What are the dimensions of the labels if they fit on an 8x10?
These ones in the pictures are 3.6" width x 3.25" Height.

If you look at the image of the labels on the physical bottles, you will see that If i had my labels were any larger than 3.25" on the height, they would overlap the curvy neck of the bottle and it would look funny. All bottles are different so measure your label space.

I can email you my template file. I set up each label layer with a clipping mask so you can just drop your artwork in each folder and it wont overlap any of the other labels.



or if anyone knows of any free hosting sites i can upload it to, i can use that so everyone can use it.

Google "print to PDF". If your OS doesn't already have that built in, you can install a PDF printer driver, and print to a PDF file.

How do they keep up in ice? And you can buy what I believe is called flyer paper at Staples and print yourself. It looks just as good as what Kinkos prints.

Keatz85, They hold up well in ice. Like any label, soaking in water is another thing.. but if you make sure to get the corners well and don't pick at them, they stay on.

The main reasons i use kinkos / office max is because printer ink is so expensive and they print with laser jet printers. Your typical house printer is an ink jet and the ink is VERY sensitive to water.. I imagine you would want to coat both sides of the paper with the fixative / gloss coating.

Wow very impressive looking well done indeed! Just one question though why the wax dipped bottles? I have seen this before but it seems as if it is really just about the presentation of the whole thing?

biohaz7331,
There is no other reason to do it but just pure aesthetics, for the looks. It also gives a bit of a more 'hand made' feel to it. I wouldn't do it again tough... It was nearly impossible to clean the wax off the bottles...
