I don't mean to sound like the grammar police, but do you mean "Summer's Sunset"? (with an apostrophe)


If not, sorry. Great looking label.

Love it. It reminds me of my Bathwater Blonde.

I tried it and it didnt look good so out it went.

Grammer has a place, that place is not on a beer label IMHO.

I love this label, I have yet to make any labels but I have been thinking of trying some out, I had come up with the idea of all my beers having old looking pictures of women with a suitable hair colour to match the beer.

The picture you have used is exactly the style I was thinking off. Did you find it somewhere or do it yourself? Unfortunately I am not as good an artist as I would like so may struggle to produce the labels that I am planning.

Tremble,

I can't speak for knewshound, but my Bathwater Blonde (different thread) is similar style to this. I found my pic using google and searching for pin-ups. Found a ton of good ones. I am photoshop challenged, so I used Powerpoint to lay-out mine. Knewhounds looks like he might have used a more advanced method, i.e. GIMP/Photoshop.

I am "challenged" by Photoshop et al and used Powerpoint as well.

I allows the scale I want and friendly tools.

Looks decent enough I think.

As far as the pics go, I also searched for "Pinups", "pinup girls" etc and chose those that suited a beer label. ALl of my labels have had such a pic and they are renound in my circle of friends. The delight when a recipient sees the great label is satisfying.

Cheers,

knewshound

Thanks for the advice, I am in the Airforce and am going for the look of the WW2 bombers nose art, though not exact copies of it, just that style.

I checked out google and there where a ton of cool pictures, I will post something when I get it stuck together, assuming it does not look like a 2 year old has gone wild with crayons!

PS. Homer I love your Bathwater Blonde Pic as well, I may just rip you off on that one at some time!
