    Default Working on a label

    I am going for a simple old timey feel. I need to clean up the bottom, I am new to text on a path stuff, but I like the font. So far that is about all I like, but it is a start.

    Keith... just my opinion here so do not beat me up or take my milk money....

    I do not like using the words "sting" and/or "hurt".

    You are not the first beekeeper to say that. It is a little play on words that my wife cooked up after my first year of beekeeping. Let's just say I was more prone to getting stung then. I like it, but I can see how the words come off as negative to some. I did take an informal poll at work and the non-beeks didn't seem to mind. Granted this is not marketing research by the Honey Board, and I work with people who may be less sensitive to such things. I dunno, I haven't got anything better at the moment.

    Milk money, nah, I want your beer money!

    I adjusted the bottom, changed the smaller font, but left the text unchanged.

    I like it, Keith, hurt, sting and all. It appeals to people's sense of humor. The sourpusses don't have to purchase it (but they need it the most!)

    I think it's great! The old skep, the font, and the brown ink acomplish the old-time feel very well. And I think the name is great.

    Yes, I am also trying to come up with a nice label. I think yours is great.

    Excellent.

    I would hate to get stung by one of those bees.

    I like them both, can't decide. Can you move the upper left bee that is kind of impaled on the "T"? Move it and the other one near the H down a tad but maintain the symmetry.

    Oh, and you have "Columbai" on the 2nd one...

    Ugh, spelling on a keyboard is my nemesis. I like the changes.

    Looks great, I would reduce the size of hive, table, and bees so you don't "crowd" the words too much. Other than that, you got a winner.

    I love photoshop - I can fiddle with the design all the time and never lose anything. I just wish I could justify the latest upgrade.
