Branded bottled water – All you need to know in 2019

We all have been exposed or used branded water in the past. Below are the top 6 things you need to consider when ordering your water for your next event, corporate function, wedding or party.

1. Are you getting Tap (Prepared water) or Mineral water?

Prepared water bottle companies are popping up all over the show. They are taking normal tap water and running it through filtration or Reverse Osmosis systems and then bottling it. These processes usually strip the water of the minerals your body needs. Read more.
Mineral water on the other hand is just that… Mineral, out the ground and filtered to ensure that you are getting the highest quality minerals.

2. Are the bottles BPA free ? 

BPAstands for bisphenol ABPAis an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages. This has been linked to cancer.

3. Are you getting a FULL color label print? 

Or do you have to pay extra for every colour? There should be NO limitations on design on vinyl waterproof labels. As for direct printing you normally will have a choice of white, grey or black. this is to ensure that your branding stands out.

4. Are you paying for setup cost? 

If they charging you for vinyl setup, you are being ripped off. If however you are doing a direct print, and you order less than 3000 bottles… you will be charged. Keep this in mind

5. What about label design? 

Bear in mind that you need to have a label professionally designed. This will cost around R195 once off and you can request the designer to send  you the final PDF for future use.

6. Are you collecting the water or having it delivered? 

Water = Weight. The smaller the order,  the less you will pay, the larger the order, the higher the transport costs. Additionally verify this cost prior to delivery.


Don’t pay more than R6.00 a bottle.
