    Default Honey Label Question

    Yeah, I'm putting the cart before the horse but I like to think ahead.
    Have been playing around in P-shop with an idea.
    We had mentioned to our accountant last month that we'll have to come up with a new name for our honey bee business and she asked why?
    She thought I should stay with our blacksmithing name on the label and market it that way.
    Seemed a little strange to me so I did a quick layout.

    Is that an odd way to name our honey or could it work?

    Not sure why the "attached thumbnail without the black border is still being included with this post. Can't make it go away.

    I'd buy it....don't see anything wrong with the "Furnace Creek Forge" name on there...gives it a nostalgic, "Old Timey" feel....kinda cool really.

    With a nice compliment like that, you could be our very first customer...
    LOL

    It needs a little tweaking and we wanted the plain label look with minimal colors.
    Sorta like a "less is more" idea.

    thanks

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it,,plus the label looks good so far.

    "XXX Forge" is the way old places might be named - as in Old Forge, NY. So it looks kind of like a place name, rather than a function name. I use the same name for my jewelry business and my honey labels.

    Once you get it worked out you can make me a "Cunning Hammer Forge" label template, my hives are behind the smithy.

    I'd put the word "local" down w/ the rest of the descripters. But that's just me.

    I think that was the photographer side of me taking over.
    I'm used to creating composite wallet photos in Pshop and I think you're right.
    thanks

    Fiddle around w/ it and see what else you come up with. You have time to play w/ it.

    I'd also like to have a facebook page and/or website for the honey side.
    Anyone have thoughts on creating a new FaceBook page seperate from the page that I use down below in my signature line?
    It might be better for honey sales to have it's own FB page name.

    Maybe I could do a FB page with names like these:
    Furnace Creek Forge Apiary
    Furnace Creek Forge Honeybees
    Furnace Creek Forge Raw Honey

    Those names are a bit long but may work.

    For the website I thought about adding an external link to www.furnacecreekforge.com and creating a stand-alone site for the honeybees.
    If I do that, the sub-domain would be something like honeybees.furnacecreekforge.com.

    My web host, www.photobiz.com, has some HTML5 sites that I can couple together with store template software if the need arises for internet sales.
    Their user interface is the easiest I've worked with so far.

    Feel free to further hijack this thread with marketing ideas.

    Here is a Paragon jar label I threw together.
    It measures 1.5" x 4".

    Might change the font for "Honey" but its a start.
