Ok, so I've been wanting to make a label for some time. I was fooling around with gimp and made this, it's not quite done yet but I figured I'd show it anyway. I hope to get better with gimp and inkscape so I can make some as good as the others on here.

You need some shadows or outline around the words (especially the bottom ones) so they stand out more. Cool graphic though

So a few things I would do is think of
- all caps on "Old Ore"
- some kind of white boarder, its too hard to read "cream ale" on the bottom
- Have the "Cream Ale" text follow a path similar to "ole Ore" so that the words don't curve to fit the oval, but the letters change shape if that makes sense.
