PS Label Application
Pressure sensitive labeling is a cost-effective decoration that will improve your brand image on the shelf. Pressure sensitive technology provides the kind of visual impact other label technologies cannot, such as dynamic label shapes or a crystal clear “no label” look. The high-quality printing, variety of film and paper face stocks, multiple finishing, and custom-die cutting options offer creative and design flexibility on virtually any container type and shape.
Pressure sensitive (PS) labels have adhesive on one side and are applied directly to the container. Because the labels are preprinted flat, they have excellent resolution and color. Application to the container can be accomplished through the use of automatic, inline equipment or with an automatic, rotary labeler.
At Contract Labeling, our experience in Pressure Sensitive Label Application provides these labeling advantages:
- CLS guarantees our customers a perfect performance of the decoration. No wrinkles, bubbles or damaged labels. PS labels are resistant to humidity, even in ice water.
- No-label look decoration which is not possible with paper wet glue labels.
- Transparent PS labels provide a luxury appeal.
- PS label application is the cleaner process. The consumer will not find traces of glue on the bottle.
- Pre-decoration of bottles before filling them is recommended. PS labels are resistant to rinsing and pasteurization.
- Easier, cleaner, efficient and flexible.
Pressure sensitive labels apply equally well to different types of packages. It is an ideal choice for labeling plastic bottles, jars, and tubes. At Contract Labeling Service we use state-of-the-art equipment that can label front and back in a single pass or provide a “wrap around” up to a 370-degree application. Every package can be made more appealing with a pressure sensitive label.
Types of Pressure Sensitive Label Printing
One of the most popular labeling methods, Pressure Sensitive labels, are an excellent choice for almost any product and work especially well on contoured and squeezable bottles. Pressure sensitive labels are an optimal choice for bottles of products in the food, beverage, wine and spirits, household chemicals, and automotive industries. Pressure sensitive label application can also offer products a high end “no label look.”
Pressure sensitive label application to jars provides an eye-catching and visually appealing product. Jar labels are exposed to a variety of temperatures and must perform impeccably from application throughout the supply chain, to the consumer’s home. Jars have complex geometry, including tapered sidewalls. Selecting PS label application from Contract Labeling is selecting a vendor aware of the challenges and capable of eliminating the issues associated with labeling jars.
Squeezable packaging is quickly gaining popularity due to the ease and convenience of dispensing the contents. This packaging relies on the ability of the pressure sensitive label to flex with the package while maintaining its integrity. Pressure sensitive label application is the ideal application for squeezable products. The use of PS tube labels is on the rise due to lead times required for preprinted tubes and the limitations of colors and designs. At Contract Labeling Service we have experience in PS label application of tubes and understand they are the ultimate combination of aesthetics, application, and on-package performance.
