At what point are you having a problem with the fonts? Are you able to download them to your computer and get them unzipped? Are you unsure how or where to install them? It's actually pretty easy to do and I swear using one of those fonts for the "American Pale Ale" would make your label killer. The "Pale Rider" font is already good; because it's alot like the movie logo.

In a worst case scenario, tell me which font or fonts you really like, and I'll email them directly to you, already unzipped, with instructions on how to install them.

I am not sure I like the Naked City logo where it is. I kind of liked the negative space above the group of guys but I don't really have a suggestion for a relocation. Maybe a pin on the stip of his hat? I know it would be small....

Quality label It's a tough call trying to place that brewery logo, but I think it's at best where it is, there's no other place it can really go without obstructing the text or the focal point. Maybe extend the label and add recipe/details/brew and bottle date/ humorous government warning etc with the logo?

If you made the image a little less wide, and put a black edge (about 1/2" wide) along one side, you could easily place the logo there and even have room for a written description of the beer, a warning or a upc code. You can get the general idea from the image.

This is all great stuff. I'm going to work on it some more tonight (after I make a yeast starter for my Strong Belgian).

A few changes. Figured out how to download the fonts. Also added a text box to the left. Haven't decided what I'm going to put in there yet. Thanks everyone for your input.
