Absolutely wonderful! She worked with me via e-mail (the same day I put in the order) to personalize the design and color scheme to match my wants. The labels look wonderful.

A new wedding label design in the LifeInspires gallery. 'Just Wed Red'
LifeInspires gift photo wine labels has a new Engagement label, 'Nearly Wed Red' with an Art Deco look. Change the tyoeface for a different look.
From the original design... a celebration for 'Moving', altered to instead honor a beloved showdog who had recently died. A very unique gift wine label!

About

We who are creative are soooo blessed!

I had started out in the work force as a computer programmer. But something else tugged at me, and I was very fortunate to be able to go back to school in my early 30s, to follow what had always been my heart's desire - art. My focus became graphic design. The school was California College of Arts & Crafts (now known as California College of the Arts). Now here I am, some(!) years later, retired and happily continuing along my creative path. I will always need and love this, as it's in my core.

I created my first gift wine label for a friend's 60th birthday in 2009. Then I created my website, LifeInspires.com, and opened my ETSY shop. At this time I was newly retired and contemplating this next phase of my life. I knew I wanted to pursue those things I'm passionate about and inspired by, which include (but of course are not limited to): art, traveling, gardening, digital photography, the outdoors. This ongoing mission has been very rewarding, and I feel blessed. I believe that finding and pursuing one's inspiration and passion – in and for life – is important.

Shop policies

Last updated on July 14, 2016
I welcome your feedback and suggestions. Perhaps there's a design you'd like to see. If you have a need, it's likely that others may too. I am continuously updating my 'gallery' of designs. Please check in now and then!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I accept PayPal at this time.

With custom work such as these labels, the policy is that work begins after notice of payment is received. A first proof is sent to you after this order processing is complete.
Shipping
Shipping (U.S.) will be USPS First Class with tracking ($3.00). This is usually delivery on the 3rd or 4th day, though that is NOT GUARANTEED; once in a rare while it has taken 6 days. Delivery to Canada is longer.

If your time frame is tight, you might consider requesting USPS Priority Express Mail ($22.95), which is NEXT DAY delivery* - IF I have it to the post office before 10:00am Mountain Time (where I am in AZ).
*NOTE - Be aware that, in some locations (within the U.S.) Priority Express Mail - instead of Next Day - will be be 2nd-day delivery (for example, Monday to post office, Wednesday to you). I am told it depends on your town's distance from the post office! IF YOU MUST HAVE NEXT DAY DELIVERY - please contact me first, as I will need to ask the post office the time required for delivery to your town!

Most important is - communicate with me from the start as to your needs, time wise.

Once you've let me know your desired turnaround time frame, I'll work to accommodate as best I can. Usually I have a first proof to you with 24 hours of your order's confirmation/payment.

TO BE SAFE, it's always wise to place your order allowing extra time for the transit of your labels! You'll want to have time to spare before the actual date of your special occasion! Delays and lost packages in the hands of the postal service are beyond my control. But know that I will do my best to ensure your satisfaction in the receipt of my product.

At this time I will be accepting orders within the U.S. and Canada only.
Refunds and Exchanges
I will be happy to answer questions you may have regarding my product and service. Personalized wine labels are a custom item, designed and printed to order, therefore once work has been initiated on your label (after your payment) I will be unable to issue refunds. Be assured, however, that you will have ample opportunity to discuss revisions if needed. I will be working closely with you in sending several proofs until you are satisfied with the result, and will not print labels without your final approval.
Additional policies and FAQs
1) OTHER LABEL SIZES
Let me know if you have a need for a non-standard label size, perhaps half-bottles or magnum-size. Of the latter ('large format' bottles), there are up to 8 sizes that I'm aware of, all considered 'magnum'! So we'll need to discuss which bottle you'll be purchasing and I will take it from there. There will be a one-time $10 fee for revising the design to a new label size. Include this info in your initial email to me.

2) FEE FOR NEW DESIGNS AND MAJOR REVAMPS OF EXISTING
With any label design you choose, I am happy to revise the color and the verbiage, sometimes the typeface. Sometimes your photo will require a different format or frame - for example a horizontal rectangular shape works better than the original design's vertical oval photo frame. Beyond fairly straightforward modifications such as these, if you need a major design overhaul or new design altogether, there is a one-time design fee of $25 (added to the overall cost of your labels). Please discuss your needs with me before you place your order and I will let you know whether your needs fall within standard minor modifications requiring no added fee.

3) COLORS
Please be aware that colors as viewed on computer monitors vary and may also vary slightly from colors in final printed art.

4) PROOF APPROVAL
[ Note that a first proof will be sent after customer has completed order payment processing. ]

It is the customer's responsibility to proof for accuracy. Final printing is only with your approval of the digital proof. We will have communicated back & forth and new proofs sent as needed until a final proof is approved.

5) PHOTOS
Resolution required for printed photos is 300dpi. (Photos taken with cell phones often are too low resolution. Some newer phones are adequate, however. Ask a techie about your settings). Contact me if you are unsure of the resolution. DO NOT attach photos via Etsy. This does not work for adequate resolution for printing. Send to: cgraysgallery [!at] gmail.com

By submitting a photo to me, you confirm that you are the original photographer or hold written authorization from the photographer and/or copyright owner. I will not be held responsible for copyright liability issues.

6) LABEL STOCK & APPLICATION OF LABELS
Label stock is peel and stick, glossy photo finish, and 'weatherproof'' (ie, okay in frig but not to be immersed in an ice bucket).
In your package (or via email, if you prefer) I will include instructions for removal of the old labels and application of the new.
