I think the label turned out pretty well, which is probably going to be more than I can say for the beer (it's in secondary right now).

Oh, I should mention that I didn't draw the raspberries and leaves - those came from Google image search. The rest of it is mine, though.

I like it, the colors might 'pop' a little better on a black background. Thats about all I can add

Gotta love that photoshop banner huh? I use it on mine as well. You can curve the banner by using the Shear Filter (Filter->Distort->Shear).

Hope it helps

Thanks all! It's supposed to be a cabin in the background, but that didn't come through very well.

A hint of cabin is good, just like a hint of raspberry is best.

i think black on the background would be awesome, how will you make them stick and print them ?

Looks nice on screen! I'm wondering if you have enough contrast in the background to show on paper. I'd print a couple of paper copies and make your adjustments - if you haven't already.

It's certainly big enough so that when you size it down, it should print without pixilation.
