Re-Label Case Study
Fuze Beverage, owned by The Coca-Cola Company, found itself stuck with more than one million 12-oz. cans of its carbonated NOS brand energy drink in storage. The product, valued above $2 million and targeted as “fuel” to NASCAR race fans, couldn’t be sold as-is because it was out of compliance with updated nutritional labeling regulations.
ActionPak recommended a print-registered flexo-printed shrink sleeve. Applied properly, it would completely cover up the information in question, and in a manner that would bear a very comparable graphic appearance and texture to a normal decorated aluminum can.
Delivering more than a cover-up solution, ActionPak made another suggestion designed to increase the product’s appeal to its target audience, while also giving subtle rationale to the rather unconventional use of a shrink sleeve label for the NOS cans. “Knowing that NASCAR followers were an important target audience for this brand, we suggested positioning the product as a ‘Special Premium Edition,’” Smith explains. “By coincidence, the spokesperson for the brand, race car driver Kyle Bush, was having an amazing season. As a result, our client readily welcomed our suggestion to designate the package as a limited edition version featuring Kyle Bush.”
