Creating a label that perfectly reflects a bottle of wine and attracts attention on the shelf can be expensive.  At Elite Label we understand that you don’t want to sacrifice quality for a cheaper price. That’s why we have come up with 5 easy ways to cut down on costs without lowering your label standards.

  1. Stock Tooling

One way to help lower costs is to use one of the standard die cut tools available at Elite Label. Die cuts are stamps that cut out shapes, like the shape of a wine label, and because each label is different most need specially built custom die cuts. By choosing one of our in stock die cut tools you won’t have to pay for a custom part, saving approximately 300 to 500 dollars.

  1. Early bird gets the worm

It seems like an obvious solution but many don’t realize that by getting the ball rolling early you can save money on your labels. By creating a production plan and meeting with a designer early it can save on rush fees and a creative plan can be made that finds alternate solutions at low prices.

  1. Materials 

Certain materials can be expensive when manufactured in large quantities but sometimes there are alternatives that can cut costs while producing a similar look. Elite Label uses a special printing technique to create vibrant one-of-a-kind metallic colors for a lower price.

  1. Bunching

When we refer to bunching, we mean printing the labels for all varietals during one print run. Combining multiple label versions into one print job is an efficient way to save money as well as time.

  1. Communication

Another important aspect to keep in mind when choosing a label design is to communicate with project partners. Before committing to a design, be sure to review the original label concept and get feedback from vendors, partners and the printer to make sure that everyone is on board and that the design is possible and within budget.
