FOOD & BEVERAGE LABELS
Custom Food Packaging Labels
More advertising channels are competing for consumer’s attention than ever before due to demographic shifts and changes in copies based on available ingredients.
Graphics, color, fonts, and label material make sure your product gets noticed. Food manufacturers have always relied heavily on the appearance of their packaging, however, timely delivery of product to the market with accurate, up to date and compliant information is also imperative.
The compliance issue is vital and there are FDA guidelines that a client must consider before developing a food label. All required label statements need to be present on the front label panel known as the PDP (Principal Display Panel). The PDP is the label section most likely to be seen by a consumer; the necessary items on a food label include the food name and the net quantity. For more details concerning the food label guidelines review the FDA’s Food Labeling Guide.
Custom Beer Labels
With the emergence of microbreweries and gaining popularity of craft beers, the demand for custom beer labels is growing quickly. After type and style of beer, the label is the most important factor when consumers are choosing which beer to purchase. Custom beer labels help make sure your beer is chosen when shoppers make that important buying decision.
Custom Liquor Labels
Your beer labels need to be able to withstand a cooler full of ice and a moist fridge. GCI uses high quality materials and adhesives engineered specifically for your custom liquor labels.
It’s very simple to create multiple label designs of the same size and print them all in a single run. Imagine introducing some complementary beer graphic designs to add “something different” when they’re side by side on the shelf.
Increase your shelf appeal, all while still perpetuating your unique brand with multiple custom beer labels. With digital label printing, the only limitation is your creativity – cost is no longer the driving force it has always been with traditional label printing.
Food and Beverage Labels Guidelines
Guidelines from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), including their Food Labeling guide (link to guide), the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) and the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) are important information sources for food and beverage labels on products and understanding the necessary requirements.
For example, if you’re producing beverages containing alcohol, you’ll generally have to incorporate the following criteria into your labeling:
- Brand name
- Name and addresses of bottler/packer/manufacturer/producer
- Net content
- Alcohol content
- Presence of artificial coloring and flavors
- Other additives/agents (such as sulfites)
- Government warnings

We also love working with clients to make their labels attractive and fun: boring labels will not grab attention and drive sales.

Taking care of you is the most important thing we do!
It has been a pleasure working with you all since 1997. I have placed many label orders with Graphic Communications Inc. and your product knowledge, customer service, prepress dept., print quality, and delivery has been exceptional. You have been there for me when I needed a fast turnaround, difficult applications, or my customer had no artwork and you guys re-created it perfectly! The staff at GCI has always been professional, courteous, and always willing to help. I am very happy with Graphic Communications Inc. and the high caliber of employees that work there. Keep up the great work!
Our customers' demands can change on a dime and Graphic Communications understands that and rolls with us helping to make us leaders in our industry. The team at Graphic Communications gets the job done just as quickly as we request it...incredible turnaround. Loretta and Bob at Graphic Communications are beyond a doubt the most cooperative and professional graphics team we've worked with while maintaining that personal touch.
The rolls look very nice. Thanks very much. I know our customer will be very pleased with the quality. The finished pouches will be shipped to New York next week then they will be forwarded to India to be used to package jewelry which gets shipped all over the world.
