That seems like a heck of a technique. Would never have thought of putting poly on paper.

It works great. And a spray can of it lasts a really long time, you can put as many coats as you want to achieve the gloss you're looking for. But the biggest reason I do it, is it increases the depth of the colors, it also locks the inkjet ink in a waterproof coating so they don't run when the bottle sweats.

Here is another rough draft that I just finished. Im probably done tinkering with it. I get tired of working on one project for too long.

Here is my basic label. Figure I will use this one and just add info for each beer I decide to label. What do you think?

I like it, is the font hand drawn? The only thing I can see is that the font seems pixelated. Otherwise I like the graphic and the design it's simple and keeps the point.

It's not hand drawn. It's called "Blackadder" and is in Coreldraw 11, which I used to draw the label. Thanks for the input. I'll have to up the DPI before I print some.

Channel66: are you using CoralDRAW as well? Adobe Illustrator? I have some fairly specific ideas on what I want our labels to look like, but my tech-savvy is nil.

I'm using mostly Photoshop cs5 and an old wacom tablet to draw on. I have used illustrator before but I'm not proficient with it.
