2016: Best of Booze

By Helen Dugdale.
Best Of Booze Newsletter Head

At this time of year, we like to take a stroll down the booze aisle of our local supermarket, not just to pick up our favourite tipple, but also to count how many labels we've printed. (Yes, yes...it's a bit geeky, but my goodness it's ruddy good festive fun.)

At the last count, we realised that many of them had appeared in our Label of the Month column. So, we thought we'd recap on some of the boozy brands that we've had the pleasure of working with over the past 12 months.... 

January - Warner Edwards

As well as highlighting the botanicals used in each of the products, these new labels for Warner Edwards aimed to push premium quality cues and underline their association with British craft. Read more here...

March - Wolfburn Whisky

The print run was over four kinds, printed front and back on a reel and, to finish off this masterpiece, we brought out the material's texture with a high gloss varnish. Read more here...

It's printed on Tintoretto Gesso on the digital press and uses sequential numbers and variable data which makes tracking each bottle super easy. Read more here...
