    Lightning Labels Celebrates its Customers

    Lightning Labels is celebrating its 14th anniversary this year, and has launched its 5th annual Photo Contest to bring the beautiful work of its loyal clientele to light. Participants should know that the submissions period began on May 18, and will run through July 1, and that the contest is open to all legal U.S. residents 18 years of age or older who have been Lightning Labels customers within the two years leading up to the submission deadline.

    Winners and runners up from last year received a range of great prizes for their outstanding work on custom labels, stickers and photos, and the rewards for doing so this year are even greater.

    Grand Prizes

    This year's grand prizes, which are rewarded to the top five participants following the vote on social media, include the following:

    Grand prize: GoPro Hero4

    Second prize: 40'' Flat-Screen Television

    Third Prize: Apple iPad Air

    Fourth and Fifth Prizes: Lightning Labels credits toward future purchases

    If you would like to take a look at last year's top five performers in the label contest, check out this rundown on our website. Entrants can enter the contest through the Lightning Labels Facebook page, and are urged to use photos of products that are currently in use.

    What it Takes to Win

    The Lightning Labels contest is certainly a competitive one, as hundreds of participants have gotten involved over the years. Even if an entry in the label contest is not a winner, it is a great opportunity to showcase your finest custom labeling and photo projects, all while getting to peek inside the unique marketing tactics of other contestants.

    Custom labels need to be a bit more unique and artistic to catch the eyes of consumers these days, and only the most vibrant and creative ones will tend to stand out from the crowd on shelves or other places of sale. Lightning Labels has watched its customers create incredible marketing collateral for 14 years running, and takes the anniversary as an opportunity to give them a platform to strut their stuff.

    The winners of this year's event will have a lot to brag about, as we expect a multitude of exciting and top-of-the-line entrants into the photo contest. Again, we thank you for your many years of patronage, and good luck on your custom label contest project!

  • Announcing Our 4th Annual Lightning Labels Photo Contest Winners!

    Don't Forget Back-to-School Labels This Shopping Season Facebook Voters Crown Label Contest's Top 5

    Back in May, we announced the kickoff of our fourth annual label contest and invited our customers to show off the product labels and stickers they printed with Lightning Labels. Once the submission period closed, fans of Lightning Labels on Facebook were encouraged to vote for their favorite product photos. With each entry more compelling than the last, there was some stiff competition, but voters were ultimately able to whittle down the options to five winners.

    Scentsational Soaps Claims Grand Prize in Image Contest

    Scentsational Soaps of California came out on top in our image contest and took home the grand prize - a Canon EOS Rebel camera. When she founded Scentsational Soaps back in 2007, Toushonta Hogan's wares were limited to glycerin soaps. Eight years later, she has transitioned into an expansive range of offerings that includes cold-pressed soaps, bath salts, body butter, sugar scrubs, candles, body mist and body souffle. Each product comes with a vivid label that describes the item not just with words, but also pictures. For instance, Scentsational Soaps' Caribbean soy candle label features palm trees backlit by a beautiful sunset, printed in vivid color by Lightning Labels.

    Candle-Makers Seize Second, Third Places in Lightning Labels Photo Contest

    Milwaukee Candle and Apothecary of Wisconsin, which won second place in the Lightning Labels Photo Contest, was awarded a 40-inch high-definition flat-screen TV. Meanwhile, third-place winner Art Scents of Hawaii got a Kindle Fire HDX. Like Scentsational Soaps, Milwaukee Candle's wares are more expansive than its name would suggest. In addition to candles, the company sells lip balm, aftershave, soap and more, all elegantly packaged by labels featuring refined designs. Art Scents is another business that sells candles, but with a twist: Every candle features art prints by business owner Chris Neil Conner. What's more, the containers are meant to last much longer than the candles themselves. Durability is a must in terms of this company's packaging, which makes Art Scents the perfect candidate for Lightning Labels' heat-resistant candle labels.

    Southern Girl Soapery and Sweet Tea Junkie Earn Lightning Labels Credit

    To round out the top five, Southern Girl Soapery of Arkansas and Sweet Tea Junkie of Florida received $500 and $300 in Lightning Labels credit. Southern Girl Soapery's handmade bath and body wares run the gamut from shaving products and bar soaps to body scrubs and creams, each infused with a little slice of the South. The rich colors and elegant fonts featured on Southern Girl Soapery's labels are a perfect extension of the company's brand. Sweet tea is another staple of the South, and Sweet Tea Junkie celebrates this delicious beverage by selling "tea shirts" and a range of premium, handcrafted blends. The teas' black labels combined with Sweet Tea Junkie's off-white logo and lime green text strike a balance between being refined and eye-catching. Interested in entering next year's photo contest and potentially nabbing one of these great prizes for yourself? Watch this space for details!
