Your craft beer labels and folding cartons say a lot about your beer and about your reputation.

We’ve all been there: standing in the grocery aisle looking at the world of options for a six-pack. It’s a highly competitive market… and the design of packaging, the descriptions, and the designation of what kind of beer it is are tremendous factors in making a 10 second decision that can make or break your weekend.

Labels for your bottles or cans, and folding cartons go a long way to making the sale, and persuading people to come back for more. Modern, high quality packaging and labels communicate credibility and authenticity, and make sure that your beer gets a fair shot.

High-End Label Finishes

Creating a multi-sensory packaging experience gives your products and brand a high-quality and high-value appeal. Draw your audience’s attention by adding a sensory look and feel that enhances the overall appearance and sophistication of the finished product.

Foiling
 
Provides a light-reflecting visual effect of metalized foil that is transferred to the label surface.
Embossment
 
Creates a raised area from the flat surface of the label, giving those design elements depth and texture.
Tactile Varnish
 
Has two aesthetic qualities; a gloss visual effect and a physical feel. The varnish is raised from the surface of the label.
Dual Finish
 
Provides a visual aesthetic of glossy areas contrasting with dull areas in the design of the label. The neutral dull areas within a design bring attention to the colors that illuminate in the glossy areas.

The Craft Brewer’s Guide to Beer Packaging, From Concept to Final Product

The American beer industry evolved from the centuries-old European tradition of creating simple, four-ingredient beers. But in the past three decades, a new generation of upstarts and innovators has turned that model on its head, rejecting the mass-market lite-beer aesthetic and embracing new brewing techniques, new flavors and boutique, small-batch approaches.
