Bottle Wrap for Garage Project Mutiny on the Bounty

For Garage Project last beer release for 2016, they saved the best for last! Mutiny on the Bounty - a very South Pacific take on an Export Stout brewed with Breadfruit, roasted Plantain, Coconut and Tahitian Vanilla.

Tim Gibson of Flying Whities was commissioned to create the design and we were asked to print the bottles rather unique paper wrap. This project had a tight deadline as Garage Project needed to launch in the days leading up to Christmas.

To get the printing done in time, we split the project in half. In the final working days of 2016, we digitally printed and foiled several hundred wraps delivering to Garage Project in time to meet the Christmas demand. Then in 2017 we offset printed several thousand additional wraps and foiled and die cut each. Delivering the wraps to Garage Project in January 2017 ready to meet what will likely be a huge demand for the beer.

Bubba Hug Carton Production

Maria and Bill have created an interesting product, Bubba Hug a baby wrap that made nappy changing simpler for parents. They commissioned Matt at Think Packaging in Auckland to design the cartons structure and designed the graphics themselves.

They came to us to produce their packaging so they could get the product into the market. As a start up they wanted a cost effective carton that would look professional on the shelf.

After a couple of meetings and a round of prototypes we printed the design in black on a course textured craft carton board. We then computer cut and creased each carton to shape and hand assembled.

Bottle Label Artwork for Harvard Cider

We were introduced to the Harvard Cider team by Tim Gibson of Flying Whities. Tim had designed and illustrated some beautiful labels, but wanted us to review his work to make sure Harvard got the best result when printed in the States.

We converted his designs into reprographic ready label artwork, proofed to Tim (in Wellington) and the Harvard Cider team and on approval supplied the label artworks to the printer.

Testimonial from Chase Brooks, Co-Founder & Director of Marketing, Harvard Cider Co.

'Your work was literally the only thing that allowed us to get those labels expedited. Our printer told us straight up that if the artwork hadn't been so well prepared for print there is no way they would have hit our deadline. We are extremely happy to have brought you on to help us get this done right.'

Producing Garage Projects Tap Badges

When Garage Project launched 9 years ago they brewed on a 50-litre brew kit and described themselves as being not even a microbrewery, but time has changed all that.

Garage Project is now without a doubt one of New Zealand's preeminent breweries and produces beer in volumes to match.

We produce the tap badges Garage Project use to sell their beer in bars around the world. As at May 2020, we had produced badges for 135 unique beers, and for each we hold their art assets on file allowing for easy re-ordering.

Each tap badge is printed on an easy to remove self-adhesive vinyl that is then computer kiss cut to a circle shape ready to be given to the bar along with their keg order.

When Garage Project launched 9 years ago they brewed on a 50-litre brew kit and described themselves as being not even a microbrewery, but time has changed all that.

Garage Project is now without a doubt one of New Zealand's preeminent breweries and produces beer in volumes to match, distributing much of it in 330ml or 440ml aluminium beer cans.

We work with Garage projects graphic designers and illustrators and convert their designs into files that are ready for dry offset can printing. The art for each can is laid out to the correct positional guide and is then converted or re-drawn in vector format (essential for production).

Dry offset can printing is a challenging process to prepare artwork for, as up to 6 inks are laid on the can aluminium at once, the inks cannot overlap or even touch and due to production scheduling, deadlines can be tight and must be met.

As at February 2017, we have prepared the artwork for 37 unique beers, so we are starting to get the hang of it.

Brand Rollout & Print for Emporio Coffee

Emporio is one of the original Wellington coffee roasters and distributes boutique roasted coffee in over 50 cafes nationwide. There HQ is also based across the road from our Walter Street office which is handy.

When Emporio rebranded in 2016 they commissioned Gary Stewart at Wellington's Gas Project to create the brand identity, but then needed a team to layout the various menus, adverts and promotional items they needed on a day to day basis. This is where we came in and as we could roll out the design and print the various components they needed, we were a good fit.

Label Design & Print for Emporio Coffee

Emporio Coffee one of the original Wellington coffee roasters wanted to distribute its coffee in 250g & 500g retail pouches. They wanted a simple and effective label to close the pack and inform the consumer of grind, blend and weight.

In collaboration with Simon at Emporio, we designed a two piece label for each pouch size that could be customised by marking the grind on the top of the pouch.

To identify the coffee blend we produced an additional smaller label that can be hand applied on top of the larger grey label. This kept the product looking consistent on shelf regardless of who packed it (and how tidy their handwriting is) and lowered the print cost as the same base label could be produced in greater volumes and then customised as new blends are produced.

CGI Visualising for ParrotDog

Wellington's ParrotDog brewery came to us with an interesting problem. They were launching a new range of special release beers named 'rare bird'. Each beer in the range would be launched separately every couple of months and each beer bottle needed photography for marketing and promotional purposes.

Rather than commissioning a new photoshoot for each beer. We created a computer model of the beer bottle, mapped its textures right down to the refractive index of the glass and then within the CGI software wrapped the label around the bottle and rendered a photo-realistic image.

This approach was vastly more cost effective than doing separate photo shoots and also ensured that the lighting for each bottle was completely consistent despite being created months apart.

Garage Project Bastard Rye Label

Bastard Rye, a beer Wellington's Garage Project brewery launched in 2016 was without a doubt one of the most complex and unique beers brewed in the Garage. This very special release needed some special labelling to match and they commission Tim Gibson of Flying Whities to create the design.

The label design Tim came up with was rather complex and we were asked to convert the design into an artwork file ready to be passed onto Garage Project's label printers.

The front label utilised three different levels of embossing, two stages creating the raised emboss and one stage creating the lowered deboss area. To add definition on the label subtle ink shading was used and finally, the word Rye was foiled in gold.

We prepared the artwork, editing and optimising the file to get the best result on the press and to make sure Tim's design intentions could be achieved in production, the results speak for themselves.

White label print for graphic designers

We offer a white label printing service for graphic designers. This service allows graphic designers the ability to offer to print to their clients as a value-added service while allowing them to make a little extra profit on each project.

Here's how it normally works:

1. The graphic designer designs a printed item for their client such as a business card, once it been approved by the end client, the designer contacts us for a quoted price for the printing.

2. The designer then adds a fair margin such as 20-30% to our print price to cover their time, then they quote this price to their client, perhaps bundling it with their design costs.

3. We print the project and can either send to the designer or direct to their client.

4. Finally, we send an invoice to the designer for the print cost, while they invoice their client, being the print cost + the percentage margin the designer added.

Once all is paid the designer retains this margin as a little additional profit while saving their client the hassle of finding a quality printer.


Testimonial from Krishni Manek, Graphic Designer at Neo.

'Just wanted to say thank you so much for the business cards. They look amazing and it was a really good service. I'll definitely print with you again next time and recommend you to others.'

Designing & Printing custom pads for PartsTrader

PartsTrader is an easy-to-use online marketplace that allows automotive trade buyers to find the right parts, at the right price, at the right time from new and recycled parts suppliers.

PartsTrader wanted a pad that could be given to its client so that mechanics could more easily identify the automotive parts they needed and to encourage them to source these parts through the PartsTrader platform.

We created an A5 pad that did just that and because we were printing digitally and each page in the pad could be unique, we added a message on the last page of the pad that rewarded the user for placing 20 part orders and also messages throughout the pad to explain how close the user was to receiving the reward.

What does your heart beat for collateral

Arise Church began in 2002 and grew from a group of 7 people in a small dance and drama studio to a church of thousands in 8 locations around New Zealand.

Arise wanted to communicate with its members its goals for expansion and to achieve this designed a beautiful set of printed collateral including a brochure, envelope and bookmark, which we printed over a few weeks in September of 2017.

However, the most special part of the project was producing a display made up of over 275 hanging hearts some sized over a meter wide. These were printed on a rigid 3mm Paylite material and computer cut to shape, before being dispatched to 7 locations around the country. We were very pleased with how they came out.

Hallertau Resurgence Tap Badges

Hallertau asked us to produce a special gold foiled tap badge for the seasonal release of their Resurgence Strong NZ Pale Ale.

Hallertau wanted this to match the gold foiled finish of their bottle labels but it was not practical to apply gold foil to the removable self-adhesive vinyl that we produce tap badges from. So instead we started with a metallic gold vinyl, then printed several coats of white ink to mask out the areas of the badge that should not be metallic. Then we overprinted this white mask with the coloured background before kiss cutting each badge to shape. We were really happy with how they came out.

Folded Keg Collars for Heyday Beer Co

We are lucky enough to produce tap badges for quite a few brewery clients scattered across the country. Several of these clients needed a way to attach a tap badge to the keg during transit and we thought we could help.

We designed a folded keg collar, that can enclose the tap badge and protect it during transit. After a bit of testing we identified a suitable carton board that stands up to cold storage well and a keg collar shape that is easy to fold while attaching to the keg securely.

We showed a few clients the concept and both Epic and Heyday Beer Co quickly placed orders.

Promotional Printing for Promisia

We printed a pull-up banner and several hundred posters for Promisia and Stacey the client was kind enough to give us a testimonial.

"We received a slick promotional package from Colourcraft which was compelling so we thought we'd give them a go for a small print job, although we were very happy with our current print supplier at that time. Since then, we've entrusted them with key promotional printing and conference assets as their quality is excellent, let alone their customer service and attention to detail. The turnaround time is outstanding - as an example, Colourcraft had provided a print proof and completed our print job including delivery before another company had even managed to organise a print proof. If you have high expectations as we do, use Colourcraft."
