Crispy and tasty
The Fausch bakery in Seewis produces a nut spindle from fine local ingredients according to the recipe of the two, thus also supporting the local trade. Those who produce such sustainable specialties also want to see them labeled accordingly. That's where the couple's friend Daniel Stüdeli, a graphic designer in Zurich (Jardinpublic.ch), comes in. He designs and creates all the labels for the various products and works with the company Selfix, as a label specialist.
Love of local specialties
Jürg Müller has been running the restaurant "Du Théâtre", which is located in Zurich's Seefeld not far from the opera house, for five years. He spoils his guests with exquisite and often unusual dishes. The large wine selection is complemented by a Zurich Räuschling and a Zurich Pinot Noir, both of which are also designed with Selfix labels.
The result is impressive
The Röteli as an autumn/winter drink is traditionally served on festive occasions, at Christmas and New Year's Eve and at family celebrations. In the Prättigau, each family has its very own recipe. The Nussschindle, which can be enjoyed piece by piece, goes with it. The Bündnermeister, a herbal liqueur with Bündner spring water, mountain mint and orange, is a year-round drink for an often young target group; neat, iced, with Redbull - as a digestive or party drink.
High-quality packaging and label
Finest, sustainable ingredients, domestic production, high-quality bottle; all this requires a correspondingly high-quality and sustainable label. Daniel Stüdeli designed the logos in earthy colors and found a Swiss natural paper. The first bottles were still laboriously glued by hand with copied labels. It quickly became clear that this was too cumbersome, and in their
search for a solution they came across the label printing company Selfix from Otelfingen ZH. And the solution is there: a natural, matte, haptically appealing paper, printed at Selfix on the new TAU330 digital printing press. The labels, supplied on rolls, are a hit. Jürg Müller is thrilled: "These wine labels on rolls are easy and easy to remove and stick excellently to the bottles. No "Eckli" or larger area comes off. And this is also the case when the bottle is chilled. Simple handling with top quality!"
Digital printing convinces
No other industry has such a wide range of applications for labels as the food industry," also notes Kurt Fischer, owner and managing director of Selfix AG. "Labels provide information about the contents and the packaging and at the same time support the product in its brand statement and identity." In doing so, it is important to ensure a high level of product differentiation and specifications. Today, a food label must be able to do many things. An extensive exchange of information is necessary between the customer and the label manufacturer in order to precisely define the individual label requirements. Selfix AG opted for digital printing for these food labels, the right choice for meeting customer requirements due to the flexibility, short makeready times, lightfastness of the inks and the resulting cost-effectiveness and quality!
Jürg Müller is convinced that his products meet the trend of the times. He already produces around 1200 bottles of Röteli and Bündnermeister per year. "And all this with the labels of Selfix AG," Müller concludes with satisfaction. The latest innovation is Röteli-Glacé, which is already on the dessert menus of various restaurants.
