I don’t drink, but I sure like to carry a bottle or two to a host when going to a dinner party, and I am quite liking these simple sheets that quickly turn a bottle into a gift while offering a story—a nice nod to journals, travel, and notes.

Project Description

You're invited to a friend's house. As a gracious guest you take bottle of wine, but you are no sommelier so you stand there at the door with that "naked" bottle wondering how this gift will be received. After all, it's not like you have a "Mouton Rothschild" with you every time … We thought about this problem and created these wraps. Now, with your bottle under our wraps, you can slyly point at your friends with cheap bottles of wine. ; )

The wraps are printed on both sides, so you can choose the way you wrap your wine. It's an easy and nice way to present a gift and avoid standard wine cartons or bags, which are often a bit boring …

Currently, we are producing several styles for different wine regions in Germany and Austria. Individual small print series are available for special events.

Production Lesson(s)

When we designed our WRAPS, the typography and the objects shown on the paper went through a lot of changes. Each wrap was test-printed a dozen times to check what would be seen on the outside, and what happens when you unwrap the bottle. This process took two months before we were ready to print, but we wanted to make sure the wraps were really perfect, and people would really like them.

We have discovered some people also using the wraps as a table mats for diner settings … another idea ; )”
