How to Choose the Correct Size Label

What’s the first step to finding the right label for your product? Start with the size. Whether your product is in a jar, box or bag, this measuring guide can help you find the proper fit.

To measure, you’ll need a pencil, graph paper, ruler, scissors and the product to be labeled.


STEP 1: Wrap the graph paper around your product and mark where you want the label’s edges to be.


STEP 2: Use scissors to cut the paper along the marked lines.


STEP 3: Place the cut paper around your product to check the fit. Mark and trim the paper until you get the exact fit you need.


STEP 4: Lay your paper on a flat surface and measure your final label size.
