Troubleshooting cold-weather labeling problems during storage and shipping

Oct 17, 2019 09:00 AM

Winter weather impacts both our personal and professional lives — frozen water pipes, school closures, icy streets. And if you live in an area where freezing temperatures are the norm, you can add labeling problems to that list. Labels that apply and perform perfectly during summer months will fail when the temperature drops if you don’t take the proper precautions.

Should you use imported glass bottles?

Sep 16, 2019 09:00 AM
In the end, the consumer will decide.

You’ve poured your heart and soul into crafting the perfect wine or spirit, and now it’s time to choose the perfect bottle and label to match. You’ve probably already considered the color, shape, style and size of your packaging — but which bottle supplier should you use?  

Cost will be the deciding factor for most wineries and distilleries. Customers want high-quality products at a low price, and packaging seems like a natural place to reduce costs. But cheap packaging materials can come with hidden costs of their own.

Do My Labels Look Good?

Feb 23, 2015 03:09 AM

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

Feb 20, 2015 02:40 AM


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.

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.

Top 7 Triggers for Testing Your Label Material

Dec 04, 2014 06:00 AM

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.
