Rob Edwards, of Pacific Color Graphics, needed foil transfers. Rob told us:
“We used these for prototyping packaging for “The Wine Group”. They like to get actual samples of finished product to make their final packaging/labeling decisions so each one of these was handmade. When the proper colors of materials couldn’t be found we custom painted capsules to get the effect they were looking for.”
Check out two photos Rob shared with us that fulfilled the need for that finished product look.
Wine labels take prototype design to another level. Some bottle labels are quite detailed and a lot of our time is spent on hot stamping.
Rick Roese, of Caymus Vineyards, needed wine labels for marketing. Foils are commonly found on their product. Foils are usually only available by hot stamping. Hot stamping is a costly procedure and not done quickly. Comps can be done easily using foil transfers. The prototypes realistically reflect what the labels will look like after production.
Caymus Vineyards is also in California. They were just featured in a Wall Street Journal article talking about Travel Buddies and wonderful places to visit. In 1971 Charles Wagner launched Caymus Vineyards.
The Wagners produced their first vintage in 1972, consisting of 240 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon. Since then, Caymus has focused its efforts on the production of quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Today’s production is 65,000 cases. Caymus Vineyards remains 100% family-owned by the Wagners. They offer a relaxed, intimate tasting experience on their beautifully landscaped grounds in Rutherford, California.
