  • Ice cream container template?

    Hi, I'm designing a label for a 1 pint ice cream container (like a small Ben & Jerry's canister) but can't find a template for the label anywhere. They're tricky templates, because they have a subtle curve to them to fit the tapered sides... anyone know where I can find something like this?

      7 steps to heaven

      Step 1
      Go to the shops buy some Ben and Jerry's

      Step 2
      Eat the whole tub of ice cream yourself and then basque in your own glory

      Step 3
      Wait for ice cream to settle (could be a few hours best to rest).

      Step 4
      Wash the tub, dry the tub

      Step 5
      Remove label

      Step 6
      Scan label

      Step 7
      Use scanned label as template



      I suppose you'd have to contact Ben & Jerry marketting to get the template, I doubt it would be available for anyone to download and use for whatever they want.

        I like that way of getting the "template"

        But I agree with Ckret on this.
        Or better yet it may be simply designing straight and then add the curve at the end. I know similar issues are had with paper cups and can ask a co-worker who deigned cups (gotta wait a while as she's in a meeting).

          As someone who sometimes designs book covers, a realistic design needs to consider the sales brought on by shelf appeal. And shelf appeal doesn't just depend on aesthetics; it also depends on grabbing...

          I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.

          This shows that you are thinking threw what you are doing...
