"Row your boat gently down the stream"... the illustration on the Steiermark beer label looks to be the origination of the nursery rhyme. Perhaps it was. Perhaps even, with the voyagers enjoying a jug of beer on a warm and sunny day. The illustration was created using a woodblock technique, and it is an illustration of a country scene in Germany or Austria of the seventeenth or eighteenth century. A bold sash is drawn across the woodblock illustration; this is where you put your main message. The lettering in the sash is blackletter - the type style used on the first books printed by the Gutenberg press. This type style is still very popular today on signs in Germany for biergartens and eateries.

About Custom Photo Labels — Steiermark
Many photo styles are wordless, so you say it all with the picture you choose to put on it. Choose a sweet and tiny sticker to seal your envelope flap, to ID your books and other possessions—dishes and serving utensils taken to a potluck, etc.—to put onto your toddler's toys that go to a playgroup, to make a toast to the honored guest at a birthday party, shower, wedding, anniversary, retirement, memorial, etc., or create a tiny photo label to put on stem glasses or drink cups. This makes for an especially meaningful toast. When it's all said and done, it's the photo that says it all.
