Default My First Label (not dial-up safe)

Well, here it is... my first label. It is for my second batch, the oft renamed sweet stout that has ended up with the name Watership. Let me know what you guys (and gals) think.

mod edit: removed hot link to original image due to the size, but leaving a clickable link

Well... a person can work up a mean, mean thirst after a hard day of nothing much at all.

I like the label.... Nice and simple. If you do a whole series with a similar style, you would have an easily recognizable brand.

But... MAN, you should enable compression on that image. With as much relatively mono-tone green as there is on it, there is no reason that the jpg (even at that large resolution) should be over 100kb!

Yep, that's a fat graphic. I saved it and ran it through the optimizer from PaintShop Pro X and here it is at 62K.

Ok... I'm going to use my Mod Powers to remove the original image.

Scream if you have an issue with that, trinitone, and I'll put the original back in.

Well, I was about to replace the image, but that's fine. What can I say? As someone who does a lot of print design all day, I tend to overdo it sometimes.

Interesting, I hadn't seen this before. I like the play on Watership Down.

OK so, what do you folks use for paper?

Where do you work that you do print design?
