Q: Do label design companies design labels?
A: Generally not. If you contact a company like Blue Label, they will probably send you to a creative agency like High-Proof Creative, first.
Generally, you can’t get an estimate without a design. Creative agencies that specialize in label design for the spirits industry will not only help with making sure your label will pass TTB, but they can also work with the label company on label printing details like embossing, spot gloss, screen printing, and more.
