Botl Basics: Bottles

Bottles are the little bottle-shaped icons that images, music and video are packaged in to create a “digital message in a bottle,” which we call a “botl.”

Standard Bottles

48 bottle types  864 x 360There are 48 standard bottles to choose from when making a botl. You’ll find them in our botl maker, which we call the botlr.

Default Bottle

Selecting a Default Bottle

If there is a standard bottle that you use for most or all of your botls, you can select it as your default. Simply go into your profile settings and click the Bottle tab. Scroll to the desired bottle and click. (It will be highlighted in an orange square.) Then click the blue save button.

When you open the botlr, your default bottle will be preselected.  If you would like to use a bottle other than the preselected one, simply scroll through the bottles to find the one you want and click it.

Brown-Bag Bottle
Whenever you check the NSFW/Adult Content box inside the botlr, we will automatically add an nsfw tag (“not safe for work”) and assign the brown-bag bottle to carry your message.
