Default 1st attempt at label



Just found a pic on google images of a guy getting a standing eight, and then threw in my brew name and slogan in Dali font.

Any critizism or suggestions greatly appreciated

i dont think you will be able to easily read the white text once printed, they wont be enough contrast. Also the image wont look as good. i would darken the grey.

As far as the name and the slogan goes, I like. The pic does need to be tweeked a little so the font will stand out a little more.

I found your image using Google search and cleaned it up a little. The people in the background make the embossed effect look a bit strange...especially the dude in the tie. Here's what I came up with (both the cleaned up pic and an embossed sample):
