My brother is designing my logo and labels to go with it. Any idea what's a good size for standard labels?

really depends on the bottles. i used a few labels on here as a guide and ended up going smaller after printing some so it would fit on all the different sized bottles i have.

Mine are 3 by 4.5 and they are just a bit to tall so I will be editing them. I'd say 3 by 4 is perfect. There are tons of different sizes used though so its whatever you like.

I do still bottle some stuff. I've only got 4 taps, yaheard, and if I were forced to keg everything, I'd have to drink twice as much as I already do just to keep my production line going

3 is a pretty good height, and 4-5 is a good width. Good luck!

I think my labels are about 3.5" by 5", and they look pretty good on the bottle.
