That drop shadow makes it tough to read. I'd bring it in tighter and darken it.

I like the label! Good idea

Is there a way to bring the shadow in closer? It is kind of double vision. (after a few homebrews it might be quadruple vision ). Maybe you could hand edit the text, you know zoom in real close and with a brush tool or something make the text lining. 'Course it all depends on the software you are using. It is a great label, imo and it is worth any time you put into it.

Yeah, right now I'm just doing it in Powerpoint while at work (slow days during the holidays) so I'm limited in what I can do.
I think I'll download and figure out GIMP at home and give that a try.
I'm only doing labels for the beers that knock my socks off and this was one of them. It'll be worth the time.

Thanks for all the input everyone!

Here's what you do with the GIMP, (imo). Take your label, then go in with a dark color, real fine pen set to like %60 opacity. Zoom in and shadow it. When you are done, zoom back out. Then take out the smudge tool (again use a lower opacity) and you can blend it smooth. Remember to save between steps and to pause once in a while and look at it fullscreen. This technique works very nicely. GIMP has some cool @ss stuff in it.
