Festive labels for Simpkins sweets
UK confectionery brand Simpkins has launched three limited edition sweet flavours in time for Christmas.
The trio – Christmas Pudding, Mince Pie and After Dinner Sprout Mints – all display festive labels produced by label manufacturer The Label Makers.
Simpkins exports to over 40 countries across the globe, producing 80 lines of sweets at its facility in Sheffield, UK. The sweets are typically available in the UK from independent pharmacy, travel retail and garden centres as well as Boots, WH Smith, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason.
Adrian Simpkin, owner of the company, says, “These new festive labels look excellent – they are designed to be quirky and different compared to our traditional Christmas flavours and so far, they have delivered.”
The festive labels, 90mm in diameter, were produced on white gloss paper, 4-colour digitally printed on a Xeikon CX3 press. The Label Makers have also recently worked on other new lines for Simpkins sweets, including the launch in early 2018 of its Botanical candy ranges for garden centres and similar outlets.
The new flavours are currently being sold in the UK, prior to being released to the firm’s international customers in time for Christmas 2018.
