Wow, I really like that. That's one of the cooler homebrew labels I've seen.

Great work!!

I stole the idea myself from a 116 year old advertisement so it's not like I own it or anything. Feel free to steal away

The font for the dates is "1942 report". I got it from dafont.com. There are nine different typefaces used in total (ten if you count the one I used in the Gimp to make the "tax stamp" in this version), although some of them are similar. All of the fonts used came from dafont.com.

That is a really nice label Buford. Alas, I have no artistry in me but can see it.

But I must remind rdwj of the Apricot label posted here a while back? I'd search for it but it's not work safe!
