Every year, winter weather requires us to make plans and preparations for both our personal and professional lives. Frozen water pipes, school closures, and icy streets are just a few of the yearly issues winter can bring. If you live in a part of the country where freezing temperatures are seasonally common it's just a fact of life.
What you may not have considered is the effect colder temperatures can have on your labels.
We've posted before about how to avoid problems when applying your labels in winter and fall, when cold and damp conditions are more problematic. A great supplement to our advice is a short but excellent write up from Spinnaker Coating, a pressure sensitive material manufacturer. As a manufacturer they have a unique authority when it comes to a label's behavior in the colder months. Read about cold weather adhesive failure, winter label storage, label failure, and shipping labeled products in winter on the Spinnaker Coating website.
