Printed Labels for Joseph Heler

We have recently printed those fantastic looking, printed, self-adhesive labels for Westminster Cheese. Highest quality packaging for the highest quality cheese.

Joseph Heler’s cheesemaking story dates back over a century when Joseph’s grandmother started the family tradition by making one whole Cheshire cheese every day in the family’s farmhouse – Laurels Farm. This cheese-making expertise was passed down through the generations to Joseph Heler himself. The company still produces all their cheese by hand, on open tables. They still use only the finest local milk, sourced from specially selected dairy farms. And they still treat each individual block of cheese we make with the same care and attention as when the Heler family’s cheese-making tradition began over a century ago.

We applaud their craftsmanship, as we pay just as much attention to labelling. Our labels are produced on the finest flexographic presses, by experienced operators. We use high-quality materials and UV inks, including beautifully rich golden, silver and metallic inks. They are quality checked, carefully packed and shipped, to reach customers in the quickest turnaround times. To find out more call us on 01978 664544 or email sales@etiquette.co.uk.

What you need to know about changes in labelling after Brexit.

As we all know the UK has now left the EU.

This will affect many different aspects of our lives. Within the labelling industry, there will be some things that will require your attention – to make sure the labels are reflecting all the changes in the law.

All the information you need is gathered neatly on this website. Here are some of the important points:

You must not use the EU organics logo from 1 January 2021 unless:

  • your UK control body is authorised by the EU to certify UK goods for export to the EU
  • the UK and the EU agree to recognise each other’s standards (called ‘equivalency’)

Contact your control body to stay up to date.

If the UK does not reach an equivalency deal with the EU, you cannot export organic food or feed from the UK to the EU.

You can continue to use your UK organic control body logo.

Read more about trading and labelling organic food from 1 January 2021.

EU emblem

You must not use the EU emblem on goods produced in the UK from 1 January 2021 unless you have been authorised by the EU to do so.

EU health and identification marks

On products of animal origin (POAO), you must replace the EU oval health and identification marks with new UK health and identification marks.

Country of origin labels

UK food must not be labelled as origin ‘EU’ from 1 January 2021.

Clear synthetic labels – the power of transparency.

Polyethylene is the most common plastic, with polypropylene in the second place. Both have been around for a very long time. Polyethylene was first synthesized by the German chemist Hans von Pechmann, who prepared it by accident in 1898 while investigating diazomethane. First industrial production started in 1939. Propylene was first polymerized in 1951.

They are both widely used in the packaging and labelling industry due to their hard-wearing qualities, their resistance to water and chemicals and their flexibility for squeezable packaging.

But while the practical aspects of using synthetic materials are unquestionable – what about the esthetics?

I have been curious to see how popular this type of packaging is at the moment and what is the deciding factor for using it. Is there a rule that applies? What content silently screams for a see-through label? How can you be sure this is for you? I looked at many different products and here is my conclusion:

  1. Show off the colour. If you have a range of beautifully coloured drinks or paint bottles that is a fantastic way to take advantage of it. While beautifully designed, printed labels can be very eye-catching – transparent label with bold, vivid colours behind it truly draws attention to itself. Here are some Raw Press and Eaten Alive Smoked Sriracha examples of that. :
  2. Show off the glass. Shape, texture – whatever it might be – a transparent label will not create a distraction from it. Here is a good example.
  3. Show off your style. Sometimes it just makes sense – clear label corresponds with the brand, name or with the idea behind it. It certainly does for the Sea Glass bottles, where the matt transparent label brings to mind the sea glass pebbles to mind.
  4. Show off your modern or quirky design. Sometimes you just want to be different. Here is a great example of how can this be achieved.

I’m sure there are many more examples and reasons, but those were the main trends I have noticed. If you can think of other examples, please comment below – I would love to see them.

Februdairy has arrived!

Februdairy campaign has been born two years ago to support the dairy industry and promote dairy products on social media.

It has been also a way to fight back against the attacks: “There’s been a lot of bad press around the dairy and meat industry,” says Abi, a supporter of the Februdairy campaign who works for an agricultural supplier in Sussex. “People tend to read things online and generalise farmers into the idea that they all run farms in an intensive factory way.” For her, the movement is needed to “make people see that there is so much propaganda.”

It seems that the trending hashtag has now been hijacked and used mainly by animal activists as a way to discourage people from using dairy products by including “shocking” facts and videos. Some of them emphasise cruelty and inhumane conditions, some undermine the nutritional value that dairy products provide.


Farming community responds with myth debunking articles. “Some myths relating to dairy production are difficult to refute because they contain a grain of truth, others because they are so ridiculous it’s difficult to take them seriously,” says Jude Capper, livestock sustainability consultant.

Whether you are a supporter of Ferbrudairy or stand against any animal products – we can help with your labels! We offer you a wide range of materials to choose from (100 % vegan) and environmentally friendly UV inks.

What are the colour trends for 2020

We wanted to find out what colour trends will be style in 2020. We have done our research and wanted to share that with you! We have looked into different aspects and navigated across a variety of platforms to see what their predictions are for the upcoming year.

First place we turned to was The Pantone Color Institute. They have recently announced PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue as the colour of the year 2020.

What they have to say about this choice is: “Instilling calm, confidence, and connection, this enduring blue hue highlights our desire for a dependable and stable foundation on which to build as we cross the threshold into a new era. As technology continues to race ahead of the human ability to process it all, it is easy to understand why we gravitate to colours that are honest and offer the promise of protection. Non-aggressive and easily relatable, the trusted PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue lends itself to relaxed interaction. Associated with the return of another day, this universal favourite is comfortably embraced. “

We have also checked what Shutterstock’s predictions are. In their opinion “Lush Lava #FF4500, Aqua Menthe #7FFFD4, and Phantom Blue #191970 shades will dominate 2020 and showcase the trend towards maximalism and saturated hues.” Shutterstock also have very interesting tools available if you are having problems match your colours and finding the right one.

We also look at a blog post at 99designs platform, and they seem to think, that glowing neons, as well as futuristic and bold designs will still be a strong favourite.
Vintage-inspired colours enhanced with modern elements are a good choice. Dark colour schemes, monochromatic colour palettes and meaningful colour associations will remain popular as well.

They also say: ” First impressions are everything, and colour can often make an impression even before a shape, a word or a spelled-out message. In a consumer-driven culture, colour can make or break a brand persona.”

So choose wisely and if you have any trouble making your design decisions give us a call on 01978 664544 or email sales@etiquette.co.uk.

It’s Alive! – Digital Labels for Eaten Alive Raw Fermented Products

We have been a label supplier for Eaten Alive for some time now and we are incredibly proud of their success! Their healthy, delicious, raw fermented products are becoming increasingly popular due to the health benefits they provide along with an original and intense flavour. Here’s a few words from their website about the fermentation process:

“Fermentation is simply a way of transforming and preserving fresh produce. By using lacto-fermentation, we’re preserving fresh ingredients at their best and creating live products that require a little careful direction to maintain consistent flavour and texture. ‘Lacto‘ refers to lactic acid bacteria, the myriad bacteria species that convert the natural starches and sugars within vegetables into lactic acid.  Rather than adding acid in the form of vinegar (pickling), the bacteria produce their own acid, achieving a lesser degree of preservation than vinegar pickles, but far surpassing them in flavour and health.”

The labels are digitally printed on a synthetic material to give them durability necessary with this type of product and the colours we achieved are fantastically vibrant and rich.
