I quit doing labels due to time and the amount of brewing we were doing, plus going to kegs, but my 20th batch is a Christmas present to friends and family, so I made label for the 22oz bottles I'm handing out.

I'm no designer or artist, but I think these turned out alright.
Love the Saison man. Great work

You're right. The monk DOES look great on the bottle! Goes to show, never judge a label before it's glued onto a bottle.

Very first label (finally) using GIMP. SWMBO and I collaborated on the elements. It's still missing ABV% and other small things but that'll come in time.

I'd love some feedback. Is there anything missing? Something that could be changed? Also, big question: can I bend text into an arch in gimp instead of doing the slope like I did? THANKS!

It's a chocolate peppermint sweet stout. Hope you all get the reference (we've been watching Christmas movies every night this last week)

Bending text in gimp is a pain in the ass.
There are some tutorials on youtube to do it, though.

Agreed, I've tried it many times - never perfect. I've spent too much time on this topic getting the hang of it. Youtube it...but good luck!

This is fantastic. Even better than the beer goggles one. I love the bubbles theme.
