Food Overview

We can Help you Produce food labels that
generate sales

Food labels are unique in that they must convey branding and grab the consumers’ attention, while also providing important information about the contents and potential uses of the product. That’s why you spend so much time designing a label that’s both informative and aesthetically pleasing. That’s where we come in. We take your carefully designed artwork and translate it into a beautifully printed label.

Here are a few of the food label challenges we tackle every day:

  • Cold temperature adhesive and moisture resistant facestocks for frozen food packaging.
  • Flexible packaging that prevents ingredient migration and promotes dry food shelf life
  • Specialized varnish or lamination to protect your label against the elements

Some thoughts from our
Application Experts

Food labels must often provide Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulated information. Of course, this just covers the basics. You also need your label to reinforce your branding and grab the consumer’s attention. To stand out in a crowded marketplace, you’ll need to accomplish all this and more. We can help!

Our Applications Experts are standing by to help you create a beautiful, functional label that will help grow sales!

01. Materials

There’s a wide variety of materials to choose from. Our Applications Experts are here to help. We’ll help you select a material that is both aesthetically pleasing and suited to your product and application conditions.

02. Adhesives

Each material uses a specific type of adhesive. Choosing the right adhesive is important as different application and storage conditions require certain adhesives.
We ask the right questions to ensure that the proper adhesive is used. This will ensure that the label can be properly applied to your product and won’t flag after application.

03. Instant Redeemable Coupon

An Instant Redeemable Coupon (IRC) communicates valuables offers to your customers right as they are making a purchase decision. Ask our applications experts for more information today.
