Congrats to 2014 Wine Label Contest Winners

Every November we look forward to the WineMaker Magazine Wine Label Contest winners being announced. That’s because every year we pick out some of our best labels and send them in, with our fingers crossed.

Since wine labels and graphic design are our business, we’re always excited to enter our personal favorites and to see how they fare.

But I have to tell you, we’re also a little nervous each year. After all, there are a lot of creative winemakers submitting their favorite designs, too. Will ours hold up to the competition?

Retro Custom Wine Labels Ready for You to Customize

If you wait long enough, what was old will become new again. It was true for miniskirts, platform shoes, and skinny jeans. It’s also true for these retro custom wine labels.

We’ve noticed a trend in retro-looking wine labels lately on the wines we buy in the store. What’s fun is that they fit right in with today’s bright, colorful, creative labels! To honor this design trend, we’ve created several retro custom bottle labels and recently added them to our website.
