Default First label attempt

Here is my first attempt, I couldn't copy the image. I used Microsoft Publisher and couldn't figure out a way to save as a JPEG. Does anybody know of a way?

What type of paper did you use? Method to stick it on?

Looks cool, get in my belly!

I'm sure there is a way but the easiest is to take a screen shot with the prt scrn key and paste into a graphics application.

Nice label.

Why's it called Fat Bastard?

Fat Bastard is a character from the Austin Powers movies. Have you seen them?

I just used regular computer paper, inkjet printer, and FF milk to stick them on.

Yes I have. I was just wondering why you named an IPA after it.
I presume just 'cause you wanted to.

You are right...no other reason than the idea popped in my head and the pale ale was ready!

Probably would be better on a stout?

No it's fine. Nothing wrong with a random name and using an image that you like.

Default Publisher?

Dirtymartini,

Did you use Publisher for that label? I have been using Publisher for all my labels so far and have a label that looks very similar to that. I used it for a "Fat Tire" clone called "Fat Cat Ale". I have found that if you are using Publisher that you can use an Avery label (#5164) or the Office Depot look-a-like #612-061 that looks just like a beer label.

I like the "Fat Bastard" label. Give the self-adhesive labels a try. They're much easier than using milk.
