After recently celebrating their 2nd birthday, Puss and Mew Distillery won a number of medals at the ADI International Spirits Competition, including SILVER MEDALS for BRANDING and SPIRIT EXCELLENCE as well as BRONZE MEDALS for SPIRIT EXCELLENCE. We are proud to say that we have been part of their packaging journey since its conception and launch. Puss and Mew Distillery is now a globally award-winning Gin brand that is testament to the dedication and hard work of founders Deb and Brett, who also contribute significantly to their local community with charity work and projects. With packaging being of utmost importance to the brand from Melbourne,= Australia, it was the beautiful designs by Studio Von that began our journey working closely with Deb & Brett. Originally coming to Read Labels and Packaging (now qlm label makers) for labels that would instantly do justice to Studio Von’s design and exude luxury on the shelf. The award-winning packaging comprises high-quality bottles adorned with highly specialised labels that allow the brand to achieve the transparent look for the bottle that they envisioned. A branded matt black high GSM card stock label on the front of the bottle has rounded corners and a textured finish. The embossed logo gives a high-end feel to the label frequently sought after for products in the wine industry and top-shelf spirits categories. The featured artwork on the product label at the back of Puss & Mew Gin labels creates the 3D look that brings the packaging design concept to life. This particular product label was carefully created by layering materials together to create a non-transparent label that shows the beautiful designs by Studio Von through the bottle, without exposing the product information label on the back of the high-quality bottle. Adorned with awards that recognise Brand Identity, Excellence in Packaging and of course taste and quality of their locally distilled Gins, the products themselves are easily recognised as premium quality on the shelf to customers prior to noticing the gleaming medals. However, we are thrilled to help share the announcement recently made that celebrates the magnificent collection of medals that now adorn the exceptional packaging of Puss & Mew Gin. The prestigious ADI International Spirits Competition, hosted by American Distilling and judged by discerning connoisseurs have in this year's awards adorned Puss & Mew Distillery’s Gin with the following medals: Three illustrious Gold Medals for Excellence In Packaging specifically recognising their Australian, Honey Coconut, and Navy Strength Gins. In a testament to their extraordinary brand identity, Puss & Mew Gin proudly took home five splendid Brand Excellence Silver Medals. This recognition was bestowed upon all their Gins, signifying the cohesive and captivating representation of the brand's essence across their entire product range. Adding further to their resplendent medal haul, Puss & Mew Gin garnered three distinguished Silver Medals in Spirit Excellence for their Australian, Navy, and Signature Gins. These remarkable creations, meticulously distilled and artfully infused with the finest…
As part of qlm group, Read Labels and Packaging has been helping Milkman Grooming Co build their brand with premium product labels and packaging for almost a decade! Milkman Grooming Co has been delivering luxurious men's grooming products for almost a decade with the support of Read Labels and Packaging (RLP). From the very first call to Ross at RLP, Jackee and Ben of Milkman Grooming Co knew they had connected with the right person for the kind of support and advice their family-owned business needed to produce product packaging that screamed quality product. The support they receive with a support team that takes their call whenever they need a little extra info, or help is the reason they have stuck with Ross for almost ten years for product packaging and labels. “It made all the difference when we started out, and the support still comes in handy as we introduce new products!” Jackee, Milkman Grooming Co. Being able to call their packaging partner and clarify just what product label materials will work for each specific product type enables the brand to move forward quickly and confidently when launching a new product. The boutique family-owned business has been succeeding with premium packaging that includes 3SS and product labels due to careful product planning and design. Ben and Jackee are currently working on a new product launch that requires a special touch, so they have paired again with Ross to create a new product label for a premium product under the brand. The new Milkman Grooming Co label for this particular product will include a HiBuild spot varnish, giving a raised texture to the elements it's applied to. Having restraint in the label design to exude luxury when the product is on the shelf was a key consideration for Jackee and Ben, something they learnt from years of working closely with their preferred packaging partner. Digital print labels are a great option for Australian brands like Milkman Grooming Co due to the smaller minimum orders and multi-SKU print runs that are available. They allow brands the freedom to trial new products in the market prior to making larger investments in products. Additionally, digital printing allows the brand to print specialised luxury labels without the need for high set-up costs, saving time and money. The limitations to design for digitally printed product labels and flexible packaging are minimal, meaning your brand can stay true to itself across every product type. As Read Labels and Packaging is now part of the qlm group, our clients are now enjoying the same high-level customer service with the addition of being able to rely on the qlm group for all their packaging needs, including flexible packaging, product labels, and carton packaging. With nationwide support, it is now even easier to source Australian-made packaging and labels. Contact us to learn more.
