Film Labeling 

Just focused on selling traditional paper labels?  If so, you could be missing out on profitable film label business.  Plus, if you're not supporting your customers with film media solutions, your competition will.  We can help!

Films represent roughly 10% of the total Variable Information (VI) market.  Films are used in a variety of market segments including healthcare, food, retail, industrial chemical and consumer durables to name a few.  Applications vary from traditional track and trace to warning, identification, instructions and branding.  Government regulations, product safety and the increasing demands on the ability to track and trace products are helping to drive the use of more durable film label products.

Why use a film label versus paper?  The primary reasons to use film media in a labeling application generally include one or more of the following reasons:

  1. Durability requirement
  2. Appearance
  3. Conformability
  4. Flexibility

Over the past year, we have made considerable investments to provide our customers with short run quick turnaround film label solutions.  Equipment upgrades at our Cleveland location and our recent acquisition has greatly enhanced our film handling capabilities.  We are able to process and supply various film types including polyester, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyethylene, vinyl and more exotic films as applications warrant.  Each of these film types have unique properties.  The application, printing and converting are key considerations when selecting a film type.
