Selecting the Right Size Bottle for Your Capsules or Pills

A picture of a variety of capsule and pill bottles

In this helpful post we answer a very common question when shopping for the perfect packaging solution. Since expanding our Nutraceutical and Pharmaceutical categories we have received inquiries similar to the following, “How many capsules will fit in this bottle?”. The answer varies depending on the size of the capsule and the capacity of the bottle you are looking at. To help we put together the following guide. The leftmost column displays the capsule size. Note the capsule count and match it to the bottle size you are shopping for.
