Hot sauce is by far the number one preference of spicy food lovers. Just imagine it drizzled over dishes or dipping grilled meats and veggies in it. Mouthwatering, right?
It’s the perfect ingredient to make those taste buds explode in sensations. And you know what they say: “Pain and pleasure go hand in hand.”
People simply can’t get enough of it and use hot sauce on almost anything. That’s why it got to be one of the top-selling condiments in the United States.
But there are so many varieties of mass-produced sauces out there. And manufacturers struggle to keep their share on the market.
What better way to keep the sales on a rising scale other than by attracting shoppers with original and high-quality hot sauce labels?
Designing customized hot sauce labels can be both engaging and fun. But choosing the right printing options will give your labels the ultimate look they need. And will get you the results you want.
Here are some tips you may find useful to stick perfect hot sauce labels on your “poison.” Is yours mild or wild?
Dive in with me.
Hot Sauce Labels Made To Stand Out
Designing hot sauce labels is about creating something unique that “shocks.” Yes, you read that right! The trick is to stick to people’s retina.
There are so many tasty products out there, but the truth is many of them have such bland labels. And labels need to make those products stand out.
I mean, we’re talking about hot sauce, here! It’s not the case to be shy! A label bold enough to create a visual impact will make customers highly interested in trying your sauce.
Plus, if they are already loyal customers, they’ll spot your sauce immediately on the shelf or online.
So, the main focus is attracting attention and highlighting your brand image through your hot sauce labels.
Let me share some good practices for you to do that.
Professionally Crafted Hot Sauce Labels
Following a few super-useful steps will keep you on the right track to get outstanding results.
1. Who’s designing your hot sauce labels?
2. Measure your hot sauce container
3. Hot sauce labels and functionality
Think of the big picture. Where will you sell your product? This is another important aspect that can save you money.
The label needs to have a good effect both on its own and among many other similar products.
Like on the shelves of stores and supermarkets, for example.
4. Content and labeling regulations
Labels are not there just to look nice. They serve a purpose and that is to give full and accurate information about the product. After all, what’s written on the label actually sells the product.
5. Design with Adobe Illustrator
We highly recommend using this program to create your final artwork. Adobe Illustrator allows you to create high-quality text and imagery. Vectors can be exported and the image won’t pixelate when resized.
6. Hot sauce labels color palette
Red might be the most frequently used, but the truth is that labels on the market use almost the whole range of colors.
From red, orange, and yellow to green, blue, and purple. Even black.
With hot sauce labels, there’s actually no restriction.
Plus, something so pungent as hot sauce needs bold colors. You can choose different colors and fonts for each of your sauce’s variety. Differentiating them by color is the best way to make customers remember them.
Choose your font to reflect the flavor and personality of your sauce. Make them straight and bold or wavy, but make them big.
You can also choose different fonts for each variety of your hot sauce.
Take the world-known Tabasco, for example. This is a very good example of brand consistency.
First, their old classical bottles are all the same, no matter the type of sauce. The hex cap is always red.
This is the main thing that makes those bottles recognizable anywhere.
Second, their labels are always diamond-shaped. Tabasco likes to keep consistency in combining angles with curves.
9. Use high-quality images
Image quality is very important. So try to choose high-quality images for your labels.
JPEGs or PNGs can downgrade the overall look of your labels because they don’t print well. So we recommend using vectors instead.
10. Printing your hot sauce labels
Now, after all the design work is done, you need high-quality printing services to highlight the awesomeness of your labels.
Digital label printing is the best option with many major benefits. And one of them is quick delivery and low cost.
So all the hard work is finally celebrated with enticing labels that complement your brand.
Cool, right? I mean… Hot!
