The Imprimerie du Marais produces labels, hangtags, adhesives and stickers that are meticulously crafted using all of our techniques. Many questions are on the table when projects are launched: conditions of use, attachment, resistance, use (water, oil, light), reuse (permanent, re-positionable, solvent-free adhesive), environmental quality (recyclable, recycled, solvent-free). Our goal is always the same: to sublimate your brand and enhance the value of your products in the hands of your curious and perfectionist customers.
"EMBOSS A STICKER AND PUT YOUR BRAND IN TONE ON TONE, LIKE A STAMP."
Clive Christian perfumes carry the emblem of the English crown and for the past 5 years we have shared the pleasure of developing the small, neat certificates and stickers marked by this House. Tori Snowball manages the brand and confides her vision to us: “T.S - For a perfume house, the exceptional is hidden in the smallest details. It is by feeling the sublime of the object that our customers perceive the product as exceptional, the different textures, the finishes used to give this level of quality truly synonymous with luxury. It is equally essential to create something that is visually appealing and captures the story, the senses and the spirit. Print and paper is the medium in which we put all this, housed right next to all our bottles.”
The production of a hangtag in large series accompanies the launch of a project, and follows an agency creative direction, consulted for a global identity. Then come the issues of prototyping and production in small launch series, then larger series. The aim here is to produce as accurately as possible, not to impact the selling price, and to preserve the quality of the details, and above all not to alter the object on which the hangtags are placed. For Rimowa’s redesign identity, we did work on all these aspects, thinking about the scratches on a rivet, the impact of the number of folds and glues, and above all the establishment of a quality follow-up on a tiny object where the positioning of the embossing, foiling and rivets leaves nothing to chance. Thousands of projects are produced every week by our craftmen hands, with just as much attention to every detail.
Embossing a sticker and putting its mark in tone, like a stamp, here is a beautiful idea that can be donne… The paper is thin, the imprint can be flattened with die-cut and packaging. All our our craftsmen gestures have gradually adapted to these adhesive materials, when the glue gets involved…
Having a sticker the same colour and material of your stationery set is a nice way to add a little touch to the packaging your customer will open. Specially if you used a very thin, silky paper. Papers are rarely self-adhesive; we have the resources and techniques to create a harmonious unit on all your supports.
Using eco-responsible resources and producing sustainable materials and products are key to the future of the printing industry. We produce plant-based, solvent-free adhesive stickers, stickers made from recycled paper, ranging from 20% to 100%. Going further is possible: your commitments are the driving force behind our research.
"We create handmade stickers, carefully thought out and produced, where all our techniques are applied to an adhesive paper."
