I brewed my own recipe with an 8.0 ABV and I called it "Rabid Bee Nectar." On both sides of the label I placed an angry looking bee. I will have to post a picture of it soon. I've not tasted it yet because I'm allowing it to condition for at least eight weeks. I get most of my graphics off of a public domain clip art site.

Searching for specific pictures or an idea can be a pain. So many of the pics are watermarked these days it can be tough to get what you're looking for.

yea that's where I've been getting most of my life as well,, gonna get me a cheap(if possible) PhotoShop program, then can have some real fun with these label...

in the For What it's Worth department. SWMBO just pulled up office and used the label maker. Not that I put labels on but I could if I wanted to. However it does have limitations, i.e. can't do the neckless thing, or at least we haven't figured out how.

that's when I remembered paint program.. on my roses red label it was water marked and I zoomed in and matched the colors where the water mark was to blend it away pixel by pixel.... yes pain in the ass but what else do I have to do anyways its part of the hobby for me.. lol

Here's a new one using a public domain stock photo from the web. This is probably going on my apple cider. Tried a couple of names like Bad Teacher and Teacher's Pet, but I liked the Van Halen reference. I had to download a couple of chalk style fonts. Kind of neat, there are a ton of them out there for free home use.

Exactly! Screwing with labels is keeping me busy while I wait incessantly for this stupid beer. It'd help if it'd STOP FREAKING SNOWING so I can get outside.
