This is the label as designed in Adobe Illustrator:

Here's the printed label on a test bottle. I'm using kraft brown label paper that I purchased from OnlineLabels.com:
Very nicely done. I like the fading effect. Combined with the brown paper, it looks very rustic. I like!

You can embed anything you want in them.

For instance if you want someone to visit your website with a smartphone, it allows them to navigate to your page just by scanning the code with their phone.

You could even embed the recipe for the brew in them.

To make your own just google for QR code generator.

Oh i know what a QR code is and how it's generated (I'm in the mobile software/logistics/mobile worker space..) I just think that unless it's really really relevant, it obscures the artistry of the label...

but, that's just me...

I see them on a lot of labels...

I disagree, I like them...makes it look like a real label. As homebrewers it isn't required to put the surgeons general warning on the label. We do anyway because it makes it look like a real label. I don't think any of that takes away from the artistry of the label, in fact in think it does just the opposite. Makes it look like a label that you would find on the shelf.
