A pressure sensitive label can be much more than just a label with information printed on one side. For many years, innovative solutions for adding information to the plain pressure sensitive label have been developed.
The demand for solutions with multiple layers of added information has increased massively over the last 10 years. This growth has been driven by heavy competition, media, and marketing, legislation, and of course innovation within the global label printing industry.
The need for added information on a label comes from various segments. To mention some of the important drivers, promotional labels, pharmaceutical and petro-chemical labels, security labels, labels containing gaming solutions, and labels constructed inline with special innovative solutions for the personal care market, may be emphasised.
Labels with multiple layers of information are primarily made in five ways:
The label construction is based on multiple web infeeds with inline multiple-sided printing. The construction is based on inline printing and lamination of the various webs.
A classic cross-over solution where a basic pressure sensitive material is slit and crossed-over to form an up to a 6-sided coupon.
Inline multi-web solution with folding towers for multiple-page-booklet constructions.
Booklet insertion/application solution
Inline printing and booklet insertion/application solution with specialised booklet unit.
Various pressure sensitive solutions
Inline multi-web solutions where you construct various pressure sensitive solutions in the process by inline application of liner glue and various front materials.
