My artistic skills are pathetic, and SWMBO is unhappy if I used up all of the ink printing labels, so I take a minimalist approach. I've got a buttload of the 2.75" x 2.75" diskette labels, so that's what I use for my template.

A few examples:

just downloaded illustrator yesterday, knocked these out in a couple hours. The brown victory one still needs some work done but I'm pretty pleased with the results.

let me know what you think!

Hey everyone, long-time lurker, first time poster. I'm loving all the labels in this thread, and was hoping to get some feedback on my own.

I was going for a 1950s type diner theme with a sort of stamp/letterpress distress. Not really sure if i pulled it off or not, though. I'm also terrible at graphic design, hence the simplicity. The label is going to be permanent (more or less), with the black circle in the center being chalkboard paint where I can write the beer name/stats for that particular bottle. Thanks for any critique!

My labels are rudimentary compared to many folks here. Here's a label for our Midsommar Cider - you can read more about the cider and the midsommar celebration in Sweden here http://www.singingboysbrewing.com/The-Blog.html

npauley88 - my deepest apologies, but I thought your "brown victory" post was a continuation of jimmayhugh's post above yours, taking "wrong" to a whole new level. On the other hand, jimmayhugh - there's your next label if you want to push the envelope!

...working on a label for the Scotch ale (with Groundskeeper Willie on it lol) and one for the Pumpkin ale.

This was for my sister's cider: (it was meh. This year it's going to sit much longer to settle out, and I won't let her impatience get the best of me.)
