Durables and security labeling applications typically require exceptional performance and special attributes, such as environmental resistance, long-lasting adhesion and product authentication capabilities. As such, labelstock solutions for these end-uses can be more costly to produce. With limited options available, converters have historically ordered master rolls of paper and film labelstocks, which can increase their upfront costs and reduce valuable warehouse space if stock goes unused. UPM Raflatac’s new Small Roll Service allows converters to order single rolls, available in widths of 6.5 inches by 1,500 feet, of 11 of its Durables and Security products.
“With our new Small Roll Service, label converters can provide durables and security end-users with high-quality, speed-to-market labelstock solutions,” says Trevor Richardson, business development manager, specials, UPM Raflatac. “Additionally, our customers can take advantage of our new service to run product trials and fill small orders at a lower cost with less risk, increasing their flexibility and profitability.”
