These are my newest labels. Here's a pic of them in action, and then the masters below.







This one is clearly preemptive:

I like your banners, are you using templates, or do you make them yourself?

I found a whole cache of free banners online, but I can't remember where. I use those, mostly.

I added some different fonts, and some vines to fill in the dead space, as well as doctoring the photo of the pooch slightly.

I didn't take the picture all the way apart, so I'd normally place the vines behind the banner, and have some of them over lapping it, I originally had the vines orange, so I played with the color some.

Did you post the image somewhere? Maybe I just can't see it haha

I see where your image should be but the URL is busted.

Sorry, I got hung up at work, and couldn't repost it right away it was waaaay to big!

Here ya go:



It was quick and dirty, (just like my women, lol) so there is much more that can be done to enhance the label.

I may steal your vines idea, but I can't stand Blackadder ITC I dig the simple Times font, but the additions of the vines I like quite a bit. Thanks for the help.

It was between blackadder, and angelica, I didn't like the capital A in the angelica font, so I went with blackadder, otherwise, I personally don't like the look of the standard photgraph of the dog on your original label.

I'm not saying what I did is any better, but I think something needs to be done with the pooch's pic to make it pop.
