The following 4 points have to be on the label per USDA regulations:
1. Product Name:
2. Inspection Legend and establishment number
Attached below (USDA stamp)
3. Handling statement:
4. Net weight statement
Standard size is a 2 inches x 3 inches. However, a little off wouldn't be a big deal.
We are not too keen with the logo design of just the words (the font isn't really what we're looking for) but the face of Meeshu is kind of a home feeling addition we feel, however, we're very open minded.
Regulations require the terms “net weight” or “net wt.” The net quantity of contents statement must appear in the lower 30 percent of the principal display panel of label
• In lines generally parallel to the base of the containers.
• In distinct contrast with other material on the package.
Now when designing the Product name, the following also required:
In general, words in product names may be of a different size, color, or type, but in all cases the words must be prominent, conspicuous, and legible. No word in a product name (in this case Meeshu's Meech) should be printed in letters that are less than one-third the size of the largest letter used in any other word of the product name. For example, for a product labeled Chili Mac—Beans, Macaroni and Beef in Sauce, “Chili Mac” is the fanciful name, and “Beans, Macaroni, and Beef in Sauce” is the product name. No letter in “Chili Mac” may be smaller than one-third the size of the largest letter in “Chili Mac.” Furthermore, no letter in the true product name, (i.e., “Beans, Macaroni, and Beef Sauce,”) may be smaller than one-third of the largest letter in the true product name.
