Three's Company

Kookaburra Natural Cleaning Products are distributed by ABL Development Inc., a family owned business in southeastern Colorado. The company is the passion of its three owners, sisters Beth, Heidi, and Laurie.


Raised together in the family business, each developed their own individual career specialties. Many of the day to day operations required to own and operate a manufacturing business were learned “under fire”, on the job and under pressure.

Do My Labels Look Good?

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

Label design review by label account managers

It's a common question label printers hear: "Do my labels look good?", or "What do you think of my labels?".

In our experience, these questions are posed from one of two places.

  1. The brand owner is proud of the label design, excited to share it, and anticipating positive feedback.
  2. There is a great deal of uncertainty and apprehension about the label design and the brand owner is reluctant to move forward with a design they feel is not as professional or attractive as it should be.

Just Say No to JPEGs for Print and Label Design

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

JPEGs are bad, and your labels will look bad
A low resolution photo will always print poorly. We recommend the print industry standard resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) at 100% of the printed size. This baseline quality measurement also applies to any other graphics or logos used in your label design. But you should never use JPEGs, even at 300 dpi.

Custom wine bottle labels

Boutique in the bay

Legoe Bay Winery is a boutique winery with humble beginnings. Like many wineries, and many other businesses, it all began in a garage. In 2005 the winery moved to it's current location, an historic marina, located on the west shore of Lummi Island facing Legoe Bay and the San Juan Islands. To visit the winery, you simply drive, bike or walk onto the Whatcom Chief ferry at Gooseberry Point, and leave your cares behind as you make the six-minute trip across Hale Passage.

Cold Weather Questions: Label Adhesive, Storage, and Shipping

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

Label adhesives, storage, and shipping in winter

Every year, winter weather requires us to make plans and preparations for both our personal and professional lives. Frozen water pipes, school closures, and icy streets are just a few of the yearly issues winter can bring. If you live in a part of the country where freezing temperatures are seasonally common it's just a fact of life.

What you may not have considered is the effect colder temperatures can have on your labels.

Top 7 Triggers for Testing Your Label Material

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

Test your label material

We've already shared with you "How to Choose the Right Custom Label Material" and the 6 questions to ask when deciding which material to use for your labels. Now we are going to talk about label testing.

One of the most important aspects of planning and purchasing your labels is the testing process, to determine if the material of choice actually meets all label performance expectations for your specific application. While there are many applications that may not require label testing, it is very important to understand that there are just as many that do. Even the most deliberate material selections should be tested. Time spent testing can save you both time and money. Advanced Labels is more than happy to provide raw label material for you to test on your containers, and in special circumstances we may recommend creating diecut blank labels to your exact specifications.

 

The importance of material testing cannot be emphasized strongly enough.
