Peel off a label and measure it, most different brands use different sized labels. I think my bottle labels are usually like 3x4.

I don't think there is a standard. Look at all the bottle from your different beers, Most are different.

I have templates if you desire them

Photoshop format
Fireworks PNG format

6" w x 2.5" h

You may need editing software to use them, tho, the standard Word or Powerpoint is going to ask you politely "Wtf?" if you try to open them.

Anyone know if GiMP plays nice with PSD or PNG files?

I work for Adobe. Even tho I'm a non-creative, I think I can handle a .PSD

Thanks !

Color me jealous. Can ya make Dreamweaver + Fireworks less expensive while you're at it?

I only noted the file format because I've had someone try to open the PSD one in PowerPoint before. It was not pleased about that.

If I do that, my stock drops, and I can't afford to brew. You wouldn't want to take my beer money now, would you?

GIMP is free and will open, modify, and save in .psd format.
Gotta love open-source!

(Sorry lilzaphod, no offense intended.)
