PaperSpecsGallery.com Presents: First Press Olive Oil Packaging (Video)
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
In this unique celebration of 100 years of true craftsmanship, this limited release organic olive oil comes straight from the Kallas family orchard in the southern Peloponnesian region of Greece. Having built a reputation in crafted holiday gifting, MET Fine Printers partnered with the design team of Michael Shea and Jon Roy of SCHOOL + JACKSON to design this stunning limited release organic olive oil package.
In connecting the story of the First Press Olive Oil extraction process to the craftsmanship and joy involved in fine printing, this elegant packaging design tastefully weaves elements of cloth, foil and wood throughout the theme.

Shea and Roy utilized inkjet UV direct-to-substrate printing to create an opaque white print on the gorgeous Natuur Halflinen cloth that wraps both the box and bottle of olive oil.
The coin label applied to the outside of the box and bottle, along with the soft plopping sound of the magnetic closure was added to enhance the exclusive feel of the package. As we're sure anyone lucky enough to get their hands on one of the 319 hand-numbered, limited release packages would agree.
