Beverage Can Label Experts
Because of the great brewery customers that have trusted us all these years, we have become beverage can label experts. Putting labels on cold, wet cans moving at high speed is not easy. Excellent machine operators need to keep the speed, tension, and label pressure at optimal levels. Still, without premium labels from bevergage can label experts, you don’t have a chance.
Tons of New Sizes!
Today we print for many, many different can sizes. 16oz and 12oz are definitely most popular, but the 19.2oz can is coming on strong. A few of our brewery clients are going exclusively to the 4-pack of 16oz cans for all their packaged beer in 2021. No bottles and no other formats. Whatever you need, we can help. We add new sizes to our library every week.
Gateway Brewing is a wonderful community brewery. They had good success during COVID-19 by offering home delivery of their 16oz cans. We love working with smart, creative businesses that adapt and stay relevant in tough times. Check them out at gatewaybrewingpdx.com
Cider in Cans, Too!
Most of our beverage can labels are for beer – maybe that is changing. More and more we are seeing cider, mead, and CBD infused seltzers packaged in cans. This diversity makes it even more interesting for us. And the material choices are endless – clear, white, metallic – we lots of options to make your design pop off the shelf. And, with our very dense white ink, we can provide some amazing effects on clear and metallic substrates – ask us about them when you call with your next project.
The label hasn’t done its job until it gets into the consumer’s shopping cart and then into their cooler while still representing your brand image. This requires lamination. A laminate (lamination) is a thin layer of poly that is fused over the ink to protect from scuffing. Most bottles have a ridge or bumper designed into the profile so you never have the label rubbing against the adjacent label – this protection isn’t provided to cans. Cans are just a perfect cylinder with constant rubbing and scuffing. Without lamination, your labels will look horrible in the grocery cooler.
