Make Sure Your Product’s Identity Stays Attached!

So you have a great label design, and are ready to take your brand to market. One of the most important things to consider after design is the kind of label adhesive to use.

No matter how much time and effort you put into designing your label, if it becomes detached. then all of your hard work will be for nothing. Why take a chance on your product losing its identity, leading to lost sales and no brand recognition?

There are several options available when choosing an adhesive.

What to consider:

Will your product be subject to temperature extremes or be sensitive to light?

Will it be attached to glass, cardboard, foam or a porous surface?

How much tack do you want the label to have after being applied.
