What makes a good beer label?
Your label and packaging should always match: imagery, typography, color scheme and personality. Consistency is an essential in branding, so outsiders should be able to link your packaging to your bottles/cans immediately just by a single look.
Can label dimensions?
The standard size aluminum can in the U. S. is 12 fl. ounces. This can is 2.12 inches in diameter and 4.75 inches tall. Which makes it perfect for our standard beer label which is 4 inches wide by 3.5 inches high.
How do you make a beer label in Illustrator?
While some larger breweries estimate that it can cost up to $60,000 for new label graphics (while noting that it's difficult to pinpoint costs of design versus those of production, especially for breweries with in-house design teams), smaller breweries interviewed say they commission artwork for their bottles and cans
Another iconic element of Beck's beer is the key emblem. The city symbol of Bremen is a key, which was portrayed on the Beck's bottle.
This is why you should always use Adobe Illustrator when designing labels. Adobe Illustrator allows you to create (and work with) high-quality vector imagery that won't pixelate when resized. This will ensure that your labels will turn out crystal clear when printed.
To find the correct label size: Measure the entire circumference of the labeling surface with a flexible tape measure. If a tape measure isn't handy, simply wind a piece of paper around the labeling surface and mark the spot where it overlaps; then, measure from the edge of the paper to your mark with a ruler.
Measure the bottom face of the bottle from one side to the other with a flat ruler. This is your bottle diameter. Multiply the diameter by pi (3.14), and the resulting number is your circumference. This is the width of your label.
