Default Wind 'er Up Winter Ale

Dusted off an old copy of Print Shop (can't believe it's still around) to make a label for my Wee Heavy - giving quite a bit away as gifts, otherwise the only labeling I do is a Sharpie on the bottlecap Recommendations welcome - I have zero design skills.

Looks good, although you might consider dropping the shadowing on the upper lettering, since you don't do it on the bottom.

[Like the lady. Looks like a Vargas.]

Thx david - good idea. Good eye as well - it is a Vargas (minus the turnkey)

I think that's PrintShop's 8-bit history showing through - when I print it comes out looking fantastic. Same with the shadowing; it looks terrible on the screen but the gradient is smooth when it's printed. Can't complain about the results, but the GUI leaves a lot to be desired.
