-Skibbereen Eagle was a newspaper founded in 1857 in the small town in West Cork, Ireland, from where it took the name. The concept of the design was to celebrate the historical newspaper focusing on typography and paper, which were the key elements of the printed newspaper at the time. The label is printed in a textured paper, then added a strong emboss with script typography and stamping foil.
The use of strong blind emboss across the whole label gives an attractive feature to the overall design and makes you feel like touching the label.
