    Yeah, it's a proof for now, but glad you were paying attention! I'll have to reprimand the guilty party, either my word processor, or my computer for the error.

    I use the same philosophy as I would for a child... don't name them until you know them. :) The name of a wine (and the overall design as a whole) is used to identify it, just like you choose your clothes to identify yourself. A good place to start is deciding if you want your label to be about you, or about the wine. Both are great, but point you in different directions in design (and the name is a huge part of the design). Then you decide what the attitude will be... funny, whimsical, serious, etc. Decide what you want people to feel when they see your label and read your name, what reaction do you want them to have?

    Jim, maybe a silly question but when you say "foiled" is that an expression or do you really use foils?

    I guess they're technically 'PVC Caps', but I didn't feel like saying I 'PVC Capped' them. ;)

    Ok, you asked. I like the crest, particularly 5he tree though I can’t say why. However, the colors are a bit jarring to me. Maybe tone them down a bit!

    Just my $.02 of course. And I’m just finishing a bottle of 2014 red blend on the deck, so my judgement could just be a bit clouded.

    I do something similar with my labels and, like another poster has suggested, I like the simpler designs best. As far as naming them, I listen to a lot of 60's and 70's music while working in the wine room. So, whatever song grabs me usually ends up on the label.

    I made a Carrot, Onion and Garlic cooking wine a few years back, and used this label:

    Some of the wine labels here look very professional. On the other hand, most of my wine labels are done on a whim. I recently did a Vieux Chateau du Roi (RJS) wine kit, and as it translates to "old castle of the King" I took a photo of a cross-stitch I did nearly 30 years ago, and went with that.
