Creating our Little Plum labels
Designing Our Little Plum Labels
Creating and printing labels for your own homemade treats has never been easier! Packaging and displaying your products in an attractive way can lift your brand and give you a professional edge. Here we’ll show you how we designed our Little Plum labels using Avery® Design & Print Online.

Choosing a Label

To begin the process, you’ll need to choose which label fits your product best. You can look at the full range of Avery Branding Labels and select from the colours and shapes we offer. We chose a White Glossy Oval Label. It was the right size and colour for the preserve jars.

Preparing Our Logo

Using your logo and Avery Design & Print Online software means you can print as many labels as you want, whenever you need them. A graphic designer helped us design the Little Plum logo and layout for our label. This was provided as an image which can be easily inserted insert into the label template. You don’t need to have an image from a graphic designer. You can design your own, or choose one of the free pre-designed templates in Design & Print Online.

DPO Start

Designing Our Label

After choosing the label, we opened Design & Print Online and clicked Start Now

DPO Code

In the field Enter your product number here, we typed the code from our labels (L7127). Your software code will be on the box of your labels. Click Go.

DPO Designs

On the Select Design screen we chose the blank template. You can choose this, or one of the pre-designed templates. Click on Select & Customise, which will open the Customise screen.

We were creating a full page of the same label, so we ensured that the Sheet Navigator on the (right hand side) was set to Edit All.

DPO Images
To add our image to the template, we clicked on Images on the left hand menu and clicked From My Computer. If you’re adding an image, follow the same steps. Just browse for your image and click Open. We used the handles in the corners of the image to increase the size of the logo to suit the size of our label and moved it to be in the centre of our label.

Finished Labels
That’s the story of designing our Little Plum labels! We printed our labels and applied them to our jars of preserves.

When you create your labels, you’ll click on Preview & Print in the top right corner, and Print. Design & Print Online will create a PDF document of your design.)
