you do so to rinse off any excess ink that may have not been locked into to the special water resistant barrier.

Each self adhesive inkjet sheet contains 5 labels in a white satin like finish. They are compatible with our printable personalized water bottle label designs. They make for an easy application and will keep your label from bleeding when they get wet. They are made from a durable vinyl material with permanent adhesive. The material is weatherproof and the ink from a standard inkjet printer will encapsulate into a specially formulated top coating upon printing.

We think they look best on the smooth Archer Farms brand water bottles availale at Target, however they will work on any standard water bottle.

*Please note that these labels are water resistant- not waterproof. Please read tips below for the best results when printing your labels.

HOW THEY WORK:

These water-resistant vinyl label sheets manufactured for an inkjet printer are top-coated with a substance that "locks in the ink". Therefore, it is important to achieve a balanced ratio between the amount of ink used and top coating available for locking. If too much ink is used, not enough top coating is available to lock it down, you will see some bleeding when in contact with water. There are 3 things that can be done to solve this issue, leaving you with a truly water resistant label:

*ADJUST YOUR PRINTER SETTINGS:
Most printers have advanced printer settings you can adjust for the different media types you might put through the printer. When you hit print, find the "paper type" or "media type" box and select premium paper (or experiment with the many media settings for best results)
You can also turn down your ink volume- too much ink can cause bleeding to occur. When you hit “print”, select the advanced features (you may have to look under different tabs to find this, it's different on every printer), under the “advanced settings”, you should be able to turn down your ink volume resulting is a better-quality waterproof label. Printing with low resolution may be an option on your printer.

*RINSING:
If you are printing heavy graphics, rinsing of your waterproof label sheet might be required. Print as usual and let the ink set for several minutes. Then, simply rinse sheet under cold water to wash away any "unlocked" ink that is sitting above the top coating - this will leave you with a perfectly bleed-free and waterproof label sheet.

*SEALING:
Though we have never found this necessary, you can add an extra layer of protection if you are concerned that your bottles will be exposed excessive amounts of moisture such as being stored directly in ice. You can add your own top coating, which will step up the level of water resistance. We recommend Krylon's preserve spray on top coating in matte finish (available at your local craft store). It will leave a chemical smell, however, if you leave your waterproof labels sit in open air for 48 hours, the chemical smell will begin to dissipate.

If you are ordering less then 5 sheets, you will not be charged more then $3. Orders of 5 sheets and under will ship USPS First Class. If you are ordering a large quantity of labels, your shipping costs will not exceed $5, as we will ship them USPS Priority Flat rate.
