Label artwork is a powerful way to communicate your brand. With the right design, your label can be one of the first things consumers see when they purchase your product. It also can give your brand an identity that helps establish trust and trust is the best way to build a customer base. In this article, we’ll look at the different types of label artwork, how to create them, and how to use them.
Creating a 3-dimensional plaque for label artwork
A 3-dimensional plaque is a great way to display your label artwork. This style of plaque can be made from different materials such as wood, metal, or glass. Typically, these are placed next to the label artwork. They are able to be mounted using a small hole at the top. If you’re interested in creating your own, you can find plenty of ideas on the internet.
To make a 3-dimensional plaque, first decide whether you’d like to use a wooden plaque or a metal one. Wood plaques come in several varieties, such as African Mahogany, Cedar, Redwood, or Oak. You can also choose from a variety of different styles, such as painted, carved, or engraved. In addition, you can customize the plaque’s colors or font to match your logo or brand.
Next, you can start designing your own plaque. Use the TYPE gallery page to get some ideas. There you’ll find information about a wide range of styles, including 2.5-D relief, engraved, and painted. The TYPE page can also be used to find out how much a plaque will cost. For more detailed information, you can enter a key word into the search box on the right side of the gold masthead. Once you have the desired style in mind, you can look up the retail price for that size and style.
To create a plaque, you’ll need a few tools. These include a 3D printer, a “slicer” or “fingerprinter” (both of which can be downloaded for free from the Internet), a 3-D modeling software, and a laser cutter or engraving machine. All of these are available from TinkerCAD. Using these tools, you can easily create your own plaque for your label artwork.
Press proofs vs art proofs
In commercial printing, press proofs are a type of test print that are used to confirm the accuracy of colors, content, and layout. These prints are provided by a printing company at the request of the customer.
Press proofs are printed on real label material. This allows a customer to see how the label looks on the actual product. They are not cut to size, and are shipped overnight.
Art proofs are also available for viewing. They are typically produced in a PDF file and are separate pages. It is important to remember that they are not a complete reproduction of the final label order. However, they are very helpful for gauging the point-of-sale look of a label.
The main difference between press proofs and art proofs is the material that they are printed on. Press proofs are generally printed on label material with a liner. During the final printing run, the label will be cut out.
Artist proofs, on the other hand, are a copy of a photograph outside of a numbered edition. Historically, they were highly sought after by collectors. Depending on the number of artist proofs created, they may be sold for a lower price. Typically, they are numbered, but can also be left open.
Both press proofs and art proofs are designed to help customers test the labels’ fit on containers. Art proofs are made using a different material than press proofs, and may have embellishments or other special finishing options.
Both are important to the label printing process. They allow the customer to preview the label design before the final production. Some companies offer free digital proofs.
Printing labels to promote art exhibitions
Printing labels to promote art exhibitions can be a great way to increase the profile of your show. These simple pieces can be easily produced by your printer or at a local print shop.
Labels can be printed on either cardstock or on luster paper, and they can be mounted on foam core. The information printed on the label should be placed close to the artwork.
Museum exhibit labels are sometimes called title cards. They usually include the name of the object, the date of its display, and other relevant details. Some museums may list further information on the labels, such as the donor or the cataloging number.
When preparing the labels, be sure to keep in mind the audience of your exhibition. This can help you determine the objects you should include. You also want to make sure that the text is easy to read and legible.
A large font size is a good way to ensure that the text on your label is easy to read. Try to keep the font style consistent with your other pieces. For example, you can use a font such as Helvetica Regular.
The information on the label should be arranged to develop a narrative for the audience. Ideally, the flow of information will help audiences make connections between different works of art.
If the exhibition has multiple rooms, it may be important to put the names of artists on the labels. However, if the exhibition is only a solo show, the names can be omitted.
You should print your labels on a high-quality printer. Also, test the quality of the paper before you start printing. It should be thick enough to withstand a heavy inkjet print.
