How to Make Custom Water Bottles


Are you tired of carrying around the same old clumsy looking water bottle of yours around with you everywhere you go? The kind of bottle you bought off the rack at your local department store or gas station? Are you tired off the odd colors and the silly labels? Then why not make your own?

They can be geared to every single activity of your life. You can customize them to the various dynamics of your routine. For instance, you can customize them to the tone and design of your new mountain bike, so that its blends in seamlessly and serves as a perfect accessory. You could accessorize it to be your trusty companion on long walks in the park; you may take it with you on your adventures on the trekking grounds; alternatively, as your sidekick on your jogs on the beach. You are only limited by your own imagination when it comes to the degree of your customization. They can match your moods, enhance your athletic gear, compliment your trainers and shoes or just speak to your own individuality.

There are many categories of custom water bottles. As follows are some of the design considerations you may need to keep in mind for creating your specific bottles;

Bikes (Small Polycarbonate Bottles): These are particularly streamlined to afford aerodynamics and convenience to the rider. They also allow for ease of use to the rider as they are often needed while on the move.

General Sports (Large Polycarbonate Bottles): These are more multi-functional and have wider applications for a variety of sports. The design here can be very functional, holding a large containment of liquid and need not be extremely portable as these bottles may not be with you all the time.

Promotional water bottles (Giveaways): These are ideal for promotional events as giveaways and gifts. This is a great way to promote your brand and create awareness for your product or service, particularly if you are in the sports goods or athletic wear industry.

Eco Friendly (Aluminum): For the more environment conscious, there are eco-friendly solutions as well. Though a slightly more expensive proposition, bottles made from aluminum are more lightweight, far more durable and eco-friendly as well.

Water Bottle Labeling:

You can easily whip up labeling and colors for you bottles on common graphic tools and programs. However, even if you do not, there are always many options in the form of ready made templates to choose from online that can easily be manipulated to suit your tastes.
