10 Of The Most Iconic Logos To Inspire You

26 Aug 2018


Before you can print your stickers, labels or decals, you’ll need to get a killer logo designed. But with all the choices out there where do you even begin? These 10 iconic brands got it spot on when they created their branding. You’ll notice each of these most famous brands use simple designs that speak to their core values and offerings. Read on to get inspired!

  1. Apple

While the Apple logo has always been prominent, the brainchild of Steve Jobs has grown in popularity in recent years with the explosion of technology and Apple’s ever-increasing range. Love or hate Apple, you can’t deny you’d recognise that logo anywhere!

  1. Michelin

If you own a car, you’ve likely come across the Michelin man. Sometimes you can see him blowing in the breeze on Old Main Rd in Pinetown. Or maybe you’ve seen his mummy-like figure on your TV screens. Sometimes giving an ordinary thing like tyres a personality through your branding is all you need to become recognisable!

  1. Microsoft

When you see 4 colourful squares, if Microsoft doesn’t immediately come to mind it’s time to climb out from under that rock you’ve been living under since the 90s!

  1. McDonalds

It’s simple, it’s international and it’s making us hungry already. The golden arches that make up the global McDonalds logo were derived from the brands early store design, so that they would stand out and be seen by passers-by from a distance.

  1. KFC

Everytime we see smiley Colonel Sanders in his apron we know our grumbling tums are in for a treat! The world’s favourite fried chicken certainly has one of the most iconic logos of all time. Now excuse us while we go inspect the logo more closely on our zinger wings packaging…

  1. Nike

The Nike swoosh was created by a graphic design student back in 1971 who was paid a grand total of $35 for her design. It’s simple, elegant yet so clearly embodies the core values of the brand – just do it!

  1. Starbucks

The well-known and much-loved siren in the centre of the Starbucks logo has been used since 1971. The coffee powerhouse has since dropped using its name on their logo – because, well, they’re just that popular there’s no need. Coffee anyone?

  1. Chanel

If you were asked to name any designer fashion brand, how many of you would say Chanel? The iconic French brands logo was made up of founder Coco Chanel’s initials, perfectly symbolising her minimalist designs and monochrome colour palette.

  1. Mercedes

When you think of luxury vehicles, its likely Mercedes comes to mind. The triangle star exemplifies the brand’s “dominance over land, air and sea” with their wide product offering.

  1. Mickey Mouse

The snazziest and cutest mouse around, it’s no doubt Mickey is the mascot of Disney! The simple mouse silhouette has to be one of the most well-known logos by a mile!


Meet The Team: Shaun

13 Aug 2018


As part of our ‘Meet The Team’ series, this month we’d like to introduce you to Shaun. He’s a creative, music-loving guy with a rock-star vibe to him, so read on to find out more about what he does and what makes him tick.

Thanks for sitting down with us, Shaun. What is your role in the business?

I am mainly involved with customer service and sales.

Which area of the business is your favourite and why?

Even though I don’t deal with it directly, the laser-engraving side of the business interests me.

What motto do you live by?

Be kind, love and rock ‘n roll!

What would we find you doing in your spare time?

I love spending time with my wife – she’s my best friend. We love to go for walks, philosophise, watch movies. On my own, I listen to a lot of music – all kinds – and also enjoy playing guitar.

If you could rule the world, what would you change on day one?

I would bulldoze all shopping malls and replace them with forests. I think you can tell I’m a nature person!

If you weren’t in your current role and could do absolutely anything, what would it be?

I would either be a cardio-thoracic surgeon or in a really famous rock ‘n roll band. Maybe both!

Why should customers choose to work with us?

We offer the best customer service I’ve ever experienced because we are passionate, always striving for the highest standards. As a result, we deliver on our promises every time. I feel like good service is hard to come by in South Africa, so I like to see us as the rebels, going against the status quo and being outstanding instead!

To finish off, here are some rapid-fire questions for you to answer…go!

Tea or coffee? Neither – I’d rather have Supermoo!

Burgers or Pizza? Pizza

Wine or Beer? Neither – hot chocolate is way better

Chips or Chocolate? I’m sure you already guessed it, chocolate

Beach or Bush? Bush

Winter or Summer? Definitely summer

7 Font Trends To Follow in 2018

28 Jun 2018


The power of typography is no secret – it either catches the eye of the consumer or is dull enough to be ignored. If you’re building a brand or designing stickers and labels, fonts are a vital component. Here are 7 trends to try this year to stay ahead of the pack.

  1. Serif Fonts For The Win

This year has seen a rise in the use of serif fonts in branding. Not sure what the heck that means? A serif can be described as, “a small line attached to the end of a stroke in a letter or symbol.” It was considered outdated at one stage, but the old classics have come back in style – think Times New Roman and Typewriter style fonts.

  1. Back In Time

There has been an upswing in the use of 70s and 80s style fonts that give off very retro vibes. These types of fonts suit a trendier, edgier brand such as bars and restaurants. They would clash with the branding of an upmarket store or hotel for example.

  1. Size Matters

2018 is all about being big and bold – including fonts! Large, bold fonts are eye-catching and help a brand stand out. In fact, bold fonts demand consumer attention!

  1. Cut-outs and Overlays

Imagine multiple image overlays to create an interesting canvas for your text to appear on. This includes letter cut-outs with the background peeping out to add interest to designs.

  1. Highlights and Underlining

Highlighting and underlining words is not only reserved for SKY News and magazines. This year has seen a major increase in this attention-grabbing technique, giving designs a modern editorial feel. This is also a simple way to draw attention to specific words or phrases.

  1. Brush Scripts

If you haven’t seen handwritten style fonts splashed across your favourite blogs, social feeds or magazines then you’ve been hiding under a rock! Brush scripts are MASSIVE, especially when it comes to logo design. If it fits your brands, this soft and beautiful font style should be strongly considered.

  1. Transparency

Picture colourful backgrounds with clear fonts superimposed onto them. This has given designs a clean, contemporary feel and once again, suit a more relaxed and trendy brand.

Sho, that probably felt like a lot of new information! But don’t stress, we’re here to help! We make printing your branded stickers, labels and decals easy as pie by allowing you to upload your completed designs on our website and that’s it – order placed! Your order then gets delivered to your door faster than you can say ‘What the font!’

Quirky Jam Flavours You Need In Your Life

24 Jun 2018


Fancy yourself a bit of a foodie? Us too! Jam and preserves are a staple in any food lovers pantry, offering a versatile topping or side to a variety of dishes. We’ve created our fair share of jam jar labels for our customers and to pay homage to one of the world’s favourite condiments, we’re rounding up the flavours you need to try NOW!

  1. Bacon Jam

Nope, it’s not solely reserved for oversized knitwear-wearing, man bun flaunting hipsters – bacon jam is mainstream these days! And let’s be real…bacon makes everything taste better! Put it on your eggs, on toast or with your next cheese board. Our favourite? Pimping your toasted cheese sarmie!

  1. Raspberry and Vanilla Jam

Vanilla and raspberry have to be one of the most decadent flavour combinations when it comes to jams. There are a million drool-worthy things we can think of topping with this, but scones come to mind, as does apple pie. The dessert aisle is your oyster.

  1. Fig and Red Onion Marmalade

Ok, we’re officially salivating. Can you get much better than the sweet fruitiness of figs blended with the tang of the humble red onion? This guy goes fabulously on burgers, steak, your morning eggs and can make your lunchtime sandwich that much more delicious.

  1. Olive and Chilli Jam

Olive and chilli make for an interesting flavour profile, with the bitterness of orange mixed with the sweetness of citrus finished off with a spicy kick from the fresh chilli. Expect to spread it generously on baguettes with cheese, as a topping to your fish or on your smoked chicken salad. Yum!

  1. Pink Gin & Strawberry Jam

If only we could drink this straight out the jar. But alas, we’ve been told that’s not appropriate. Made from succulent, sweet strawberries with notes of juniper berry and elderflower, this fresh and fruity jam will make breakfast feel like cocktail hour every day!

  1. Single Malt Whisky Jam

Made from deliciously smooth and spicy bourbon, the rich and beautiful colour of the single malt whisky jam adds to its appeal. It pairs perfectly with zesty oranges so it’s a must if you plan on making a tangy citrus tart for dessert. A match made in confectionary heaven!
