Y'all rock!! Now I'm set for about a week and a half of designing. Do you suppose I could get close ups of each or a high res copy of this one? I would like to know that I got the writing done properly (still can't make out the name of the city on greenleaf and the others are impossible to find references on)

Also thanks for the link to the shirt, if nothing else it will hel me get the allignment right on all the text.

I'm shocked at how close I came from my one shitty reference I had to work with. Now comes the shuffling of pieces...

Looking at them, I already own a couple of these, Kicking myself for not grabbing the bourbon bottle when I saw it (didn't know it at the time) with any luck the antique shop still has them (there were 4 of them)

If the bourbon bottles are the correct ones, i'd buy one off you! I'm sure you could sell them all here, actually. ;)

I own a set of production made bottle labels. Maybe this picture will help you to recreate them.

You have made such a happy geek.. Now I can work on the whole bar. It might take me a minute to track down the cyrillic and such (English, newspeak, and nadsat are all I speak) But this is great. Bourbon label will be done in no time now.

Tracking down the phone number for the shop with the bourbon bottles. they have had them on the shelf for years, here's hoping they are still there...
Does anyone know what brands any of these other bottles were originally? the grain alcohol (fixing my label to match) seems to be a sprkling beverage bottle as it has the hallmakrks of one topped with a bottlecap.

I finished everything but the symbol in the blue ribbon. Is that a chalice with the sun behind it? I can't tell and it would seem foolish to simply guess knowing that a few members here own the originals. also, rather than simply using my lovingly altered dead earth pic does anybody happen to know iwhich planet it's supposed to be? seems too brown to be greenleaf.
