Topflight expands multi-ply capabilities

June 2, 2014

Today, there is a greater demand for more extensive information on the packaging of products consumers are buying. Topflight, a label and specialty converter headquartered in Glen Rock, PA, USA, is now manufacturing extended multi-ply, pressure sensitive labels to help customers meet the ever-expanding labeling and regulatory requirements established by the FDA, and expected by the consumer.
Product packaging plays a critical role in ensuring the safe delivery of products, communicating product information and providing important usage instructions and warnings, sometimes required in multiple languages. Other emerging uses for multi-ply labeling are UPC and 2D bar coding for additional functionality, rebate information and instant redeemable coupons (IRC).

Multi-ply labels fit more text into a smaller footprint, allowing companies to comply with applicable laws without affecting package design or branding. “We continue to invest in broadening our offerings for expanded content labels to help alleviate the increasing pressure our customers are facing for more print space,” says Brad Harner, VP of sales and marketing. Topflight can now manufacture labels with up to five plies, yielding nine printable panels. Clean or dry release coatings facilitate the opening of each panel, and a consumer-friendly peel tab makes opening and re-closing the label easy, with no loss of tack. Labels can be manufactured with either permanent adhesive to form a hinge, or removable adhesive for coupon applications.
