Enhance Motifs

Use cold foiling on various elements of your label. As you can see by the above butterfly example, it can add a touch of whimsy to your design. If you are looking to draw attention to your packaging, it doesn’t have to come from the title. Enhancing other elements draws attention to the label as a whole.
