We've been making Honeystix since 1982, and are the original manufacturer or this product. We package many varieties and flavors of honey and agave in a 5 gram packet. Historically, we've supplied other businesses and distributors who have re-branded the product and done their own marketing for retail sale. We are interested in having a retail-ready package that can be sold in grocery stores, catalogs, etc.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our target audience is:
Health conscious, beekeeping / farming, above-average income, families, small businesses, tea / coffee drinkers, hotels, outdoor enthusiasts, ...
We will be using a clear plastic container to hold our product. Our product is colorful and unusual so we want to emphasize the product itself (not hide it behind a label). The label will be printed on a transparent film sticker, the design can still use a variety of color ink and incorporate letters and graphics. We want a simple, future-leaning style, that can reposition the product to a wider customer-base and reinforce high quality. The product has a great history since 1982, being included on space shuttle flights, been included in cereal boxes, enjoyed by athletes, and most of all, a kid favorite.
We will be printing the labels at LightningLabels.com in Colorado. Their art requirements are at: http://www.lightninglabels.com/artspecs.htm
Their site states: "Our strongly preferred format is an Adobe Illustrator EPS file with all fonts converted to outlines."
The shape & size of the label is flexible, except that it cannot be more than 3.5 inches tall or more than 6 inches wide. Sample size templates can be found at: http://www.lightninglabels.com/specialdies.htm
The favorite preferred templates are included here as a file.
