New Label Facestocks Give You New Selling Opportunities

I get excited when suppliers bring us new and interesting materials. We immediately gather our application engineers to discuss new custom label solutions we can take to customers. Here are a few stocks we think have great potential to land you new business.


3.5 mil Presstige GlassMate® Decal Film

Available in white or clear, this ultra-removable film can be used as a window cling or door cling alternative. The decals can be applied wet or dry and stick indefinitely, yet can easily be removed with no residue. These are great for long-standing promotions, or where you need a little more durability than a traditional cling.


Wood Veneer Labels

This stock was introduced last year and is getting a lot of ink for its use as a Jim Beam limited edition bourbon label. No doubt – it’s just cool. Available in real cherry or birch, rolls or sheets in a variety of adhesives, this hardwood veneer has the grain and texture of wood, can be pre-treated for digital printing. You can only begin to imagine the possibilities. These are great for premium foods, beverages, and natural products.


Premium Wine Label Stocks

For wines or high-end beverages, consider several wet strength stocks. Some of my new favorites include Estate #8 with a smooth finish, Cream Estate #9 with its subtle texture, Black Vellum, and Pearlized stocks with linear and diamond textures. All of these offer a premium look without premium pricing.


Dissolvable Paper with Washaway Adhesive

For short-term labeling, consider this new dissolvable paper and washaway adhesive combination that is tough enough to be printed with water-based or UV inks. This face stock will stick to – and wash away from – a variety of surfaces including plastic, stainless steel and glass. Perfect for recyclable containers, and for institutional food service packaging that requires interim labeling and date codes.
