If your anything like me you like seeing new labels that are made by you fellow home brewers. I hope others will post their labels here so it is easier to see the final labels in one spot.

Here are my first three:

Winter%20Storm%20IPA%20copy.jpg

Winter Storm IPA Discussion

Evil%20Pumpkin%20Pie%20Ale%20copy.jpg

Pumpkin Pie Ale Discussion

So let's see those labels :mug:

EDIT: I an effort to try and keep this thread for pictures i've added links to the"idea" threads about my labels. I love feedback (both positive and negative) but I'm hoping to make it so you can scroll through and mostly see pictures :)

This is the basic format of all my labels. I just switch out the name and info, and I also change the color of the rusty truck font to coordinate with whatever type of beer it is. I looks a little odd with a white backround, but I actually print it on "kraft" cardboard colored labels.

I don't take full credit for the design though. Another homebrewer on HBT gave me a bit of inspiration as far as the layout goes. I just tweaked it to my own liking.

I'm embarassed to even post this after seeing how nice yours all look. My computer skills are extremely elementary, but i hacked this together one day while bored at work and for the sake of subscribing to this thread, here it is. I haven't actually printed any of these, but the goal is to eventually put the style of beer, ABV%, description on the right hand side, but this is what i've come up with: (sorry so small)

my girlfriend drew this one for me. its an english brown ale with a minimal amount of fuggles hops and over steeped earl grey tea for tannic bitterness and then dry hopped with more tea in the secondary.

Muse435,
Are you using a template for these? If so, is it something you made up yourself? What program(s) are you using? They look great. I plan to start putting some of my ideas down on paper, just looking for some direction. Thanks for any help.

What's with the Qcodes? Do they link to something?

Edit: Cool they work! How do you make those?
Never mind, I'll probably figure it our now before you reply.

Or, I could send you an SMS! :p
Naw, it's too late.

Edit 2: Yeah ok, I found it :D
Hope you don't mind, I'm going to steal your idea now.
:eek:

And btw, they are nice looking labels! I just got all geeky when I saw the Qcodes....

Not to discourage discussion or anything, but I vote to keep this as primarily a label thread. I know sometimes when I'm looking for inspiration/examples, I struggle to scroll through hundreds of topics. Therefore, it'd be nice to have one common (sticky?!?!?) label only thread.

That said, here are two of mine:

They were all made by me, no template, I use photoshop elements and my canon 50D. :mug:
