It looks nice enough.

Have you made another using all illuminated letters in the title?

No, I guess I could, but I'm afraid that would be too "busy" I actually had an orange tree and some cinnamon sticks on this for the JOAM, but that was too cluttered for my liking.

Here's my second go at it with new font and Illuminated J:


My Brews and Wines will go under my old nickname "Stumpwater", so Stump Water Wines and Stump Water Brewery. Here's a label I made for them:

Nice, I like the parchment style - be cool if you could buy paper to print on that was actually that kind. I also like the first one, no need to add any more illuminated letters than the first. Perhaps you can try antiquing - as in a shade of black that has hints of the parchment itself. Maybe try without italics.

Stuff like this...

Perhaps if the orange and beehive looked antiqued as well in some manner as well?
