I'd say you've got the label right - looks great! "REPELLENT" seems to be a bit smaller on the actual can but the larger font makes it easier to read from a distance.

I was using a different photo. I agree, the one you posted has the word REPELLENT smaller with letter spacing. The one I used has all 4 bat sprays in a wall holder, and REPELLENT doesn't have that much letter spacing.

Also, the photo you posted has the white drop shadow coming out the top, while the image I referenced had the drop shadow to the right.

Oh well. Anyone who wants the photoshop file can use that as a start and play with font size and spacing, and drop shadow direction.

Hey thanks for all the information . The label looks great, too bad we have never been privy to good (Auction house) photos of the actual prop.

Well I hope it's OK to provide these files to the group. If not, I hope someone lets me know and I'll delete the link and files. Anyway, here is the original Photoshop file, a TIF and a JPG. These are my own work, and anyone is welcome to use/modify/etc.

Note that when I printed from Photoshop for my label, I printed at 20% size. The image dimensions are quite large (purposely, for resolution), so you'll need to figure out what size you want to print at.

Here are links to the three files:
