lookup Gimp.

It is the bastard child from when Photoshop went slumming and knocked up MSPaint in the ghetto.

Its free, and has many of the more useful features of Photoshop, without much of the other stuff that you will never need unless you are a professional graphic designer

I hope this post works.

It took all of 5 minutes to approximate your logo, insert it on the lable and play with the colors.

I like the back story behind the name.
Cool, thanks! And thanks... yeah, we used to do it all the time. "Yeeeah... we're probably just going to relax at The Cape... maybe have some folks down".. (as if we had some summer house on Cape Cod)... in the mean time we were sitting on a little sun porch in Quincy Mass watching Sox games on a 12 inch TV, pouring BMC off the kegerator I had built.

Thrice's label is nice. But I CANNOT read "cape". It needs to read the other way (left to right) like normal.

Also there's a fairly easy way to duplicate your current logo. Take a photo with more contrast (less flash probably). Then you can put the photo as a background in your drawing program and "trace" the label. (mostly the knot I assume, just input the text). It's actually pretty easy.

Also if you want a vector graphics drawing program (ala Illustrator) try "Inkscape". It's also free, and you can use all the online Adobe tutorials to learn the techniques you'll need. Like tracing.
