ok i'm new so sorry for the noob question but what dimensions should the labels be for a 12 oz bottle?
well that all depends on the shape of the bottle. a modelo bottle and a bud bottle won't use the same shape/dimensions. it also depends on if you want the label to wrap around fully or not.http://www.onlinelabels.com/standard.htm
here are some "standard sizes"
basically...i'd pick a commercial label you like and start there...tweak as necessary.
Too many brews...too few bottles!!!
thank you sir
3.5" by 5.25" is what I use.
