Default Bad Apple

Here's a label for a batch of EdWort's Apfelwein that I made. I'd love to hear any thoughts or suggestions. I'm not super excited about the e's with the font I used, but I really like the font, other wise. Perhaps someone can suggest a better font?



Now I'm going to go enjoy one of these. Cheers!

Consider finding another "Old-West-y" font to use for the smaller text? I think the E in the title is fine, though.

Throw caution to the wind and use real "z"s for the hell of it...

Let the (drunk) reader try to figure it out for a while...

Here it is with a different font at the bottom. I don't like this font nearly as much, but it doesn't have those unfortunate e's. (or z's, as hb99 points out)

I also changed the color of the text at the bottom to match the title. This is something that I just overlooked with the version I posted last night (I've since made this change to the image in the original post).



What do you think? Is this an improvement? Does somebody know a better font that I should try?

Thanks for all your input!

IMO, that 2nd one looks much better. still has that old west feel, but is easily read.

Version two is actually harder to read, small print wise.

Try Googling "fontface.com"

I found one called Playbill that might work for you. Not sure where I got it...it was on my computer.

EDIT: I found a free version you can download at this link.
