Metallic blue hot foil for The De Beauvoir Deli Co. olive oil labels.

Quite a tricky print due to the large patterned print area and delicate typography. But we persevered and after testing various metallic blues we found this striking metallic shade. Printed on a beautiful quality label stock and kiss cut to shape before hand applying to the bottles.

Graphic design by United Creatives.

We were really excited to be able to work with a new distillery in Ireland, The Boatyard Distillery. United Creatives are the designers behind this striking design utilizing silver hotfoils on Colorplan, taking elements of the location and history of the Distillery.

After testing different metallic foils on various papers they settled for two shades of silver on Imperial Blue Colorplan. We added a letterpress printed barcode and a blind emboss to enhance the tactile nature of the product. The labels are kiss cut to make peeling and application to the bottles as easy as possible.

If these taste as good as they look The Boatyard are onto a winner!

The London Distillery Company have collaborated with Fortnum & Mason to create a new limited edition Dodd’s Gin. Botanical inspiration for the gin comes from Fortnum & Mason’s rooftop bees and is carried through to the colour schemes and golden hot foil.

The labels are designed by United Creatives and are a reworking of their label for the original Dodd’s Gin bottles. The labels were letterpress printed in three colours on our Heidelberg platens followed with a metallic hotfoil. They were then kiss cut to allow them to be easily peeled off, hand numbered and applied the bottles. Printing such an intricate design with no trapping takes great care and attention to detail at each stage of the production.

The gin is available to purchase online from Fortnum & Mason but be quick as only 300 bottles have been produced!

Printing the labels

The London Distillery Company have launched Dodd’s gin, crafted at their new distillery in Battersea, London. They worked with United Creatives to create branding and design the bottle labels. The gin is distilled in ‘Christina’, a traditional copper alembic. The gin is then hand-bottled before the labels are numbered and applied to the bottles. So opting for letterpress labels continues the hand crafted theme.

The labels are printed three colours on our Heidelberg platens then ‘kiss-cut’ to shape making them easy to peel off and apply to the bottles.

Working with designers leads to some beautifully crafted work getting on our presses. So when Steve and Chris from United Creatives asked us to print these Whisky labels for their client Artisan Scotch Whisky makers Compass Box Whisky Company, we knew we were getting involved in something exciting.

The labels were letterpress printed on our vintage presses in one colour onto a beautiful uncoated label stock. The labels also required a die cut shape which we decided to ‘kiss-cut’. This means cutting the shape out of the top sheet of the paper enabling the label to be peeled off the backing sheet in one piece ready to be applied to the bottles.
