The Welsh Homestead Smokery, based in Penuwch, Ceredigeon, with its smokehouse at Tregaron, is a small company specialising in artisan foods, and it has a large range of products including smoked bacon, smoked lamb bacon, smoked chilli jams, smoked chillies and smoked salts. The products are produced in small runs, and are now being sold through selected retailers in Wales.
“We are very much a growing business, and we want to offer our customers a wide range of smoked products,” explains Claire Flux, owner of the firm. “With over 40 different product lines, we realised that we needed good quality labels in small quantities, so that we could respond quickly to changing demand and not be stuck with years’ worth of stock. Axicon Labels showed us that digital printing of labels could provide the quality we need, and with a quick turnaround.”
Axicon has been able to supply label quantities varying from a few hundred to a few thousand, and as the artwork was supplied as print ready PDF files, labels were delivered only a few days after the initial order. Digital printing has meant that colour can be used to enhance the labels at minimal cost.
“Labelling is vital for us, as without it our products go nowhere. We were really pleased to find Axicon Labels at the Farm Shop and Deli show in April at the NEC, Birmingham, and their help and advice have been invaluable.,” added Claire.
"The advice on how to re-plan our label production, and use our in-house equipment more efficiently alongside Axicon printed stock has been a major help"
Axicon have helped us get out of numerous sticky situations with understanding, speed and good humour! They’ve made the whole process of getting our labels printed easy and it’s nice to know we can outsource something like this to the experts. We can’t recommend them highly enough!
