Thanks, I appreciate it! I am quite pleased- I already whipped up labels for my Oatmeal Stout and American Amber too. I tweaked the Winter Fest as well, so it was easier to read.

As far as the "classic" look, I drew inspiration from this 1920's-30's era Chicago brewery label...

What program did you use to make the writing look like that?

Oh, I know that the font is deteriorated. I've used that same font (Marcelle) on a couple different projects before. You have a bunch of brown spots all over and that's specifically what I was wondering about. I like your use of grocery bags. It gives a great look to the label.

I like it! I really do. I like how you did the antique look!

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback.

A4J I really believe the "spotting" comes from the milk "glue" and the reused grocery bags... I just applied the glue more liberally to some areas to see what would happen; and what you see is the result.

Nyer, first off go to dafont.com-- they have about a gazillion free fonts. Find one you like, and then manipulate and play with it in ms paint. MS Paint isn't very sophisticated, but if you take your time, you can actually do fairly decent things with it IMO.

Assuming you use windows:
Start>settings>control panel>Fonts

Drag and drop the font file into the fonts folder. It should appear in the font list of whatever program you fancy.
