Follow These Steps to Create a Product Label:
- Create an account so you can save your designs for free.
- Save your logo to your device for easy access. Make sure it’s 300 pixels per inch resolution and preferably a PNG file so it has a transparent background.
- Get the hex #’s for your color scheme and keep them handy.
- Start by uploading your logo using the Add Image tool. Once the logo is uploaded place it on the label and resize to your satisfaction.
- Choose a background color. Keep the contrast high between the text and background so you clearly see all your label elements.
- Add your text. Choose a font style, size, and color. Move the text around to give the label a balanced look. Remember, simplicity is best.
Some of the things you might want to include on the label are ingredients, nutritional information, dietary information, allergy warnings, content weight/measurements, serving size, and expiration dates.
