The Old name: it was a bit generic, and didn't lend itself to a theme.
It was also something of a mouthful to say.


The New Name, more Sci-Fi which is my style. And it allows me to work in references to anything of that sort.
Also rolls off the tongue easier. I still need to work in the ABV and such..

How much info can you folks pump into a QR code before it becomes useless at a size viable on a label?

I've fit a whole recipe on one, it works on a tax-stamp style label, so should be fine on a normal label. I have two examples on my blog:
Example 1
Example 2

Bryan

EDIT: if you click to show the images full-sized, you should be able to scan the QR code right off the screen. In my experience, much more than what I have there won't fit - the code (at the size printed) begins to get too small to consistently get a good read.

Anyone: Thoughts on the labels?

Printed version of the DDS didn't look good so I used more of the image, more gravitic waves.
