Is there a story that goes with these little bottles of hot sauce? Would love to hear it.

If you are seeking advice on labeling, then I would recommend you use the label on the left. It looks more professional than the on on the right. The one on the right looks very elementary and homemade.

My first thought when I saw the label, was that it was a bottle of
Mcilhenny Hot Sauce from Louisiana. He may have a infringement problem on his hands. I admire his efforts, but he should look into even changing the shape.I believe that the Mcilhenny label is registered and copyrighted. If there is a little circle with a C in it just above the name, then he needs to make some major changes to his label if he plans to sell it. By using that shape he is going up against the biggest hot sauce maker in the world. And they do ship their product all over the world. Any store in their right mind will not put it on their shelves.

I could see the bottles with the labels as salt and pepper sets. That sure would confuse the guests. There I go again. Playing with the minds of the folks.

If you want your own hot sauce Ricky's will label it for you. They do hooters too I think.

I would like to know how did he get that plastic black ring that provides a seal, on the bottle so neatly. That seal as a rule comes up over the cap.

It's a shrink wrap, you apply with heat from a hair drier

I'm in the packaging business -
Our biggest customer, Chapstick, is a full-sleeve shrink-wrap.... that means that the safety seal and the label body are a single piece, with perfs separating the body from the safety seal............ really amazing, what it takes to get a shrink label around a product.........
