My first attempt at a label design. This one's for my Pale Ale, other styles would be similar, "THe Porter", etc. What do you think?

Would you break form and call your DIPA Beyond THe Pale?

Very nice - only thing I'm not sure of is the UPC code - sort of draws my eyes away from the rest of the label.

Hey - just being honest - I can see people asking about the UPC code when they should be looking at the beer.

I like. It would distinguish itself from other labels on the shelf.

Ok, I've revised it somewhat - ok a lot. The first one didn't print out with all the details very well and it looked a little too light in color on the bottle than what I wanted. Sooo, on to round two (I also switched to "THe Amber")...

Nice! I would put an outer glow around the main title (THe Amber), as it needs to pull away from the background a bit... or blur/lighten the background a bit.

Nice look, though!

Yes I see what you mean. Its not as bad when I print it out and wrap it because the background words become less noticeable. On the first design they practically disappeared, hence the background words got more pronounced on round two. But I think it could be tweaked a little as you point out, so I did...

Wow, wheeliechicken............you've put most of us old-timers to shame with your labels.

Would you be interested in helping me with some designs for my brews?

You're close enough to me we could get together in person!
