The use of printed labels is an often neglected aspect when branding businesses. That is why, if you want to set your dining establishment apart from your competitors, special attention should be made into creating compelling restaurant label designs. Learn how you can do that and more through this article.
A good restaurant label design is one that succinctly encapsulates what your dining establishment stands for and, at the same time, contains accurate information about the object or product the printed label is attached on. Study and internalize all the steps we’ve prepared below so that you can create your own excellent restaurant labels.
To start the label-making process, you need to choose a theme or motif that will be followed by all the printed labels for your brand. It is best to choose a design theme that matches your branding image. To illustrate, if you are running a local pub that specializes in local wine brews, then it is best to choose a vintage wine label design theme.
After deciding on a label design theme, choose and download a pre-made restaurant label template. Make sure that the template’s design matches your chosen motif or theme. This makes it easier for you to coordinate your printed labels with all your other restaurant marketing collaterals.
Next, transform your chosen label design template by editing all text and design placeholders. Since labels are small in size, you only need to do a few tweaks to the base template. The most effective labels are those that are easily readable thanks to the use of big and clean fonts.
Don’t forget to add your restaurant’s logo design or the name of the product to the base template. These seemingly tiny additions help a lot in increasing brand recall and promoting sales.
The last step is to save print out your label template files on thick cardstock. It is also in this last step that you have to attach tapes, glue, thread, or twine to the printed label if you want to attach it to a specific object.
