Full-Color, High-Gloss Coffee Bag Labels

Rising Sun Coffee bag label

This coffee bean bag label by Rising Sun Coffee was expertly crafted to match the company's branding. The glossy label captures the light of the morning and softly wakes the consumer with the dark-to-light color scheme.

To differentiate between the company's various products, Rising Sun uses color. The green band pictured above is just one of the many colors used to represent roasts and blends. Other colors include blue, red, brown, purple, and more.

According to owner John W. Dilworth, "This way we can always use the same label and have an unlimited choice of color bands for the coffee."

Product used: OL500WS, a 4" x 3" rectangle on White Gloss Laser.
