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!

Jamie at Sliced Bread Animation wanted a corner of his business card to perfectly match the angle of the orange forward slash. The only way to achieve this was to die cut the cards after printing. The choice of paper adds an elegant feel. Mohawk is a fine paper well suited to letterpress printing, in this case 540gsm Mohawk Superfine.

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.

We love this 2 colour wedding invitation for designer Elliot Jay Stocks and his bride to be Samantha. Printed 2 colours both sides on a hefty 1000mic recycled board and finished with die cut corners. The recycled board is rough and uneven varying the impression across the print area adding texture and random imperfections, making each print different from the next.
