    The few 500ml swing tops I have are the same size.

    In my case I have found it impossible to remove the labels/glue residue afterwards - could just be down to the particular label paper I use though.

    Ah, that's a point. The crowns obv don't have that problem. I've got some 'sticky remover' stuff that's worked well on the glue from labels, but having to properly clean the swing caps could be a pain..
    Maybe easier to label the necks with these instead for those bottles.

    Hi,

    Would anyone be able to share the excel file directly on here please, it looks ideal but i cannot download from the original site and it's not letting me join....

    With regard to attaching the label and being able to easily remove it, have you tried milk? Works for larger labels, sticks well and washes off with no residue :)

    Thank you for that, i clicked the link and made a copy that saves automatically to a cloud perhaps?! Is there a way to edit a single label that will edit all of the labels, sorry, not familiar with the inner workings of these things..

    EDIT: Yes it automatically changes all the cells, utterly brilliant, thank you!!

    Excellent! Here's an excel version, if that's any better for you than Google sheets.

    @Sambill looks like you've got it sorted now, but for your or anyone else's reference, I posted my version of this spreadsheet with some notes earlier in this thread - see here

    Thank you Matt76 too! Great stuff, i did have a look for a version of the file but must have missed it, you've both saved me a lot of time making up my own,

    Cheers!

    I'm getting on fine with the printing etc but peeling the lables from the backing was driving me daft so I've started printing on regular paper (as suggested card is better) and then a tiny dab of Pritt stick onto the cap, place the cut out on top and Bob's your uncle job done. If your not too generous with the Pritt stick removing the label from the swing top shouldn't be a problem.
    Cheers!
