Achieve More with the Most Popular Packaging Labels
Custom pressure sensitive labels offer a great way to make your products stand out and remain the go-to option for many producers across a wide swath of industries and specialized lines.
According to recent research, pressure sensitive (PS) labels command nearly 80 percent of the demand for packaging labels. It’s easy to see why. With a slew of benefits, custom pressure sensitive labels give product consumers multiple options that can all impact the bottom line.
It starts with shelf appeal, or how likely the label is to draw attention for the brand or company when lined up against competitors in a retail environment. With no limits to design choices or color, pressure sensitive labels can deliver distinctive graphics that convey a unique message or personality for each individual product line.
Durability is another commonly-cited trait regarding the popularity of PS labels. Available in traditional paper, or premium film versions, PS labels also need to be able to hold up under a wide variety of conditions. From abrasions and scratches in transit, to the steamy heat of a shower or the icy cold of a beverage cooler, PS labels will be challenged by many potential types of stimuli that could impact their performance. Custom pressure sensitive labels are counted on to meet those standards as well as safety and regulatory compliance requirements.
Versatility is another hallmark of PS labels. Whether it’s extreme durability — for automotive applications for instance — or distinct graphics, the potential product uses for PS labels runs across virtually every retail segment.
Pressure sensitive labels also remain perhaps the most viable cost-effective option. PS labels feature designed images commonly printed in large quantities on a flexographic press on the chosen material (paper or film) with the backing of an adhesive. This ‘roll’ is printed, cut, and trimmed; true to its name, when pressure is applied it adheres to the chosen packing surface. Because of this manufacturing process, savings can be found in the bulk production and application of PS labels.

As the cornerstone of The Kennedy Group’s sustainability efforts, the PureVue® Portfolio gives consumer packaged goods companies the ability to enhance sustainability and display a commitment to those efforts without sacrificing brand recognition or shelf appeal.
Designed to improve the recyclability of PET containers, PureVue® conforms to the APR Design(™) Guide for Plastics Recyclability. This means PureVue® labels will separate cleanly from the PET material during recycling, and lock in inks used on the label to prevent staining of the wash water of the process. The end result is food-grade PET flakes, which enable bottle-to-bottle recycling, a conservation of virgin PET resources, and less waste going to landfills.
