Special Edition Vodka gets Custom Wood Printing
Spokane’s Dry Fly Distilling produces award-winning vodka, gin and wheat whiskey using only locally grown grains and botanicals. Dry Fly prides themselves on being a true craft distillery with a farm to bottle approach, so when it came to producing a special edition box for their vodka, they needed a printer who could print to their raw cedar boards from a local sawmill. Lee’s Pallet Service constructed the boxes for Dry Fly and brought the approximately 9.5 x 5-inch lids to Signs for Success for custom wood printing.
Printing to raw cedar required a lot of testing to get things just right. First, we printed the color directly to the wood. That worked well; however, we were looking for perfect color. Hoping to get a brighter red, we then tested the process with a white underflood, or white ink printed beneath the red. The first run gave us the perfect color we were looking for, but there were traces of white that could be seen around the edges of the logo. Trimming the edges of the white to just under the stroke size of the image solved the problem, and it gave the customer the look he really wanted. We printed 100 limited edition box lids four at a time on our HP FB500 Flatbed printer for the first run. They were a hit, and we continue to do runs of this custom wood printing for Dry Fly.
