Wine and Spirit Promotions with a Twist

Wine and Spirit Promotions with a Twist  | H&H Graphics

Is it just our imagination or do the beer and wine aisles get bigger and more crowded by the minute?

How does anybody choose a bottle of cabernet anymore? Or a craft beer? A bottle of scotch? You could do your research of course. There are 10,000 varieties of wine grapes, while a popular beer website has 300,000 beers listed. Of course, even if you know exactly what you're looking for, you still have to find it. 

The truth is, most of us have a much easier "system." We look at the label. From beautiful artwork to provocative names, to labels that just stand out, catching our attention from their perch on a crowded shelf, there are few places where consumers are as likely to judge your product by your packaging as the beer, wine and spirits aisles.

Case Study: Special Effects Printing for High-End Wine Branding | H&H Graphics

By all accounts the cabernet produced by the luxury vintners at Tusk Estates is a very fine wine. The 2009 is described as "precise and intense, and yet very delicate." The 2011 was "a perfect experience of pleasure" and the 2013 was "among the prettiest, silkiest and most amazing" of cabernets.

But as a blogger for Wine Spectator describes, this was about more than wine: "Tusk isn't just based on opulent winemaking but also on luxury branding," MaryAnn Worobiec writes.

It was not a wine destined for ordinary packaging. That's where H&H Graphics came in.

Bath & Body Works Case Study: A Little Glitter Goes a Long Way  | H&H Graphics

Few retailers play on the senses as successfully as Bath & Body Works. Brimming with luxurious lotions, candles, soaps and other soothing products in an endless variety of scents, a Bath & Body Works location is one giant sensory lure.

So when the company wanted to commission eye-popping, glittering holiday gift boxes to show off an assortment of body pampering treats, the job fell to H&H Graphics, where multisensory special effects printing techniques are our specialty. It was the kind of project we love: combining the glamour of glitter with added degree of difficulty.

How to Engage Consumers & Increase Sales with Multisensory Printing (A Webinar) | H&H Graphics

"Brands have to be powered up to deliver a full sensory and emotional experience. It is not enough to present a product or service visually in an ad." – Martin Lindstrom, author of Brand Sense

The retail downturn has created an even greater need for packaging, displays, promotions and signage that break through increasingly competitive shopping environments, and visual differentiation is not enough.

At H&H Graphics, we are experts at using multisensory special effects to cut through the distractions and create customer experiences that drive sales. We've tapped into decades of third-party research as well as our own R&D to develop proven methods of generating consumer engagement and memorable brand impact using multisensory appeals. We've worked with brand managers and commercial printers on a wide variety of multisensory campaigns and we’d like to share what we know with you.

In our upcoming webinar, you will learn how ESPN, Bath & Body Works, Field Notes, and a Cape Cod Restaurant are all using multisensory printing to increase consumer engagement and sales. We will discuss how and why they use special effects in their retail packaging, POP displays and other printed materials.
