Pressure Sensitive Labels

that Sticks

Pressure sensitive labels offer a high-end look that’s perfect for showing off your product.

Brand building with pressure sensitive labels doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your sustainability goals.

We have developed a variety of pressure sensitive options that support recycling efforts and can meet APR (Association of Plastic Recyclers) guidelines, making them a win for brand owners and the environment

Environmentally Friendly Options

  • Downgauged (facestock & liner): more labels per roll, reduce changeovers and shipping weight
  • PCR Facestock: contains 30% post-consumer waste
  • PLA Facestock: renewable resource based film
  • Recyclable: easily separated from PET containers in recycling systems
  • Recycling (liners): sources for PET liners

Achieve Operational Efficiencies

Pressure sensitive labels can maximize manufacturing and application processes for short and long run production volumes.
