Home brew wine and jam labels

Home made wine and jam printed labels
A lot has been happening since my last post - in this post, there's a new range of matching wine bottle labels and stickers for you home brewers. It's that time of year and we've already got a batch of peach wine, raspberry wine, pear wine and apple wine on the go. It's a great way to use up surplus fruit! There are also matching jam, preserve or conserve labels, and business cards in case you sell them! Some of the illustrations are made using old postcards by Caterina Klein, and where I haven't been able to find the fruit, using my own paintings or photos. As well as the above mentioned fruits, there are also grapes (of course!), apricot, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, plum, redcurrant, gooseberry, blackcurrant, fig, orange, lemon (maybe no good for wine, but good for marmalade and lemon curd), and the latest addition, sloes. I've frequently made sloe gin, it's a marvelous winter warmer! Unfortunately sloes don't grow around here so we substitute redcurrants - I imagine the result is a bit like the Dutch bessenjenever. I'm sure other varieties will be added as I think of them, or by request.

The whole range of these can be seen here.
