Printing for Soft Drinks

Everyone drinks soft drinks, so the cultures of consumption around the different species are extremely rich. We drink water everywhere, but we don't drink mineral water every day. Carbonated drinks are a normal sight both in the park and at a family dinner. Fruit juices are often present in the refrigerator, but are also included in cocktails, so they are a favorite part of mixology. 

Labels combined with appropriate packaging are the perfect way to express the character of a soft drink. The wide choice of combinations between beautiful colors and shapes, impressive printing effects and selected materials we are offering are a real advantage for any soft drinks brand.

More on soft drink labels

Highly aesthetic combinations of unique colors and eye-catching effects such as varnish, matte and/or gloss can clearly communicate the qualities and benefits of soft drinks. And the combination with different shaped glass and plastic packaging can make a strong impression at first glance.

Well-chosen combinations of colors, shapes, materials, and effects makes the product recognizable and attractive to the right people who would choose it among all other brands on the shelfs. Of course, the printing of labels for soft drinks must meet not only aesthetic purposes.

For manufacturers, the health of customers is an extremely high priority. Therefore, the different ways of presenting the nutritional content of beverages, including color codes on the labels, help consumers to make an informed decision about the amounts of a nutritional substance they consume.

Environmental impact reduction depends on the used technologies. The matter is an important one in the field of soft drinks production and their labels, and is attracting public attention. The topic has been debated for decades and is gaining momentum, and over time regulatory requirements are only getting stricter. Consumer preferences for more ecological packing solutions are also becoming more pronounced, but the requirements for the packing’s durability and aesthetics are still as high as ever.

Properties that allow reusing or recycling require appropriate inks, adhesives, media, and label printing technologies. We at Rotoprint are masters of the creation of environmentally friendly self-adhesive and other types of labels.

Labels for mineral water

Bulgaria is known for its mineral springs and richness of water resources, so the high number of brands of bottled mineral, spring and table water is not surprising. The bottles themselves vary greatly in size, from very small bottles that fit in a small handbag to larger bottles, bag-in-boxes and tubes, such as those suitable for dispensers.

For their labels, manufacturers usually rely on film as media because of its resistance to moisture, temperature and sunlight and its flexibility. The design is often based on transparency, which expresses the purity and freshness of the water. Consumers are interested in data such as the source of the water, the mineral composition and its effects on the body.

Fruit juice labels

Fruit juices are a part of the daily lives of many people, with a regular presence in the shopping cart. Fruit juices, fresh juices, nectars, even compotes, which are no longer reserved only for home production, are on the shelves. Their labels and packaging is the only thing that informs about their composition and origin and distinguishes them.

Often the design of labels for fruit juices depicts the freshness and taste of the product through colors and illustrations. Thus, there is a risk that among the huge number of brands and varieties, one product will remain indistinguishable from the others. We at Rotoprint have a rich catalog of different types, to achieve great combination of label effects and shapes, so that the product demonstrates its qualities in the most remarkable way. 

Carbonated drinks labels

Carbonated drinks or sodas have started their existence as tonics for medical purposes. Today there is a huge variety of flavors and types, even home-made ones. The labels have the difficult task of attracting customer’s attention among many more competitive products.

But there are still challenges for fizzy drink labels. For people who like to drink carbonated beverages, attention to nutritional value is rapidly growing. The topics of reusing or recycling labels and bottles to protect the environment are also gaining momentum. At Rotoprint, we understand the difficulties and opportunities in printing labels for carbonated beverages and offer our customers the best solutions for their production.

Labels for Organic Soft Drinks

Organic soft drinks range from juices, syrups and nectars to more niche drinks based on nuts, soy, coconut and others, including some organic sodas. Attention to the product’s origin, production technique and the packaging characteristics in relation to its environmental impact are some of the elements that are important for people who consume such drinks.

The products come in different types of packaging – glass, cardboard and plastic, according to storage requirements of the product. That is why their labels have a different purpose. Especially for imported products they are mostly informative. In other cases, however, the labels artistically represent the nature of the beverage, and may also be tailored to the packaging material for easier recycling or made from modern environmentally friendly materials.

Labels for different applications

Soft drinks are usually bottled in plastic or glass bottles. But cardboard packaging, pouches, and metal cans are very common. They all take into account the way the drink is consumed and the way people would prefer to drink it. Of course, when printing labels, the surface on which they will be adhered is taken into account, because it determines many of the desired functional qualities.

Labels for plastic surfaces

Soft drinks are usually associated with plastic bottles, commonly used for carbonated beverages. The combination with multi-colored labels printed on high quality film, and often metallic foil, provides both the beautiful appearance and the strength of the label. Of course, there are other options for materials (media), such as paper.

Appropriate adhesives are needed to affix the labels to the plastic. The factors to be considered are the surface to which the label is to be attached and the printing material. At Rotoprint, we have extensive experience in printing soft drink labels using plastic packaging for distribution.

Labels for glass surfaces

Labels on glass for soft drinks usually use paper and suitable complementary materials. The glass surface combined with a beautiful label with quality colors and style-appropriate shape presents the drink and its qualities.

Fruit juices, water, carbonated drinks - they can look great in glass bottles. It can give a more refined appearance to the drink or become part of a more environmentally friendly way of distributing the product.

Labels for cardboard boxes

The boxes for fruit juices are made of materials with different compositions, which complement the cardboard according to the storage, distribution and other requirements. One way to present information about the drink is through a self-adhesive label. Labels that are used for adhering on cardboard boxes have both aesthetic and informative function. Therefore, they are a great tool for demonstrating the qualities of the content.

With vivid, professionally executed colors and carefully selected shape of the label, it can stand out among other products on the shelf. And with a wide selection of finishing effects in Rotoprint, including embossing, varnish, special inks, designers have the means to unleash their imagination and tell the story of the product in countless unexpected and captivating ways.
