Slim Nation goes global with great labels!

Dynamic entrepreneur and energetic business man Aaron Zamykal is passionate about developing well-balanced weight loss programs to help Australians control and maintain their weight in a healthy and sustainable way. In 2011, Zamykal got together with a team of leading Australian food technologists and developed a variety of great tasting Meal Replacement Shakes under the brand name Slim Nation, Intelligent Weight Loss.

Zamykal and his team of experts created an advanced weight loss formula, prebiotic and high in fibre, with 24 essential vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. To provide even more value, Zamykal also teamed up with dieticians and nutritionists to offer professional online support through the website

When it was time to label their product, Aaron turned to Label Power to print his labels. He asked for professional advice regarding material stock as well as varnish or laminate selection, in order to produce striking and durable labels. However, another key factor for him was  turnaround time. He needed his labels to be ready by “yesterday”.

Following a free consultation, Label Power recommended the labels be produced on a glossy synthetic stock with special BOPP laminate. That way the  the batch number and expiry date could be directly printed onto the labels at the time of manufacture. . Using their new HP Indigo digital label press, Label Power printed labels for Slim Nation's original three flavour varieties (vanilla, chocolate and strawberry) and had the entire job ready just two days after the artwork was approved.

When their initial run of meal replacement shakes was close to selling out, Zamykal went into phase two, adding 3 more delicious varieties (Tropical Mango, Caffe Latte and Green Tea Frappe) and updated all 6 label designs. This was economically viable thanks to Label Power's digital printing capabilities – . With Label Power's HP Indigo label press, Zamykal was able to order a small test run, physically label tubs of all six products, evaluate consumer reactions, and work with Label Power's art department to refine and optimize the label designs before proceeding to full production.  Slim Nation now has six exciting varieties / label designs and didn't pay for a single film or plate charge at any stage in the process.

“There are many things that you need to take care of when launching a new product. I would say that the key to doing it successfully is to make sure you are surrounded by people that are not only experts in their field, but more importantly, that you can trust”, Zamykal comments. “Label Power was part of the team who helped us to put our product out there and we are very happy with the final result.”

Slim Nation, Intelligent Weigh Loss Meal Replacement Shakes can be found in selected stores and can be purchased online at where recipies and diet tips are also available free of charge.
