Hot Sauce labels are a big part of the food industry, so yours must not only say the essentials, but show the consumer what they will experience. Here are three tips to remember when designing your own custom hot sauce labels.

1. Make your Branding Sizzle

Having exceptional branding in a competitive market like hot sauce is essential. Customers want to know what they are buying. 

For example, a single colored label with your company’s name and the sauce’s flavor is forgettable. However, if your hot sauce perfectly blends sweet and spicy, then your label could be a mix of ingredient colors, leaving the shopper drooling for just one drop.

In other words, the design of your label needs to easily inform buyers of the heat and flavors of your sauce.

Did I mention color? Color choice when creating hot sauce labels is significant. The color of your custom label needs to catch the shopper’s eye and can also be the main reason they remember your hot sauce brand. In fact, Sticker Mountain can color match with great accuracy. The colors of your label may also represent the different levels of flavors and spices of your hot sauce.

Extra Hot
Typically, on a hot pepper scale, a nice hot deep red and even black represents the spiciest level of hot sauce out there.
Hot and Powerful
Create a color mixed with vibrant oranges and soft reds, giving the customer a tasteful challenge.
Medium Spice but Packed with Flavor
The next step down from hot sauce will be a spicy sauce. Often the spicy sauces are represented with a mix of yellow and orange.
Mild Sauce
Mild sauces are some of the most popular because they have a good range of flavors and don't burn your tongue off. These labels would best communicated by using light and dark greens mixed with bright, vibrant yellows.

The colors you choose for your hot sauce brand are crucial.

For instance, the colors you choose can affect the desire people have for your hot sauce. In addition, colors allow you to highlight the parts of the label you want the customers’ eyes to see first. 

For example, with Cholula Hot Sauce, your eye goes straight to the name instead of the flavor itself. To be clear, they placed the eye-popping reds of the brand next to the bright yellows of the background. Thus, the contrast directs you to the first thing they want you to see: their name.
