Caymus Vinyards uses our custom rub on transfers for the prototype wine bottle labels

Pacific Color Graphics is located in Pleasanton, California. They are a Commercial Printing company that offers printing & packaging, signage & digital printing, retail merchandising & POP, advertising specialties as well as marketing & design. They are also proud to be an Alameda County-certified Green Business.

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.

Image Transfers are custom dry rub-on transfer specialists. We make only one thing: custom rub down transfers for graphic designers, artists, and model-makers. A dry transfer (or rubdown) is an image printed on a translucent sheet. The image has a coating of adhesive on its back. The image is transferred from the translucent sheet onto another surface by applying light pressure in a rubbing motion. The dry transfer can be applied to any surface that is free of dust, grease or oil. Dry transfers are referred to as DRY because they are applied dry, without the use of water or solvents. A dry transfer is not a slip-off label or a water decal, instead, the transferred image appears as if it was printed directly onto the item. Our dry transfers are opaque because we back the colors with white, so our rubdowns can be applied to a surface of any color without changing the color of the rub-on transfer. We consider dry transfers a semi-permanent application. A top coat of clear lacquer can make them more permanent. Our production artists can match all Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors including Metallic. Standard transfers are semi-gloss but we also offer matte and uncoated finishes. We deliver within as little as 24 hours. -- Specialties: Custom Rub Down Dry Transfers, Art Gallery Signage & Museum Labels, Custom Transfers for Product Prototypes, Comps & Mock-ups, Dry Transfers for Scale Models.
