Lets see your labels

One of my favourite threads on another board is one where people show off the labels they make for their bottles/keg handles. Having seen a great example here, in another thread, I though we should have our own. To get things started, a tap-handle and bottle sticker of my own design. The bottle sticker is a tax-stamp style sticker, that goes over the cap.

Concept for some future brew (I'm a prof, FWIW):

Any way to scale the damned things, aside from resizing/re-posting?

Thanks for the compliment on my label!
I'm sincerely impressed by yours, they're amazing and look professionally done. Love the Drunk Prof idea!! Appeals to the geek in me, big time.

This is the beer that I currently have on tap!

This one is in my secondary, just waiting for kegs to arrive at the local beer store and it's ready to go

This is the next beer I'm making

Trying for a consistent look and since I'm too lazy to learn photoshop or inkscape I found a simple template I use that allows me to mix and match pieces so that I can create different designs.

I've only done a couple of labels since I don't bottle very often any more.

Wow, these are all amazing. Nice range of styles and ideas. Great idea with the use of the periodic table - I really like the tax stamp as well. The shiftlessBum labels are hilarious and Jeffsmith, yours look really great! Is that your own original artwork??

I wish I could claim the bear and skull as my own, but they're stock art I purchased years ago.

Haha, well it takes skills to know what to do with 'em, and to turn them into something useful. Great looking labels man.

I know it's not a beer label... sorry to get off topic... but have you ever seen the Periodic Table Of Beer Styles?

I've done a couple of logos for ECHO and my own Brewery. No specific beers though.

I had not seen that - very cool. A copy now hangs on the wall outside my office!
