Your Own Winery is pleased to offer our winemakers the option to design their MacDay custom wine bottle labels on their own computer, by installing Lasting Impressions Designer software on your computer. MacDay labels are beautiful label template designs we offer for those not wishing to use a custom photo label.
The Lasting Impressions Designer software is ONLY for designing your MacDay custom wine bottle labels – NOT for designing a custom photo label. The Lasting Impressions Designer software will ONLY run under a Windows operating system – the software cannot be installed and will NOT run on an Apple Mac.
Once you have designed your custom wine bottle label, you will save the file and email the file to us at YourOwnWinery@gmail.com. That way when you are ready to bottle your wine, your custom wine bottle labels will be waiting for you, just as you designed it.
VERY IMPORTANT: Your Own Winery carries many but not all of the MacDay label designs – so be sure to review the MacDay label designs we do offer at the link below – and select one of these designs to create your custom wine bottle label.
PLEASE NOTE: MacDay labels are printed on a special printer containing ONLY black ink, so it is not possible to add a color photo to your MacDay label even though the Lasting Impressions software allows you to do so.
The Lasting Impressions Designer application is a simple graphic design software with basic design tools, which most should be able to work with after a little practice with the software. But if you are not comfortable creating your custom wine bottle label using the Lasting Impressions Designer software – no problem, as always we’ll help you design your custom wine bottle labels.
