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!

Blind Embossing

Embossed logo on 300gsm 100% cotton paperLetterpress printing creates a debossed impression into the paper. The inked plate is pressed into the paper leaving the design or type recessed. We can also print without any ink, a blind deboss. A simply and very effective technique.

The example above shows a blind emboss on 300gsm cotton paper. The image is raised, pushed from back to front. To do this correctly we use a male and female die to create an image that is sharp and crisp.
