This template is for the ‘open end’ Hershey’s bar which is covered first
with a foil then over wrapped with your designed wrapper. Since the company
no longer foil wraps their bars, this is an added step to give it the
original look it once had. The steps are very easy and as you make more
you will gain expertise in printing, cutting and assembly.
The cwr template file I have included has all the lines kept in to help
you visualize where the graphics and/or text would go. You can print
this out and keep by your side, or delete all the lines and write down
the numbers and Save As without the lines and graphics .
Measurements for this bar is 5.2 wide x 5.5 high.
Here is a full template screen shot with the lines.
Lay your bar flat on a table. The front/top part of your bar would need
the graphics between 9/10 to 30/31 for
centering placement and these are ruler guide marks on the left side of
your design. They are in 10th’s; so 1 is 10,
2 is 20 and so on.
Here is the front side would look if it were wrapped.
place other graphic/text or nutritional info.Here is the back/bottom side if it were wrapped.As you will notice, these lines for placement give acentered look to both sides. You can go beyond any of the placement
lines toward the edge of the bar depending on your design, just so it
looks professional and easy to read. There is no rule on this, just your
Here is an example of a nutrition info box that can be used on the
back/bottom side as an alternative idea.

Place your wrapper upside down on the table with the top end facing you,
run a gluestick across the bottom edge that will get folded over to meet
the top on the back/bottom side. If using photo glossy paper, double
sided scotch tape is recommended. Fold the top of the wrapper over the
edge of your candy bar until it meets at this 8th ruler mark.
Your addy (website, email and/or phone number can be placed anywhere you
like, but by placing it on the 8th ruler mark it makes a handy starting
point for wrapping your bar instead of guessing. Keep the font lower
than the the design text you are using, perhaps an 7 or 8.
If you sell only wrappers, this can assist your customer on
folding correctly every time. If you choose not to place your addy at
the 8th ruler mark, a soft gray or other color thin line (0.01) that is
not real noticeable works just as well to help with the starting edge
*Some members use a sticker/label to place on the inside of the wrapper
for reorder information, which again, is
optional as another idea for advertisement.
Good luck and happy wrapping!
