Plan on putting the tasting notes on the right when it's ready.

How do you get those rays with the gradient? I've seen lots of labels that incorporate some sort of lines or rays coming from the center (usually they're straight...I like that yours are wavy) and I'm descent with Photoshop but don't know how to make them? Is it an Illustrator thing?

Here are my latest. Printed on a tan paper with a color laser on reduced ink usage. I've tried a few different approaches but I like this one the best so far due to the least amount of investment and hassle. I kind of like the rustic label look and will likely stick with it as it lets me get away with less ink and cheap paper.

Affixed with milk.

Wow, lots of really cool labels in here!

Here is one my mom made up for me as a Christmas gift several years ago. I was heavy into motorcycle racing back then so she put a picture of me on the label. This was a pretty cool surprise.

That's a great label Coiz; fantastic composition.

sroberts- I really like yours too. And I think the minimal ink, letting some paper show through, kind of style can really work well sometimes.
