Hi all,

Just wanting to get some thoughts from folks on this label mockup I have here. Designing it for a tourney set with 5s, 25s, 100s, and 500s.

Thanks.

I like it. Personally I would enlarge and lengthen the text to make it more visible and lose the est. and the moon.

Also are the denoms color matched? If not I would try a lighter color to stand out more, maybe yellow?

I'm with stocky... Imo, the est. 2015 is too small and it won't read well... The font of the Medialuna is also not large enough for being the name of the card room... Just as a suggestion, i'd lose the est. 2015 (per stocky) put Medialuna on the top portion with a larger font and card room on the bottom with the same font. You could shrink just a bit the dancers so it could fit between the text. I'd also make the denoms a little bolder. Just suggestions of course... I think it's a great start and I like where it's going...

I dig it and think you're off to a great start. I'm not a huge fan of the font but don't have any suggestions off the top of my head (besides trying a bunch of different options). I would move the text in from the edge a bit. I would also suggest printing them off in real size to see if all elements will be read-able - not sure if the designs at 3- and 9-o'clock will be legible or just look like fuzzy dots when printed.

Great design, I agree with all the comments so far. Increase the font, move it away from the edge, etc... Best advice is to print them out to see what they look like.

All good comments, though I think you have to keep the moon, since it's the "Halfmoon" cardroom.

Really like the theme, think it's going to be cool. As others have said I wonder if the purple is too dark to be easily readable on the dark background.

I like the moon, if it ends up being too small maybe you could shift things around a bit and make it a touch bigger?

I agree with much of the above - it's a beautiful start to the theme.

Definitely print it actual size to get a feel; I agree the font is small. The est. 2015 may be unreadable because of the size, and depending on the chip printer, may simply be completely unreadable because of fine detail.

I do think you should keep the moon element; important to the theme - if you can't fit it well, consider two labels - tango dancers one side, the half moon on the obverse.

I also agree that the denom color lacks contrast, but I wouldn't agonize over that too much until you've got it mocked onto chip colors. You'll probably end up re-working it, anyway.

Nice design. I think I would outline the demon font in white instead of black. I would put Medialuna on the top and Card Room on the bottom to replace EST 2015. I think I would also make the moon a little bigger and maybe rotate it a little clockwise.

This is great feedback. Thanks so much for your suggestions. I'm going to incorporate some of these things and post another version soon. I agree that the moon would be good to keep. I was initially thinking of making the denomination colors correspond with the chip color -- but it wouldn't work with the black chip for the 100 since it's on a black background. So that purple theoretically would correspond with the edge spot color. Not really wedded to any of it.

are you planning to use a black background on all of the designs?

if so, you could consider replacing the two flowery designs on the sides of the denominations by moons instead.

or finding another way to incorporate the moon in another way, possibly making the moon yellow on all denoms, maybe a very faint shade of yellow

I agree with MaK... I like this one the best also... And in my opinion, already an improvement from your original design... A couple other things you may want to try:

- Increase the font size for the text even more
- Move the Medialuna and Card Room away from the border a little more also
- Equalize the distance of the numerals

You may also try different fonts to see which one go better with the curved text and your theme... Unfortunately I don't have a suggestion here :)

I think it's looking VERY promising...

Here's a couple other versions, incorporating several of the suggestions.

this one, flip the moon and you'll be close. it just looks unnatural for some reason

The first one looks best I think. For the 2nd, if you rotated the moon so that it's facing upwards like a smile it might look better, but I kind of don't like it because Media and Luna aren't the same number of letters so it looks asymmetrical.

Also, question to commentors. Is card room one word or two?

Card Room or Cardroom?

+3 for leftmost. Also make sure to print these out and see how they look in actual size

Far left one definitely. I think youve come a long way in 24 hours. I suggest shrinking the silouette of the dancers in the back so it doesnt overlap under the wording on the top and bottom. hopefully that makes sense.

I will try shrinking the dancers to see how it looks. For some reason, I don't hate that foot being beneath the "C", but I'll shrink and see which I like best. The feedback has been great and has really helped me refine this idea. Planning to print out some this weekend.

I'm also looking for another motif to use ... something a little more simple.

Yes, I see that now that I'm paying attention. Is there an extra charge for that? Do they have info on their website about it?
