New Vermont GMO Labeling Rule goes into effect July 1, 2016

GMOLabeling

As you probably know, the new Vermont GMO Labeling Rule goes into effect July 1, 2016. For information about the law, including frequently asked questions, please click on this  link from the Vermont Attorney General’s Office documents offering guidance on complying with the new law.

We can help you with any necessary adjustments to your current labels to bring them into compliance with the upcoming rule changes. Our new Digital technology will help ease the transition by eliminating the need to purchase new printing plates for changes to art and/or copy.

In addition, we have a ready supply of generic labels that offer a more temporary solution.

Please call or email for additional information.

Thank you,

Internet shopping & Label Customers…

I am considering starting my own support group for internet shoppers anonymous (if it doesn’t already exist) I have an Amazon Prime membership and am not afraid to use it especially since my boyfriend’s debit card is also attached to it. Ok, ok, I haven’t used his card for any impulse purchases only household stuff we need but its there and sort of makes me happy… Ok I digress; I love to shop on the internet, it gives me time to really consider my purchases, there’s no one there asking me if I need assistance and I can put something in my cart or save it for later even if “later” is 3 days or 3 weeks from now.

Internet shopping

Last week while I was shopping around on Amazon, I came across two of our customers who sell their product there. I’m sure there are probably more, but these two stood out to me because they are customers who are lucky enough to have their label orders entered by me, Hidden Springs Maple and Bascom Maple. And as you can imagine they sell maple syrup, delicious maple syrup that goes well on a number of you guessed it, foods.

I was pretty tickled when I saw them on there because it really does make me proud as a small town Vermonter to see products that we as a small Vermont company make something for. Vermont sometimes has a tendency to be its own small little world and can be insulated from the rest of the country and our attitude can be that things here are “ours” so stay away, it probably has to do with no one wanting Vermont and us being a Republic for so long. We remember all those questions of ‘what state is Vermont in’ collectively as Vermonters.

For my Facebook push of the week, go and check out Pioneer Bean Company’s page and see their video of labels going onto their jars. The labels are ones we printed on our HP digital press and were the first order they’ve done with us. It made me a little excited last night while I waited for the new Muppets show to start, I love that they love the labels and that I finally got to see something I had a part in go onto a product that I enjoy. Also go and check out Vermont Farmstead Cheese’s page because they are advertising their new Shipyard Brewing Pumpkinhead ale Cheddar, and yup the labels are from us! I certainly know what I will be adding to my cheese drawer come October 1st!

September has been a big month anniversary wise here at CLOV; we have been lucky enough to have Oakley, one of our press operators and rewinders here for a year (Sept 8). Michelle, one of our fabulous Customer Service reps and one of the persons I get to share an office with (Sept 22) that as a reward for putting up with a year of Candy I purchased a delicious lunch of Pho Dang yesterday. And our one and only Lee LaChance who will be celebrating 19 years here at CLOV on Friday; Lee is our General Manager, label guru, estimating wiz and all around great help and calming force. Can you imagine being stuck in a relatively small office with a bunch of women for that long? I can’t and I AM a woman.

Have a great week and if you can, buy local!

VT is also known for some of the best beers

So because I love social media and because I am always on the look out for stories about our customers I was pleasantly surprised (but not shocked) when this little tid bit of a story came across my Facebook feed last night

Vt. brews named among world’s best beers

beer

As I have mentioned before I get a great amount of pleasure and native pride when Vermont businesses are recognized for what they do on a National level but when they are recognized on an International stage that is whole other story! When I was a kid all I remember Vermont being known for was maple syrup and skiing but now we are known for the nectar of the God’s BEER! Finally, I might be able to go to the Southern US and when asked where I am from not be asked ‘where in New York is Vermont?’!

Creative Labels is lucky enough to make labels, keg rings and just about any other thing you can put on a can, bottle, keg or growler for several of the best beer makers in Vermont; not only do we have the pleasure of producing keg rings for our news story above Hill Farmstead Brewery, but we also work with 14th Star Brewery, Lost Nation, Otter Creek Brewery, Stone Corral, Crop Bistro, Trapp Family Lodge, Kingdom Brewing, Magic Hat and many more that I cant think of off the top of my head and it only makes sense to me that some of the best brewers in Vermont work with the best label producer in Vermont!

Now that I have covered one of my favorite types of beverages let me subtly move towards one of my favorite foods and festivals being held coincidentally at one of my favorite breweries, the Vermont Farmstead Cheese’s Mac and Cheese Challenge! Please if you want to sample delicious comfort food, support a GREAT cause and have some excellent beer in a beautiful location, come to Windsor on Sunday and have some mac and cheese! And if you do come and see a tall red headed man carrying out a short brown haired girl who looks like she has succumbed to an over indulgence of cheese, clutching a 3rd annual Vermont Farmstead Cheese Mac and cheese Challenge t-shirt, that will be me! So come over and say hi and I will tell you about Creative Labels, why you should do business with us and I will try to get you to laugh as my boyfriend drags me away from the tent as I try to go back in for more samples! I wonder what you do for a cheese hangover? I guess we will find out on Monday when I come in for work!
