Prestige for the masses
Popularised by Michael Silverstein and Neil Fiske in their book TRADING UP, the term masstige defines products as premium but attainable. They’re considered luxury or premium products at price points that fill the gap between mid-market and super premium.

According to ‘Although these brands are not luxury brands, they still rate higher than middle-market brands on the major dimensions of luxury products. Masstige brands concentrate especially on creating symbolic benefits and prestige – they care very much about shine and therefore also about design.’

To market masstige products at retail, digital roll label printing offers maximum shelf shout thanks to the ability to print high-quality graphics and outstanding colours, intense white on metallised labels, and the widest range of Pantone colours currently available with digital printing.
