Still in rough form.
Also, if you're going with a blonde, you might want to change the color of the swmbo on the motorcycle's hair to blonde as well...

What is the paper type called at kinkos? looks awesome.

Hey, I really enjoy the Allagash labels on the coolship series and FV13. Anyone have an idea on how to reproduce those labels? Have any of you tried block letter printing before? There's a bunch of kits in craft stores but most use too big of letters.

It'd be easier to just find a block letter font on a site like dafont.com, and print them. If you use a program like Gimp (free) you could design them in there, and then change the colors to make it only one color.

What is the font you used there for the main name on your label? I really like it.

I feel like it wouldnt nearly look the same and not as authentic. I'm willing to work hard to develop a block press for all my gueze blends

One of the things I would like to try (but haven't yet) is creating my own wood-cut blocks to print myself. You could design by hand or computer assisted, and then carve the wood blocks and ink them yourself for a truly hand-crafted artisanal craft brew.
