Jones soda (of which I do own a few shares of) is offering the feature of creating your personalized label
on a flavor of choice. As of this writing the feature is offered for 29.99 + S&H.
The order process is pretty simple really. Sign up for an account, upload an image, and pay the bill. The image to upload can be anything you like really. You can upload from a url, or from a local file on your computer. The image needs to be 2.25″ wide by 1.875″ tall at 300dpi (or 675 x 563 pixels at 300dpi). If you are unsure of what those sizes are, Jones provides sample templates of jpeg, TIF, and bitmat formats to measure up. They also give additional helps by providing image resizing instructions for Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, and Macromedia Fireworks.
After you have your image uploaded, you also have the option to add some text to an area just above the nutrition panel on the back. It’s plain text and allows up to 7 lines of 50 characters each (including carriage returns).
After your customisation you are sent to a page to finish adding the billing options, and to choose your flavor. The flavors are limited but the FAQ
states “We rotate the flavors regularly, so check the site often to see if your favorite flavor is available.”
One of the more questionable flavors this month (Nov) is Turkey + Gravy
?? No thanks. I’ll pass.
You can’t mix flavors, or images. 1 flavor and 1 image per case. It’s supposed to take 3-4 weeks for delivery. We’ll have to do an update on that. I ordered mine on Nov 15.
If your interested Jones provides a photo gallery page where you can view labels of already submitted images. It’s not entirely clear but it appears as if there is a photo/label contest going on. The winners photo will make it to officially released cases to retailers.
