Dion Naturals - Hot Stamping

Dion Naturals - Hot Stamping

Hot stamping is a process in which foil is transferred to a material surface by a hot stamping die. The die is heated then sandwiches the foil into the material. This relatively simple process adds a decorative aspect to your label and can be incorporated into your label design as it has a sharp, crisp appearance. Hot stamping will create a slightly raised surface and depending on your varnish, a matte or gloss metallic finish. It can be applied to both smooth and textured materials, making it a highly versatile decorative option in the label printing world. In addition to using hot stamping as a decorative finish to create a high-end, luxury look, it can also be used as a security or anti-counterfeiting measure.

In house, we carry a variety of hot stamping colors including gold and silver foil. If you project requires a more specific color, you our team can assist picking out the perfect hot stamp foil.

Beverage Inspired Watch Packaging

Thirsty Watch

Thirsty Watch packaging design

Remember when we blogged about the underwater watch pouch packaging where a waterproof watch was actually sold submerged in water? Packaging innovation is more than the design of a label or shrink sleeve, and it involves the entire delivery of a product from the outer packaging to the marketing campaign. One French watch brand was looking to release an exclusive collection of brightly colored time pieces and named their company Thirsty Watch. Each watch is surprisingly packaged in a drink bottle and marketed as being a specific “flavor” depending on the color. For example, in the image above, the green bottle is kiwi, the pink bottle is dragon fruit, and the yellow bottle is papaya.


The almost four year old company worked with French design firm, Agence K2, to design the bottled watch packaging shown above. Each white base container has a show through center circle revealing the vibrantly colored watch held within. The cap and base of the container match the color of the watch and minimal text is printed above and below the show through circle for a clean design. To finish off the container, a small hang tag is included around the bottles neck with an image of the fruit being mimicked such as an image of a kiwi on the top left container. Consumers can easily lift off the top section of the container (including the cap and white body) and remove it to gain access to the timepiece.
