Letting Your Product Speak for Itself

Letting Your Product Speak for Itself

December 9, 2015


Lots of juices that you can buy in the store aren’t just juice—they’ve got added sugar and other flavours. Organic, all natural fresh juices are not only better for you, but taste better by far with the pure flavour of each fruit or vegetable. Nikita Ivanov concept for SINGULAR Fresh Juice that has a brand and label design just as simple as the product.

Each bottle of SINGULAR is small and clear, allowing the beautiful hues of the juices to be the first thing that buyers notice. Each label has a few holes in it, adding colour into the white, black, and blue and also demonstrating the beauty in each drink’s individuality and imperfections. A stamp of the fruit ingredient appears on the front of the label, created from the fruit itself, further emphasizing the raw and unique quality each bottle of SINGULAR has.

Gold is NOT the New Black

March 17, 2015


The world may never be the same after a minor-freak out over a dress that looked both blue and black and white and gold.

At Associated Labels, we promise we’ll never make you think you’re going insane over the colour of your label printing, pouch printing, or flexible packaging printing. Blue is blue and gold is gold, and in order to make sure that is always true, Associated Labels invests in cutting edge ink and colour matching technology to insure we are the leaders in the label printing and packaging industry.


Our label printing facility is the first in Canada to incorporate the Pantone Digital Library,  X-Rite IFS and Color IQC colour matching system. “This program reviews and analyzes every aspect of colour operations— from preflight, file preparation and proofing, to ink formulation and mixing, and process control in the pressroom. This creates total quality management based on industry best practices and procedures that drive consistent and repeatable colour.”

Associated Labels is proud to announce its partnership with Sun Chemical, the largest ink supplier in the world.


Associated Labels uses X-Rite Ink Formulation Software which provides a fast, accurate and consistent ink formulation, storage, approval and retrieval solutions for flexographic, gravure and screen-printing inks. It formulates any colour from the Pantone Colour Book or library consistently and accurately.


Whether approving production samples or finished goods, Associated Labels employs the X-Rite Color IQC for colour control. It’s the industry’s most complete set of quality control features, which includes: colour standards, tolerances, and measurement conditions.


All inks at Associated Labels are mixed using an automated digital dispensing system that offers the highest degree of colour accuracy possible, batch after batch.

End of the day, this all means you’ll never have the same problem as @swiked did on Twitter:

So I just looked at this like, it’s blue and black obviously and all my friends were like no it’s blue and gold. Now I’m super confused, what is eyesight?

Designer Jane Koo, How Do You Doo?

Oh man! Label Love is a real thing!

Let us introduce Jane Koo, a designer, illustrator, and Best Coaster (her words) aspiring to create bright and ebullient work. Jane says, “I call both Seoul and Vancouver my home, which means that I am extremely well-versed in both ends of the Pacific Ocean but also have multiple gaping holes when it comes to the ’90s Pop Culture references.”  Yada, yada, yada…

We originally met Jane when we printed labels for her civic election loving project Count Me In, Vancouver. One look at her work and label designs and our hearts exploded! We’ve commission Jane to design what we think may be the cutest Valentine’s Day stickers (better known as labels where we’re from) on earth!

In the month of February, we be packing yo boxes and invoice envelopes like romantic gangsters… if you find some Label Love you can thank Jane Koo and her adorable brain.
