Hot Foil on Wine Label: The Artistic Touch that Defines Ezimit Winery
Ezimit Winery, located in North Macedonia, is a true gem of the Balkans. Founded in 1991, it combines tradition and innovation to create exceptional wines that reflect the unique terroir of the region. From crisp whites to bold reds, Ezimit wines are a testament to the passion and expertise of its winemakers.
To showcase its premium range of wines, Ezimit Winery commissioned a series of labels that capture the essence of its brand. The result is a stunning collection of 13 labels that feature a non-traditional shape and a striking hot foil element.
The hot foil element, made of solid gold, is the centerpiece of the design. Resembling the shape of a grape, it occupies the left half of the label and creates a sense of luxury and exclusivity. The grapes, represented by holes cut inside the foil, add depth and texture to the design. The random spots inside the gold foil zone remind us of the rocky terroir where the grapes are grown, creating a strong visual connection between the wine and its origin.
On the right half of the label, the Ezimit branding is stamped with gold hot foil and strong embossing. The combination of hot foil and embossing creates a tactile experience that invites the consumer to touch and feel the label, reinforcing the idea of quality and craftsmanship.
In the top-right corner, there is a seal with the Ezimit brand embossed against the plain background. This subtle detail adds a touch of elegance and reinforces the brand’s identity.
One of the most distinctive features of the labels is the use of different background colors for whites and reds. The whites use a white label background, while the reds use black paper. This choice creates a strong contrast that enhances the visibility and impact of the gold hot foil element.
Overall, the hot foil element on the Ezimit wine labels is a stroke of genius that elevates the design to a work of art. By using a non-traditional shape, solid gold hot foil, and embossing, the labels create a sensory experience that reflects the quality and sophistication of Ezimit wines. If you’re looking for a wine label that stands out and makes a statement, look no further than Ezimit Winery’s hot foil labels.
