Client Chat Series – When I spoke with Nader Naim at our client company, Cake Craft, his excitement and enthusiasm for the company, its growth, and its mission were very much on display. Cake Craft, maker of fondant and sprinkles and baker of (delicious) cookies, sits in a business park not far from that of SixB Labels. We started off our meeting with a company tour, but only after we had donned the face masks and hair nets required by Health & Safety regulations. We then walked through a sparkling, very modern production facility, and finished with a sit-down interview. Nader shared the following information about their business and how we have helped their growth since they moved to Garland, Texas.
Timing is Everything (Even for Label Printing!)
The Spring season is well underway, and it will be Summer again before we know it! And, because time flies and planning is key, it is never too early to start working on the product labels and marketing labels for your summer-themed goods and services. It is important to consider how and where your products might be used, in order to make the right decisions on the size, style, and materials for your labels and decals. Here at SixB Labels, we manufacture labels for a wide variety of items that make it possible for consumers to enjoy summer fun and adventures with ease and enthusiasm!
Some good news for companies and consumers looking to use eco-friendly materials in print production — Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified paper and environmentally responsible water-based inks have become readily available and economically viable! In this post, we will look at both the benefits of using water-based instead of solvent-based inks in label printing, and the benefits of choosing FSC-certified paper over conventional paper.
A Client Story— Over the years, it has been a real delight to help our client Sandy Korem with her label projects. Sandy is the owner/operator of our client company Festive Kitchen, a thriving catering and food-prep business. Her company has been praised by such publications as D Magazine and Park Cities People, and also won a number of awards, including the White House Food Service Medallion.
Since we started working with her, Sandy has shared with us a number of milestones in her career path in food prep and catering. She has also told us how her work with SixB Labels has made it easier for her to sell her products.
Client Chats Series — Our client company, Dallas Distilleries, maker of the Herman Marshall brand of Texas whiskies, hides in plain sight off the main road in Garland, Texas, amid sprawling warehouses in a business park. Behind an unassuming façade, fronted by a shop selling whiskey by the bottle, sits a cavernous space full of open-top cypress fermentation tanks and white oak casks, where a big gleaming pot still, like an engine from a steampunk movie, holds pride of place.
I participated in one of their weekend tours, full of history, chemistry and fun. We listened to an account of how the whiskey is made, sampled bottled products, including bourbon and rye, and tasted the sour mash as well as the white dog — the new whiskey before it is aged. Along with other customers, I got to fill, cork, and label the bottle of bourbon I bought. Then Herman Beckley, who leads the tours, sat down with me to share some more details of their company’s history and explain how their experience working with SixB Labels has helped them to showcase and sell their products.
In this blog post, we’re going to look at what makes a good logo design to help you get everything right before you go to print your labels. Here at SixB Labels, using my college degrees in graphic design as well as print engineering, I’ve printed more labels in nearly four decades than you probably could imagine. In that process, I have learned more than a little about what makes a successful logo design, and what the perfect logo should look like.
Easily Recognizable Logos
Folks have been talking about the death of trade shows for decades and yet they are still going strong. At SixB Labels we like to put the morbidity to the side and make ourselves available for more start-ups, as well as small businesses and global companies, and are going back to one of the largest annual packaging events, WestPack Anaheim, exhibiting in Booth 5154 from February 5-7, 2019 at the Convention Center.
Our focus for the 2019 WestPack trade show is essentially to be available for those businesses starting up and/or in a transition phase, unsure what their next step is, who could use some inspiration for their labeling operations, as well as for those businesses whose programs are established and open to another provider path. In all scenarios, we are available to be the labeling source for businesses' labeling operations, regardless of their company size or prospective order volume.
Client Chats Series — Talking with Erin Freeman from our client company, Good Vapes, a supplier of hand-crafted e Liquids and vaping hardware, which gave her an opportunity to share her vision and passion for her company. As she filled us in on its past, its current growth, and its prospects for the future, two important points emerged from her company story. These are the impact on her business of a fast-moving, ever-changing regulatory environment for her product lines, and the significant role that SixB Labels has played in the growth and success of her business.
Have you heard the phrase, "Outdoor Label" or "Outdoor Decal" and wondered what that meant beyond the literal meaning? As you might have already considered, labels are used in many environments, and SixB Labels provides custom products designed for the various needs of extreme indoor and outdoor situations. Our variety of labeling solutions meets the requirements of business, industry, and private consumers. This post provides more in-depth information on labels and decals for outside use.
We all live, work, and move within what has aptly been labeled the Universe of Things.
These things include an overwhelming amount of items that let us perform a vast array of different tasks. In the workplace, they are valuable to us, based not only on their original cost but on their utility in our work processes.
We are called on to track their movements, know their actual market value, maintain, repair and ultimately replace them, and keep them secure from damage and theft. Enter the universal solution to this multiplicity of tasks: Asset Labels! (Or, as they are also known, Asset Tags.) Here is a look at five noteworthy questions in understanding this type of label.
