Paragon Label winnner of technical, environmental awards

January 24, 2014

Paragon Label – a provider of digital and flexographic pressure sensitive label printing, precision foiling, embossing and rotary screen printing services – has won more than three dozen national and international awards for technical excellence in label printing and for its innovative environmental practices.

While some 90 percent of Paragon’s labels are destined for the wine industry, the firm also produces labels for the spirits industry, cosmetic firms, nutraceutical suppliers, olive oil and balsamic vinegar producers as well as a candle-making company. The company has adapted laser technology, using equipment obtained from the former Lasercraft Inc., to add dynamic dimensions to the production of wine labels.

Led by Founder Jason Grossman, chief executive officer, the 25-employee company operates five flexographic presses, one digital offset press, three off-line finishing machines, and one laserweb device in a 55,000-square-foot printing plant shared with parent company Mrs. Grossman’s Paper Co.

Early this year, Paragon entered into a joint venture with Kent, WA, USA-based Vintners Global Resource to provide small- and medium-sized wineries with labels, bottles and packaging supplies. Paragon is also expanding its reach to new winegrowing regions in Arizona and Colorado.
