Label of the Week: A humble garage, reborn into an incredible winery

Label of the Week: A humble garage, reborn into an incredible winery

Of course, we are talking about Garden of Granite! Buckle up and get ready to explore one of North Vancouver's hidden gems.

Sourcing fruit from around the world, this little winery started their craft recently and not only are their wines far from ordinary, but we also can't get enough.

One of Garden of Granite's mouth-watering creations is their Malbec (2020), a true blue. Sourced from organic vineyards in the lush Uco Valley in Argentina, its pleasant aromas of blueberries and blackberries create a  robust, juicy feel on the palate. A perfect touch of acidity balances the intense fruit notes and leads to a smooth and lengthy finish. This Malbec is a great companion on any occasion!

Its excellent flavour can only be matched by its artful custom label design.

A unique garden concealed by granite walls reveals its continued blossom through lively wines and captivating labels.

Whoa! That's pretty nice.

Garden of Granite's Malbec (2020) beautiful Custom label is one of a kind.

These two shaped labels (Front and back) are printed on 70# felt textured estate paper, a heavy stock paper with a textured finish that gives a luxurious feel. We know this is the ideal paper stock for products that need to make a high-end impression, such as wine & spirit bottles, but you can also use it for other products like gourmet food or high-end cosmetics.

As anyone in the packaging industry knows, first impressions are everything. That's why it's essential to have customs labels that look good and stay true to the brand. So when our partner approached us to help them with their labelling needs, we knew that silk screening would be the perfect solution.

Spot Varnish via Silk Screen Printing is an embellishment that allows highly detailed and vibrant images to be printed onto a surface and accentuates the design with a stunning glossy finish. For Garden of Granite, it helped create a uniform look and maintain their branding across multiple SKUs. In addition, this recommendation makes printing very efficient and reduces tooling costs considerably.

To optimize costs even more, our team worked hard and was able to combine these two shaped labels into one die-cut.

End Result: Great designs paired with superior techniques and materials, faster printing, reduced costs and maintained branding across all SKUs! Does that sound like the whole package?
