Here is my latest:

I think the fonts for the side text need smaller and a more narrow font.

also, it is a bit busy with the 3 font choices floating in the middle image. mixing fonts is fine if the are set apart but there is no banner and just to give visual interest and differentiate the areas of the titles.

Yeah, it is pretty sweet. We are probably going to go get some pizza there on Saturday. We live a little north of the city, and to be honest, pretty much every pizzeria is equally amazing, especially outside the city center. I walk 2 min to my local place and get the best margherita I've ever had for 2 euros.

I didn't think the pizza could be that much better than American pizza when I was moving over here, but I was supremely wrong. I will definitely miss it when I leave.

everything looks good except the first one looks a little dark. it might just be the preview and it might print well, but altering the brightness and contrast might make it pop more. with my phaser, i find that images always print darker than they appear on my screen so it might just be me.

My first three brews:

#1 Kölsch beer (Kölski is the Icelandic name for the devil)


#2 Robust stout (Jon Craxton was a bishop in Iceland in ancient times)


#3 Trappist beer (Oddur munkur was a monk in Iceland many hundred years ago)


The first batch with the labels:

Everything prints darker than a screen, a screen emits light...paper doesn't. You can set up color profiles to match printing and there is an easy setting in photoshop that does this as well.
