Working with designers leads to some beautifully crafted work getting on Blush Publishing’s presses. So when Steve and Chris from United Creatives asked them to print these Whisky labels for their client Artisan Scotch Whisky makers Compass Box Whisky Company, they knew they were getting involved in something exciting.
The labels were letterpress printed on Blush’s vintage presses in one colour onto a beautiful uncoated label stock. The labels also required a die cut shape which Blush decided to ‘kiss-cut’. This means cutting the shape out of the top sheet of the paper enabling the label to be peeled off the backing sheet in one piece ready to be applied to the bottles.
