Here's some quick breakdown on how this label is similar but differs from the previous 2 product labels I have:
All labels will be on white rounded corner rectangles with glossy overlaminate and waterproof.
The label will be 3.25" tall by 9" wide. Bavarian Gold will be printed with a 2rd color plate, unlike Cinder and Stoke, which used a single color and black. This raises the cost of the label production slightly, since a 3rd plate must be created before the run is made.
The bottle chosen is a stout bottle that's 7" tall just like the 5oz Woozy bottle, but fatter, with a short neck by comparison. I chose this, rather than the standard decanter style because it was unique, and on the shelf, the products are the same height, which helps in storage and creating a standardized height and look to the products if they are displayed in proximity, or on my booth display.
Bavarian Gold will feature the same heat index, at the same height and location as Cinder and Stoke, because it contains a re-formulated Cinder as an actual ingredient. (vinegar type was changed from distilled to match the recipe's predominant Cinder Vinegar base).
The challenge for this label is the inclusion of a 4th panel due to the width of the label. Because the 5oz woozy labels are 5.5", this leaves an additional 3.5". The 'front' was widened to 4" to not create such a large white 'frame' when viewed on a shelf from the front. This leads to significantly more black on the front panel, which was adjusted to keep the same 'stripe logo' design for a consistent brand.
This product includes Coconut oil and Tamari sauce, which contains soybeans. Both have to (by law) be printed below the ingredients list, which chews up an entire 2 line feeds of real estate. The ingredient list, while relatively basic, have lots of sub-components, which prevented me from using the same Nutrition Panel as previous labels.
Left panel = Romance Panel
Center Panel = Brand/Logo/Graphics
Right Panel = Nutrition Panel/Ingredients/Allergens
Back Panel = Recipe
Things I'm still on the fence about:
Recipe suggesting pairing product with an alcoholic beverage (IPA) - this could potentially be on a shelf at a public grocery store.
Trying to find out if it's legal to declare the allergens as "Contains Coconut and Soybeans" rather than simply "Nuts, Soy"
