There’s nothing more that screams hot sauce than when you’re talking food and you hear “kick it up a notch.” From the bold and robust to the hot and fiery, there are endless opportunities that accompany hot sauce flavors. Crafting a hot sauce is a masterpiece of both skill and precision. Pair the perfect concoction with the perfect packaging, including the label that is ultimately going to sell your product. Hot sauce labels are as customizable as the hot sauce itself. There are a few variables that you may want to take into consideration:

  • Will your hot sauce be exposed to moisture?
  • Will your hot sauce be exposed to both heat and cold?

There is nothing worse than creating the greatest label under the sun and printing it on the wrong material. From there, it all goes south as your precious sauce and moisture soak into the edge of your label compromising the durability and look of your product. Want a little insight? Our suggestion is using a white BOPP, a polypropylene plastic, that will stand up to the heavy usage of your hot sauce. This happens to be our our most common material. Couple this material with a matte or gloss laminate and your product will be hot and flying off the shelves.

Takeaways:

  • Choose the correct material to give your hot sauce packaging durability and a lasting shelf life.
  • Work with your designer to customize the correct shape and size to fit your hot sauce bottle.
  • Make your hot sauce label pop for ultimate shelf appeal.
