A bottle is an object that has been designed to contain liquid or other materials. It can be a variety of sizes and shapes and is often used to store liquids such as milk, juice or beer. It is also commonly used as a decorative item.
Creating a Custom Label for Your Bottle
A label is an important part of any business that sells bottles, jars or other items. It can make your products stand out from the competition and help you create an image for your brand. It is important to find a label that is compatible with the shape and size of your bottles.
Bottles come in many shapes and sizes, making it difficult to determine the correct size for your labels. To determine the label size, you should use a flexible tape measure to check the diameter of the bottle and the height of the area where the label will be applied.
Lid – The lid of the bottle is the top cover that seals the opening and helps prevent leaks. It can be screwed on or has a handle for easier handling. It can be made of glass, plastic or metal. A metal lid is often more durable and can be easier to clean. A plastic lid is often more expensive than a metal one and can be more prone to chipping and cracking.
Body – The main content of the bottle, lying between the shoulder and heel (insweep). It can be round or non-round, with a straight or curved bottom. It is sometimes called the base of the bottle or the bottom of the bottle, but these terms are not always synonymous.
Neck – The neck of the bottle is the part that goes up and over the head of the bottle and is generally wider than the rest of the body. It can be round or non-round, but usually it is shaped like an arc with a pointed end. It is usually engraved with a pattern or design, though some bottles are decorated without the need for any kind of mold.
Bottle morphology is the study of the physical shape and dimensional properties of bottles. It is a relatively new discipline in the history of art and engineering, and it has many facets to explore.
Some of the most well-known bottle morphologies include:
Shoulder – A curve or “shoulder” on the sides of the bottle, usually with an edge, but sometimes with no edge, that is used for catching sediment and/or to form a handle. This shape is most commonly found on bottles that are used for wine or Champagne.
The shoulders are usually very shallow and do not extend beyond the body of the bottle, though they can be a little deeper than this. They are most common on wine bottles, but can also be seen on some bottles for soda water or other beverages.
Base – The bottom of the bottle; it is usually the surface upon which the bottle sits and can be either round or non-round, but it can be any shape and may have a “resting point” that is extreme outside the bottle. It is a very important component of the bottle, as it allows the bottle to rest in a stable position when not in use.
