What size does everyone usually make their labels? I realize as long as they fit on the bottle, it should be fine, but what is the general acceptable size to make it look good?
In px if possible?

...generally about 3" x 4" works just fine; but what I would suggest is to look at a commercial beer label you like and measure it. As you can see around here, the sky's the limit.

Eight to a page, about 2 7/8 x4. I had mine full color lazer printed, they don't run in water.
So far, I've had more experience thinking than I've had don't think they are mutually exclusive, do you?

72 batches so far,
48 wine, mostly Loquat, peach, plum, prickly pear
23 beers and ciders
1 sauerkraut
1 Tequila, from a prickly pear wine experiment that didn't work. I call it "Prickly Heat"
