Scotc Ale Label
 
This is a work in progress label im doing for my recently bottled Scotch Ale. I'm printing it greyscale on yellow ( was hoping for more of a parchment color :\ oh well ) label paper i threw into my shopping cart at Northern Brewer, hence the coloration. Im not satisfied with it yet, but since i planned to give a few as gifts this weekend, im basically out of time on those.

"Aut Pax, Aut Bellum" means "either peace or war"...which is my family clan (Clan Gunn) motto and a pretty sweet beer drinking phrase. going for an old, worn look so theres unfaded, and faded...anyway, have at it. :ban:

It's not bad. I wouldn't worry too much about the color unless it really stands out against the bottles. The faded is definately the way I'd go.

Nice label!

If you have that image on a white background on your computer, you can add a worn look to it with PhotoShop or Gimp, and then print it on the yellow paper to complete the look.

That is nice. I wouldn't want to cut each one out, but that is just me.

Photoshop. It's hand-drawn, but i cleaned it up and manipulated it and added the type in Photoshop.
