We are experts at producing-market ready prototypes, samples, sales kits, comps and other short-run packaging projects.

Forget the old adage about not judging a book by its cover. Today’s consumers really do make buying decisions based on a product’s label. We print, laminate, and die-cut the following types of labels on rolls or sheets:
PRESSURE-SENSITIVE LABELS - Matte, Gloss and Varnish Raised Print are a flexible, easy packaging solution. Creatively, the label adds bold and beautiful colorful images to your packaging. They can also be applied to cover up existing labels – making them efficient, too.
INSTANT REDEMPTION COUPON (IRC) LABELS (Peel-off) coupons are printed and adhered right to the package allowing you to offer an instant discount at point of purchase.
PERSONALIZED LABELS are based on common art or themes. We give you the flexibility to produce personalized labels, connecting you one-on-one with your buyer. Think of your short-run, personalized packaging as cost-effective research (and you might reveal a much larger market demand for your product, too).
