PaperSpecsGallery.com Presents: The Girl And Dragon Label
This week, PaperSpecsGallery.com presents the Girl And Dragon Label. Cult Partners takes us on a Game of Thrones adventure in Gothic-luxe style with this wistful wine label. The stock choice, palette and illustrations, make the tale of this bottle irresistible.

Flexo printed in four-color, the first thing that catches my eye is the romantic illustration of the girl—flowing hair, ropes of pearls, garlands of flowers. We’ve now entered an enchanted world where dragons fly overhead.
That dragon is subtly rendered on the background of the Fasson semi-gloss label with clear gloss foil. The smooth feel of the base label against the slightly different texture and shine of the foil adds dimension and drama. A scalloped border done with gold foil is set on an angle around the girl giving the impression that she’s standing at a window.
Does the dragon guard her or menace her? I think you’ll need to discover that over a glass of wine.
