This page is a representation of the label for proofing purposes. Due to limitations in Browser technology, we cannot always exactly match the actually label design. The finished product will print more crisply but may have slight variations in letter spacing. Our technicians handle each design individually to ensure the best quality possible for your label.
Because our wine labels tend to be subjected to extreme scrutiny - you have ordered them for a special purpose; of course you want them to be perfect - and are also subjected to the rigors of shipping, packing in boxes, refrigeration, ice buckets, etc, etc, we have always focused on two key issues.
As a general rule, commercial wine labels are printed on the most technologically advanced presses in the world. Wine is an expensive product and a large portion of the total budget for producing a bottle of wine is given over to packaging. Matching this quality in the world of short run, personalized labels is a daunting task. Over the years we have continually striven to improve our print quality and raise standards and our labels are now all printed to photographic or near photographic quality.
Unlike most of our competitors we do not print on pre-cut sheets. All of our die-cutting is done AFTER printing, much like the process used by commercial wine label printers. This results in a much greater level of consistency, allowing for tight borders and truly professional results. And because our die-cutting system is a digital process, we can create complex, custom die-shapes, on the fly, at very little cost to the consumer.
Unlike commercial labels, which are not subjected to the same scrutiny, our labels must withstand a great deal of abuse and still look great. They need to be water and scuff resistant and withstand the effects of prolonged exposure to U.V. light. Meeting these standards in a way that allows for affordable short run production has been one of our biggest challenges yet also one of our greatest triumphs. When you order from us, you do not need to worry about your labels disintegrating as soon as they get a little condensation on them, or losing patches of ink when they rub against the edges of the cardboard box they are in.
Our labels are beautiful AND durable and we now offer two different finishing options;
Laminated Self-Adhesive Paper - This option has been our standard since the middle of 2011. The print quality is very good and the laminate provides an unbeatable level of durability and excellent water resistance while maintaining a slightly textured feel.
Self-Adhesive Poly Film - This option is a matte poly film that does not require any lamination. The print quality is excellent with vibrant, permanent colors while the face stock has the feel of a high end satin paper stock unlike any film we have seen before.
