Ok, so I usually just keg things, but Red asked me to brew up some raspberry wheat as a b-day gift for a friend of hers. It'll be bottled, so I figured I needed a label! Here is my first pass at it. Some beer and brewery info will go in the grey box on the right.



Let me know what you think!

I like it, but I think that lightening up the text a bit to help it stand out would be good.

Plus maybe a feathering on the edges of the picture to blend in better for a smoother cutoff than a hard one. But looking good!

That warning wasn't personally directed at me, was it?

I think it was...

Are you sure about the "what happened to your pants" as opposed to "what happened in your pants"?

I like the hard edge...Very....Paper Back Horror Novel esque.
What would happen if you added a white of light gray drop shadow to the lettering to help it stand out.

print that out and look at it. i am betting it will be too dark. dark images look better on a back lit monitor than printed on paper.

Thanks for all the feedback!

Indeed, the colors needed to be adjusted for printing. The red especially needed help.

There was a drop shadow of gray on the upper text, but not the DDBC - I moved the shadow down and over a little more for better vis, and added a grey to the DDBC as well.

Still can't decide about the feathered edge on the photo. Of course, it seems Photoshop does blurs differently now (just upgraded from Elements 2 to Elements 6) and I can't figure the friggin' blur out now!

Also, added the gray wheat heads and the pawprint.

And, no, mrk305, that warning was not aimed at you! Sounds like it hit without being aimed, however
