On Vacation and Labels

Aug 27, 2014 04:00 AM

The first day of vacation is the most wonderful day. The week leading up to vacation? Not so much. There are always more tasks to accomplish than there are hours in the day. For most of us it's a frantic hustle to get as much done as possible to ensure everything continues to run smoothly in our absence (and it's always nice to return from vacation to a well-ordered home and office).

Jul 29, 2014 10:00 PM

Which would you prefer, an ill fitting off-the-rack suit or one tailored for your individual measurements? Would you rather have an architect design a home specifically for the needs of you and your family, or buy a generic one-size-fits-all manufactured home? If you enjoy the finer things in life, some communication with your tailor or architect is expected, and your valuable input should be considered. The finished product should be exactly what you set out to purchase.

Finding a Compatible Label Packaging Partner

Jul 17, 2014 07:00 AM

Print Brokers and Contract Packaging companies (co-packers) are facing increased demand from brand owners to become true turnkey, one stop shops.

Brand managers are looking for a co-packer that can facilitate all their filling and packaging needs, to act as a single point of contact. This does not necessarily mean the co-packer must invest in every service under the sun, though, when the same services can be offered through close relationships with partner companies.

In the same way, brokers are frequently called upon to make referrals to packaging suppliers and fulfillment companies to round out their print offerings.

Be On the Lookout for These 3 Chocolate Labels

Jul 08, 2014 07:00 AM

The people of Earth consume nearly 100 pounds of chocolate per second, and North America is home to the most 'chocoholics'. We just can't seem to get enough. In fact, in the last decade, global chocolate consumption has increased at twice the rate of production.

An unpleasant 'ingredient' in cocoa production

Tragically, our national sweet tooth may come at a steep price. Despite ongoing efforts to reform the chocolate industry, there are allegations that some suppliers and manufacturers are still benefitting from child labor and human trafficking in violation of international law.

Featured label: AquaNew Watt-Ahh, Water Bottle Label

Mar 05, 2014 06:00 AM


It gives life, it soothes, it cleanses. What is it? Water. Or, in this case Watt-Ahh – an ultra pure water, hydro-fortified for energy. The water is polarized and contains a reservoir of electrons to promote health and energy. While these claims appear rather pedestrian on the surface, the testimonials of Watt-Ahh consumers are nothing short of astounding – each attributing their experiences to the effects of Watt-Ahh. There are accounts of failing internal organ function being restored, nursing animals back to health, and even one unfortunate soul who had seriously injured his hand with a chainsaw who applied Watt-Ahh directly to the wound to aid with healing.

Feb 06, 2014 08:05 PM

Message in a bottle

You put your heart and soul into creating the perfect wine or spirit and now it’s time to bottle and label it. You’ve considered color, shape, style, and size, but which bottle supplier should you use?

For most wineries and distilleries, cost will be a deciding factor. With customers that increasingly want a high quality product at a low price, packaging seems like a natural place to reduce costs.

Featured Label: Briali Vineyards & Winery, Wine Label

Feb 05, 2014 05:17 AM

Down and Dirty with Briali

Environmental respect is anything but an afterthought at Briali Vineyard. This philosophy is at the very heart of Brian and Alicia ("Bri and "Ali") Moeller’s decision to start a biodynamic winery after nurturing 15 varieties of grapevines over 9 years.  This type of eco-friendly, organic winemaking is hard work. To Brian and Alicia, who are completely hands-on with their vineyard, it’s worth it. They love the labor intensive challenge of producing a pure, high quality wine.  And in just their second year open to the public, Briali has already sold out the first year’s vintage.

"Not all certified organic elements are earth friendly. Something for everyone to keep in mind." – Brian Moeller
