Over our 30+ years of putting paint on bottles, our art team has seen and helped execute thousands of different designs for the beer, wine and spirit industries. You read that correctly. Thousands.
The art comes in to us from everywhere and in many forms. One day we’re gathering around a perfectly polished agency submission and the next we’re pooling our inner detectives to decipher a napkin doodle. In all cases, design requests go through our creative team, a little design agency right in house and at your service. The team is made up of designers that can take that napkin sketch, look past the water stains and create a design that translates into a stunning printed bottle.
The complement to great design is perfect execution- and do we ever love pushing our production capabilities to perfection! Led by your very own appointed designer, we meet weekly with our creative and production teams and brainstorm on your behalf. We look at all angles of the package, starting with the bottle itself. We examine it, identifying any areas of print limitation or even better, areas of print opportunity. Fun fact: It’s at one of these meetings we discovered we can print one and half times around a bottle.
We also look at paint and specialty treatments that will benefit the design and if we can’t do it in house, we partner with suppliers to create custom paints and finishes.
We’re passionate about design and getting it right, we’ll work and rework concepts until they’re production ready -and keep you involved at every stage. It’s all part of our collaborative approach that results in amazing printed glass.
Even if it’s a design that starts as a simple scratch drawing on a beer coaster.
Connect with us and we’ll put you in touch with your very own in house design expert.
