World Bee Day

World Bee Day - Honey Labels by Etiquette Labels.

World Bee Day is celebrated on May 20. On this day Anton Janša, the pioneer of beekeeping, was born in 1734.

Bees and other pollinators, such as butterflies, bats and hummingbirds, are increasingly under threat from human activities.

Pollination is, however, a fundamental process for the survival of our ecosystems. Nearly 90% of the world’s wild flowering plant species depend, entirely, or at least in part, on animal pollination, along with more than 75% of the world’s food crops and 35% of global agricultural land. Not only do pollinators contribute directly to food security, but they are key to conserving biodiversity.

To raise awareness of the importance of pollinators, the threats they face and their contribution to sustainable development, the UN designated 20 May as World Bee Day.

The purpose of the international day is to acknowledge the role of bees and other pollinators for the ecosystem. Beekeepers and nature conservationists would like to ask everybody to help improve the conditions for bees, thus improving conditions for the survival of people. No major steps are needed; what counts is each and every action that facilitates the existence of bees.

There is a few simple things we can do:

  • planting a diverse set of native plants, which flower at different times of the year;
  • buying raw honey from local farmers;
  • buying products from sustainable agricultural practices;
  • avoiding pesticides, fungicides or herbicides in our gardens;
  • protecting wild bee colonies when possible;
  • sponsoring a hive;
  • making a bee water fountain by leaving a water bowl outside;

These great products contain Argan oil (which is full of fatty acids and powerful antioxidants, such as vitamin E, that have been shown to have benefits for your scalp and hair) and Brazilian Keratin (which is a compound of proteins and the essential structural components of the skin, hair and nails of both humans and animals). Both those ingredients are extremely popular in beauty regimes and skincare products.

6 steps to choose the right colour scheme for your label

6 steps to choose the right colour scheme for your label

We have reached the last part of this series. At this point, you have a good insight into the design process – the final touch is now choosing the right colours to go with your concept.

Just like the previous blog posts – this one also aims to give you some general knowledge and help you to make a better decision. There are simple steps you can take to make sure you are not making a bad one!

  1. Start from black and white. Make sure your design works in black and white before you start experimenting with colour.
  2. Know your audience. Find out as much as you can, about your target audience – if your product is aimed at teenagers, you will have to research current trends and find out what is popular right now, including colours. You can take inspiration from fashion magazines, tv shows, popular apps, even toys.
  3. Read about colour psychology. Certain colours have been proven to have an effect on our minds, that we might not even realise. For example, we connect the colour blue with feelings of calmness, peace and trust, while the colour red is exciting and daring. Think about what you want your label to say, then find the right colours to help you convey that message.
  4. Aim for legibility. Avoid clashing colours or colours that are too similar – that will make it harder to read. After all, the labels main goal is to inform. Avoid using too many colours.
  5. Go for simplicity if you can. The easiest way to achieve harmony is to use a monochromatic colour scheme. That way you are less likely to overuse certain colours or create a distraction. Use neutral colours like white or grey to balance your design.
  6. Visit colour scheme websites like Colorhunt or Adobe Color to search for specific combinations. You can test them and adjust according to your requirements. It’s a good starting point if you’re struggling.

Those 6 simple steps should help you achieve better design and more sophisticated final result. If you are in doubt or need some advice you can always talk to our design team. Give us a call on 01978 664544 or you can email us at sales@etiquette.co.uk

4 basic rules to create high-quality labels

4 Tips on how to achieve a high quality label design

We usually can easily and fairly quickly distinguish between high and low-quality products. From cheap socks and toys to tech gadgets and cars – we know what to expect from a product by the way it is presented to us. It might not be always beneficial, but we do judge a book by it’s cover!

That’s why when designing a label, you have to imagine it on the product, and on the shelf. The competition is fierce.

There are several aspects of quality in the design you can analyze, that will help you to achieve to best results:

  1. Quality illustration/images. This might sound a bit obvious but… use good images. If you are unsure what images are good – do a bit of research, talk to potential customers about it, check what your competition is up to. Does your illustration/image stand out? Is it aesthetically pleasing? is it original? Is it in harmony with your brand/logo? (We’ll discuss logo itself in a separate article) The image above is an exaggerated example of this dilemma. Whilst the funny-looking aliens are not a bad idea in itself – the level of skill used here is clearly very low, there is little attention to the background and overall impression is that the product isn’t very good. The other label has been composed using free elements and free fonts (I rely on Google fonts and Graphic Burger a lot) but you can get ready to use graphical elements in very reasonable prices from many online creative markets.
  2. Quality font. We have discussed how font matters in another post (please have a look) but we have not mentioned font pairing – it’s another thing to tackle. The simple solution is to use one type of font, just use different weights or caps to keep the design visually more dynamic. Test different font side by side before you make your final decision. You can also use the pairings suggested by Google fonts.
  3. Image resolution. Image resolution is the detail an image holds. Higher resolution means more image detail.  If you are unfamiliar with this topic – it’s probably something worth looking into. It simply means that you can take a small picture and make it large by stretching it. If you are using a low-resolution image it can ruin the label no matter how beautiful it is. It will be pixelated and will look very unprofessional and amateur.
  4. Quality of print. If you’re planning on printing the labels yourself use good quality paper and check your printer settings are set to the highest quality print available. Depending on the quantities of labels required you might want to get in touch with a reliable label printing company. In general, you can choose digital labels for smaller quantities and flexoprinting for large runs. They have higher origination cost but are cheaper long term.

There is plenty more to say, but following those 4 basic rules will undoubtedly improve your design.

If you are having doubts about it and would like a professional expertise, you can contact us here at Etiquette on 01978 664544 or email sales@etiquette.co.uk.
