Are You Ready to Party?? has everything you need to make your very own wine! We offer in-house classes that will walk you through the process step by step, or if you already know what you're doing, you can purchase all the necessary supplies here and make your own batches at home. We have juice kits, buckets, sanitizers, and tons of other accessories to get you started. We can even print custom labels for your bottles. Call us at 207-873-4944 to see when the next scheduled class is or get a group of friends together to schedule dates that work for the group.
They say most of us eat and drink with our eyes, which is why dressing up the bottle the way you like it should encourage you to like the wine even more. The wine label is the part of the process that you the customer can be the most creative with, we always have pre-made labels for every batch but if you wish to personalize it we more than welcome it. We receive all the label backgrounds blank and waiting for your personal input. Below are the labels that we currently offer.
Please be aware that the software shows more labels than we carry at the store. The labels/stickers that we currently carry can be seen below. If you create a design on a sticker/label that we do not carry, we will not be able to print it for you. Please also note that while all labels can be customized with text and clip art, our label printer is only capable of printing black and white (not gray scale). All clip art used must be converted to black and white only.
Scroll to the bottom of this page to get started designing your very own labels, or if you would like a one-on-one design session with Ryan, just give us a call to setup a time. Our current price for labels is .50/label.
You can design the label you want by downloading our FREE design software, saving the label and e-mailing it to the store to print. That way when you are ready to bottle your wine, all you need to do is come by and pick up your labels. It's that simple.
Please click on the link to start the software download Lasting Impressions Designer or if you are having difficulty clicking on the link, copy and paste this URL into your browser. http://www.macdayupdates.ca/downloads/corpsetup/setupdesigner.exe OR if your antivirus prevents opening .exe files, use http://www.macdayupdates.ca/downloads/corpsetup/designer.zip
Please note that the software is only PC compatible at this time.
Open the program and click your way through the prompts until the program opens.
Click Create Label and choose the label background.
Design your personalized printing using the icons and Help menu to take advantage of the many fun software features. You can use any font you like but note, thin swirly fonts do not print well in small point size. Photos do NOT print properly with these labels. Black and white clip art images do print well from .bmp or .jpg file formats from the Lasting Impressions catalogue or from your own file location. (NOTE: .jpg clip art images show on the design screen with a white background but become transparent when labels are printed.)
Save your label by clicking on the Save As icon in the top tool bar. Please name them using your last name, date and the label number (ie. Smith 09152011 MD72C, Jones 03312011 MD28, etc.)
To reopen your label for further editing, click on Open Label and select your label.
Print - When you are satisfied with your label and want to send it to us for printing, you will find your saved template in My Documents/MacDay Label Systems/Customers folder. Simply attach this file to an e-mail and send it to us at email@example.com. Please include in the e-mail, your name, the number of labels you would like printed, when you need them for, and a contact number in case we need to get in touch with you for any reason. You can also save your file to a memory stick and bring it into the store as well. Whichever is easier for you.
