    New Apple Wine Label Design

    Thanks for the feedback. Yeah I just noticed I had "fresh" too many times. I still have to work on some alignment issues and spacing, but I think I'm going to use this background as a template for all of my wine labels. Also, the logo at the top, is that too hard to read? should I...

    First Crack at a label design

    Good Idea. I'm using Adobe Illustrator, so that is fairly easy. I'll update it in a couple of days and repost. Thanks!

    Yes it is. It boils down to... you are property of the US Government. It's accomplished by statutory and contract law.

    I wasn't sure about the leaves either. I'll have to replace them with something else I think

    New Apple Wine Label Design

    HI Again, I'm working on a new Apple Wine label design. It needs some formatting still, but how is the general design? I tried to use fewer fonts this time, but I think it may need more contrast.

    The short answer to this is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kelo_v._New_London You don't own your house, and land or even your vehicle. The government can take it anytime they want.

    First Crack at a label design

    I think I have the images of the Constitution scaled back to a 20% screen or so. I'll bump that up a bit to a 30% or so. Is the "stencil" font a little much? I was trying to go for a Military type look, I'll re-work when I get back home and re-post. Thanks for the input!

    what do you think of my first label

    I think the warrior guy looks awesome. Is he stock artwork or did you design him?

    I'm not an artist by any stretch of the imagination. I work in the printing industry and have access to thousands of dollars worth of design software and high end fonts. Thanks for the positive input, I think it's missing something... but I can't figure out what

    US food reserves are nearly gone

    First Crack at a label design

    This is my first crack at a beer label design. I've been doing my dads wine labels for years, but never liked them too much. I am interested in suggestions / comments to make it more appealing. Please fire away.

    US food reserves are nearly gone

    I have every intention this morning when I posted this to try and give everyone a heads up. I follow this stuff very closely along with economic and government issues. Normally I'm a pretty easy going guy, but I tend to get pretty defensive when people are "attacking" me without...

    US food reserves are nearly gone

    Here you go "dude" I planted a raspberry patch yesterday for some homegrown fruit for some raspberry wine and a raspberry mead. I have not tried a mead yet, but I've learned a lot from all of the members of the mead section. I did not join this this message board to be a TROLL...

    US food reserves are nearly gone

    Dude, perhaps you smell something else. This is my first thread on this site. It just happens I was on another MB I belong to, and this was a thread I came across that pertained to this site (wheat). I'm sorry if I have upset you for not posting in other sections on this board yet...
