People have been cultivating wine since as early as 4,000-5,000 years B.C. The first wine festivals were probably held in Greece in honor of Dionysus, Greek god of wine and fruitfulness. Wine was also drank at other types of social gatherings, so it seems that our love for the wine & talk combination spans the millenniums.
Going back to school after a long summer vacation isn’t easy for teachers, kids and parents, and it’s a different kind of challenge for each of these groups. For kids, it means the end of playing all day long. For parents, it’s the pressure of preparing children for school – from acquiring school books and school supplies, to getting them back to more disciplined eating and sleeping regimes. And finally, the beginning of a new school year for teachers means hard work on preparing for those first weeks of lectures and classroom activities.
Another school year’s just around the corner. Whether you’re happy or sad (and this might depend on whether you’re a parent or kid), it is that time of year when lots of things need to be taken care of. The first day of school can be scary enough without the stress of not being prepared with all the right books, supplies, clothes, and the right attitude.
The major burden of preparing for school will fall on your shoulders. The things that you, as a parent, need to organize are:
If you look beyond a product label, you’ll see hours and hours of research, strategic planning, and creative thinking. One of the most recognizable bottle labels in the world, Coca Cola’s, is not only white letters in a nice italic font on a red background. It’s much more than that and involves deep understanding and analysis of this brand’s target audience.
So, when you head over to good old Labeley to design labels for your product, how will you go about it? Will you just choose any nice image, label shape and text font that appeal to your current mood, or will you prepare a more elaborate strategy for your design?
We’re excited to host our first Facebook giveaway and we’re inviting all creative people, design enthusiasts, DIYers, people who love to have a good time and people who need labels for their homemade products to join us on Facebook in a great label-making adventure.
Branding a product can be as frustrating as it is exciting. The frustration comes from not knowing sometimes how to balance all the design elements properly. We know that both images and text carry weight when sending a message to potential product users, but which is more important and how do we put all elements together to make the design visually stimulating, comprehensive and informative at the same time? We’ll talk about that at length in our next post. Today we’ll zoom in on the textual part of a product label and explain how different fonts, font options and properly used label text contribute to maximizing a product’s allure. We’ll use Labeley for demonstration, of course.
Labeley offers lots of options for designing all types of custom labels, but did you know that it started out as a beer label maker? Yes, it’s original and single purpose was to help homebrewers brand their beverage. Though it provides more services now, it seems that beer labeling is still the most popular type of labeling with our app.
If you’ve just heard about Labeley now, here’s a quick introduction:
Starting a business isn’t easy. Managing it and keeping it successful is probably even more difficult. Lots of new projects are started every day, but a much smaller percentage of those projects turn into full-fledged, profitable businesses with a future.

Knowing how to brand your business is one of the key factors in the survival of your venture.
Now that you had time to perfect your label design skills since our last tutorial on making neat, professional-looking labels, it’s time to present to you some excellent custom label printing opportunities that you have with Labeley.
After you’ve designed a unique beer label for your homebrewed beverage, a fun kids label for a line of children’s products you are planning to sell, or any other type of personalized stickers for your brand, the next step is to print them out and finalize your product.

The best thing about Labeley, apart from the fact that it’s free, easy-to-use and registration is on a voluntary basis only, is that it can transform an ordinary person into a talented artist. It is almost as if Labeley gives you superpowers. And this superpower of having attractive design skills not only makes you feel good, but it can also make you look good around your friends, bring you points at work and help you get started with your own business idea.

Imagine what she’d do in four minutes!
