STOCK
The face stock is the top layer of a pressure sensitive label. It comes in film, foil and other materials. We have over 140 stocks in inventory and if we do not have what you need our Technical Service team can special order the correct material.

Our Customer Service Team can help you identify the best stock to use for your application and forward a sample for testing.

 

 

ADHESIVES
Adhesives come in two broad categories - permanent and removable. However, even some removable adhesives become permanent over time. Not all adhesives bond well to all surfaces. Our Customer Service Team can work with you to identify the correct adhesive for your application and even send a sample for testing.

Some Questions to consider:
Extensive usage? Indoor/Outdoor?
Sun exposure? Chemical exposure?
Abrasion? Temperature? Substrate?
Plastic / metal / cloth / brick / organic application?
We also produce non-adhesive products.

Special shapes include bottleneck labels, anniversary seals, starbursts, leaves, arrows and even a boot!. Our Customer Service Team can help you find a die to match your shape or help create your own..

PRINTING TECHNIQUES
Flexography - a printing method that utilizes flexible raised plates affixed to rotary cylinders which are inked with fast drying inks from an anilox roll and the plate comes in contact with the printing surface.
Hot Stamp - This method uses heat and pressure to bond the imprint film to the face stock - giving a very upscale appearance.
Hot Stamp/Flexo Combination - Both printing processes used on one label.
Offset - A printing method using an indirect image transfer. The image is transferred from a plate to a blanket which comes in contact with the printing substrate. Our imprinted laser sheets utilize this method of printing.

INK COLORS
20 Standard Colors Color Matching Four Color Process
Most of the inks used today are transparent water based inks. The color appears to be affected by the color of the facestock it is applied to.

TYPESTYLES
The typestyle you choose can say a lot about your product or service. Determine the purpose of the label to help you decide on the typeface. Choose from the entire Adobe font library. Most typefaces are available in Italic, Bold, Bold Italic or Condensed. There is no charge for Curved Type.
