Soar Print, a label and general commercial printer in Auckland, New Zealand, recently won first place in the Digital Print – Wine and Spirits category at the World Label Awards 2019. The winning wine bottle labels were commissioned by Vine Street, a New Zealand fruit wine producer, and were printed on an HP Indigo WS6800 press. The World Label Awards competition is conducted by the L9 Group of international label associations and is often termed ‘The Technical Oscars of the Label Industry.’ The 2019 competition named 27 winners and 21 honorable mentions in several categories.
Discussing the award, Mark Geeves, Color-Logic director of Sales and Marketing, said, “Color-Logic is pleased to have been a part of the Soar Print award, which demonstrates the value of designing with Color-Logic tools when producing metallics.
