FAQ Design Services

Can you do colour and /or black and white graphics for labels?
Yes, the colour chosen for labels is very personable is usually influenced by the product it is going on. Consultation with our graphic artist and discussion will help deliver the best option.

What are the best colours to use on labels
Choosing your colours is greatly influenced by the market in which you compete.  It is worth checking out the competition and talking to us.

Example: If your product is a luxury type of chocolate then using a mass of yellow and red on the label will not convey this to potential customers. Colours here would be rich and soft to create a sense of quality. If you are marketing a low cost product in a very competitive market then you need to bright cheerful colours to convey value for money.Good labelling sells, but good labels need to be carefully designed.

Why use colour if it’s more expensive?
Coloured labels are required if you want to:

a. use a picture on a label

b. if you require a more decorative label

c. the company logo is required

d. draw attention to you product

How long does it take to have some labels designed?
Normally this would take 2 to 3 weeks. As proofs would be generated and trialled to see how the label looks on the product. If there are a family of labels required then this would take longer as consistency throughout the range would need to be managed

Do you have a briefing document you use with your designer?

Should I always add my name and logo to the label? 
Yes. Your label helps sell your product so it is important customers can identify with it. If they like your product then they will recognise it (and hopefully buy it) by the branding and logo on the label.

Will new labels help my sales? How?
Good labelling will help you sell more products. It is your way of communicating with the customer. It’s your silent salesman. Last chance to speak to the custoemr before they buy yours or someone else’s. Make sure you use it to its full potential.
