When it comes to press acquisition, there’s been something of a paradigm shift in the narrow web label industry. While flexography has long been the dominant print method, digital technology emerged as a competing force, giving converters a choice in technologies. Today, however, in more and more print shops throughout the world, flexo and digital presses are running side by side, giving converter’s added flexibility and increased profits.
Join us on May 28, at 2 PM EST for a FREE webinar, where our panel of experts will delve into what’s driving the “Hybrid Pressroom,” and how having both flexo and digital presses can improve your business.

This depends on the timely spread of disposable hygiene and hygienically optimized products at the point of attack.

Now more than ever, retailers are pushing their suppliers to provide sustainable packaging in order to reduce their impact on the environment. While touting a product's eco-friendliness has become a popular marketing tool, questions remain as to the degree of impact these "green" claims have on consumers. Does a sustainable package really motivate a consumer to buy? Which claims resonate the most? Can a sustainability message actually have a negative impact on the consumer?
Join us on August 22, 2013, at 1 PM EST for a FREE webinar, where our panel of sustainability experts will address how consumers view sustainability claims, as well as share their insights into how the drive for eco-friendliness is effecting a package's design, manufacture and position in the retail market.
