"How do I find the right label size" is a question we get asked pretty regularly. Whether it's difficulty measuring rounded bottles or too many label sizes to choose from, we know it's a challenging hurdle to buying labels.
To help solve this widespread problem, we developed the following free printable label tools. They're sure to help you get the right measurements for labels that fit.
Simply click on the files below to open them in a new window. Click the download button and open them in Adobe Acrobat Reader. Then, print them on standard printer paper and grab your scissors!
Be sure to check your printer settings to ensure your documents print correctly. In the printer dialog box that opens after clicking print, look under "Page Scaling," and select "Actual Size" or "None." Next, confirm that "Auto-Rotate and Center" is unchecked.
Our printable ruler is 10 inches in length to fit on a standard 8.5" x 11" piece of paper. Because it's flexible, it can bend and wrap to match any shape container.
That's it! Select the label configuration that's best for your product, and you're well on your way.
If you know what shape you're looking for but can't narrow down the right size, use the label size guides below. We've compiled the most popular sizes for each shape and put them into these handy documents.
We love our printable ruler not only because it bends, but also because it converts the numbers to decimals for you. But if you're using a bendaable ruler already, here's how to convert the notches or fractions to decimals so you can determine the best label size for your project.
Measurements taken with these tools must be treated as estimates only. Because of the nature of paper, the documents may expand or shrink during and after the printing process.
