    Hi Guys.
    Im trying to restore an old 1920's oil can for a birthday present for a old relative in the family and I have found this picture (underneath) but need it reworked to make it flat so its like a labell that I can stick to the oil can. any help will be greatly apprecated :D not only by me but my grandad too :D
    I have attached a copy of what the original can looks like for reference if anyone can help :D and im sure this was a prop in an old 1920 - 1930s movie :lol

    Thanks Chris

    You did notice the label on the 1st can is different from the 2nd can correct? The flag on the 2nd can matches the sign though.

    Here's a more straight on image with the logo from the 1st can. If someone else doesn't get it for you, I'll try to do at the first of the week.

    Snuck it in on me, ha.

    Create it in a vector program to avoid the pixelation. Inkscape is free to download and pretty simple to use.
