Project Description

Reimagining Dusted Valley's (affectionately named) "little brother" label started with the winemaker's authentic story: an unquenchable thirst for adventure. Featuring vintage handcrafted maps, a true torn deckle edge (a unique feat, thanks to an excellent printer and paper supplier), and a bright metallic foils (ooh, shiny!) Boomtown found a new life on the shelf.

We wanted the label to appeal to all audiences, and elevate the premium feel of the brand, while still feeling authentic. The final combination of an elegant paper stock with the natural (not die-cut) torn edge, foils, and matching white cap brought Boomtown a more modern feel, and plays off the excitement the name inspires.

Production Lesson(s)

Most wine labels with a "torn edge" look just go with a die cut these days, but we wanted this one to be different. Thanks to some back and forth with our printer and everyone clinging to one sample that we found and liked, we were able to source this special pressure-sensitive label stock with a natural edge. Testing followed to get an accurate flood tint, proper trim since the edge varied by about a quarter-inch, foil stamp pressure and registration, and checking the adhesion. Overall a long process, but we're really happy with the result!”
