Pop for “Pop” – Printable Coke Can sleeve

Father's Day is just around the corner.

Am I the only one who struggles to come up with gifts for men??

My husband buys exactly what he needs for himself, and he can't think of a gift idea to save his life.  And another tie? Booooooring.

One thing I do know:  My husband loves Coke.  As in Coca-Cola.

So I decided to dress up a Coke can just a bit.  I made a Coke can "sleeve" to dress up his favorite beverage for Father's Day!

I did a little measuring of a regular old Coke can.  I studied the can, and tried to make a sleeve that would be very similar.  I started by downloading a Coca-Cola font, available here.

In Photoshop, I created this image to fit the can.  My favorite part is the nutrition facts... just a few of the traits I love about my husband! And with my husband recently counting his calories, I thought he might appreciate the "calorie-free" image.

I inserted this image into a Word document and printed it out, careful not to mess with the sizes at all.  (You may have to change your page orientation and  margins to fit a 9-inch long image.)


After cutting out the sleeve, I used good ol' tape to tape it around the can.


Just a little something extra special for our "pop" to drink on Father's Day.

Would you like to print your own Coke can sleeve for the Pop in your life??

  1. Very cute idea!! I have a terrible time finding a good gift for the hubs. I might have to try this with a coke 0! :)

  2. That is so cute Alison! I tried my hand at creating some bottled water labels and cupcakes toppers for my grandfather’s 80th birthday. Oh boy. Let’s just say they look less than professional. LOL

  3. This turned out awesome! What a cute idea!

    Thanks,

    Love this idea. It would be perfect to give to all of the Dads at our church. I’ve never used this kind of document before, can you print more than one per page?

    I’m in the same boat as you with buying hubby gifts. This coke label is perfect. Too bad we just moved and our printer is still hiding somewhere in a pile of boxes. I’m a new follower. Hope to see you at http://diyhshp.blogspot.com/.
    P.S. I have a link party every Monday. I would love for you to stop by and link up your project.

  16. This is the cutest idea. Every dad should just love it! :-)

    I just made these for hubby and the dads. I think next time I’ll use photo paper as I used regular and it’s kind of dull. I just pasted the file into Word and resized for 9-inch width. It printed, and fit, perfectly!

    I also found this from Pinterest. ;-)
