hmckay (responding to comment below) - There are a wide variety of standard label size that you can purchase. Buying the right size will save time on trimming down the labels. The company I work for is constantly adding new recommended wine bottle sizes. You can check out the most popular wine bottle label sizes at

The only problem I had was that 7" was a little too tall for most of my bottles. I just trimmed off 1/2" from the top and bottom of the labels after they were printed. Easy fix!

There is a template available at: If you buy the labels online (the company used at the above link was really great), you can download a word template and design your own labels. I'm making a "Mr. and Mrs." one for the sweetheart table.
