Troubleshooting cold-weather labeling problems during storage and shipping

Oct 17, 2019 09:00 AM

Winter weather impacts both our personal and professional lives — frozen water pipes, school closures, icy streets. And if you live in an area where freezing temperatures are the norm, you can add labeling problems to that list. Labels that apply and perform perfectly during summer months will fail when the temperature drops if you don’t take the proper precautions.

How To Include FDA Supplement Facts With Tabular Labels

Apr 22, 2015 04:00 AM

For dietary supplement containers with limited label space, including all the information required by the FDA can be a Herculean task. The Supplement Facts panel alone can occupy the entire available surface of some labels, leaving no room for additional information required by the FDA.

If you somehow manage to cram every bit of required information onto your labels, the overall appearance of the final design may not be very appealing. Without a strong shelf appeal, your brand will have little chance competing on the store shelf alongside more eye-catching products.

Finding a Compatible Label Packaging Partner

Jul 17, 2014 07:00 AM

Print Brokers and Contract Packaging companies (co-packers) are facing increased demand from brand owners to become true turnkey, one stop shops.

Brand managers are looking for a co-packer that can facilitate all their filling and packaging needs, to act as a single point of contact. This does not necessarily mean the co-packer must invest in every service under the sun, though, when the same services can be offered through close relationships with partner companies.

In the same way, brokers are frequently called upon to make referrals to packaging suppliers and fulfillment companies to round out their print offerings.

When should you order your labels, and what preparations need to be made before you do? All too often, packaging is an afterthought. With containers, closures, and labels all needing to work together, you should always plan ahead.

As you take a million little steps leading to your final launch, remember to include label packaging in the early-to-mid planning stages of your product development cycle.

"Fortune favors the prepared mind." - Louis Pasteur

Since the end result of all your planning and hard work is your product on the store shelf, it's not uncommon to assume labels are the last step, or close to it. We see this fairly often with new businesses, but even long time customers can fall into this trap. Here are 4 reasons to plan ahead.

4 Buzzwords to Bypass on Your Label Packaging

Mar 20, 2014 08:01 PM

Nothing kills a good word or phrase like overuse.

The words on this list are not inherently bad, but they have been hijacked by big business and completely diluted by years of cynical marketing. Even though they may perfectly describe your products, your products do not exist in a vacuum. And depending on your market or channel, you may inadvertently harm your brand by displaying these words prominently on your labels.
