Wheatstone Label

Recommended Posts

I found a picture on the net and have spent some time retouching it, I'm quite pleased with the result!

Nicely done! It's a bit blurred on the left, is that just your scanner?

I just downloaded it fron the internet as a .jpg picture, trimmed it around the outside and fixed a few blemishes. Shrunk down to actual label size I think the blurring will be much less obvious.

Oh, dear! Will this lead to legions of German factory concertinas with Wheatstone labels marching to market alongside the ranks of German factory fiddles with Stradivarius labels? :D

My technique for anything like this is to insert the picture into a word document, then adjust the word page zoom on the screen, till it is exactly A4 size, and then resize the picture on the word page by dragging the corner, till it is exactly the size you want.

 

It works on 20 pound notes, so it should work on a Wheatstone label. :D

Here's something for the reverse side : It's taken from the original so hopefully it should match ok.
