Just thought I'd make a thread for my labels and gift packs. I don't always make labels for my beer or wine, basically the recipes I have perfected get a label and are usually gifted.

Those are some great looking labels. Did you make them yourself or had someone do it for you?

Awesome work. I remember your wine labels from the other thread.

I just remembered, when I was a kid, my mom took a public speaking class at the local community college, and she took me with her for the last day, the presentations. One guy based his on homebrew, and I distinctly remember him saying, "The best part about home brewing is the labels!" The labels had pictures of his face on it, and he passed out a bottle to everyone. He must've learned a ton in that public speaking class for me to remember it years and years later.

I make them myself, thank you!

Labeling is one of my favorite parts of homebrew as well, I love being creative, graphic design has always been one of my favorite ways to do that. If I can couple that with drinking? Perfect! And thank you!

I love them all, but those wine labels are absolutely gorgeous! I really love the charred edges on them. Very nice!

Havent really made many labels lately been pumping out a lot of repeat recipes and similar styles so I have just been using old labels. Here is one I just finished the first draft on. It is a bit rough but its a work in progress.

Weizenbock.

It works great. And a spray can of it lasts a really long time, you can put as many coats as you want to achieve the gloss you're looking for. But the biggest reason I do it, is it increases the depth of the colors, it also locks the inkjet ink in a waterproof coating so they don't run when the bottle sweats.

Here is another rough draft that I just finished. Im probably done tinkering with it. I get tired of working on one project for too long.

I like it, is the font hand drawn? The only thing I can see is that the font seems pixelated. Otherwise I like the graphic and the design it's simple and keeps the point.

It's not hand drawn. It's called "Blackadder" and is in Coreldraw 11, which I used to draw the label. Thanks for the input. I'll have to up the DPI before I print some.

Channel66: are you using CoralDRAW as well? Adobe Illustrator? I have some fairly specific ideas on what I want our labels to look like, but my tech-savvy is nil.

I'm using mostly Photoshop cs5 and an old wacom tablet to draw on. I have used illustrator before but I'm not proficient with it.
