not overly busy, just change the font...just because it catches your eye doesnt mean that people will stop to look at it if they cant read it

I don't think you need to change the font, just the outlining or something to make the font stand out from the background. There are many options there.

I really like the font, but it is hard to read. I have a black outline around the text. I tried pretty much every possible color but black came out the best.

thanks for the input guys. I'll keep working on it. You must have something to do while you're not making beer right?

Word, it looks great and I like the font. A drop shadow will make it pop out a bit more and separate it from the background.
