To get this episode started, a mouth-watering introduction is in order,  but first, shall we talk about the man who started it all?

You may have heard of him, a fourth-generation pâtissier from the Black Forest region of Aichhalden in Germany, residing in beautiful Vancouver. With a career extraordinaire and multiple recognitions as a Top Pastry Chef in America. You know it! Is Konditormeister Thomas Haas! Our favourite Master Pastry Chef!

More than 15 years ago, Thomas and his wife Lisa started pursuing their lifelong dream: "to be creative, have fun and make people laugh, while preparing the most delectable handcrafted chocolates and pastries imaginable" - Thomas Haas. And so far, they've been excelling at this!

Clear proof is their latest Haaselnut spread which will undoubtedly delight your taste buds and leave you smiling from ear to ear.

Have you ever wondered what makes one pastry or chocolate more delicious than others?

It’s all in how they’re made - the powerhouse science and masterful handcrafting behind each of them is what makes us fall in love. Haaselnut Spread results from decades of craftsmanship behind Thomas’ expertise and his extensive knowledge of the pastries arts.

The same can be said for custom label printing.

It is definitely an art and a science. Printing in all sorts of materials, producing unique shapes, applying finishes, getting the vibrant hues just right and achieving the level of detail that most labels require is no easy feat. But when you see a product that’s been completely transformed by a custom label - a dull container turned into something that creates smiles and joy - you know it’s all worth it.

Thomas Haas' eye-catching Metallic Bopp Label has both a Knockout and a Cut-through

For the Haaselnut Spread, we printed in a Metallic Bopp Film with two unique techniques: A knockout for the SPREAD letters, making them bright and shiny, and a cut-through below them (Thomas’ special design idea).

But what exactly is a cut-through? And, how does it help your custom labels?

A cut-through is a unique technique that allows custom-made cuts to the inside area of the label, creating memorable, cool-looking effects to the label design that not only make the product stand out but add to the overall experience of your customers.

You can use a Cut-through to create all sorts of shapes and designs, from simple
polygons to more intricate geometric patterns. With Cut-throughs, you can let your
creativity shine and come up with some truly unique designs.

Like Thomas Haas and his chocolates and pastries, we strive to bring happiness through beautiful, well-crafted labels. And we think we’re pretty good at it! So if you need custom label printing services, contact us - we’d be happy to help you turn your product into something special.

Haaselnut Spread is made with 100% natural ingredients.
