Cabreiroa water is revitalized with Spear's reverse printed labels

Cabreiroá is a mineral water derived from springs in the Galicia region of Spain. Being one of the leading brands in the North West region for over 100 years, Cabreiroa, owned by Hijos de Rivera, is setting its sights on a national market.

The traditional brand is being revitalized, with a unique, new PET bottle range and collection of six pressure-sensitive labels, printed by Spear.

“Since 1906, we’ve worked for our products to become recognized in the natural mineral water world. Cabreiroá’s new PET containers, characterized by a clean modern line, are a consequence of this constant effort”, explains Juan Paz García of Hijos de Rivera.

Aimed at a premium market, Cabreiroá represents vitality together with its Galician origin. Each of the six back labels were printed with a different scenery design in mirror fashion. Spear then applied a solid white to conceal it before printing the back label design (proudly promoting their sponsorship of the Spanish national football team). The Cabreiroa logo on the front label had to be a strong, clean white to stand out against the photographic back label image. In line with requirements for a premium look pack, Spear chose a hi-reflectance silver, printed sub-surface, to create a foil effect on which to display the beverage description.

The result is an aquatic scene magnified through the bottle, complimenting the energetic silhouette on the front label.
“The new labels represent a turning point into the world of PET containers. Thanks to our collaboration with Spear, we have achieved optimal synchrony between the front and back label. In our opinion, this is a fantastic method of conveying a message of vitality and Galician origin in a simple and natural way”, Juan Paz García, Hijos de Rivera.
