If you’re a brewer, chances are you’ve experienced some challenges with beer sleeves along your journey. Sleeves definitely have their place in the market, but the packaging is limited in look-and-feel, has high set-up costs for the plates, requires large minimum orders, and can take forever to arrive. If you don’t time things exactly right, your brew could be going flat in the tank while you wait.
It won’t come as a surprise that Lorpon thinks labels are great—it’s right there in our name! But if you look at labels through our eyes, we think you’ll feel the same. Unlike sleeves, labels come in a variety of materials (50 of them, which is 49 more than sleeves), with designs that are limited only by your imagination. Small run batches or individual designs aren’t a problem either.
Unfortunately, actually getting the labels onto your cans has always been a sticking point (get it?), and it’s the one place where sleeves have bested labels. That’s why we’ve partnered with Sessions Craft Canning to offer brewers our full-service experience: The Beer Run.
What’s the “brew-ha-ha” about The Beer Run?
Put simply, we’re giving you more options than just sleeves. That may mean complimenting your current sleeve look or changing things up completely. Labels remove design limits, minimum orders, and high set-up costs. Most importantly, your beer won’t be sitting in a tank while you wait around to get your packaging together.
Let’s run this down. With The Beer Run, all you have to do is call us up and discuss your requirements. We’ll walk you through the look and feel of your product, including whether you want multiple versions. We get it: Variety is the spice of life. We’ll help you achieve the effect you want, with no minimum order—just ask for what you need and we’ll take care of it. And, because we’re printing on an HP Indigo, you know the result will be eye-popping. Did we mention our lightning turnaround? You can expect your labels within 7 to 10 days.
We’re bubbling over with excitement to tell you about this next part. When you label your beer with us, your printed labels go directly to Sessions Craft Canning where they’re applied to your product. From there, they go straight to the shelf, in three weeks or less, so your customers can enjoy a beer as fresh as its packaging.
Attractive, fast, cost-effective, and hassle-free—why wouldn’t you consider labels?
