Lightning Labels, leader in printing custom labels and stickers, is excited to announce the winners of its second annual Photo Contest. After thousands of votes tallied from the Lightning Labels Facebook page, the results are in: Transparent labels take this year's grand prize.
"We created the contest as a way for our talented customers to show off their high-quality products and be rewarded for their creativity, but the entries were far better than we ever could have imagined," said AnneMarie Campbell, Business Development Manager at Lightning Labels. "Individuals and businesses participated for a chance to not only win great prizes, but social media recognition, too."
Grand prize winner Starrily, a New York-based nail polish maker that sells one-of-a-kind glitter-based nail polishes on Etsy, took home a MacBook Air. The transparent labels printed and ordered from Lightning Labels were perfect to showcase the small bottles' contents, while still letting the colorful product speak for itself.
Rectangular Labels Look Great on All Types of Products:
First place winner Vapor Girl, Inc. won an iPad Mini with a contest entry that showed printed rectangular labels featuring flowers and bright colors for e-cigarette products. The one-of-a-kind custom labels not only nabbed the attention of Lightning Labels' Facebook fans, but served as an attention-getting way to communicate warning messages and a list of ingredients.
Manufacturers and individuals can follow the Vapor Girl's lead by creating rectangular labels that not only include written information about the product and its intended uses, but also include graphics, fonts and colors that speak to the brand's personality and appeal to intended customers.
Lip Gloss Labels Win in Photo Contest Alongside Bath and Body, Food and Beverage:
The second annual Lightning Labels' Photo Contest proved that all types of products can be promoted with professional printing, from lip gloss labels to bath and body products to food and beverage items.
Second place and a Kindle PaperWhite went to the zestful labels wrapped around Van Dorn Gourmets' Seasonings. Patrick and Jane, LLC, snatched up third place, bringing home $250 in Lightning Labels' credits, with their assortment of lip gloss labels on their Sugar Lip Scrubs. The photo contest results highlighted that Lightning Labels' high-quality digital printing processes result in labels that are worthy of awards.
