Printing Labels and Rights

We are printing the CWC License to Print. What are the Charter Colours to give to our Printer?

CWC medals are designed and printed in a CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, and key-black) colors onto Silver Metallic Foil. For further orders kindly refer to the sticker shop.

Are CWC Medal Sticker Price and CWC License to print the same? 

The purpose of License to Print was primarily arranged for the convenience of Winners that have larger quantities of bottles to add their CWC Medals. 

Large scale usage of License to Print enables Winners to save manpower to add to all bottles by hand and/or they can arrange their printing more efficiently without needing to find a machine that can attach stickers with the exact dimensions that CWC Medals are issued at, can be time-consuming/not easily accessible.

CWC Medal's showcase winning wines and spirits to buyers who are seeking the all-important CWC stamp of approval. Whether you are the Producer, Distributor, Importer or Retailer, now is your chance to celebrate and boost sales. CWC Winners choose what is more convenient for them to enhance their sales - and order Medal Stickers or the License to Print here...

Is there a restriction to what we can use the artwork for? Shall we purchase the License to Print? 

Winners are welcome to use the CWC artwork on marketing materials related to the winning products with no restrictions if it's used for marketing material, presentations, website, press releases, trade shows, and any other marketing purpose.
