The richness and variety of SCALA images allows for endless possibilities in the creation of merchandising and packaging. Whether they be in conjunction with an exhibit or event, or whether they be products created for specialized markets or for mass markets we can help find the perfect image. Below are just a few examples of different products.
Packaging to reinforce a message
Sometime the packaging simply has to confirm and reinforces an already known fact. Most Italians and surely all Milanesi will have heard of Cova, the traditional & well established baker of artisanal Panettoni (Christmas cakes). The packaging was not intended to drive clients to select the product, available in the store not in mass chains, but rather to recall and reinforce the values of artisanal, tradition, elegance, and almost equate by proximity to iconic status.
Packaging to remind of form as well as function
The Alessi brand has become a household term synonymous with beautiful high end Italian design. Thanks to Scala images the different styles of silverware are represented and immediately visually set apart as well as set as having an artistic value as well as a functional one.
Wine bottle labels to recall the territory
Teruzzi & Puthod is a winery in one of the most famous of medieval Tuscan towns: San Gimignano. They chose to add miniatures from the British Library collection to the labels for their precious bottles of wine to honor their town which had its maximum development during medieval times.
Iconic art for ice cream flavors
Ice cream company Ledo launched a series of package ice cream where every flavor is associated to a color or a mood. The summer picnic mood and the vivid colors found in Seurat’s painting “La grande Jatte” are associated with the “wild berries” flavor. The intense gold in Klimt’s work “The Kiss” is associated with the flavors of cream, chocolate and hazelnuts (possibly because the famous italian chocolate “bacio”- bacio in Italian is the word for kiss – is chocolate and hazelnut.

The World of Philately
The first adhesive postage stamp was invented in 1837 by Rowland Hill, a school teacher from England. Since then stamps have been adopted by all nations, and the choice of what images to use on them has always been taken quite seriously. SCALA is pleased to regularly provide many images for stamps throughout the years and across many borders.
