Thatchers Orchard Cut
This September, the Thatcher family branched out into the spirit business with their Thatchers Orchard Cut apple gin. Thatchers is a UK-based cider maker with over 100 years in the business. Their passion for their orchards and cider making is apparent and translates to their latest endeavor.
Thatchers Orchard Cut
Crafted with cider from Thatchers’ Katy apples, this limited edition gin required exceptional labels to match. CookChick Design was enlisted to bring this product to life, including the concept, brand name and packaging. They based their concept on the orchards themselves, the foundation of the business. The label was designed to look like a cut in the tree, effectively shown by using real wood material for the label. The wood grain and texture of the material starkly contrasts against the smooth glass of the bottle. Simple fonts were used in black, creating a stamped look, letting the material stand out and the product shine through. In the spirit of firsts, Thatchers’ first foray into gin making, has also given them the title of being the first spirit brand to use a full wrap real wood label.

Dogfish Head Rebranding
Dogfish Head, a craft beer company based out of Milton, DE has not changed their label design in the 21 years they have been in business, until now. Seven ales will get the new look to start, with additions later on in the year. Many beers with previously contracted customer artwork will remain the same. The new designs are the result of a partnership between Interact Boulder and Dogfish’s design team. They worked to create uniform look throughout the brand that also stayed true to their “off-centered” mission.
Dogfish Head Rebranding
The brand identity has been maintained through the Dogfish Head logo, a shark surrounded by a grainy oval. You will find the funky serif font remains the same as well and can be found on both the bottle label and the carton. A thicker, textured paper is now used for the bottle labels in combination with a matte finish and rich colors. The high quality of the product is further showcased by large, vibrant images of the rare ingredients used in that specific beer. The images are placed directly to the right of the label, highlighting the flavor.

This limited edition wine is the result of a project among friends. The inspired label design is thanks to Diego Ballester, a designer with more than 15 years of experience in the wine industry with clients throughout Argentina, Chile, the US, Brazil, Spain and Mexico. His experience is apparent in his latest label creation.
A, what some may call simplistic drawing is anything but, when brought to life by multiple printing effects. The pebbled material gives the first element of interest to this label. You are then able to point out a silver foil accenting the curves of the waves, blue gradients giving them depth and embossing giving them dimension. A white folded paper boat image keeps the design from becoming too dark and heavy. And the final piece of the puzzle is the name, “Barco.” It pops in a bright white, with embossing, and the font inspires visions of Christopher Columbus sailing across the seas or what you may expect to find on a treasure map.
For the majority of the population, wine purchases are based on label design. This label invites the consumer to engage with the product, to reach out and feel the texture. Do you have questions about developing a label for a wine product? Contact Dion Label Printing, and request a quote today!

Gillian's Chocolate Brownie & Whoopie Pie Packaging
Consumer awareness of the gluten-free market has risen tremendously in the past ten years and has happened to coincide with Cumberland Farms’ brand make-over. In addition to a new image, they now offer quality foods and desserts. This August, they launched their first Gluten Free Program and now carry Gillian’s Brownies, Whoopie Pies and two sandwiches. This is a big win for Gillian’s Foods and the gluten-free community as Cumberland Farms has almost 800 locations nationwide. If you happen to visit one of these locations, you can’t miss the bright labels associated with these desserts.
The paper labels have a nostalgic look, made in part by the primary color palette with faded vertical stripes in the background and with the decorative text. Gillian’s logo is placed at the top center of the label. If you look closely, you will see that the circular logo is actually a stalk of wheat with a “no symbol” layered over, it is finished off with an ornamental “G”. Gillian’s has made the most of their label space by including all of this and the nutrition facts and ingredients on one front label. The clear, clamshell container allows a tempting look at these delicious treats.
Dion Label Printing has printing capabilities for many different kinds of food labels, including refrigerated, frozen and dry products. Contact us today to speak with a representative!

Companies with a high volume of recurring customers would not achieve their level of success without top-notch organization. For the past 23 years, Dion Label Printing has confidently placed their customer paperwork and organization system in the careful hands of a Customer Care Coordinator. Currently working as our Customer Care Coordinator, Linda Casey provides the Dion Label team with a host of invaluable skills, including a keen eye for detail. Whether she’s pulling plate envelopes or working on special projects for customer service representatives, her organizational proficiency is never lacking. A multi-talented professional, Linda has also worked at Dion as a proofreader, performed data entry, and currently fulfils a second role as our receptionist. Responsible for larger projects, including the revamping of our entire filing system, she has frequently demonstrated that there is no job too big or too small for her to complete.
Perhaps one of the most refreshing aspects of Mrs. Linda Casey is her outgoing personality, which not only assists in her day-to-day customer interaction, but makes her a delight to have as a part of the Dion Label Printing team. Aside from her seemingly endless task list, Linda selflessly dedicates a portion of her time to work with the Dion Spirit Committee, a group that works to improve employee morale throughout the company. Outside of the office, Linda is an avid camper and cooking enthusiast. A true master of her craft, Linda frequently reiterates, “do what you do, do well”.

Steve's Ice Cream Dairy Line
Ice Cream, summer’s all-in-one taste bud appealer, appetite appeaser, and personal cool down method. In a market that should include an array of different flavors and ingredients, the generic chocolates and vanillas of the world are becoming all too prevalent among the shelves of local grocery stores. It’s time for us to say no to boring flavors, ditch the plain cardboard packaging, and pick up a pint of Steve’s Ice Cream. Since 1973, Steve’s has crafted delectable frozen dairy concoctions, further enhancing their dessert food with “mix-ins”, and eventually reaching nationwide distribution. With innovative dairy and non-dairy flavors such as Manhattan Cherry Chip and Burnt Sugar Vanilla, one would assume (and assume correctly) that their product label would be equally inventive.
Steve’s decided to drop the typical cardboard packaging used with most ice cream products, and opted to utilize a clear container, giving their customers a preview of their frozen treats. Their logo, “Steve’s Ice Cream” is displayed in front and on top of the container using a unique combination of a white font and turquoise background. The turquoise continues along the border of the front and top labels, which utilize a secondary black or white background to display the flavor name. White and black fonts are used in the majority of the text, while the flavor itself will typically be shaded with its corresponding color (i.e. the “Cherry” in Manhattan Cherry Chip is shaded red). On the back of the container, the consumer will find a description of the ice cream flavor, as well as social media information. Aside from the labels found on the front, top, and rear of the container, the remaining surface area surrounding the pint is covered by a clear label material. Nutritional information can be found on the left and right side of the packaging.
