How to make Nuka-Cola labels by Whatpayne How to make Nuka-Cola labels by Whatpayne
Here's a small tutorial to anyone who want's to know how to create the Nuka-Cola labels, I have produced.

-À la Fallout-

This is somewhat more detailed than that small one I've added to my other Deviations. It's pretty straightforward, as you can see.

Bonus: To fullfill your Nuka-Cola experience, take a look at this tutorial:[link] It tells you how to do the Nuka Caps, as well as Buffout, and Med-X.

One quick question: Does the glue hold up after they're cold? I'm trying to think up away that I could make these with root beer bottles, and still serve the root beer inside them without the labels just getting wet with condensation and peeling off. Any thoughts?

Sorry if you've already found an answer and for the fact that I'm not the original creator- my guess would be to find a way to print it on something like photopaper.

I ended up triple coating both sides with Modge-podge, and it held up alright for a while, but as soon as they were in the fridge more than a day, they started to get damp and peel off. My search for a waterproof, flexible sealer begins!

I had to modify the image PPI to 158.625 so that it would print the correct size.

Problem: I have a painted one. Its not the paint, but the printing part. Do I just print one of your deviant art label parts, cut out that bit, and slap it on with some glue?

Sorry, can't help much as I don't have experience with the painted ones. You'll have to experiment and see what works the best. I'd imagine that gluing a label on top of the painted one should work, as long as you don't shine too much light through it...

That's not my problem, my problem is printing out the perfect size of a label so I can glue it on. Its always too big, or bad.

Okay, here's a way I did it back in the day. First cut out from a plain paper a template that's about the size (and shape) of the label, height being the important measurement. Then open the image into a program that has option to print certain paper size, eg Word. Open the picture in the program, make sure the zoom is at 100%, meaning 1/1 scale with real life paper. Resize the picture to correct size matching your template you cut, and print. Word is good as it does not loose information if you downscale the image (which is what should happen. If you upscale, you're doing something wrong).

There are multiple things affecting the printing quality. Everything from printer settings to image software. Make sure the options in the printer menu quality settings are set to best possible. (I used word as a example as it's fairly common and pretty easy to use. You can print with, say, Photoshop. But you have to play around with all the color and dpi settings which frankly are quite complicated. Unfortunately there is no easy way to print out pictures with just a simple click and have perfect results.)

You have to import the image into a blank word document and then resize. You can't open image file straight into word like that.

The problem with printed labels is not removing it, the problem is guessing the size of it, 'cause when it's paper like the Mexican ones, it's easy to remove and get the size, but guessing the size on a printed model is a pain, maybe you have a trick? I used the american 8oz and can't fit your design on it even after several try and modification.

The only glass bottles in my area are Mexican Coca Cola, and the labels are painted directly on the glass.

I tried going a full circle around the bottle with the label you provided, but it doesn't make a perfect fit. The top sticks out and then the label rips off easily, making trips to cons and stuff like that difficult.

Any suggestions on how to remove the painted label? Or better yet, how to make a label that can encircle an angled bottle?

Scratch it off with the outer edge of some scissors.
It will take about half an hour but you can remove it all and it won't affect the glass.

A neat trick about cutting these for the perfect edge. Add a line around the label thin red, barely noticeable. Then around that add a line this time thick of the same texture with the red label. What this does is help you have red edges regardless of how you cut. (no white borders) Awesome labels FTW

The "swirl" bottle type?

If I'm correct here, the label is printed on the glass, right? Then there is no other way than to stick the curved label on top of that, to hide it underneath. Or you could also try to scratch off the label print carefully with an edge of the knife...

What size bottle are you using? All I can find are the 8 oz bottles, and they have the 'labels' printed directly onto the glass, so its really difficult size matching the nuka cola labels correctly.

I'm using 0.35 liter bottles, which would be equal to 12 oz I think... I'm sorry I cant help much. Even where I live those bottles are quite rare and wanted items.

It's a little bit off-topic, but I have to ask: how did you make the background of your instruction pic? Do you have a template for this "manual" design, or did you create it by yourself?
It looks great...any chance to release it to the public, in a "plain" form? :D

Anyway, thanks for the instructions!

Hey, sry. for a bit late reply... I used this [link] texture as the "dirty paper" backround. And rest is original content, eg the borders logos etc.

Hope this helps. ;)

...well I don't... I have been thinking different ways, but I have nothing absolute solution currently. If the Coca-Cola text turns out as an problem, then I'll just paint the whole cap red.
