To add to bottle, the brewery logo is centered on the cap; the front and back will then take on the proper orientation.

I'm note bottling until sunday, so I'm hoping the FG holds true (its been stable 2 days); otherwise I need to re-do the labels.

EDIT: added advantage of this format is you can get 14 labels per sheet
I might try this type of design! It seems efficient... what's the image sizing for these? Any templates available?

I'm not at home, so I don't have the exact measurements, but the labels are somewhere between 18-20mm tall (0.7-0.78"), and nearly 8.5" wide. On a standard piece of letter paper, I can print 14 of these; leaving about a 1/2" margin around the page. I should add, these are for plastic bottles, so they may be a bit wide for a proper beer bottle.

As for a template, I do have one at home for adobe illustrator (its essentially the outlines, plus a box indicating the region where the cap will be - simply fill in, delete the guides, and print). I may be able to convert it to EPS (which most graphics programs will load); if the forum will support a file of that size, I'd be more than happy to upload it (&/or the adobe flie).

I've tried to attach my templates, but due to size limitations had to zip them. Unfortunately, the board doesn't seem to accept ZIP files (or AI, EPS or other vector-formats).

The exact dimensions of the template are 18mm x 203mm (0.7086614173236" x 7.9921259842606"). Centered on it is markers for the cap - 25mm wide for pop bottle caps.

"Slim's Own"*, an amber ale from RavenBrewWorks in Yreka, CA was made from a Home Brewer's Outpost kit, and is still in the primary fermenter, but that didn't stop me from designing and ordering labels!

*So-named for my musical alter ego, Slim Jims°hn, a mythical guitar picker who lives in Yreka, CA.

Brewed as a going-away present for a brewing buddy who's moving back up north. A "spring lizard" is southern for salamander.
