Pressure-sensitive labels are a very effective marketing tool and are being used by most of the top beverage producers, cosmetic industry, etc. around the world. Besides clear films for ‘no-label-look’ decoration, there are many other features available: lower costs than direct print, more creative options compared to direct print or paper wet glue labels and great application performance. Special effect inks / varnishes / functional features can be built into pressure-sensitive label solutions.
Top to bottom, 360° decoration in perfect printing quality with a shrinkage ratio of up to 80% – shrink sleeves guarantee the highest level of attention and maximum flexibility for an exceptional shape of your product.
Premium printing quality due to an offset / gravure printing technique, creative finishing with unique tactile properties or metallic effects combined with attractive pearlescent lacquers realize the highest on-shelf impact for your product.
With the following promotional solutions the shrink sleeve becomes an integral part of your marketing concept: multipacks, scratch-off pads, inkjet coding, integrated collectable stickers, booklets, etc.
Stretch sleeves are ready-to-use labels which, as the name implies, are stretched and applied onto the container without the use of adhesives. Their natural elasticity is all that is required to hold them in place.
The new Triple S® technology (super stretch sleeves) allows the application of sleeves to bottles which previously could only be labeled with shrink sleeves. Triple S® represents a breakthrough in stretch sleeve technology.
Sustainable pressure-sensitive labels
The reduction of carbon and water footprints has become a major target for everyone. CCL is very pro-active about minimizing its environmental impact. CCL’s commitment to sustainability goes far beyond standard legal requirements with concepts including the use of thinner and recyclable materials, participation in closed-loop recycling initiatives, and utilizing renewable energy sources.
CCL was the first label company to launch clear pressure-sensitive labels for returnable bottles which could be washed off in industrial bottle washing machines. The use of the patented ‘WashOff’ labels minimizes water, chemical and energy consumption in bottle washing machines.
In 2005 Carlsberg was the first global brewer to benefit from this CCL innovation and other companies have since introduced their brands to the benefits of WashOff technology.
More than sixty years of growth, innovation and success has made CCL a world leader in the specialty packaging business.
