How It Started
The campaign first started in Australia during the summer of 2011-12. The company chose 150 of the most popular names in the country and printed it onto bottles and cans. In these 3 months, it became a successful venture for Coca-Cola and as a result sales increased by 4%.
Now it is being promoted all across Europe with one of the ambitious personalized brand campaign done by Coca-Cola Bottlers. The drive is supposed to produce 800 million high quality personalized labels using 150 popular names, endearments, and nicknames. The project is spearheaded Eshuis – a Dutch label converter based in Dalfsen. They will be utilizing 12 WS6000 presses that will run for 3 months, 24 hours a day. According to Peter Overbeek (Managing Director of Eshuis), using HP Indigo digital presses there will be boundless opportunities for various bottlers and brand owners such as Coca-Cola.
Eshuis have put a lot of confidence in their HP Indigo digital label printing presses to deliver millions of labels with the operations continuing on a daily basis.
