In a crowded market segment, your beverage labels give you a competitive advantage

Admit it. You’ve purchased a craft beer, bottle of wine or even a bottle of water based on the label. So have lots of other consumers. That’s why your beverage label must be flawless, featuring perfect color matching, accurate placement and perhaps foil or specialty paper. It also needs to be durable, enable lot code printing and perhaps private labeling. In the case of water bottles and milk bottles, your beverage label must stand up to a flexible container.
