A Global Toast
Beer and barbecue go together like… well… beer and barbecue. With summer heating up, custom-label logoed beer is the ideal tipple for corporate cookouts. Companies hosting sales conferences and other soirées for clients and employees will also be keen to clink “cheers” with branded bottles of suds.
Raffi Bouladian can confirm that. Recently, he was tasked with providing the beer for a worldwide corporate party.
The senior account executive at NorthPoint Printing (asi/285317) was working with an international software company gearing up to celebrate the release of its most important product ever with a launch party. The main shindig was occurring in California, but the company wanted employees at offices around the globe to get in on the fun. “They were thanking employees. They needed the products to tie in to a celebration theme,” Bouladian says.
He presented several options, but the winners were found after the client saw beer and champagne offerings from A+ Plus Wine Designs (asi/30223).The client ordered 336 custom-label India Pale Ale bottles (L-118) and 62 custom-label champagne bottles (L-126 Chandon). “It looked like they had their own micro-brew beer – their own brand of champagne,” says Bouladian, noting that A+ provided design ideas upon which the software company based the label graphics.
Working within a tight timeframe, A+ split-shipped the victuals to the global locations in time for the party. The tech firm’s key partners later received beer, too. “Feedback from our client was very positive,” says Bouladian.
