Custom Olive Oil Labels

The graphic designers at Renton’s Labels can also help you get the very best designs for your olive oil labels to help you sell more of your olive oil. If you need help with designing labels that will sell, then please let us know. The best piece of advice I can give you is to keep your design simple.

Your labels need to attract the attention of the shoppers whether they are browsing online, walking down a supermarket aisle or visiting a local market or store. No doubt, there will be hundreds of bottles and you may have to compete with other brands. Also, once a purchase is made you want your label to be noticed and suitable for repeat sales.

Get The Right Bottles Before Designing Your Olive Oil Labels

If you package your olive oil in bottles, then you need two things. Firstly, you need the right bottle. Glass is the most common container for olive oil but a strong plastic bottle is another option. Once, you have found a suitable bottle or multiple bottles if you sell olive oil in different volumes, then you can design your labels.

Keep in mind that if you are starting out, then your costs will be lower if you give your customers less choice. I know you want to offer your customers different options in terms of olive oil and volumes but you pay more for every different bottle you need and every different label that is needed to go on those bottles.

Since, we specialise in digital label printing at Renton’s Labels, then you can save by having most of your labels the same size. If you have different designs, then the additional printing cost is not significant if all of your labels are the same size.

Choose The Right Stock For Your Olive Oil Labels

OK, you have your bottles and you have finalised the artwork for your olive oil labels including any variations, so what is next? The staff at Renton’s Labels will take the time to provide you with the best advice with regards to the right label material.

This is relevant as spillage could potentially ruin your label. Olive oil is sticky and your label can easily be damaged if the olive oil should seep under or onto the label. A permanent paper based label will not provide enough protection. Instead, we recommend a synthetic label as its strong adhesive will ensure that your labels remain firmly attached to your olive oil bottle even if a lot of your product gets onto the label. Then you can add a gloss or matt laminate or varnish as an additional layer to the synthetic label stock. This will offer protection to both the printing and the outer surface of the label.

Will Your Olive Oil Labels Be Hand Applied Or Machine Applied?

You are likely to print short runs of your olive oil labels when you sell small quantities of your products online or in a local store or market. In these cases, most likely the labels will be hand applied. This means you will have to manually peel the label off the backing paper and place the label onto the bottle. As your operation gets larger, then you should consider buying a label application machine or even hiring a bottling company to apply your labels.

Renton’s Labels provides many bottle labels for machine application. There are a number of ways that labels can be printed that will allow your labels to be easily applied by machine to your bottles. Also, when applying your labels by machine, then a varnish is typically used as this works better with machinery. A laminate covering is used primarily for hand application of your labels.

The main points to consider are the direction of the labels and the gap between the labels. Below are some specific options.

Below is a diagram of the 8 standard ways to prepare labels for machine application. If you are unsure which roll direction you require for your labelling machine, you should check the specifications of your machinery or contact your bottling company.

Make Sure Your Olive Oil Labels Are Legal

As Renton’s Labels continues to expand, we are acquiring more capital equipment and increasing our staff but to date, we do not employ any lawyers. Hence, we are not qualified to give legal advice. What we can do is direct you to government websites for you to do your own research to ensure your olive oil labels are compliant.

Firstly, what is olive oil? Is it a food or drink or is it classified as something else? The link below from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is especially relevant.


Most importantly, the ACCC insists that you are completely honest about the quality or grading of olive oil you are selling. Here is a direct quote from the above link.

“It is illegal for olive oil suppliers to mislead or deceive consumers or make misleading claims or representations. This includes claims about the standard, grade or quality of olive oil.”

I also recommend that you consult the Food Standards Code to make sure your olive oil labels are legal.
