Not a problem! I think you definitely have a winner with that background image, though.

You could try a "drop shadow" effect or a slight outline on the text. Both really help the text "pop" if that's what you're going for.

I tend to put small shadows outlines on mine and it helps a lot.

Nothing fancy, just Beer Labelizer and some public domain artwork. Laser printer onto regular copy paper and milk for glue. Works well.

Here are a couple of labels on the bottles already both from Austin home brew supply recipes. I used Microsoft publisher and clip art for the graphics printed onto 3"X7" paper and Elmer's glue stick to hold it on.
