Well Crafted Coffee, Well Crafted Labels

This coffee label packaging was designed locally by Holmberg Design. Dogwood Coffee Company is a small coffee roaster based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota (and generously present at our last studio party.) They source, roast and serve some truly amazing coffees. And what is especially unique to the experience of Dogwood Coffee is the single cup brewing. Visit them and always expect a well crafted, fully realized flavor. And be sure to take beans home in one of these delicious bags. This is the good stuff, these guys love crafting coffee as much as we love letterpress.

We printed these with two colors – a red and a very light gray /nearly blind ink for the diamond texture. They are printed on our house label stock which is Strathmore Writing, Ultimate White Wove. This label takes a stiff impression and has a bit of tooth and texture that adds to the artisanal quality of letterpress. They are kisscut two up on an 8.5 x 11 sheet. They are cleverly designed to be end user friendly with use of simple rubber stamp imprints specific to the roasted microlots. Overprinting the stamp on the letterpress imprint gives the surface another layer of texture.

Also see the “Reserve” coffee labels we printed previously (when Dogwood was still a part of Bull Run Roasting) also created by Holmberg Design.

  • Well design.. Innovative work..

  • nice solid!

  • Was this absolutely gorgeous printing done on the Heidelberg cylinder in your studio? I agree, the solid is NICE!!!!
    Great work by a dedicated crew!

  • Yes, this was done on a Heidelberg KSBA 18×23 letterpress. We’ve actually found laying down solids on label stocks can be frustrating due to the backer paper. The crack and peel paper on the back may leave a very slight distortion in the inked solid where that solid passes over the crack. A good stiff impression with heavy ink density helps to minimize this.

  • Since it does not require any wires, it is especially valuable to people who live
    in leased homes and apartments. The repair of the lock itself (apart
    from the occasional cleaning or oiling done by you) should be
    done by a professional. Make sure your kids know the rules about
    what to do when the doorbell rings.

  • The use of additional transmitters can be some of the best things
    to use when it comes to getting wireless pet barrier systems to work
    as well as possible. One of the advantages of wireless doorbells is that the end unit
    with the bell or chimes unit can be left mobile
    and taken from room to room, even into the garden;
    such is the ease of mobility, without being tied down literally to a set of cables
    and wires. There are also so many models you can choose between, there
    will unquestionably be a doorbell out there suitable for you.

  • Genuinely when someone doesn’t know after that its up to other users that they will help, so here it takes place.

  • With this device, it will not matter which room of the house
    you are in, you will definitely hear the door bell the first time
    your visitor presses on it. The repair of the lock itself (apart from
    the occasional cleaning or oiling done by you) should be done by
    a professional. Pick a wireless doorbell here at great price & you can be assured of great quality too.

  • You might even look forward to those door-to-door solicitors with the Swann MP3 DJ Doorbell ($49.
    Door – Bot is an interesting concept from BOT Home Automation. After setting up this
    type of system, each door will have its own transmitter, resulting in a different ringtone.
