Working on a new label for my oatmeal stout. Here it is with white and with black lettering. Let me know which you prefer or if anyone has any other suggestions. I'm not sure I'm in love with the font, but couldn't find anything I liked better.

Looks fantastic Wolf, I love it! One suggestion though, perhaps you can blend the font a bit or maybe even incorporate the brownish/goldish tones of the background. The jagged edges (pixelation) on the text are a personal pet peeve and I think this could help. I like the white text better for that reason.

I see what you mean. Keep in mind, this is twice actual size, so it will be less apparent when printed out, but I would still like to blend it a bit better as you said. I really don't know how to do that though, I'm pretty much blindly groping my way through Power Point at work Wouldn't you say that If I incorporate the golden background tones it would make the text hard to read?

Okay, for the heck of it here's another with text closer to the golden hues in the pic. I put the lines in two different colors just to see both.

Yeah the Gold looks real nice. If you really want to get fancy, maybe a slighly darkened gold shadow or edge lining....just a brainstorm...

Yep gold with a dark brown drop shadow would look good.

I had thought text lining would like nice to, but I don't know how to do that.

I did figure out shadowing. Dark brown completely blended in, so I used a lighter color.

Also, now that I've seen it I like the two different color text lines in there. Thoughts?

I liked it with just the gold. This version makes me a bit dizzy though...blurred vision. How about just an outline around the gold? I do like the two different colors of text lines.
