so heres the label for my beer the two little guys on it are supposed to be me and one of my friends. we aren't making a particular style but thought we would make a label any way. warnings and stuff are meant to be funny and there are misspellings and incorrect words in there just for the heck of it

Could you shrink the pic a bit and repost through edit? I can't get the full effect of the label because 2/3 of it are scrolled over. My only critique would be the use of the word "yummy." Guys shouldn't use that word. I think it's Man Code #72.

I like the label alot though. Great concept, art and colors. Give us a pic when you get one on a bottle. Those are always the best label pics.

Nice job on the label - it looks pretty professional.

A couple of minor grammar critiques (sorry, I'm a grammar/spelling nazi):

There should be a colon after the word, "ingredients," instead of a period.
"Yummy" is the correct spelling (two m's).
"Women" is the plural of "woman" (no s).

A more grammatically correct rendition of your warning reads like this:

However, I don't really get the correlation between pregnant women and driving cars or operating heavy machinery. So, it's a little awkward, IMHO. I suggest something like this:

Please, please, PLEASE, give the keys to a sober male friend.

Ok, I should've read the full post rather than just reading the label. Ya got me there.

On the other hand...it seems a shame to intentionally make such a professional looking label look amateur-ish with grammatical inside jokes.
