Vanity Barcodes

Vanity Barcodes

Pressure Sensitive Label Printing:

Label printing companies are beginning to see some fun and humor incorporated into the rudimentary design of the plain old barcode. Mic’s Chilli BBQ Sauce received a Gold bell award for packaging design in ICAD 2013 awards thanks to Steve Simpson, from Dublin Ireland! Here he has transformed the boring black UPC barcode into a visually, stimulating piece of artwork which also serves as a powerful marketing tool!

These Vanity codes can be printed onto flexible packaging, shrink sleeves, digital labels as well as pressure sensitive labels. Who knew they could provide both form and function!

Not only are the Bar Codes wonderfully wacky on Mic’s Chilli BBQ Sauce but each flavour of sauce has it own custom label printing and die line that cleverly incorporates an interesting lap idea as well as a fun cap seal, again making the ordinary, extraordinary!

Wine Label Printing:

Wine label printing has evolved into a sophisticated design category that lends itself to creativity that knows no bounds. The more unique & clever the use of simple materials such as custom die lines, spot varnishes and foil stamps, the greater impact its label has on the shelf.

The clever use of a custom die line make this pressure sensitive label designed for the Weninger Winery a beautiful example of the saying, ‘less is more’. This custom label printing with its simple, sleek and typographic approach is the perfect solution to fulfill the task of, ‘creating a unified label scheme that can be used for years ahead’ as well as to create an eye catching design that appeals to the young people of the Sopron wine region.
