Hey guys,

I'm about to bottle a mead soon, and I was trying to mess around with gimp to create a label. I went with a 4" x 3.33" label so that I could use the Avery 8164 shipping label (self adhesive). If anyone is good with gimp, I could use a few pointers! Here is the png, as well as the gimp file associated with it. Feel free to take/steal/modify anything you wish.

Let me know what you think.

You WILL lose some of your black edging with precut labels. Imperfect pickup and positioning by printers is typical with them.
