About Sis4ers Distillery

Latest Project - Spiced Rum Range

The premium, multi-embellished label was printed as 2-part set; front/back alternate on rolls.

We used Xeikon digital dry toner print technology (CX3), and multiple GM foiling and finishing lines for matt UV high-build and double-spot varnish areas, as well as the duty stamp varnish. A GM Flatbed Screen unit created the high-build and double spot varnish areas. The job was then run through our Ashe Slitting lines.

Our biggest challenges were the high build varnish areas and the lack of a “true border” due to the fine wispy lines in the artwork.

The label incorporates a selection of intricate processes to deliver a truly exceptional design giving added value to the product.

"When artwork came through, there were a few tweaks that were needed as the edges of the label had thin parts protruding out of the cut edge. These would have been impossible to die cut without tearing. We then applied a textured background outside of their original border to help frame the design which worked really well.

Pairing the changes with a raised varnish on the text delivered exceptional results!"

Helen - CS Labels

"As with all of the labels CS produce for our products the process is excellent. From the initial design they take us through the limitations of how the design concept can work on a label and also help us explore the possibilities to maximise the designs potential, recommending finishes, colours and other design aspects. It’s an evolving process that involves Helen and the CS team throughout to ensure the product looks its best and will stand out from our competitors.

We are thrilled with the Spiced Rum final label and CS Labels without doubt influenced so many aspects to help make it look as brilliant as it does! Major retailers and stockists placed orders simply on the basis of its design before any tasting samples were available, this proves the power of producing a stand out product with exceptional design and finish"

Lucy - Sis4ers Distillery

Mark Rudge at Wasted Apple was impressed with our consultative approach

“We were absolutely delighted. The move to clear was definitely right and I'm really pleased with the clarity of the print. CS Labels and the Sales team especially pulled out all the stops to get us the product on time and we are genuinely delighted. “
