Flexographic labels are highly versatile labels that can be applied on nearly all packages. Flexographic printing can handle a high output level making it ideal for larger orders. This printing method can work with an assortment of materials and technical capabilities such as labels, shrink-sleeves and pouches. After the initial setup costs, flexographic printing becomes more cost effective with the more labels you order and unit cost dropping dramatically as quantities increase. Setting up a flexographic press can take a while, and on reallycomplex labels, the set up time for a job can be several hours. One of the big advantages of flexographic presses is that once a job is set up on the press, it can be run at a much higher speed than a digital press. You can find flexographic labels on just about any type of product. They’re widely used for a variety of consumer package goods because they’re economical with large runs.
Digital Labels are a type of custom label with photographic-quality graphics, crisp text and vibrant colors, printed directly from a digital file. Best suited for orders of 10,000 custom labels or less, digital printing is less labor intensive and produces less setup waste than flexographic printing. From startup businesses to large-scale companies, many label buyers choose digital printing because multiple versions can be produced in the same run. Our digital press prints an expanded 6 color gamut to achieve spot color accuracy and includes opaque white which opens more options for clear and metallic substrates.
Products that face freezer or refrigerated conditions need labels that don’t break down in cold temperatures. Most adhesives have a minimum application temperature of 40-50 °F before they crystallize and become solid. Freezer adhesives can withstand temperatures to -20 °F without causing adhesion problems. We carry a variety of paper and film options so we can create a label solution that works best for you.
A removable adhesive is ideal for any situation where you need to remove the label without damaging it and the application surface. Custom removable labels can be applied to a variety of surfaces but work best on clean, dry surfaces. In comparison to permanent labels, removable labels have a weaker “tack” which allows them to be peeled off easier. We offer multiple levels of “removability” – adhesives that are designed to become permanent after a pre-determined time period, ultra-removable adhesives that require smooth surfaces and adhesives that are guaranteed to remove clean after any time period.
Custom expanded content labels are a great way to include additional information on your product without adding much bulk to the packaging. Expanded Content labels (also called booklet labels, multi-layer labels and fold-out labels) are a multi-panel pressure-sensitive label. Text and graphics can be printed on the 3 panels- the top label and two layers underneath. With no adhesive residue, expanded content labels can peel back cleanly and re-seal for repeated uses.Expanded content labels are often used for medical and pharmaceutical labels. With an expanded content label, you can also add recipes on food labels, promote sweepstakes/giveaways, offer detailed instructions and/or give multilingual information.
Double sided labels have printed information on both the front and the back of a label material. When you want to add depth to a design for your bottle labels or other clear packaging, a two-sided label is a good choice. Double sided labels are also used for products that need to have a lot of information printed on the label. Manufacturers who need to offer extra information to their customers (nutritional info, recipes, coupons, promotions, etc) will use the back of a label.
Holographic Labels add depth and luster to packaging and grabs customer’s attention. In addition to visual appeal, holographic foil can influence perceptions about your product or brand with its high-quality look and feel. These labels work well for a variety of markets like food & beverage, nutraceutical, pet products and health & beauty. We can produce holographic labels 2 distinct ways- using holographic stock or using our cold foil process with a holographic foil on any of the materials we offer.
Drum labels need to be very durable because they are applied to rough surfaces: painted steel, metal or plastic containers that often carry hazardous materials. These drums are transported and stored in harsh conditions, so these labels need to adhere to drums in all conditions. We manufacture custom weatherproof, blank, and preprinted drum labels that are IMDG certified and GHS, NFPA, OSHA and BS 5609 complaint.
Instant Redeemable Coupons (IRC) are perfect for coupons, rebates and recipes.IRC labels are a great tool to drive special promotions and reach a targeted geographic area, test a new market or highlight seasonal goods. If you’re looking to switch customers to your product, or if you want to help build brand loyalty, coupon labels might be the competitive advantage that you need.
When you want an eye-catching label for products that need a strong shelf appeal, such as household consumables, wine labels and cosmetic products, cold foil printing provides a rich metallic appeal. Cold Foil labels have multiple distinct advantages over hot-stamped foil. Cold foil can produce large solid areas and multiple colors of foil can be printed at the same time. Cold foil has a cost-effective and faster speed-to-market ratio and is more eco-friendly than hot-stamping.
Matte Labels have a non-shiny, flat texture that looks frosted with a nice matte sheen. Matte labels are popular among brand owners because of their versatility. They can be luxurious or natural looking depending on the design, use, and placement. The sheen of matte labels is great for displaying product or company information. The face stock is smooth and won’t glare like their glossy counterparts so it doesn’t detract from your product or other packaging. Matte labels are known for their ability to add a luxurious feel to a product. They add a touch of class to your already luxurious product. Matte is often associated with organic products for its natural texture (versus the artificial shine of gloss labels). The food & beverage and bath & body industries are two sectors that frequently use matte labels for this purpose.

Metallic / Foil
Foil labels are an effective way to add instant visual impact to anything you want your target audience to immediately see. Foil labels work in a variety of markets like food, beverage, health & beauty and nutritional. With the use of other inks, we can tint the metallic label material to create other colors that go perfectly with your brand, product or sales strategy. Metalized silver paper or film tend to be more cost-effective alternatives to hot or cold foil stamping. You can also mask specific foil areas with white underprinting so only parts of the label are foil for a creative label effect.
Dry peel labels are a type of label that can be peeled away and removed from the product container or package. An adhesive is used to temporarily hold the label in place but is limited enough to easily peel the label off. Dry peel labels are often used for instant redeemable coupons at point of purchase or to provide additional copy. Another label can be positioned underneath a dry peel label, so when they’re are peeled off there is still content that remains on the container.
Clear labels are one of our most versatile products since they can be used for most markets and designed in a variety of ways. Known for their ability to create a “no label” look, clear labels are also moisture resistant making them an excellent option for food, beverage, bath, and other products that face wet conditions. While transparent labels are not right for every product, they can work great for some. The benefit of having a clear label is that the label can be designed to allow the product inside the packaging to be part of the presentation itself.

That label can then be opened via a re-closable adhesive strip

These highly attractive labels are printed on a flexible shrink film that reduces in size through the application of heat. Once the film shrinks, it conforms tightly to the shape of the container or product, creating a sleek label and product package.
Folding cartons are a good packaging choice for health care products, cigarettes, dry foods, and frozen/chilled foods, especially in emerging markets. While on the surface, folding carton converting appears similar to the label printing process – both involve laying ink on paper – there are some key differences that set it apart, namely substrate usage, creasing and diecutting.
Hang Tags are small tags attached to products, like clothes, with information about the brand name, logo and origin, etc. Generally, clothing hang tags are made by paper or plastic and hang on products by string, rope or metal chain.
