The custom peel and reveal labels that we printed for Northern Monk brewery have been nominated again for another award!  This time the ‘Coffee Porter’ variation from the set of three are up for best ‘label’ in the 2016 Digital Printer Awards. The labels were one of four showcase pieces of work that supported our nomination for ‘Label Printer of the Year’ entry in the 2016 PrintWeek Awards and they have also been  nominated for best ’digital labels and packaging’ in this year’s Flexotech awards. 

Read why these Peel & Reveal Labels are so special!
The Northern Monk Patrons Project seeks to foster collaboration and community between artists, athletes and creatives across the North.
Northern Monk wanted a peel and reveal label that immediately showcased the photography skills of Tom Joy as well as highlighting the artistic profile and the Patron Project methodology inside the label.

Initially they came to us to request a standard peel and reveal using just white material. The CS team suggested using a silver polypropylene face instead to enhance the artwork and some other alterations to make the most of this special edition. 

The CS Labels team, led by our own Adam James, changed the middle left page to allow for the silver face material to shine through and create a metallic look. The labels are able to illustrate the photos in their glory on the inside, as well as conveying the project and brewing notes. The addition of the double sided silver is a special solution developed by CS Labels.

As you can see from this Twitter video and post and Instagram story the label has created a social feel-good buzz, as well as adding genuine artistic and community value. Peel and reveal labels do not have to just fulfil an ‘extra information’ role, they can add brand value too.

Key features:
·  These peel and reveal labels added artistic value as opposed to the traditional ‘extra information’ role.
·  Our clients trust in us meant a collaborative solution could be developed to the clients’ advantage.
·  High-level skills in the construction of the label. The addition of the silver on two sides of a label of this nature is a groundbreaking solution.
·  Label construction and design created a buzz on social media.
